Block

Block

Block paving is a very popular choice with the style conscious homeowner; it has been since the early 1980's when mass production saw the price per square metre fall to a more realistic level. Block paving will add both style and value to any home. New designs and specialised looks has now meant that each driveway can be given a tailor-made distinctiveness. Although new products such as Pattern Imprinted Concrete have become increasingly popular, block paving can still be seen as being in vogue.

Once block paving is installed you may well notice that within 12-18 months the appearance of the driveway begins to deteriorate. It often doesn't seem like two minutes ago that you handed the cheque over, and those weeds and algae are moving in already. The blocks may become wobbly through loss of sand, due to a few attempts of innocent DIY power washing, blasting the sand away, and to make it worse those greenish blemishes that appear on exterior surfaces are getting larger.

At Constructive Driveways we endeavor to eliminate these problems that you will face. Take advantage of our Pavingshield driveway and paving servicing packages.

As with all exterior items block paving requires an element of maintenance. By annually cleaning and resanding the block paving with the option of applying a high quality industrial sealant that is guaranteed to last, is proven to increase the lifespan of your paving. By adopting a professional maintenance plan will offer you complete value from today long into the future.

 

 

 

 

 

Acrylic

The Acrylic sealant that we install can be applied to a broad range of Blocks and Flags.

This product is the solvent-free answer to sand loss in brick, block or flagstone paving

The solution is applied to new or matured paving and directed into vulnerable sand joints. It penetrates up to 10 mm into the jointing sand and surface fabric, cures and creates a flexible bond, stabilizing the joint and preventing weed infestation, burrowing of insects and wind or rain erosion.

By penetrating the surface, it rejuvenates the area and enhances the natural colours of the paving.

Polyurethane

Polyurethane Sealants are unique for concrete block paving which not only enhance the appearance but offers a hard layer of protective coating to prevent oil stains and eliminates weed and grass growth.

It's unique formula penetrates deep into the block and jointing sand, binding the particles together and to the sides of the paving to form a flexible coating which protects the jointing sand from the natural elements and annual power washing which can cause paving failure. The sand joints become so strong that if you test the area by pushing your finger into the sand you can feel how hard it has set. If you require a sample, treated with polyurethane please enquire, we will be more than glad to send one to you.

NB: A good quality sealant will prevent weeds settling into the pavement structure. However, even the very best sealant cannot prevent the build-up of detritus, and if this is allowed to accumulate on top of a surface, the weeds will quite happily take up residence, regardless of the sealant.
