Ready to upgrade your outdoor living area? DIY-friendly clay pavers are a great choice to easily transform your backyard into an outdoor oasis. Authentic clay pavers don't fade in color, are the most durable paving option, and come in tons of different sizes and colors to bring your design to life.
Clay brick pavers come in a ton of shapes and colors to match any aesthetic. Unlike concrete pavers, clay brick will never fade in color. Since the color of a clay unit is literally fired through the body of the unit, at almost 2000°F it does not fade or require sealers like concrete units do. Since clay pavers are made from clay and shale, which are natural, raw materials, clay pavers feature a rich, warm color that other materials cannot mimic.
Authentic clay pavers are much stronger and more durable than concrete, and are less prone to deterioration. Most clay pavers have strengths exceeding 10,000 psi, making them some of the strongest and most durable paving materials available. Clay pavers also resist salt and freezing more consistently than concrete pavers. If you're looking for a low-maintenance paver that will last, clay pavers are the way to go.
Authentic clay pavers are a great way to elevate your backyard. Homeowners often use them for garden pathways, driveways, sidewalks, patios, garden walls, and much more because of their natural beauty, superior color retention, and low-maintenance requirements.
