Block paving is one of the most popular choices for driveways and paths throughout the UK. Not only does professionally installed block paving have aesthetic appeal, but they are durable and long lasting. Pavers are available in a range of different colours and styles to suit all tastes and requirements.
The price of block paving varies depending on the type of paver you choose, with a range of standard and premium varieties available. If your pavers are damaged, repairs costs are cheaper than other driveways, as the damaged pavers can easily be removed and replaced.
To keep your driveway looking its best, occasional cleaning will be required. Professional paver cleaning services are often affordable and remove any built-up dirt, grime, mould and weeds. After cleaning, paving will need to be re-sanded and then re-sealed, which will make it look brand new again.
