About Block Paving in Warrington
Block Paving, also known as brick paving, is commonly used as a decorative method of creating a pavement or hard-standing. The main benefit of using bricks over other materials is that individual blocks can be lifted and replaced when they suffer damage or become worn. The bricks that are used are typically made up of concrete or clay, and sometimes other composite materials. The frequently used concrete style blocks are made from porous materials; many of which are made from recycled materials such as crushed glass and old building rubble.
Using blocks can achieve many different laying patterns, one of the most popular is the herringbone pattern; as it offers the strongest bond due to its interlocking.
