FAQs

What colours and patterns are available for paving?

Paving comes in a wide range of colours and patterns. Consider using a contrasting colour for the edges of your patio or driveway for a tidy effect. A paving specialist can advise you on different combinations possible, alternatively, have a look online at what products, shapes and colours are produced.

How to lay pattern imprinted concrete
Laying pattern imprinted concrete is not an easy task. There’s a reason why nearly 50% of the costs are for labour – because it’s a specialist job that requires skill. We’ll go through the process of how to lay pattern imprinted concrete here, but we would always recommend that you call a professional to do it for you.
  1. Prepare the sub-baseThe driveway company will excavate, or dig, the existing surface down to a depth of around 200mm. They will remove any debris from the area may place it in a skip or arrange for it to be removed in another way. When they dig down to the sub-base of your previous driveway, they will assess how much hardcore they need and arrange for that to be delivered to the site. They will then spread the hardcore across the sub-base to create a level surface to pour the concrete on. Most good contractors will apply a gel to any walls and doors to protect them from concrete splashes. They will also add any gulley tops, manhole covers or shuttering that’s required.
  2. Installation and imprintingNext, the tradespeople will have the concrete either poured from a large mixer vehicle or barrow it in from a mixer and pour onto the surface. They level it with rakes, then add a colour surface hardener in a colour of your choice. This will give the driveway its permanent colour. They will then wait until the concrete has hardened to the correct consistency for imprinting the pattern, then will use special tools and stencils to make the pattern that you asked for. They will then spread a colour powder called a release agent over the surface, and leave to dry for 1 to 2 days depending on the weather conditions.
  3. CleaningWhen the contractors return, they will add crack control cuts into the concrete. This is important because concrete expands and contracts in the heat, so there needs to be some give to stop any larger cracks from forming. Then everything is power washed clean, and a chemical wash is also used on the concrete to ensure it’s completely dust-free. The installers will ensure all your walls and doors are clean, which will hopefully be an easy job if they used wall gel.
  4. SealingThe final step is to seal the driveway. There needs to have been at least two dry days before the tradespeople can do it, so you might find it’s best to have your pattern imprinted driveway installed in the summer. The contractors will blow any debris away from the surface and dry any damp areas where necessary. They will then add an anti-slip agent to the sealant and brush it on. It’s best to not walk or drive onto your new concrete driveway for about 4 days after sealing to allow everything to set. But after that, you’re ready to use your new driveway!
Are patterned concrete driveways durable?
Yes, patterned concrete driveways are very durable. Concrete, once set, is extremely strong and will take the weight of your car or cars easily. Most installers say that a pattern imprinted concrete driveway will last at least 10 years, but some may last as long as 25 years.The key to keeping your patterned concrete driveway in tip top condition is regular maintenance and swift repair. While there isn’t much maintenance to be done, sweeping the driveway regularly and washing off any oil or petrol spills will stop erosion. If you do notice any problems with your driveway, it’s best to get someone to come and inspect and repair it as soon as possible before any issues become too large. A good way to increase the durability of your patterned driveway is to ensure that it’s laid on a high quality sub-base. To cut costs, you may consider laying it on your existing tarmac or block driveway, but this should only be done if it’s in good condition and there are no signs of sinking. If the sub-base does sink during the lifetime of your concrete driveway, there’s no way to solve it – other than digging up the driveway and starting from scratch.

How much is patterned concrete per m2?
How much patterned concrete costs per m2 will depend on a few factors:
  • Where in the country you live
  • What colour you choose
  • What pattern you choose
  • Whether you choose a standard or a higher-quality concrete
Of course, there are different tools required to imprint the pattern on the driveway, so you must factor these into the cost as well. On average, a square metre of pattern imprinted concrete costs £78, but it can range anywhere between £25 and £130. The average cost of all the materials for the driveway is £1,763, which isn’t too bad – but due to the time and expertise involved, labour costs are an average of £4,063. If you’re thinking about sourcing the materials for patterned concrete and doing it yourself, consider it carefully. Imprinted concrete takes skill and will look unsightly if anything goes wrong with the pattern, but if anything goes wrong with laying the concrete it could affect the integrity of the driveway. The last thing you want is a sunken driveway that you can’t drive your cars onto, so it’s always best to call in the professionals to install your patterned concrete driveway.
