Block Paving or Pattern Imprinted Concretein Kidlington?

You want a new driveway for your Kidlington property and you’ve decided it’s either going to be a block paving or a pattern imprinted concrete installation. Both have great advantages but it’s no surprise that youmight feel unsure on which material to choose. This is where the paving contractors at Parklane Driveways are always on hand to help.

Our paving contractors are able to lay both surfaces professionally but, at the end of the day it’s your decision that matters. To help you choose the right materials for driveways, read on to learn out about the differences between these two highly desirable materials and discover which onewill best suit your Kidlington home or business.

The Advantages of Block Paving

Block Paving offers a lasting finish to complement anyproperty. There’s a wide range of styles, textures and colours available with plenty of options to suit everyone. Block paving ensures that, with the correct maintenance, driveways laid in the Kidlington area will last for many years to come. Should the need arise to rework any areas due to damage or the need to access underground pipes, our paving contractors can do thejob with minimal uplifting. This is a unique benefit that safeguards your original investment.

Our paving contractors are able to install a strong sub-base, which ensure block paving stays exactly where it should be. Many homeowners in Kidlington believe that if the surfacesof driveways start to moveor sink, it’s a problem with the actual block paving. In truth, it is more likely to be the sub-base not being installed properly.

The cost of block paving is usually more expensive than the cost of pattern imprinted concrete but, dependant on one or two small factors,it’s closer in price than you think.

The Benefits of Pattern Imprinted Concrete

Patterned imprinted concrete is a newer type of installation for driveways in Kidlington. A layer of concrete is poured over a functional sub-base and a colour is applied with a hardener. Next, the wet concrete has a patterned matt applied to create the required finish. Designs range from textured stone to brickwork. Replication of other paving materials gives pattern imprinted concrete surfaces a more stylish and interesting range of finishes.

An unlimited range of designs and colours can be chosen. Our paving contractors can cover large areas with pattern imprinted concrete much quicker than with block paving. This is favoured by many of our commercial customers in Kidlington. There can be issues regarding drainage and the possibility of cracking in areas if the sub-base is not laid properly.

For this reason alone, Parklane Driveways provide homeowners in Kidlington with unconditional guarantees on all labour and materials used.
