Paving In Edinburgh

Pathways are a necessary aspect of every home. There are several to choose from depending on your preferences and your needs. At Edinburgh paving, we offer a variety of paving materials suitable to fit any design. Below are some of the paving options our clients can choose from:

Crazy Paving

This was a very common means of hard-surfacing used outdoors around the 80s and 90s in the Edinburgh area. It was very popular in those days because it was trendy for the time. It was also cheap because it was made from cement and broken paving slabs. It is designed by arranging paving stones usually of irregular shapes and sizes in an irregular pattern. These patterns can sometimes have mortar in between the gaps. With new developments, the style of crazy paving also changed and the modern ones look different from the old ones. Materials of high quality (slabs and paving stones) are now used to create a very eye-catching effect.

Asphalt Paving

Asphalt is a material that places functionality above all else. What it does not offer in terms of beauty or appearance, it more than makes up for in durability. It is a good and reliable material that we recommend to people living in Edinburgh. Compared to other materials for paving it is not expensive and can be repaired easily. It is a good choice for paving generally, except when it is used in large spaces such as a conservatory or patio.

Brick Paving

This is another material commonly used by Edinburgh residents. There are so many colour combinations that can be achieved with this type of paving which makes it very beautiful and appealing to look at. The repair or maintenance does not require a lot as the faulty blocks just have to be identified and replaced. It is suited for areas such as patios, precincts, road surfacing, and driveways.

Granite Paving

Granite is very popular in paving Edinburgh because it can withstand the weather in the UK. It is particularly known for its strength, making it a very suitable option for pathways. Although it is quite expensive, we recommend you use it as the secondary material for pathways. It is also suitable to use for the patio of houses because it has a long lifespan and remains stable despite constant movement.

Sandstone paving

Sandstone is one of the most popularly used building material because of its top-notch quality in all areas. It is a very attractive material which is suitable for large areas such as patios or smaller areas like pathways. It is like a cheaper version of granite because it gives most of the same advantages at a lower cost. It can be designed based on preference because of the availability of several colours that may be combined to form attractive designs.
