Block paving is a method that primarily involves creating temporary sidewalks or paving to keep the surface clean and undamaged. This method is primarily preferred to keep the surface intact and is used for sidewalks, patios, driveways and street surfaces.
No construction work is required for the entire paving process. The bricks are made of concrete, clay and a composite of sand, stone and cement. The clay tiles bake well in the oven and are difficult to use for long periods of time. Also, the bricks that are used to make the pavers are made from crushed glass and even the building material that is crushed before mixing.
The different paving stone patterns are:
- Herringbone Pattern: It is the most common cobblestone pattern and is considered the strongest among all the different patterns. It is durable and is especially preferred for driveways and road surfaces. The pattern is created by placing the block at either a 45 degree or 90 degree angle.
- Although not as strong as a herringbone pattern, this pattern is particularly preferred for light vehicles moving on its surface.
How to plan the paving stone for your terrace:
You need to determine the exact size of the area where you want to lay the paving stone. You must also decide on the purpose of the paving, whether it is light or permanent paving. Only then can you choose the most suitable laying pattern for the paving stone. Various patterns and designs are available. Therefore, choose the colors and shades that match the paving stone pattern that you intend to use in the open area around the house. During the installation you have several options, select them accordingly.
