Block Paving in Leeds

Block paving can look good as a driveway. It really is an elegant and functional solution to your driveway and can give your home great kerb appeal. Whether you want a classic herringbone design or something a bit different, there are plenty of block paving materials and possibilities available to you. The bricks used in block paving are made of clay commonly, but some are made up of different composite materials. Among the main advantages to block paving is that if some of the bricks get damaged over time, they can simply be replaced. In addition, it means that it's easier to perform work under the surface of the paving without leaving a mark. The most common pattern that driveway companies lay is the herringbone pattern because it has the strongest interlock, which makes it a fantastic choice for driveways. The tradesperson creates the herringbone design by placing the blocks at 45 degrees or 90 degrees to the perpendicular. Both types of herringbone pattern create an elegant and appealing look for your driveway that can make your home look fantastic to potential buyers.

how much is block paving?

So have you decided to lay block paving on your property? If yes, then knowing how much it would cost would help you prepare a budget and set out a plan before commencement of the project.

And depending on the complexity of the design, the final cost of the project can be greatly impacted as it would also take a longer period of time to be completed. For the same small to medium sized pathway featuring a simple design which usually takes up to 3 to 4 days will cost within a range of £4,500 to £5,500.

They play a key role in the block paving cost.
