Our client had an area out the front of their new-build property that they had excavated and wanted to use for extended parking.
Work we carried out
As the area was already excavated we started by having to hardcore the area with MOT Type-1 hardcore and whacker down to make sure the base is solid and not going to move anywhere. (This is one of the main reasons you see block paving sunk in places. Proper type-1 hardcore hasn’t been used, not enough or it hasn’t been compacted properly.)
Once the base is installed correctly, edging kerbs were installed and the base topped with bitumen.
Once cured the drive was trowelled with the customers choice of Daltex Red aggregate bound in UV resistant resin for vehicular traffic.
