Block Paving in Wirral

Block paving can look good as a driveway. It 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 options and materials accessible to you.

The bricks found in block paving are manufactured from clay commonly, but some are made of different composite materials. Among the main advantages to block paving is that if a few of the bricks get damaged over time, they can be replaced easily. It also means that it is easier to carry out work under the surface of the paving without leaving a mark.

The most common pattern that driveway companies lay is the herringbone pattern since it has the strongest interlock, which makes it a fantastic choice for driveways. The herringbone pattern is established by the tradesperson by setting the blocks at 45 degrees or 90 degrees to the perpendicular. Both types of herringbone pattern create a stylish and interesting look for your driveway that can make your home look fantastic to buyers.

    how to seal block paving

    Are you having weed problems on your carefully picked out block pavings? After spending huge bucks to install the block pavings, the last thing any homeowner would want to discover is weed taking over the prized asset. Fortunately, this is a problem that can be effectively handled in a few simple steps provided in this article.

    Basically, sealing of block paving is all about prevention of weed growth in the area by total weed removal, putting of sand between the block paving joints and sealing with a good quality sealant. This is a task that’s best left for a reliable professional to guarantee the best results especially if you lack proper training and experience. This guide will give a good insight into the process.

    Here are the equipment you’ll need to get started: pressure washer, weed killer, bin bag, broom, small brush, protective gear, sealing roller, spueegee, jointing sand and sealer and DIY sprayer.

    • Get a weed disposal bag to clean while you go.

    • Leave the washed area to dry.

    l Sand The Joints

    • Check the weather forecast to ensure there’s about 24 to 48 hours of dryness as its important for both sand and sealant to do a perfect job.

    • Put sand between the gaps and push it down with your small brush until its levelled.

    lSeal The Gaps

    • The sealing process should be done immediately and sanding.

    • Clean up the patio

    • Perform a test using a small area

    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. The cost of block paving depends on a wide range of factors such as the the size of the area in question, cost of labour as well as the type of brick and block paving to be used. So how much does block paving cost? In this article, we’ll give you an general idea of the cost of laying of block paving on a driveway so you can estimate your cost according to your personal requirements and needs.

    For a small to medium sized driveway featuring a complex design, the block pavings’ cost starts from a range between £3,000 to £4,000, meanwhile that of a large sized pathway will jump to a range between £6,500 to £7,500. 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. While a complex design such as a herringbone pattern will take up to 5 to 6 days and costing within a range of £5,000 to £6,000.

    Furthermore, there are also other factors that can determine the price of block paving and another example is the current condition. This includes the preparation work to be carried out before laying the block paving can be a time consuming task especially when the driveway is in a terrible condition and this comes with a high labour cost. Another factor to be considered is the materials used in making the block paving such as stone, concrete, cement, composite and resin - they’re all available in various range of colours and textures. They play a key role in the block paving cost.
