How do you choose between concrete or clay paving? Here are the pros and cons:

Concrete

  • Relatively cheap.
  • Wide choices of shapes and sizes are available.
  • Full textured blocks and patterns are available.
  • Wide choice of block depths, from 40mm.
  • Colours fade over time.
  • Aggregate will be exposed after sometime.
  • Long lasting.

Clay

  • Prices are usually higher than concrete and colours do differ in prices.
  • Very hard wearing.
  • They are made of natural earthy colours that will not fade.
  • Prone to moss, but easily cleaned.
  • Offers low maintenance.
  • Strong water and weather resistant properties.
  • They are mostly rectangle with different sizes.
  • Size tolerance is quite variable due to firing process and has been separated into two
    variations thus PA & PB.
  • Very hard to cut.
  • Will probably outlast all of us, and our children, and probably their children as well!
