A new driveway will transform the appearance of your home
We are experts in designing and constructing new driveways using a variety of block or slab paving. From simple straight lines to complex curves and steps, with a variety of patterns, colours and materials.
For block paving driveways:
The area is fully excavated to a minimum of 230mm below the finished level, taking into account the Damp Proof Course.
A grab lorry with full operating licence and appropriate waste disposal license is used to dispose of waste material.
Sub base is levelled and compacted.
Type 1 Roadstone/MOT is laid, 130mm deep, (for environmental reasons we support the use of recycled aggregates). The Type 1 Roadstone is the thoroughly compacted using a plate compactor.
At this stage any necessary drainage is installed.
All outer blocks/kerbs are then laid on a lean mix concrete bed and haunched behind.
A 40mm compacted bed of sharp sand is then laid.
Inner blocks/kerbs are then laid over the compacted and levelled sand, taking into consideration falls for drainage and/or water soak away.
All angles and cuts are made using a professional block splitter.
After the blocks are installed the joints are swept in with kiln dried sand and compacted a final time.
