Normally brick pavers are manufactured from clay, that is heat treated in extremely high temperatures for hardening. Although they come in a variety of sizes, you will most likely recognize them by their more common rectangle shapes. Brick pavers are known for their “aged” appearance, and is often desirable.

Stone Pavers are made from natural quarried stone. The common materials are travertine, limestone, granite, bluestone, marble, and many other varieties of stone.  While stone pavers are much more expensive, the concrete paver alternative allows you the same look, quality, design, and flexibility in budget.

Composite Pavers are made using plastics and scrap tires to manufacture with less carbon and energy use in the manufacturing process. Composite maybe an option depending on your overall objective and where you will be installing the pavers. One of the biggest advantages of using composite pavers is weight. Composite pavers weigh only 9 pounds per square feet as opposed to 4 times that amount of their stone alternatives. This makes composite pavers attractive when being used for rooftops or other areas where weight would be a factor.
