Block paving, often referred to as brick paving, is a popular kind of decorative hard standing that is typically used on driveways and in gardens to add to their aesthetic value. It has a generally simplistic and classic appearance, adding some subtle class to proceedings without being over the top. It doesn’t just look great, there are many reasons why people continue to choose it over other alternative methods.
The Benefits of Block Paving
1) It has a non-slip surface
Block paving has a nonslip surface, making it extremely safe for all purposes. This is particularly beneficial when using it on a drive, as it is not only safe for people walking on it but also greatly reduces the risk of cars skidding. Families also find this useful in gardens, as it reassures them that their children are less likely to fall and harm themselves when they are playing outdoors.
2) It is multifunctional
While some paving solutions are limited in their usages, because of its high endurance, strength and the array of finishing options, designs and sizes, block paving can be used for almost anything and is very easy to adapt.
3) You can order the exact amount you need
With block paving, you can measure the area that requires coverage and order the exact amount you need, meaning you will potentially save money by not ending up with too much that cannot be used as well as reducing waste which is difficult to dispose of.
4) It is low maintenance
Once it has been installed, there is very little work required in maintaining the block paving and extending its already lengthy life span. All it really needs to prevent showing signs of wear and keep it looking fresh, is a thorough clean once or twice a year.
5) It can endure anything
Because it has such high endurance, block paving is not used only on drives and for home solutions but is also a common choice for commercial and industrial uses, with airports and docks being amongst its customers.
6) It looks good
Appearance is important, especially when it comes to selling property, and block paving certainly looks great. It is also customisable, with the opportunity to choose particular patterns and colour schemes.
