Paving slabs are popular because of the unlimited designs and patterns that allow you to be creative. Paving slabs are also durable and strong which means they will last for many years.

The choice of colour is endless allowing you to choose different shades of materials to suit and compliment the surroundings of your house.

Simulated stone slabs offer versatility, durability and afforability.

Concrete slabs are different to standard paving slabs because the concrete is poured and the application is one single unit instead of individual units. It is a great choice for large areas.

It is better to use smaller slabs for driveways as they are stronger. The slabs should measure anything below 600mm x 600mm. Bigger slabs are liable to crack under the weight of vehicles.

Slate or Slasto is a natural stone which is highly versatile with numerous ways to be used. Slate is durable, even lasting several hundred years. It is waterproof and fireproof and needs little or no maintenance.

However, like tiling, paving with Slate/Slasto requires the use of a cement base and is a more expensive than the alternative concrete slabs.
