Block paving comes in many different colours so creating something distinctive and eye catching can be done with ease. A lot of people we speak to don’t consider block paving because they’re under the impression that they are limited with what can be done in a design. This couldn’t be further from the truth, in reality block paving for driveways and patios is still one of the best options available to homeowners, block paving in Manchester is hard wearing and will involve very little maintenance.

Block paving won’t wear down over time and it isn’t prone to cracks like tarmac. You will also find that it doesn’t get seriously hot during summer, so it’s ideal if you park your vehicle on the driveway instead of in the garage. When installed by professional contractors block paved driveways and patios are very easy to install and there are ample benefits available with this type of surface. When it comes to designing a block paved patio or driveway in Manchester the choices are endless, the sky is really the limit.

Block Paving For Pathways in Manchester

For pathways block paving is an excellent material choice. Circular designs and swirl designs will normally be limited for pathways but colour option is vast and you can create something truly distinctive. Whilst maintenance for block paved pathways is low you’ll find over time that moss and weeds grows between the bricks. This can be dealt with in a matter of seconds, the bricks themselves require no maintenance at all, they don’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 a lot of pressure is applied. Block paving is more durable and hard wearing, whilst the smaller stones offer a much improved sub 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 For Driveways in Manchester

Block paving is a fantastic choice for your driveway. The stones themselves are ideal for winter use as they have plenty of grip. They don’t get slippery when wet and you’ll not need to worry about vehicle weight breaking the stones. Some people think about having paving stones in their driveway but this isn’t a practical choice. The stones can crack with ease if the right pressure is applied and in some situations they might even lift up so they will need replacing if this ever happens. Block paved driveways don’t present such problems and can readily withstand pressure from even the heaviest of vehicles. A block paved driveway can be laid in a multitide of different colours and designs, the sky is the limit when it comes to the design.

Block Paving For Patios in Manchester

If you want to install block paving on your patio then you should certainly take a look at the advantages that it has to offer. Many people opt for wooden decking for their outdoor patio areas but decking has a number of drawbacks when compared to block paving. Regular maintenance will be needed with wood being prone to mites and some other infestations, and with or without regular maintenance you’ll see that decking rots over time. 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.
