Many people are against block paving since they feel as though it doesn’t provide many options when it comes to creativity and that it can be a little tricky to maintain. This couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, it’s among the best solutions if you want a hard-wearing driveway, path or patio without the excessive maintenance. Block paved patios and driveways don’t wear down over time and, in contrast to materials like concrete and tarmac, they aren’t prone to cracks. You’ll also find that it doesn’t heat up much throughout the warm summer months, so the material is ideal to use if you park your vehicle on the driveway instead of in the garage. A block paving driveway is also actually very easy to install when you hire a reliable professional. You can have total flexibility over your own design and just about anything is possible – there are countless options to choose from.
Block paving is an ideal surface material for pathways. Whilst for pathways you generally wont be able to add circular designs or swirls, you do have endless colour options from which to choose. Block paving is very low maintenance, but now and again you will probably find that weeds or moss grows in-between your bricks. This can be sorted out in a matter of seconds, and the blocks themselves won’t fade or diminish in colour as time passes. By contrast, with traditional paving stone pathways you increase the chances of weeds and you also run the risk of them breaking if an excessive amount of pressure is applied. Block paving is very hard wearing and the smaller sized stones offer an exceptional support structure. Because block paving sections are so small, you can create curved pathway designs with no difficulty so you can have them going through your garden, at the front of your home or you could even have them to connect your driveway to your home.
Block paving is a superb choice for your driveway. The stones themselves have a lot of grip, meaning they’re ideal in winter as well as summer. You won’t need to be concerned 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 about having paving stones in their driveway, but this isn’t considered to be a practical option. The stones can crack with ease if the right pressure is applied, and in some cases they might even lift up – in which event they will need replacing. Block paving, however, doesn’t present you with this issue and you will also find that it can support large vehicles as well. Design options are endless, with intricate design options available in a wide range of different colours.
If you want to install block paving on your patio ,then you should definitely take a look at the advantages that it has to offer. Many people believe that wood decking is the better option when it comes to outside flooring but it unquestionably has many problems. Wood can rot with time, and it can be susceptible to mites and other insect infestations. With block paving in Kent, you won’t experience any of this and the only thing you have to worry about is a little bit of moss growing in-between your stones. Block paving is a superb choice for those who want a low maintenance solution for their outdoor flooring.
