Clay pavers are a color fast and sustainable material that provides longevity and low maintenance aesthetics to a project. Pavers can vary from heavy vehicular, pedestrian and light traffic to permeable, ADA paving. Natural stone varieties can also be fabricated for flooring to provide ranges of color and finishes to assist in slip resistance and compliance codes.

Benefits of Clay vs. Concrete Pavers

Clay pavers are a color-fast installation that last the life of a project. With varying installation systems, clay pavers offer flexibility wearing course. Clay Pavers are made from clay or shale and kiln fired at over 2,000 degrees. This offers a rich color throughout the body of the entire brick that will never fade. Concrete is cured for a surface applied color and concrete aggregate in the body of the paver that may fade as early as 6 months after installation due to UV exposure.

Cost savings are found over time with little to no maintenance, no fading and high density which eliminate chippage and cracking. The density of clay pavers allows for no absorption. Concrete pavers absorb water and other particles in the air which often lead to mold and efflorescing.

Clay Pavers Concrete Pavers
Compressive Strength > 26,000 psi 8,000 psi
Water Absorption < 3% 5% Maximum
Freeze/Thaw Durability Excellent Average
Abrasion Resistance Excellent Good
Color Retention Excellent Poor
Efflorescence None Common
Stain Resistance Excellent Poor
Maintenance None Sealing Recommended
Life Span 100+ Years 10 to 20 Years
Sustainability Excellent Average

Pedestrian and Light Vehicular vs. Heavy Vehicular

There are two specifications for clay paving brick. ASTM C902 outlines the requirements for Pedestrian and Light Traffic paving brick and ASTM C1272 covers brick pavers for Heavy Vehicular Traffic uses.

Efflorescence & Cleaning

Efflorescence occurs when clay pavers absorb water containing soluble salts. The salts get left behind on the paver surface when the water evaporates. The salt source typically stems from the water rather than the paver itself. The most common source for salts in a paving system is deicing salts or newly poured concrete. Other factors include aggregates, sands, screenings and soft water. Screenings made from limestone contain carbonate that often cause efflorescence. The best way to remedy efflorescence is to avoid using materials that contain soluble salts.

Permeable Pavers

Permeable pavements are made with clay pavers on an aggregate setting bed, an open-graded aggregate base, and an open-graded subbase. This paving system offers environmental protection and storm water management. Permeable clay pavers are an effective method of meeting stringent stormwater management requirements. The use of permeable clay brick pavements has shown to be cost- effective in new development and redevelopment since such pavements reduce or eliminate the need for storm sewers and detention ponds, while providing more land for buildings and other structures.

Some form of stormwater management is required in almost any contemporary development. In developments with impervious pavements, stormwater management consists of inlets, culverts, swales, retention ponds and detention basins, and the land to place those items on. Permeable pavement is a completely different approach in which stormwater is absorbed into pavement that is built as part of the development. Because permeable pavement effectively manages stormwater, it reduces or eliminates the need for specialized stormwater facilities.


The highly permeable aggregate that fills the joints is what gives the pavement surface as a whole its permeability, rather than the shape of the paver. In permeable pavements, spacers (lugs on clay pavers are larger to maintain a uniform joint width of 1/4 in. or wider. In contrast, pavements made with a sand setting bed have sand- filled joints as narrow as 1/16 in. The joint fill aggregate for permeable pavements is open-graded for high permeability, with particles small enough to fit into the paver joints but large enough to meet filter criteria with the underlying setting bed aggregate. The aggregate is commonly specified to be washed free of clinging particles. It is swept into the paver joints and openings, and the pavers are vibrated to level. The joints must not be left unfilled. One of the purposes of the aggregate is to trap sediment and debris near the pavement surface, where it can be removed by vacuuming.

The key process for maintaining a permeable pavement is vacuuming. Sediment accumulates mostly in the uppermost 1 in. of joint aggregate, where it is accessible by vacuum suction. Vacuuming lifts sediment out and restores the pores to their original open condition.
