Why choose Block Paving for your New Driveway?

At Classic Paving in Sheffield, our block paving services include a full site predation and excavation, our professionals will also carry out an inspection and evacuation of the site, this will depend on the land, especially if there’s an existing driveway. Should you have any soft spots then a sub base may be needed during the installation, this will ensure stability and foundation.

We tend to edge out the site, this is to indicate the space that will be being excavated, as well as laying out the block paving. All of our block paving comes with standard sub bases, the land will then be compacted with a compactor and a layer of sharp sand will be laid on top of it. This should be raked and checked to ensure its level. There’s no need to worry about this, our professional driveway installers can take care of this for you.

Our team of professional block paving installers will start to lay the block paving in your chosen colours and patterns. We’ll also ensure that the design is to your exact requirements. When it comes to the types of blocks we use, we’ll make sure that they don’t leave you with any noticeable shadings and colour patches.

After the blocks have been laid, kiln dried sand will be brushed into the joints, next they’ll be compacted using vibrating plates. This is done to strengthen the interlocking as well as making sure that the blocks are laid levelly. We’ll then undergo this process again and to make sure that none of the joints left unfilled.

As one of the most popular choices for new driveways, you’d be right in thinking that there are plenty of reasons why you would choose block paving when looking for a new driveway for your home.

when it comes to your outdoor living space, Classic Paving believe that it’s important for the exterior of your property to reflect what’s happening inside. To have a great-looking, well-rounded home, it’s important that both the inside and outside areas of your home are looked after.

Your driveway is one of the first things people will see when they visit your home, so it’s worth taking the time to make it look nice. With a new block paving driveway or patio, you can ensure the exterior of your home looks as good on the outside as it does on the inside.


Block paving is suitable to be laid all year round, however if you have a block paving installation carried out in the winter months, then the process is likely to be slower, due to the adverse and unpredictable weather conditions. It is recommended that block paving shouldn’t be installed at temperatures over 30C or below -8C.

When it comes to our installations, we only the dig down to the necessary depth required in order to lay your block paving. The total digging depth needed is the total depth of the blocks and sand combined with the average depth for most block paving installations being around 25-30cm.

When it comes to the digging of the base, this usually takes around 1-2 days depending on the base material. Our paving specialists will then lay the bedding of sand, during this part of the process, you won’t be able to walk over the surface for at least a few hours, until the blocks have been installed.  However, driving vehicles over the surface is prohibited until the sanding and compaction has been completed.

The first few weeks after the block paving process is complete, we recommend leaving your paving and letting nature take its course. After this time it’s fine to clean your patio and driveway on a regular basis. We recommend that after around 3 years, it’s time to give your driveway a good thorough clean or have a sand and reseal carried out.

Planning permission isn’t usually required for block paved areas, if you suffer from a flooding problem or your water runs into a public drain, then you may need to contact the council in regard to looking at drainage options. Councils tend to vary in their rules but it’s always best to check.

Yes they can, sometimes block paving may become damaged, this tends to happen over time. If this is the case, then any faded, cracked, chipped or damaged blocks can then easily be replaced quickly and efficiently.

Yes, the great thing about block paving is that there are a number of different colour options to choose from.
