Clay Paver Colors

Whitacre Greer’s clay paver colors include a wide palette of reds, tans and buffs.  All are colorfast and will not fade with use or exposure to ultraviolet light.  Like traditional building brick, the firing process yields a thermo physical change in the raw material resulting in a brick paver that is durable and beautiful.

Paver colors available in standard color range are achieved by careful blending of shale, fire clay and other additives.  Products of all straight shade colors may be custom mingled at the plant according to the design professional’s specification.  This results in the easy availability of the ‘perfect’ color blend to complement your next paving project.  It also safes time and expense easing demands on the installer to blend material on the job site.

Colors within a given shipment of Whitacre Greer pavers will vary slightly due to subtle changes in clay composition and kiln firing temperatures. Such color variations should not be considered a defect, but a natural desirable feature that gives the pavers greater character and depth.
