Refurbishment of a block paved driveway

As beautiful and versatile as block paving can be, like so many other pavings, it can start to look tired and unloved unless it’s well maintained. This project took a well-used 20-year-old private driveway and completely refurbished it to look almost like new. Cleaning, removing oil stains, fixing low spots, re-jointing, and finally sealing, see it all here.
