Why Block Paving?

1 Low maintenance

One of the best advantages of installing block paving is that it is incredibly low maintenance. Due to the nature of the material it does not require top polishing and will never need repainting in the future. 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 to create driveway designs, including intricate patterns and shapes which can be formed out of the different 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 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. In fact, it is able to withstand so much pressure that it is commonly used in airports and docks – a testament to its capabilities. Additionally, it is unaffected by frosts, salts, oils and most chemicals, making it a popular choice in heavy industrial sites.
