Suggest a concrete driveway or patio to most people and they would immediately think of plain grey concrete which has been tamped to form a basic, unattractive but functional surface.

At best it would have a rippled effect on the surface to provide more grip and skid resistance.  However, concrete just happens to be the base material for an extremely wide range of attractive paving surfaces for driveways, footpaths and patios. Flag stones are a type of concrete paving, block paving is made out of concrete and well, pattern imprinted concrete, is concrete.

Concrete Block Paving

Concrete Block Paving is one of the most popular choices for domestic driveways and patios in the UK but not many people associate it with concrete paving immediately.

Block paving is available from a large number of manufacturers but we tend to concentrate on blocks from Bradstone™, Brett™, Plasmor™, Marshalls™ and Stonemarket™.

Blocks are manufactured in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours and textures and can be laid in various patterns such as herringbone and basket weave.

Pattern Imprinted Concrete

Pattern Imprinted Concrete attempts to replicate natural paving products such as stone, slate, brick, cobbles and timber boards.

This is done by colouring the concrete and forming patterns in the surface using printing mats.

Pattern imprinted concrete is also known as stamped concrete (because installers stamp on the printing mats to create the patterns), pressed concrete (because the printing mats are pressed into the semi-wet concrete surface), decorative concrete and textured concrete.

Concrete Paving Stones

Concrete flag stones are not as popular for driveways as they once were but are still widely used for patios and garden paving.

Most block paving manufacturers also manufacture concrete flag stones. Like blocks, they are available in a wide range of sizes, colours and textures to replicate natural stone paving such as sandstone, slate, limestone and granite.

Concrete flag stones are also ideal for footpaths, especially as stepping stones on a lawn or gravel area.

Plain Concrete Driveways

Plain concrete driveways, just like concrete flag stones, are not seen as often as they used to be as homeowners have chosen more decorative and attractive paving surfaces such as block paving, pattern imprinted concrete and resin & aggregate paving.

It is seen as a cheap option compared to these other types of paving and is probably used more for garage and shed bases than driveways and patios.  Like pattern imprinted concrete driveways, it should have acrylic sealant applied to protect the surface.

All of these types of concrete paving start life as cement, aggregate and water mixed together to form concrete.  But paving manufacturers have used their creativity, imagination and technical skills to convert it into attractive but durable driveways and patios.

Concrete surfacing can also be used for many other applications, from barn floors to swimming pools and many of our concrete surfacing contractors also specialise in industrial concrete flooring for factories, warehouses and other commercial applications.
