What is block paving?

 

  • Block paving is a special type of paving, most commonly used for driveways.
  • Its heavy-duty, durable design means that it can handle cars and vehicle traffic without breaking, cracking or splitting.
  • Do not use conventional concrete pavers for driveways though, they are better suited to patios and walkways.

Can you paint concrete block pavers?

 

You can paint block paving, just as you can paint any pavers. However, you need to make sure you use specially designed paint for the job. Ideally, you should look for brick paint that’s stain resistant. This will help you paint concrete block paving, while also sealing it against weathering and everyday damage.

 

 

How to maintain block pavers

 

  • One of the best ways to maintain block paving is to seal the gaps in-between the blocks. This will help with cleaning efforts and ensures weeds and moss won’t grow in-between the pavers.
  • Cleaning your driveway with a pressure washer is ideal, though it’s possible to clean block paving with just warm water and bleach.

 

How do I clean block paving?

 

There are many ways of safely cleaning your block paving; some of which are only suited to block pavers as other conventional pavers aren’t as durable. 

Thankfully, the most effective ways of cleaning block paving are often the simplest. One way you can is by making good use of bleach, a stiff brush, and some elbow grease. 

First, you’ll need to dilute the bleach into an appropriate cleaning solution. Mix the bleach with water, roughly to a five-part warm water, one-part bleach ratio. Pour the cleaning mixture onto your driveway and start brushing.

Once you’ve scrubbed the driveway, leave it for approximately 15 minutes. Once you’ve left the bleach to do its job, rinse the driveway blocks with some warm water.

 

How to remove oil from block paving

 

Soapy water and elbow grease will only get you so far; more stubborn stains need a deep cleaning solution.

For example, if you’re trying to remove oil from block paving, then a pressure washer could be the answer. Not only does it save you getting on your hands and knees to scrub black spills, but it also makes your driveway look sparkling new within minutes.

Alternatively, you can use cat litter to absorb motor oil stains. Simply add a handful of cat litter directly onto the stain to soak up the liquid and then leave for 10 minutes. Once time is up, just scoop up the litter and throw it away. This method may need to be repeated several times for particularly sticky oil patches.
