Block Paving in Blackpool

Why Block Paving Driveways, Paths and Patios Are Best

If you want to update the aesthetic appearance of your property but you’re not quite sure exactly what materials you want to use, then you should certainly consider block paving. Block paving in Blackpool can come in many different colours, so you can develop your own designs with ease. Many people are against block paving because they feel as though it doesn’t give them much in the way of creative choice, and that it can be a little hard to maintain. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and in reality, it is one of the better solutions if you want a hard-wearing driveway, path or patio without the excessive maintenance.

Block paving in Blackpool won’t wear down over time and it isn’t prone to cracks like tarmac. You will also find that it doesn’t get extremely hot throughout 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 plethora of benefits gained by using this sort of surface. You can have complete flexibility over your own design and almost anything is possible, whether you want a circular design with lots of colour or a criss-cross design that utilise the same colour and one, there are almost endless options to choose from.

Pathways

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. Maintenance for block paving is low but you will find over time that weeds and moss grows between the cracks of the bricks. This can be sorted out in a matter of seconds, and the blocks themselves won’t fade or reduce in colour over time. With 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 much more durable and hard wearing, whilst the smaller sized stones offer a much improved sub structure. Because each block is so small you can really design a pathway any way you like, curved pathways for example are very popular so you could have a block paved path running through your garden or even from your front door to your driveway.

Driveways

Block paving is a great choice for your driveway. The stones themselves have plenty of grip and this is ideal for when it comes to winter. They don’t get slippery when wet and you’ll not need to worry about vehicle weight cracking 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 scenarios they might even lift up so they will need replacing if this ever happens. 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.

Patios

For patios, block paving is perhaps the best choice 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 susceptible to mites and other types of infestation, regular maintenance is necessary when you install a wooden deck in your garden. With block paved patios in Blackpool, the only maintenance required is the little moss which may grow between the cracks, other than this a block paved patio is virtually maintenance free. Block paving is a great choice for those who want a low maintenance solution for their outdoor flooring.
