Paving Tips

Paving

 

We all know that first impressions are what count. A modern or traditional patio can dramatically improve the appearance and value of your home. Patios offer the ideal cost effective way of creating that outdoor room for your property, a well designed patio will add character and luxury to any garden. Patios are often trough of as the preferred areas where we entertain guests, enjoy family life, spend time socialising with friends or simply trying to get away from it all. With a little imagination, patios can become sophisticated retreats, and if you desire the most natural look with a natural stone paving you mind get that. Our team also can give you a beautiful newly paved driveway to really enhance the look and appeal of your home. Remember…. you look good if your home looks good .
How to maintain your paving
 
For optimum performance paving generally requires regular maintenance, so to achieve the best results, Tobermore recommend that paving is cleaned two to three times a year.

 

Soon after paving…

 

When an area has just been paved, allow it to settle for a few weeks. After this, you may wish to lightly hose down the paving to remove any excess sand or dirt. The area should then be treated with a weed killer suppressant, two or three times a year as required.
 
General Dirt... 

 

Regular sweeping to prevent the build up of detritus is recommended. It must be accepted that these products will need more maintenance if the overall appearance is to be maintained.A light power hose at medium pressure is generally all that is required to clean general dirt and grime. Do not use high pressure power washers as aggressive power-washing can damage the product surface. A trial area should be tested before large scale powerwashing takes place.

 
For general cleaning of dirt and algae, vigorous brushing with a stiff yard brush with plenty of hot detergent solution (washing up liquid or non-bio washing powder), thoroughly rinsed with clean water should suffice. Repeated treatment may be required for paved areas sited beneath trees or in permanent/near permanent shade.
It is also possible to seal your paving with a resin material which combats staining and weed growth, while also enhancing colour and appearance. The acrylic sealer is sprayed onto the block paving and forms a ‘skin’ on top of the paving and the jointing sand giving an easily maintained finish. It is ideal for courtyards and other paved areas.
