The results achieved by our team are recognised for their style and longevity, so it’s little surprise that we receive an array of queries about our services from old and new clients alike.

For the convenience of our customers, we’ve answered a selection of the more frequent questions we receive below.

How much experience do you have as paving contractors?
The team at Parklane Driveways share more than 20 years of trade and industry experience. Our clients in the Oxford area can rest assured that when it comes to pathways, walkways, patios and driveways, we’ve undertaken every kind of installation countless times.

What is pattern imprinted concrete?
Pattern imprinted concrete is a popular, cost-effective alternative to block paving. Usually installed in driveways, but equally at home when used for patios, pattern imprinted concrete comes in an extensive range of colours, designs and finishes to suit the tastes of any Oxford property owner.

To achieve our outstanding results in this area, we dig out the chosen area, lay a sub-base and pour out the required amount of concrete. When the concrete has been levelled, we then apply a colour surface hardener and an antiquing agent before placing imprinting mats to create the chosen design.

When these steps have been taken, and the results washed down and finished with a gloss or matt sealer, our Oxford customers are left with stunning pattern imprinted concrete driveways and patios that last for years to come.

Do you install block paving?
Absolutely. As experienced paving contractors, we design and install block paving driveways, walkways, pathways and patios of any design. This low-maintenance and hard-wearing style never goes out of fashion and instantly increases the kerb appeal of any Oxford area property.

In addition, block paving offers an environmentally friendly benefit. Due to its porous nature, rain water doesn’t run directly into the drains, but rather filters through into the groundwater table. This ensures that block paving installations don’t allow water pooling during rainy periods.

Can you lay all kinds of patios?
Yes, we can. In our role as paving contractors, we have designed and installed patios of every material, shape and size. Whether it’s block paving or pattern imprinted concrete patios, we take the ideas of our Oxford clients and turn them into reality.

To discuss our range of patios, or to book an initial consultation, please contact us.

Do you lay driveways?
Yes, we lay driveways of any kind. From residential new builds to garage forecourts, the driveways we install in Oxford and the surrounding areas are known for their style, functionality and hard-wearing nature.

From block paving to pattern imprinted concrete, we have driveways to suit the most demanding of environments.
