Overlay Paving: If It Isn’t Broke, Don’t Fix It!

How many times have you found yourself staring out at your garden path, or your walkways, and winced at the state of repair they’re in? There may be divots in the stone, it’s dingy, or it’s just plain ugly. You can remember how sleek and smooth it looked when it was new, but those days are long behind you. You know you should replace it, but that would cost a shiny penny. And there’s nothing wrong with it when it comes down to the foundation: it’s just the surface that’s become unsightly.



Which is why, before you do anything else, you should make sure the solution you’re proposing is going to fix the problem you have.


When you find yourself facing a situation like this, it’s important to remember that your existing pavement isn’t the problem. Fundamentally, it is still serving the function it was intended to do. It isn’t cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged… it just needs a cosmetic fix.

If your car had nicks and scratches on it, would you scrap it and buy a new car? Of course not. You’d take it into the professionals, and have it repainted.

That is precisely what overlay paving does for your problematic surfaces. The overlay covers and protects the damaged surface, presenting a more attractive layer for people to see. An overlay can be put on in a fraction of the time, and can provide a more affordable solution to an existing pavement entirely. Even better, it uses fewer resources and doesn’t require you to dispose of any old pavement. You just lay down a fresh top layer, and you’re giving your same reliable walkway a dazzling new look.
