Our Advice

bar

We have installed a large variety of the currently available brick paving products in Perth. Only a few of which have we found to be consistently of a high quality. Most of the 'lesser' products are priced in the same range as the better ones and it's difficult for customers to recognise inferior products when faced with so many choices, glossy brochures and sales talk. It is also a good idea to discuss your choice of materials/products with your chosen tradesman before committing to a purchase. We hope this helps.bar

 

 

Clay Paving Bricks (esp. Driveways and Paths)
Midland Brick/Boral and Austral Brick are the only manufacturers of what we consider to be high quality clay paving bricks.

Cement Paving Bricks(esp. Driveways and Paths)
BGC Blokpave are excellent cement paving bricks. Atlas also sell a high quality cement brick. Midland Brick/Bora have now also moved into this market sector and produce a comparable product. The lesser brands are often sold marginally cheaper than those mentioned above but are usually weak or brittle, out of shape, mark much more easily and the end result simply doesn't look as good.

Large Reconstituted Limestone Pavers (Pool Surrounds and stylish outdoor areas) We can recommend Fremantle Stone, Castlestone and Stylestone.

Bullnose Pavers (esp. Pool capping, steps and wall capping)
Urban Stone, Fremantle Stone, Castlestone and Archistone are all high quality.

Other Resources:

 

Limestone Blocks (esp. Free standing and retaining walls)
Archistone and BGC limestone blocks are uniformly sized and have a nice finish. Many cheaper brands are seriously out of shape and badly chipped but may be acceptable if you require 'rustic appeal' ;)

Capping/Pier Capping Stones (esp. Limestone walls)
Again we can recommend Urban Stone, Castlestone and Archistone. Colonial Sandstone also offer an interesting sandstone alternative.

About 'Seconds'
Manufacturers sell sub standard bricks as seconds usually because they are chipped, discoloured or inconsistent sizes(or all three). Inconsistently sized bricks make it extremely hard for the paving contractor to achieve a professional standard of finish. When using 'seconds' the quality and appearance of the finished work may be compromised.

Please see the efflorescence, salt attack and sand jacking pages at UrbanStone for a thorough coverage of these topics.
