According to Bosun Brick, a leading manufacturer of pre-cast concrete pavers and kerbs, the selection of the correct product for your application is essential for the long term durability of the paved area.
The manufacture of concrete paving blocks is a highly specialised process. Concrete pavers need to be dimensionally accurate and meet the required compressive strengths and abrasion resistance standards. Product should ideally be sourced from a SABS accredited manufacturer. (SABS 1058 sets out the standards and tolerances for concrete paving blocks.
These are fairly small paving blocks which fit together in various ways to create an overall pattern which suits your home and taste. Another popular method for building a driveway is to use gravel, or shingle, in a loose way. This is also good for security as you will hear the distinct sound of the gravel when someone walks on it. You could also go for a concrete driveway, these will be cheaper to build, and offer a hard wearing, durable surface, but I must say, don’t look the best compared to a block paved driveway.
Block building will last almost forever and requires very little maintenance. Concrete is one of the most durable materials available on the market, which means any building will retain its beauty for much longer, especially since concrete is not susceptible to corrosion or other forms of degradation. Thus, by building a block concrete, you will be investing for the long term since your building will maintain its value as it will not be susceptible to the wide range of problems other building materials come with.
