A new video on BIA's YouTube channel demonstrates for landscape professionals and homeowners the proper installation techniques for clay brick pavers. The video - "Installing Clay Pavers” - covers the unique steps for laying clay pavers on a sand setting bed, including measuring modules, laying chalk lines, and proper joint spacing.
“While fired clay brick pavers do last much longer and retain their color much better than other paving surfaces, proper installation is critical for optimal appearance and performance — just as they are for every paving surface,” said Ray Leonhard, BIA’s president and CEO.
This new 18-minute video combines shared content from the Brick Industry Association and the School for Advanced Segmental Paving in Franksville, Wisconsin. More detailed instructions with graphics can be found in BIA Technical Note 14A: Paving Systems Using Clay Pavers on a Sand Setting Bed.
Additional BIA paving resources for landscape designers and installation guides for homeowners may be found on BIA's website.
