Why opt for Block Paving Driveways?
If you are investing in a new driveway, opt for a material that is not only long-lasting, but also give one of the most attractive finishes too – block paving.
Becoming popular in the 1980s, there was only one problem with block paving – lack of excitement! Colours and the simplicity of design meant that it was an often overlooked material but, gradually the market began to grow. In addition, the advances in manufacturing increased the range of colours, patterns and finishes.
The choices today when it comes to block paving driveways for your Glasgow property, starts with deciding if you want concrete paving or ones made from clay. And, like most things there are pros and cons in using each material as part of block paving driveways…

The variations on choices of colour can seem an almost impossible task to choose from for Glasgow customers looking for a unique, customised block paving driveways. But, when choosing colours, bear in mind the colour of your property and the surrounding landscape.
Choosing the right colour is important as you do not want something that contrasts too sharply with your property and neither will attempting to replicate the colours of your home exactly be a successful choice either.
There are also now different sizes of paving, meaning that a pattern can be created, fitting together smaller pieces with larger paving to create a pattern than can be repeated across the area.
Likewise, the addition of paving that is textured, as opposed to a smooth finish can also add a small detail making block paving driveways a popular choice for many Glasgow customers.
