Main Benefits

Block paving has a lot to offer the homeowner, including:

  • Semi-Permeable Surface– Allows water to drain away naturally.
  • Range of Patterns and Designs– Twin colours works well, and rectangular blocks can make attractive patterns.
  • Strong & Durable– A block paving driveway can withstand heavy traffic, which is great of you own a caravan or motorhome, and the supplier would issue you with a long warranty. There’s little that can go wrong if the driveway is installed by professionals, and the occasional power wash will keep the driveway clean.

Other benefits include a non-slip surface, and as the blocks are semi-permeable, the water drains away naturally (you might need drainage installed under the blocks).
