    I have a customer who is determined to find a clay paver that he had installed at his old house. I have not been able to find the exact match. Any help would be apreciated.

    if not done so already, visit *brick* suppliers, don't even bother with hardscape suppliers.

    Also, I get this same thing a few times a year, people wanna match 57 year old brick on their house. It would take me 5 hrs just to go to all the brick yards and try to find a match. If we're still in the pricing stages and the job is not officially our's, I'm not gonna devote 5 hrs to trying to find a freakin match just so I can give them a price.


    This is what I tell the propsective client:

    "You find a supplier with a clay paver that you feel is the closest match, and I'll be happy to quote you an exact price, but in the meantime I'm going to give you a *Preliminary* estimate and we'll adjust the cost once we know what paver you want to use".
