As I had previously blogged, Unilock has been manufacturing the 'Trevia' paving stone for the U.S market. For whatever reason they did not introduce this paver here in Ontario. Although, these decisions are usually based on production capacity and market conditions. Unilock is introducing Trevia, this year in Ontario. Trevia will be made in the Pickering plant. This production facility is currently being modified to produce Trevia and Thornbury. Production should be up and running for Spring 2012.  Although this is not necessarily a completely new product from Unilock, there are other manufacturers that make this style of stone. What sets this apart from the others is that it will be Endura color (enhanced colour process). It will be a fun stone to install, that's for sure. As I had previously blogged I thought that they colours would be similar to Avante Ashlar. Well, was I right? How about 50% right. This paver shares 2 colours of Avante Ashlar's 4. They added one colour to Avante this year

 Trevia was nicely displayed at Unilock's Canada Blooms 2012 booth. With two sizes and 4 patterns per size, a total of 8 patterns there shouldn't be too much repetition in pattern. The only problem I have with this type of stone from other manufacturers in the past is, depending on your layout the waste can be quite high. In the pattern book it looks like some stones can be re-used on the opposite edge thus reducing some of the waste. I was a little sceptical of this last year when they said this about Avante Ashlar. After using Avante Ashlar you can reduce waste quite a bit by re-using cut stones on the opposite side, so let's hope that stays true for Trevia, because in the opinion of this contractor, the customer doesn't want to pay for waste. It my job as the installer to use the materials as efficiently as possible as to reduce waste. I look forward to installing this paver. Here's my article about Endura Color and what it means.

Materials:

Unilock 'Trevia', Almond Grove.
