Why You Should Invest in a Quality Steel Carport from TechnoPave

Just because you have a garage doesn’t mean a carport will be of no use to you. A carport will not only increase the value of your home but offer many other benefits you haven’t even considered like saving your braai next time it rains or protecting your guest’s car from the sun or hail. Carports also allow protection for cars of any size, boats, bikes or caravans. Even your pets will benefit from the shade on a hot day.

Installing a steel carport might just be the best decision you make all year! Especially if you choose a reliable contractor like TechnoPave. You could always opt for another contractor but quality workmanship isn’t guaranteed and neither is excellent customer service.

Why Interlocking Pavers Are the Best Material for Your Driveway

Your driveway takes a lot of punishment during each season. Not only does it have to carry large amounts of weight – yes your double cab weighs at least 7 000 kg – it also has to endure the elements of mother nature. Which is why you need to make sure you choose the right driveway covering for the job.

Driveways can be created with tar, concrete and interlocking paving to name a few. While every material has its pros and cons, we find interlocking pavers to be the best option all round. This is because it can carry a lot more weight without cracking or breaking. The maintenance related to driveway paving is also minimal since it’s easy to keep it clean and looking fresh.

Should one paver break, you only have to replace that part and not the whole driveway, making it an extremely cost-effective option. As if those are not enough reasons to choose pavers for your driveway, you’ll be more than satisfied with the end result since it will look beautiful and neat.

Hire Paving Specialists Johannesburg for Your Driveway Paving Project

To get the best results from your driveway paving installation, we suggest you hire professionals for the job. Hiring an amateur will only result in a subpar paving job, leaving you to “fix the problem” and costing you more money than necessary.

5 “Facts” About Concrete That Simply Isn’t True

Concrete can be used to build nearly anything. From driveways to complete buildings, it is a robust and versatile material. Concrete plays a significant part in construction, however, there are many myths that are still believed to be true by many people. We are here to give you the facts so you can make an informed decision when choosing your construction material in the future.

  1. Concrete is always grey in colour

Concrete typically starts out as grey but it doesn’t necessarily have to end that way. If you add mineral colours to the concrete mixture while wet and blend it thoroughly, it will give the concrete a different colour when it sets.

  1. Acid can be used to strip sealant from concrete

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Since acid is a chemical, it can cause severe damage to the concrete. Under no circumstances should you use acid to strip concrete from sealant. Instead, use a sealant solvent or stripper.

  1. Cement and concrete are the same things

People use these terms conversely but the truth is that cement is an ingredient in concrete used to create concrete paving.

  1. Concrete isn’t porous

Even the densest type of concrete is permeable. Substances like liquids and vapour can easily penetrate concrete. How long it will take for them to pass through will depend on the density of the concrete.

  1. You can lay concrete in all weather conditions

Concrete, while remarkably durable, won’t fully dry unless poured in the right weather conditions. Extremely hot or freezing conditions may prevent the concrete from setting properly.

That’s five concrete myths busted. If you need more information about concrete paving or require an obligation free quote, get in touch with Techno Pave paving specialists in Johannesburg today. Our friendly team is ready to help!

4 Reasons Why You Need Bollards for Your Business

Bollards are short vertical posts that can be permanent or temporary. These sturdy little posts act as a barrier between the vehicles on the road and the worksite or pedestrian area. Below are some reasons why you might want to consider installing bollards on your business premises:

  1. Traffic control

Bollards are both a visual and physical barrier and come in various shapes, colours, sizes and designs. Security bollards protect your property and employees by creating a controlled traffic setting.

  1. Impact Protection

Barriers around the perimeter will protect your property from unwanted clutter and hassle. While other options like concrete blocks or fences are valid, bollards allow for clear pedestrian flow while restricting vehicle access.

