Our lovely customers had an old concrete driveway which had seen better days. The levels were somewhat all over the place too with a big drop from the garage area to the front door which they were hoping we could improve.
Work we carried out
We decided that a large proportion of the concrete driveway could be used for the install base but the centre (which was gravelled) and the front needed to be excavated to make solid and to give us our installation levels and improve the levels for the customer.
Once we had our levels we installed new charcoal block edgings and concreted where required to give a strong base.
After the concrete had enough time to cure we installed a 3 to 1 mixture of Daltex Silver and Daltex Black aggregate bound in a UV Resistant Resin.
All our installations both Resin and Block Paving are installed using MOT type 1 hard-core and whacker plated numerous times to give the strongest base possible. This is the difference between doing a job properly to a high standard or cutting corners and getting half a job.
