Are you considering adding a hardscape patio to your outdoor living area? If so you’ve probably discovered that there are a lot of options when it comes to materials. Brick pavers have become increasingly popular and their many advantages have made them the ideal solution. Brick pavers are manufactured of either clay or concrete aggregates.
Clay Paver Baked in Durability
Clay pavers are heat cured at temperatures exceeding two thousand degrees. This process makes them both strong and durable which helps reduce the maintenance expense due to cracking or discoloring.
Clay pavers come in a variety of colors. While some materials will fade dramatically over time and need to be replaced, clay pavers will retain their natural color permanently. They aren't colored by artificial dye or pigment, so they won't be susceptible to ultraviolet light.
Clay pavers’ colors are not affected by the sun’s ultraviolet rays so their color won’t fade or change. They are very low maintenance and easy to care for. Most paver styles come in a variety of colors, which makes it easy to add a design to your project.Brick pavers are manufactured of either clay or concrete aggregates that are heat cured at temperatures exceeding two thousand degrees.

Concrete Paver the affordable alternative
Concrete pavers are extremely dense units which possess exceptional strength and durability, superior stability under severe loads, and are unaffected by the extremes of heat and frost. Each unit has joints that allow for a small amount of movement without cracking. Factory made pavers last for decades.
Manufactured to tight dimensional tolerances, pavers are stronger than regular poured concrete surfaces and more durable than black asphalt. They can take more abuse and last for years. An interlocking paving system allows for expansion and contraction without producing surface cracks, unlike monolithic concrete surfaces and stamped concrete.
