Block Paving FAQs
A properly laid block paving driveway should be built to last and will not sink or move in any way. To achieve this it is essential that the sub base is constructed using concrete and not the normal, loose type 1 aggregate. With this in mind the cost of block paving should be in excess of £100 + VAT per m2.
Block paving is best cleaned by a specialist company using a rotating brush and cleaning chemicals. The use and frequent overuse of a jet spray can wash out the sealing sand causing blocks to move and water to destabilise the laying surface.
A well laid block paving driveway should need little maintenance except regular leaf blowing and twice yearly weed killing.
Sealing block paving to stop weeds has varying success and although there are some products from Marshalls which have worked as long as the driveway has been constructed properly.
Permeable block paving is achievable although can prove extremely expensive the permeability is short lived. The blocks are laid onto a permeable base and then the gaps are filled with a very fine grit to allow the water to drain between the gaps in the blocks. If these gaps are not kept clean and free from seasonal detritus they will block up and essentially seal the driveway. It is also very important that no type of permeable driveway is laid in an area with heavy clay soil.
