Can anyone tell me if there is a way to know, by looking, if pavers are made of clay or concrete?
both... concrete pavers and "brick" pavers which are clay
Yes. They have different texture and consistency and it's pretty easy to tell in most cases. I can tell better by feeling them rather than merely looking though.
ok. Can you describe the different textures?
Here is a link that will answer some questions for you:
It probably will make you aware of other questions that you may not have thought about as well.
Concrete requires either sand or gravel. You can see the sand or gravel in the paver. If they've been finished smooth, you can break one to see.
Also, if you cut one in half with a masonary blade, the cut surface will be very smooth in a brick (clay) paver.
Thank you adrian. That was very helpful and concise. Broke one today, and could see lots of tiny piece of gravel. Now, I know I can seal them. Thanks
