We love a block paving driveway; it gives a whole new look to a home and can allow you to stand out among your street and add to that ever-important kerb appeal. So, here’s why you should consider a block paving driveway.

But first what is block paving?

Block Paving uses bricks to create a surface or pattern for your driveway. These bricks are laid on top of a sub-base and sand. Some excavation and preparation will need to take place, but once complete will look stunning and last for years to come.

  1. Versatility

One of the great things about block paving is its versatility due to being able to choose from a wide range of bricks. You can customize the size, colour, and style to exactly how you want it. You can even be more extravagant and mix your bricks up to create patterns and complementary edges.

  1. Durability

As we know brick is a heavily durable material and will last many years to come. It’s incredibly hard-wearing and as such can handle varying weather conditions, vehicles, and pedestrian traffic. At Henson all our driveways are guaranteed for 10 years, so you never have to worry.

  1. Maintenance

Other surfacing materials offer a long-lasting finish but do require maintenance to upkeep. However, Block Paving is not one of them. Due to its hard-wearing nature, it can handle the elements with ease and doesn’t require heavy maintenance. Just clean it with soap and water and it will be as good as new.

  1. Sustainability

Here at Henson, we are always considering our efforts in sustainability in everything we do. Block Paving is a great choice for the environment. This is due to the porous nature, which means block paving provides an area for water to rest during rainy seasons. You will not notice surface water on your paving.

We think you should consider a Block Paving driveway for these four reasons. They offer a great surface, that will look stunning for your home that you can style to exactly how you want it. It will last for years to come with little to no maintenance while being sustainable too.
