Block paving

​Block paving is a common site throughout the UK, from the footpaths on the High Street to many domestic driveways. Block paving provides a versatile, strong and aesthetically pleasing surface that can be used in any number of applications, including driveways, roads, footpaths, car parks, patios, steps, and many more. We can help with all of your block paving needs, with expert advice and the UK’s leading paving installers.

Resin bound drives and patios

Resin bound drives and patios are economical and SUDS compliant, meaning that finished surface meets building regulations Sustainable Urban Drainage System requirements.

The porous nature of resin bound surfaces helps prevent rapid surface water runoff that causes flooding and a build up of puddles.

With it’s anti slip finish available in multiple colours, it’s provides greater grip than block paving and tarmac surfaces.

Tarmac driveways

Tarmac driveways are commonly used throughout the UK, as they provide an affordable and flexible solution that requires little ongoing maintenance. They use the same asphalt that is used on roads, which makes them extremely well suited to supporting the weight of numerous vehicles.

Natural stone and cobble driveways

A sandstone driveway is an extremely hardwearing and aesthetically pleasing. Sandstone setts / granite setts are natural stone that have been cut or split into cobble size. They are laid on a full mortar bed on a reinforced concrete base and then hand pointed to create the ultimate looking paving. Every stone is unique and is perfect for use in designer driveways. Installing a sandstone sett driveway is very labour intensive and is limited to only the very best skilled installers. The cost of a sandstone driveway is around twice the price of a block paved driveway, but the results clearly show why.
