Why Block Paving Driveways, Paths and Patios Are Best
If you’re considering a new driveway or patio for your house or commercial premises, block paving in Cardiff is a material you should certainly consider. Block paving comes in many different colours, so you can develop your own designs easily. Many people don’t consider block paving for their driveway or patio because they believe their choices are limited when it comes to creativity and design. This couldn’t be further from the truth – the reality is that block paved patios and driveways are among the most durable surfaces, require minimal maintenance and are incredibly hard wearing. Block paved patios and driveways don’t wear down with time and, in contrast to materials like concrete and tarmac, they aren’t prone to cracks. You’ll also find that it doesn’t get too hot over the course of summer, so it’s ideal if you park your vehicle on the driveway instead of in the garage. When installed by skilled contractors, block paved driveways and patios are very easy to install and there are multiple benefits provided by this type of surface. When it comes to the design of block paving in Cardiff the sky is the limit – there are endless options to choose from.

Block paving is an excellent surface material for pathways. Whilst for pathways you generally won’t be able to add circular designs or swirls, you do have endless colour options from which to choose. Maintenance for block paving is low, but you may find over time that weeds and moss grows between the cracks of the bricks. This can be remedied in a matter of seconds, and the blocks themselves won’t fade with time. With traditional 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 paved pathways are much more durable and hard wearing in comparison, and the smaller sized stone offers a far better support structure. As each block is so small, you can really design a pathway any way you like – curved pathways as an example are quite popular, so you could have a block paved path running through your garden or even from your front door to your driveway.
Block paved driveways remain one of the most popular choices for homeowners installing a new driveway. The stones themselves have ample 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 breaking the stones. Some people think paving slabs is a good option for a driveway, but this is rarely recommended – flags can and do crack much easier than block paving and flagging doesn’t stand up to weight very well. Block paving however doesn’t present you with this concern 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.
For patios, block paving is probably the best choice available. Many people believe that wood decking is the better option when it comes to outside flooring but it unquestionably has several problems. Wood is likely to rot over time and is susceptible to mites and other forms of infestation, therefore regular maintenance is needed when you install a wooden deck in your garden. With block paved patios in Cardiff, 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 superb choice for those who want a low maintenance solution for their outdoor flooring.
