When installing pavers you must consider what type of pavers works for you. There are many types to choose from. One type would be clay. Clay pavers are vary durable and attractive. But the main draw, is that clay pavers have the color run completely through the product. Many of the pavers today only hold the color on the vary top. With that said, a premium clay paver can hold a more true color over the course of time. But if sealers are applied, this will keep any clay or non-clay paver looking great. Here is a example of a clay paver that we used on a porch.

Tuckpointing is a great way to repair damage to a masonry surface. The largest problem with Tuckpointing is getting it done right. One way is that after grinding the joints, it must be washed out. If not , dust from the grinding will keep the new masonry from adhearing.
