Block Pave Maintenance

Block paving requires very little maintenance, however, it does need cleaning from time to time.

Cleaning Service

Dirt, debris, moss and even weeds will make the driveway unsightly.

We offer a cleaning service that will bring your driveway, path or patio back to its former glory.

We tackle the weeds and then thoroughly clean the driveway.
