The Types of Driveways We Install

Our Block Paving and Resin Bound Driveway Service Explained

Block Paving Install

Survey

We will start off by carrying out a site visit where we can introduce ourselves, understand exactly what work it is you require and give you any advice we can in relation to your resin driveway / block paving project. We will take all the measurements we require and images of the install area so we can provide you with a free no obligation professional quotation. This will be emailed to you within 48 hours but will usually be with you the same day.

Installation

Once agreement has been reached we will arrange a date and time for us to start the install. In most cases we will start with digging out the existing drive and levelling (With a Resin Bound installation this might not be required as we can usually overlay onto concrete or tarmac drives).  This will usually involve the use of a mini digger and is normally completed within one day with all the debris taken away and environmentally disposed of.

Levels will then be set and a geotextile membrane installed on top of the subsoil to the total area of your driveway. This helps prevent the mixing of the sub soil or clay with the hardcore that will be installed but will still allow water to flow freely.

At this stage MOT type-1 hardcore is laid to the total area of your new driveway on top of the geotextile membrane to a minimum depth of 150mm. This is then whackered down numerous times in different directions to give a good solid base.

Edging restraints (usually blocks) are then installed to contain the block paving or resin installation.

At this stage if the driveway is to be finished with Resin Bound a bitumen or concrete base will be installed on top of the hardcore leaving between 18-20mm for the final resin install which is then hand trowelled once the concrete has cured or the bitumen oxidized.

With block paving drainage will need installing and once complete the driveway area will be covered with course grit sand, whackered down and screeded.

Blocks are then laid and the area is brushed with Kiln dried sand until all joints are full to the top. The area is then whackered once again and any surplus kiln dried sand is now removed.

All waste material will be taken away ensuring your driveway is left nice and tidy.

We will also advise you on the best way to maintain the condition of your drive including driveway sealing.

Resin Bound Garden Feature Path

Great Workmanship

We wanted to get rid of a small graveled path which was a muddy mess, and came across bonded resin as an alternative. Next job was to find someone who could do a great job and we found that with Shaun and Paul who have produced a fantastic looking path that is easy to keep clean. Would have no hesitation in recommending them. Friendly people, great workmanship, efficient and a reasonable price considering the product.

Thank you so much!
