Block paving is a method that primarily creates temporary sidewalks or paved floors that help keep the surface clean and undamaged. This method is mainly preferred to keep the surface unscathed and is used for sidewalks, terraces, driveways and road surfaces.
The entire process of paving does not require construction. The bricks are made of concrete, clay and a composite of sand, stone and cement. The clay tiles are baked well in the oven and are difficult to use for a long time. The bricks used to make the paving stone are also made from crushed glass and even from the building material, which is crushed before mixing.
The different paving stone patterns are:
- Herringbone Pattern: It is the most common paving stone pattern and is considered the strongest among all the different patterns. It is durable and is particularly preferred for driveways and road surfaces. The pattern is created by placing the block either 45 degrees or 90 degrees.
- Although this pattern is not as strong as a herringbone pattern, it is especially preferred for light vehicles moving on its surface.
