Block Paving in Liverpool

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 many block paving materials and options available to you. The bricks found in block paving are mostly manufactured from clay, but some are made up of different composite materials. One of the main benefits to block paving is that if a few of the bricks get damaged over time, they can simply be replaced. In addition, it means that it is simpler to carry out work under the top of paving without leaving a mark. The most frequent pattern that driveway companies lay is the herringbone pattern since it has the strongest interlock, rendering 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 a stylish and appealing look for your driveway that can make your home look fantastic to buyers.

how much to block pave a drive?

One thing you should know about block paving a drive is that it can be very expensive depending on a number of factors such as the materials to be incorporated, block paving pattern, labour cost as well as the size of the drive in question.

can you lay block paving on top of concrete?

Can You Lay Block Paving On Top Of Concrete?

The replacement or improvement of your driveway is unarguably one of the most expensive projects you can undertake in the exterior of your home. When done by a true professional the results can be impressive and visually appealing, however you’d have to pay huge bucks to have this done. This is exactly the situation with block paving as it is not only time consuming, but also a lot more expensive when compared to other types of driveway.

A large chuck of this cost is associated with the removal of the existing driveway. So assuming your old driveway is concrete, can you simply pave over the existing concrete? If yes, will it save you money? The simple and short answer is yes. It’s in fact advisable to pave over concrete as this will not only add around 20% to your home’s value, but also make it look a lot more attractive and pleasing to the eye.

However, there are some problems associated with block paving over concrete. It may be better to remove the concrete in situations whereby the base is substandard. For instance, if the ground underneath the concrete is failing, there’ll most definitely be problems.

Also, there’ll be some issues with settling (not even the cracks). If your concrete is dropping little amounts every year, these can affect the blocks and ultimately lead to dropping of some sections of the block paving in such a way that they’ll no longer be on the same level as the other blocks. Giving a rise to the possibility of drainage issues, tripping hazard and lots more.

Other issues that may crop up can be triggered as a result of using the wrong size block height as well as totally ignoring or overlooking the undulations of the concrete.
