Block Paving in Edinburgh

Block paving can look good as a driveway. It is a stylish and functional answer to your driveway and can give your home great kerb appeal. Whether you want a classic herringbone design or something a little different, there are plenty of block paving materials and options available to you. The bricks used in block paving are most commonly made of clay, but some are made of different composite materials. One of the main advantages to block paving is that if a few of the bricks get damaged over time, they can be replaced easily. In addition, it means that it is easier to carry out work under the surface of the paving without leaving a mark. The most frequent pattern that driveway companies lay is the herringbone pattern because it has the strongest interlock, rendering it a fantastic choice for driveways. The herringbone pattern is created by the tradesperson by setting the blocks at 45 degrees or 90 degrees to the perpendicular. Both types of herringbone design create a stylish and interesting look for your driveway that will make your home look fantastic to potential buyers.

FAQs

Do I need to be at home when my driveway is being worked on?

Your contractor should have access to your driveway and a power source. If they have these things, you don’t need to be there while they’re working on your driveway. However, it’s worth being around if you can so you can clarify details and answer any questions.

When's the best time to get driveway work done?

Driveway work is usually done in the warmer half of the year. This is partly to avoid bad weather. If you want to get ahead and avoid waiting for a contractor to be free, you should try getting in touch with a professional in the early spring so a date can be booked for install as soon as practically possible.

• Install The Block Pavers

Start from the centremost position of the pathway and work towards the sides until you’re able to cover every inch of the area.
