In the U.S., Americans have used clay brick pavers since the earliest colonial days. Some pavers are still in service after 200 years. Today, many architects, homeowners, builders, designers and city planners prefer clay brick pavers over other surfaces because of their superior color retention, unmatched durability, strength, design options and low maintenance. For homeowners, clay pavers can transform garden pathways, driveways and patios. For larger hardscape projects, today’s flexible paving systems are an ideal surface for adding warmth, elegance and smoothness to sidewalks, patios, plazas and roadways that handle vehicular traffic. Genuine clay brick is also environmentally-friendly and an excellent long term value.
