Types of Paving

Types and Styles of Block Paving

When it comes to block paving, there are two basic types. These are concrete block pavers (CBP) and clay bricks. Each type comes in a range of thicknesses from 40mm to 100mm. For domestic projects, 50mm and 60mm blocks are the most suitable whereas we use greater thicknesses for commercial work, and for industrial surfacing like pavement and road construction.

One reason why block paving is so popular with customers in Gravesend and the surrounding areas is the wide range of styles that we have available. Pavers come in various colours, shapes and sizes, meaning there’s a design permutation to suit every taste and just about every style of property.

The First Highways team lays block paving in multiple patterns for an attractive and eye-catching finish. The most popular patterns include herringbone and basketweave.
