Looking for a concrete driveway?Patterned imprinted concrete is a great option
Patterned imprinted concrete is an excellent choice for driveways as an alternative to block paving or tarmac. The technique allows us to create the appearance of multiple paving stones or slabs, but with the hard-wearing characteristics of a single layer of concrete.
The Concrete Driveway Process
To create your concrete driveway, the surface is prepared and dug out to the appropriate level. Then concrete is laid to fill the surface, and before the concrete has fully set a stencil is applied to the upper surface to create a paving, stone or other pattered effect. A custom edging pattern can be included in this to really finish off the look.
Once the new concrete has fully cured, the attractive, low-maintenance driveway, path or patio surface is ready to be walked or driven on.
Why choose patterned concrete for your new driveway?
Our patterned imprinted concrete driveways are available in a wide range of textures, colours and patterns. This means your concrete drive can be laid in a style to complement the appearance your property. Concrete is a highly versatile surface, as it fits into nearly any shape or outline, especially areas that are difficult to cover using block paving.
On a regular home driveway we lay the concrete to a depth of at least 100-125mm, with the option of a thicker layer on heavy traffic areas. Patios or pathways can cope with a shallower depth of 75-100mm.
Once you've chosen your concrete pattern and colour we can also include a concrete sealer to enhance the longevity and appearance of the surface. This gives the patterned concrete a more stain-resistant finish and adds a fantastic satin effect to the entire area.
