In this blog post we’re discussing the increasing popularity of pattern imprinted patios and driveways among homeowners in Wigan and the surrounding areas. An incredibly hardwearing, affordable and impressive looking alternative to traditional paved or tarmacked surfaces, pattern imprinted concrete is a popular option for many across the UK.
Changing the appearance of concrete has been going on for over a century, with many companies using colours and stains to make their work appear more interesting since the 1890’s. Stamping concrete was first introduced in the 1950’s and has been widely used since innovative new stamps were created in the 1970’s. Since then, the industry has grown in Wigan and throughout the UK to see a wide variety of patterns and dyes become readily available. These are used for installing pattern imprinted patios, driveways, roads and even interior floors of various designs.
At Superior Driveways, we specialise in pattern imprinted concrete for homeowners in Wigan and the wider Greater Manchester areas. Based in Bury, our family team run by expert Darren Skillen is well known in the local area for our high-quality patios and driveways. Not only are our pattern imprinted patios and driveways used for their practicality and durability, but also for their aesthetic and kerb appeal.
We use specialist tools to make pattern imprinted concrete installations quicker and simpler than ever, ensuring you receive a product of a superior standard with minimal disruption to your daily routine. Our domestic customers are often shocked when they hear we can install a beautiful, bespoke patio or driveway within 7 to 10 days under most circumstances, with some of this time simply being the surface settling.
One of the most innovative and popular features we offer to homeowners in Wigan and the surrounding areas is the PICS Bond Natural Stone overlay system. This system makes use of natural stone aggregate for dressing and covering the surface of driveways and can be installed on new or existing surfaces such as concrete, wood or asphalt. We are also able to incorporate house numbers and names, making it an ideal option for domestic customers.
Pattern imprinted patios have numerous advantages over other choices such as block paving or decking. Affordable and versatile, pattern imprinted concrete is also incredibly easy to maintain. We recommend that Wigan homeowners have a simple routine of surface sweeping and washing the patio to keep it looking pristine for many years.
