Driveways Essex


Driveways can enhance the visual appearance of your home, whilst providing off-street parking that is considered a vital commodity for most homeowners.

We offer an extensive range of styles and materials that can be used.

We can provide anything from block paving drives to tarmac driveways to to match your taste and budget.

Also called brick paving, the decorative method is commonly used to create a hardstanding or pavement for patios and drives and of course gardens.

The primary benefit for customers opting for block paving using bricks instead of any other material is that the individual bricks that are used, can also be easily replaced at a later stage.

Why is this important?

It allows you to carry out maintenance and corrective work under the paving’s surface.

This avoids leaving any lasting marks once new paving bricks have been put in place of the old ones.

Areas that typically utilise block paving are driveways, pavements, patios, precincts, and town centres. Road surfacing however, is where it’s used most commonly.

The bricks used for paving are normally made from clay or concrete.

However, bricks can also be made out of certain composite materials.

Each type of brick has its own unique method of construction.

The main area of difference between the two is in how they set and become ready for use. Bricks made of clay have to be fired in kilns in order to bake them hard.

Bricks made from concrete on the other hand, need time to set properly. Featuring a porous surface, concrete paving bricks are made by mixing together cement, dyes, sand, small stone hardcore, and a few other materials in different amounts.

Modern manufacturing methods allow block paving bricks to use recycles materials like broken glass and compacted building rubble.

Popular Block Paving Patterns

Block paving can be used to lay a multitude of designs and patterns.

The herringbone is the commonest of these patterns and offers the strongest bond between the block paving bricks thanks to a high degree of interlocking. This makes it apt for driveways as well as road surfacing. The herringbone pattern is created by installing the blocks either at 45 or 90 degrees to the perpendicular.

Basketweave and stretcher bond are two other types of popular block paving patterns. The former offers a comparatively weaker bond, which makes it suitable for areas that are expected to get very few footfalls.

Our designs are a wonderful way to expand your living space into your garden by creating a perfect area for you to enjoy your garden. This area will become ideal for entertaining friends and family, outdoor dining or just enjoying the outside on a sunny day.
