Terracotta Pavers

Designed for paving without a concrete substrate

Our Terracotta Pavers are designed to be installed atop compacted earth, road base (aggregate), and sand, without the need for a concrete substrate.  They are the ideal outdoor paving alternative when concrete substrate, with Quarry Tile installation, is a less practical option.  Landscaping applications include lawn stepping-stones, pathways & steps, and mondo-grass grids.

Our Pavers offer the solid or flashed color choices above but also allow a choice of surface texture between a Standard (flat) and Stone (undulating).

Pavers are double sided in that both sides are usable as a paving surface.  Each side may have a different surface texture. In the case of Elba, Vivara, Montecristo and Corfu, one or both sides may be flashed colors.

IMPORTANT INSTALLATION POINTS
The following points must be observed to achieve the best aesthetic and technical floor or paving result:
1.  During installation take tiles randomly from two or three packs.
2.  Follow the recommended grout gaps shown on the label of the tile pack.
3.  When installing square tiles ensure that underside fixing ribs are running in the same direction whenever possible.
4. 
Flexible 10 mm expansion joints should be installed along restrained perimeters of the installed area, around rigid interruptions, above substrate construction joints, and every 4 to 5 meters across any continuous expanse of floor or paving; or follow local standards when available.
