Paver Stone FAQ

These are some the questions we get asked while out in the field.

What is the difference between Pavers and brick?

Pavers are a concrete or porcelain based product and they are shaped in molds for extremely precise and consistent sizing. Pavers are cured in factory towers for 42-72 hours, then go through an additional treatment in a hydration chamber to create an extremely durable (ASTM 8,000psi) and dense (ASTM 3-5% max absorption rate) product. Pavers are installed on aggregate road base and sharp-angular bedding sand and are available in hundreds of different colors, designs, and patterns. Every Paver we install in guaranteed for life from cracking and breaking.
Bricks are a clay based product and are baked in a kiln. Bricks are typically available in one size and a couple of different colors and styles. Bricks are mortar set and provide no guarantees.
