Block Paving Berkshire


Block paving also known as 'brick paving' is a commonly used decorative method of creating a hardstanding. The main benefit over other materials used to create a hard surface is that with block paving the individual bricks that go together to make up the entire block paved surface can be lifted up and then replaced. This flexibility allows for remedial work to be carried out under the surface of the paving without any visible notice to the surface once the paving bricks have been replaced. This is why this type of brick paving is often referred to as flexible paving.


Most common areas of use for block paving are for driveways, pavement, patios, town centres, precincts as well as more & more common use in road surfacing.


There are two popular makes of block paving brick and they are; concrete, and clay (although other composite materials do exist to make up an individual brick) - each with its own way of preparation that go to make up the construction of a paving brick.


The main difference in these two type of brick is the way they set hard ready for use;


  • A clay block paving brick has to be fired in a kiln in order to bake the brick hard, and a concrete block paving brick has to be allowed set.
  • The concrete paving bricks are a porous form of brick formed by mixing small stone hardcore, dyes, and depending on the finished colour required, cement and sand in various amounts.


There are also other materials which can be added to make up a block paving brick however they would be specific to each individual manufacturer. Many block paving manufacturing methods now allow for the use of recycled materials in the construction of the paving bricks, such as crushed glass, and crushed old building rubble to replace the stone hardcore that is used.
