People nowadays prefer paving block compared to other pavement such as concrete or asphalt. Their interest toward the use of paving block increase because paving block is an eco-friendly construction which is very useful in helping soil water conservation, can be done faster, has easier installation and maintenance, has a variety of shades that increase the aesthetic value, also costs cheaper than the other.
The industrial sector has also caught on to this trend as concrete paving, specifically designed and manufactured with this segment of the market in mind, can easily handle heavy traffic such as trucks and cranes. Because of the low maintenance required, the total cost of paving is more affordable than tar over the long term.
Now for a little about types of driveways to help homeowners and landlords decide on the best option for them. Driveways usually come in one of four types, these are Brick/Stone, Concrete, Asphalt (also called Tarmac) or Gravel, although they are most often constructed with block paving bricks or slabs.
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.
