Pattern Imprinted Concrete Driveways Nottingham
Pattern imprinted concrete is one of the newest trends in flooring. It combines pattern and color, which makes it a perfect addition to any room or building. It is an alternative to tarmac on driveways and pedestrian walkways. Patterns can be anything from traditional brick paves through textured paving reminiscent of old cobbles up to geometric shapes such as stripes, circles and blocks – all in different colors.
It is possible now to create almost any pattern imaginable by using a mixture of colors from light pastel shades through deep blacks and whites; by applying two different textures such as roughcast blocks on top of smooth pebbles; or by cutting patterned sections of pattern impression concrete into the surface. The options are unlimited!

Pattern embedded pavements are created by a process of affixing patterns to the surface layer of asphalt or kerb stones with hot, liquid bitumen and then coating it with stone aggregate for protection against wear. These tools and equipment we use include:
- Hot-melt adhesive spray guns
- Tow trucks
- Concrete pumps (often self-propelled)
- Concrete mixers (either portable or stationary)
- Cement trucks
Power trowels for smoothing and pattern imprinting hot asphalt.
