Unfortunately, many people still have the impression that a block is unsightly and utilitarian, but technology has advanced significantly and now these blocks can be treated with various render products and techniques, allowing you to create impressive finishes that look a lot more expensive than they actually are.
Likewise, fires pose less of a problem to the structure of a concrete building as a concrete block can take a high degree of heat without cracking or suffering severe damage. Thus, if the worst does occur, at least your building will be safe and won’t crumble to the ground.
After you wait for the 72 hour period you need to start fully laying the path. You take your blocks and put them over the sub base in the pattern that you want. After you have set every stone exactly how you want it you use the light plate compactor or your piece of wood to push the stones into the sub base and concrete. Make sure that there are no spaces or gaps in between each stone or you will have serious problems with contracting and expanding joints in the long term. The only place you are going to leave a space is if the stones are jointed. In that case leave just enough room for them to set.
Another great application for concrete is in building driveways. Many people aren’t too happy with the idea of pavers, thinking that they are more expensive or less durable than a poured concrete driveway. In fact, quite the opposite is true because by using pavers and sand, not only is it easier to maintain your driveway, it is also more cost effective.
