Paving Drives Stoke-on-Trent

Clay blocks are made to last till the end of time – not literally, but at least for a couple of generations. They won’t fade like other blocks do. Concrete blocks, meanwhile, have a lifetime of about twenty years, although they too can last longer. Concrete is more likely to fade over time in the sunlight. You can mitigate the risks of sunlight by having your block paving Stoke on Trent area sealed against the elements. This is true for both sunshine and the rain, which has been known to cause water damage. Clay bricks are more prone to growth such as mosses and weeds. They are difficult to cut – as such, they are cut into rectangular or square shapes and it’s rare to find them in more “fancy” designs. Clay blocks are more expensive than concrete – but concrete, because of its adaptability and versatility in terms of shape and size, is arguably more eye catching. It is easier to cut, and so patterns can be made that are unlikely with clay.

Block paving of both concrete and clay varieties is far more popular today in domestic settings than any period pre dating the 1980s. This can be put down to aesthetics. Block paving Stoke-on-Trent of all kinds looks terrific, from the simplest of designs to the most complex patterns. It may also be because of cost. The mass manufacturing of block paving slates, tiles and bricks has brought down their prices. It means that today the consumer is no longer choosing between simple clay and concrete. There are numerous other varieties of blocks, and glazing techniques, and laying techniques, and colours and shapes and sizes. All of them mean that the consumer has a more difficult (but arguably, more enjoyable) time choosing which surfacing they want in their residential setting.
