Paving bricks are the type that is manufactured to be placed flat on the ground. They are different from the type made to be used vertically for chimneys, walls and other construction projects.
They can withstand both hot and cold temperatures, rain and snow and foot traffic.
But these can be an aesthetic difference, as well. Bricks used in chimneys, for instance, are not as exposed to the scrutiny of the human eye as are those used in walkways and patios.
For this reason, colour and other visual factors come into play when selecting paving bricks. Moreover, they are frequently greater in size.
Stone pavers are stones that are used to create a flat, easily accessible surface for driveways, patios, walkways and pool decks. Unlike concrete pavers and most brick pavers, stone pavers do not forever come in the same sizes.
Because the stones are cut from victims and not made from moulds like other pavers, there is a little more variety in size, texture and colour. These changes often add to the value of stone pavers.
