Block paving is over priced i'm jumping for joy as I've just saved loads of money :j by looking at alternatives to Block Paving.
The average block paving price round here which is Petts Wood area of Kent is £65 - £75 per square meter.
I had a concrete driveway and didn't want to pay that much so I looked in to other options which included printed concrete, coloured tarmac etc but the one I eventually stumbled upon was Resin Bonded Surfacing it was a fraction of the price and it looks really smart and massive !!!
My drive is 110sq meters and the block Paving quote was £7150.00 + Disposal costs of the old concrete which they said would be around £500.
The price I paid for Resin Bonded Surface was £2915.00 and there were no disposal costs as they went over the top of the concrete. So I saved a MASSIVE £4235.00 + Disposal :j :j :j and I have a drive that doesn't look like everyone else's !!
I found the company i uesd on google not sure if your allowed to put links on here so I won't but they're easy to find. They were very polite & professional it took them 2 days to install it 1 day preparing the surface & the second laying it.
I hope this helps you all to save lots of pennies.
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
