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.

Superior characteristics

Technical Properties

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. It’s also important to understand that whether you choose clay or concrete, the installation cost will be the same, meaning that clay is a much more worthwhile long term investment. We continue to expand our options with new products, new styles, and new colours, and have selections suitable for all circumstance and applications.
