What Are the Properties of Block Paving?

British homeowners are all in agreement that block paving makes for the perfect driveway, and you only have to drive around a few housing estates to appreciate the popularity that block paved driveways are enjoying. When it comes to resurfacing a tarmac driveway, many homeowners opt for block paving as an alternative, and with an affordable local block paving company in Leeds who can help you create a stunning design, your new driveway will be a major feature of the property.

  1. High Pressure Compression – The blocks are made by applying very high pressure, which creates a material that is dense and can withstand heavy weight. If you are the proud owner of a motorhome or caravan, you can rest assured that the driveway will not move under heavy loads, and with a concrete base, the driveway can withstand anything a domestic environment might offer.
  2. Semi-Permeable – Block paving is semi-permeable, which allows for natural drainage, meaning no puddles, and in some cases, a drainage system would be installed prior to building the concrete base, depending on the water base.
  3. Attractive Colours – Shades or red, green and yellow offer contrasts, and by using several colours, symmetrical designs can be created. Block paving has the potential to transform the front of your property, indeed, some homeowners who are trying to sell, will have a block paving driveway installed.

Add to the above, the non-slip surface and the ease of cleaning and you have the very best driveway material, and one that will stand the test of time.
