The art of imprinting patterns on concrete began in the 1950s, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that it became a popular choice for paving driveways and beyond. The 21st century has brought new developments in bespoke design for driveways, and below we’ll examine the many benefits of imprinted concrete driveways against traditional paving methods.
Weeds, moss and dandelions are blights across driveways paved with standard block paving. Imprinted concrete has full surface area coverage, so there’s no possibility that weeds can grow.
Not only is imprinted concrete available in a large array of colours, including two-tone effects, but there’s an almost limitless amount of patterns and designs to help make your driveway stand out from the crowd.
Aside from its versatility, one of the great benefits of imprinted concrete is it’s virtually maintenance-free. A surface re-seal is suggested every three to five years, but other than that, a good wash with soapy water will clear away any dirt or grime.
A block of imprinted concrete can last up to twenty-five years, and unlike other methods for paving driveways, it won’t suffer from any sinkage if correctly installed. It’s also durable enough to deal with high footfall and vehicles.
