Why clay

Why Clay Beats Concrete

Choosing paving materials, especially for driveways, is an important decision. When it comes to driveways, two of the most popular materials are Clay and Concrete. Either will do the job but there are some distinct benefits that Clay has over concrete. So, in our opinion, there is only one winner in the great Clay v Concrete debate.

Sustainable Clay

Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly

Naturally replenishing and extracted from local sources, Clay Paving is manufactured from natural clays, sands and water and contains no toxin, allergenic or noxious substances. Unlike concrete that is mixed aggregates - combined cement, sand and stone and then allowed to dry. Clay pavers are made from the same naturally occurring material as many household items such as plates, cups and plant-pots. Clay is fired in kilns at high temperatures to create durable long lasting products.

Extensive range of colours that don’t fade

Clay pavers are made from natural clay and sands and contain no artificial colours or pigments. The firing process of Clay pavers at high temperatures in a kiln keeps their colours fresh and lively over the period of their lives and ensures they are not affected by UV light that fades concrete paving.

The result is a warm colour and natural beauty that will not fade over time. As Concrete Pavers fade and deteriorate, the technical superiority of Clay shines through, outperforming concrete in every way adding long term financial value to your property.

An initial investment in Clay is slightly more than some of the cheaper types of block paving but over the lifetime of a patio or driveway, clay offers superior value for money.

We continue to expand our options with new products, new styles, and new colours, and have selections suitable for all circumstance and applications.
