Why Block Paving Driveways, Paths and Patios Are Best

This couldn’t be further from the truth, and the reality is that block paved patios and driveways are one of the most durable types of surface, demand little maintenance and are incredibly hard wearing. Block paved patios and driveways don’t wear down over time and in contrast to materials like concrete and tarmac are not prone to cracks.
You’ll also find that it doesn’t get extremely hot during summer, so it’s ideal if you park your car on the driveway instead of in the garage. Block paving is easily installed when you contact experienced professionals and offer a number of benefits over other kinds of patio and driveway surfacing materials. When it comes to the design of block paving in Bradford the sky is the limit, there are endless options to choose from.
Block paving is ideal for pathways. You won’t be able to create circular designs or swirls, but you will be able to add whatever colours you want. Block paving is very low maintenance, but now and again you might find that weeds or moss grows in-between your bricks. This can be handled in a matter of minutes but the blocks themselves won’t fade in colour over time. With paving stone pathways, you increase the chances of weeds and you also run the risk of them breaking if too much pressure is applied. Block paving is much more durable and hard wearing, whilst the smaller stones offer a much improved sub structure. Because each block is so small you can really design a pathway however you like, curved pathways for example are quite popular so you could have a block paved path running through your garden or even from your front door to your driveway.
Block paving is a superb choice for your driveway. The stones themselves are ideal for winter use as they have plenty of grip. You won’t need to worry about the floor getting slippery as much and you won’t need to worry about the weight of your vehicle cracking the stones. Some people think paving slabs is a good option for a driveway, but this is never recommended, flags can and do crack much easier than block paving and flagging doesn’t stand up to weight very well and can lift. Block paving however doesn’t present you with this problem and you will also find that it can support large vehicles as well. Design options are endless with intricate design options available and a wide range of different colours.
For patios block paving is perhaps the best option available. Whilst many people opt for wooden decking for their outdoor patio decks certainly have a lot of problems. Wood has a tendency to rot over time and is prone to mites and other forms of infestation, regular maintenance is necessary when you install a wooden deck in your garden. Aside from a little moss growing between the bricks over time block paved patios are virtually maintenance free and will last much longer than a wood deck. Block paving is a fantastic choice for those who want a low maintenance solution for their outdoor flooring.
