Brick pavers come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Colors are divided into 2 categories: White cement (normally light colors) and dark cement (normally darker colors). Pavers are available in single colors up to a combination of 3-4 colors. It is important to realize that color combinations vary and it is recommended to purchase pavers from the same lot. Pavers are produced in 2 main thicknesses; 1” are primarily installed over concrete with a sand bed or thin set. These work well when there are clearance issues like steps and doors. 25/8” pavers are standard for installing over excavated ground and provide the strength and durability for most any application. Brick pavers are the most common, durable and least expensive product available.
