Block Paving Driveways
Block paving driveways are a great way to cover large areas of land. These driveways are very durable for the most part. Especially if you make sure that you are hiring a company that is able to install the blocks in a proper manner. Also, if you would need to fix these types of driveways or replace them the fix is not that complex. Within maybe a couple of days you can have a block driveway that is working great. There are a couple of things that may be good to know before you decide to actually purchase this type of driveway.
Different Types of Blocks Will Have A Different Price
It is hard to put an average price on these driveways because of how different the prices of the different types blocks can be. As with many other products usually, the blocks that are on the lower end of the price range are going to be less durable than the ones on the higher end of the spectrum. This is a conversation that we are more than willing to have with you before you have make the decision to go ahead and have us build this type of driveway.
Are These Driveways Glued?
For the most part, the answer is no. It is not like we are going to be creating a puzzle of blocks and then gluing it together to keep them from tearing apart. What we are going to do to make sure that these blocks stay together is to fill all of the joints points with sand and compact them together. This is going to be a more effective way to ensure that you are ultimately going to have a smoother surface that is certainly drivable. This is all part of the installation process that we go through with these types of driveways.
Block Paving Driveways Will Last Up To …
One of the main questions that people have about any driveway, but especially about some of the block driveways that are a bit pricy is something along the lines of literally how long are they going to last. For the most part, you can expect these driveways to stay in good condition for 10 to 15 years. From there, they are probably going to need some repairs and other types of help. Yet, with reasonably good maintenance you can expect these driveways to last around 10 to 15 years without too much trouble.
What You Would Need To Do For Maintenance
Maintenance is not overly tough for these types of driveways. If you get them properly washed a couple of times a year you are probably going to be ok. It is a good idea to address cracks and separation issues early. That way they can get fixed up before you get a major break and literally have to think about redoing the entire surface. So, it can be said that a proper wash and staying vigilant are the two things that you are going to need with regard to maintenance.
