Block Paving is extremely popular and can be used for driveways, paths & patios.
1. Low maintenance
One of the best advantages of installing block paving is that it is incredibly low maintenance. In fact, just regularly washing your driveway or patio with simple soap and water will do the trick and help keep it looking fresh and bright for years to come. Additionally, block paving can easily withstand harsh, erratic weathers, making it an ideal material for the fluctuating British weather.
2. Highly versatile
Block paving is offered in an impressive range of colours and styles, meaning the options for your driveway or patio are almost endless. It is also a great material, as it is manufactured and thus uniformed, to create driveway designs, including intricate patterns and shapes which can be formed out of the different blocks. Edgings can also be made to contrast with the main blocks.
3. Enhance the visual appeal of your home
Due to the wide selection of styles block paving can offer, it is sure to instantly enhance the visual appeal of your home. Whether you want a simple, traditional paving design or something a lot more complex and striking, block paving is a fantastic material to achieve a great look. You can be certain it will be able to provide something that will complement your home and accurately reflect your needs, tastes and budget.
4. More environmentally friendly
In comparison to other surfacing options, block paving is particularly environmentally friendly. This is due to its porous nature, which means block paving provides an area for water to rest during rainy seasons. You will not notice surface water on your paving, as it will be drawn in by the material. However, it will prevent the water from gathering or flooding, allowing you to create better drainage on your driveway or patio.
5. Durable and hard-wearing
Block paving is very extremely durable and is expected to last reliably for at least 20 years. It is a great material for a driveway or patio as it is incredibly hard-wearing and, as such, can easily cope with lots of motor and pedestrian traffic.
Although block paving requires very little maintenance, it will over time, collect dirt, debris, weed and perhaps moss growth or even oil stains. We do provide a cleaning service, we treat the weed growth and thoroughly clean the paving to bring it back to its original state. There is also a sealing service, whereby after cleaning the driveway can then be sealed which will enhance the drive and help protect from weed growth for longer.
Should any of the blocks get damaged, they can be removed and replaced without having to lift the whole driveway.
