Concrete Block Paving for Driveways
Concrete block paving first became popular in the late 1970s and early 1980s when choice was very limited on styles and colours. However, the market for block paving has expanded immensely, as has the manufacturing industry, which has now resulted in there being a wide range of products. Styles include traditional and contemporary designs, with a wide range of colour, texture and material choices, including concrete and natural stone.
Concrete block paving offers a long-lasting and attractive finish to complement your home. The wide range of styles, colours and textures mean there are options to suit everyone. Concrete block paving is also extremely durable and will last many years with the correct maintenance. Should you need to uplift any areas due to movement, or for access to services, this is easy as areas can be reinstated with minimal fuss. Concrete block paving also comes as a permeable option that requires no additional drainage. This complies with planning regulations relating to surfacing of front gardens.
The downside to concrete block paving can be issues around installation and not using the correct sub base. Where areas appear to sink or movement occurs, it can be down to what the product has been laid on. The common mistake is to think that the product has failed rather than the sub base.
