Block Paving is a popular and stylish way to finish a driveway or pavement, and one that we have a lot of experience installing for our customers – but what exactly are the benefits of block paving? Why should you get block paving for your driveway? Understandably, they can seem like a big investment, but their pros far outweight their cons. Thinking of them as an investment, however, is not far off the mark; block paving is the kind of long-lasting, value-injecting addition to a home that definitely qualifies as an “investment”. With that in mind, let’s have a look at the advantages of solid block paving.
First off, they last a very, very long time. Sturdily built, well-founded and carefully laid, our block paving will still be strong and functional decades from now, and will provide real long-lasting value to your home. Better yet, when you install block paving, you’ll know that you won’t need to replace it any time soon, and time-consuming, expensive maintenance work is a thing of the past. The blocks are individually extremely hardy, and as part of the pattern, they are a strong structure that can take anything thrown at it by the elements or human wear and tear.
Second, paving a driveway, patio or other outdoor surface adds value to the property in a real, tangible way. Ultimately, you’ll be investing in the future value of the property, and the paving’s long-lasting strength will keep it in great shape even if you don’t plan to sell for years. It’s an extremely versatile and good-looking way to augment a property, and there are few houses or areas that wouldn’t suit it – the sheer variety of block styles available and the control you’ll have over the design ensures that there’ll be a pattern to fit any property.
It also doesn’t take long for our experts to install block paving, with our skilled teams able to get in, prepare the area and lay all the stones quickly and effectively, turning this normally huge job into a few days of disruption at most. Once the plans are finalised and you’ve given the go-ahead, they’ll pick a date to begin work and give you a completion date, before getting to work. Our installers pride themselves on speed and quality of service, so you can be sure that you won’t be kept waiting once work begins.
The design of the paving itself is entirely up to you, with hundreds of shapes, cuts, colours and textures to suit both traditional, rustic surroundings and modern, contemporary exteriors, and the ability to create an almost limitless variety of designs ensuring that your paving will be unlike anyone else’s. You will also be able to consult with our teams to ensure that you get exactly the finish you were looking for, and are left with a block pattern that you’ll love.
Once in place, the paving is extremely durable and will last a lifetime through a variety of harsh conditions, and you’ll have the ability to quickly and easily replace any individually damaged blocks in the pattern for little cost.
