The benefits of block paving are far reaching. Not only is block paving a fantastic solution for off-street parking, it also offers a low maintenance space which can be easily tailored to your tastes and requirements.
Block paving is longstanding and it adds value to a home whether that is by creating off-street parking or providing a patio area where you can enjoy dining al fresco. We can also install block paving in a way which helps water to soak away to drains or permeable areas such as soil and lawn.
There are two basic types of block paving which are the kiln-fired clay brick and the moulded concrete block. There is almost a never ending variety of bricks and blocks, especially with the moulded concrete block.
Moulded concrete blocks come in a range of sizes, shapes, colours, textures and more. Manufacturers often design and create their own style of blocks too. From contemporary designs to those which appeal to a more traditional taste, you will find a moulded concrete block to suit your palette.
Colours vary from red brick to greys and charcoals, brown to greens and whites and creams to greys, yellows and blues. There really is a vast array. With the brick paving, generally the rectangular shaped bricks are used but there are a growing number of different shapes and sizes being introduced to the market. However clay bricks have natural colouring and so offer a much wider choice of colours, and colours which are not subject to fade like their moulded concrete block counterparts.
Natural stone can also be used. While this tends to be a more expensive material, the visual effect it offers is stunning and well worth the investment. Natural stone includes yorkstone, limestone, granite and more. The main patterns which are used in laying block paving are the two different herringbones (the 90 herringbone and the 45 herringbone), the stretched bond and the basketweave.
However, circular designs, features, square designs and many others can be used within the main pattern you choose. Whatever your needs, we can help. Our professional team is only too happy to assist you in each stage of your home’s block paving.