  1. Security

In recent years vehicle ram-raids have become more popular and an increased concern for store owners. Perpetrators crash a vehicle into a building to gain access. This threatens the safety of both customers and employees and can cause significant damage. Installing bollards will discourage this type of behaviour, reducing the security risk.

  1. Parking regulating

Bollards for parking are often overlooked but it can be a costly mistake if you don’t install them. You can improve security and reduce the likelihood of accidents in your parking lot by strategically installing bollards.

The most common places to install parking bollards include:

Handicapped Parking

Every parking lot has to include special reserved parking for handicapped people. To avoid misuse, bollards should be put in place to ensure availability.

Reserved Parking

For a more temporary solution, you can invest in removable parking bollards. These are designed to offer a visual deterrent more than accident protection.

Restricted and Expanding Parking Spaces

Temporarily removable bollards are also great for expanding and restricted parking spaces. When the need arises to accommodate a large crowd for a special event, bollards can be used to section parking off.

If you’re in the market for bollards, then Techno Pave is the company to contact. With nearly two decades of experience in the building and construction industry, you can rest assured we know our business inside out. Get in touch for a free quote today!

Is Palisade Fencing Really the Safest Option for Your Property?

People install fences on their property for various reasons such as privacy, aesthetics and security. While aesthetics are important, it should never be the primary reason for your fence type since it might not do as good of a job in keeping your home safe.

It’s important to consider the purpose of the fence before you make your final decision on which type to install. Additionally, you should take into account the amount you’re able to spend to get the job done.

Because there are so many fencing options, it can be quite tricky to find the best fence. Which is why you should consider hiring a professional fencing company.

If security is your primary concern, you’ll want a fence that can’t be climbed over or bypassed or provide hiding space for intruders. Horizontal bars can give intruders a way to move up fencing and should be avoided as far as possible. It’s also important to check with your homeowners’ association whether they have specific guidelines or rules regarding your fencing.

Benefits of Palisade Fencing

Palisade fencing is a simple yet aesthetically pleasing fence type. Because they are barred, they will enable you to see outside your property but maintain safety and security.

Palisade fencing requires little maintenance so you don’t have to worry about the upkeep of your fence.

This type of fence offers incredible strength and durability so you can rest assured and know that your family is protected from criminals. It is difficult to climb over and equally difficult to cut or damage making it a secure barrier.

Palisade fencing come in various heights according to your needs and the purpose of the fence. If it’s purely for security purposes, the height of the palisade fencing can be increased to deter intruders.

As you can see, palisade fencing has many benefits and is an excellent choice for home and business security, while adding value to your property.

Invest in Your Home by Building a Carport

If you’ve ever carried groceries out of your car in the rain or found sun spots on your brand new car, you’ll know the value of having a carport for your car. A carport doesn’t have to take away from the aesthetics of your home. In fact,  Techno Pave can design a carport that will provide you with the needed shelter without taking away from the style and beauty of your home.

Below are three reasons why a carport is a great investment for your home.

Protection

Cars are not cheap! Cars with faded interior fabric or sunspots on the exterior will lower the value of the car. But the sun isn’t the only culprit. Bird droppings can cause serious damage to your vehicle’s paintwork. To protect your car from birds, the sun and other elements like hail, you might want to consider investing in a carport.

Convenience

A carport will make it much easier to unload the groceries from the car, especially during rain or hail storms. No more soaked groceries, clothes or hair. Additionally, the shade offered by your carport will lead to a cooler car during hot summer months. A carport ultimately adds to the comfort of our lifestyle.

Value

While cars are expensive, houses are even more so. Which is why it’s important that any addition to your property should add to the value and aesthetics. Make sure the contractor you hire will design a high-quality carport that will be a financial asset and draw potential buyers should you sell your home in the future.

When investing in your home, it’s crucial to hire a reliable and trustworthy contractor with plenty of experience. This will ensure you get the best value for money. Techno Pave meets all of the criteria mentioned above including affordability, making them a prefered supplier in Johannesburg.
