Fantastic service from quote to finish! Our new decking is just beautiful and while Matthew was with us we asked him to do some other jobs which were done with the same care and high standard as the decking. When the jobs were finished the whole area was left clean and tidy. Would highly recommend and he will definitely be our first port of call for any future jobs.

Fantastic job done by Joe, Nigel and the team last year. I am over the moon with my new, easy to look after garden!

I used your company to fit five windows in September 2017. After several months some sealant outside of the window has already cracked so the wind can blow in straightforward. After checking I noticed there was no expanding form in the bottom side of the window. I tried to contact this company to make a complaint but no response. I have another project which includes six windows that are needed to be replaced but decided to go for another company.

David was quick to get in touch and provided an accurate quote from seeing photos. He and his team arrived bright and early and completed the job to a great standard and he took the time to fix an unforseen issue that arose due to the new concrete posts being slightly thinner than the old timber ones (leaving a small gap). Will definitely use him again. Thanks.

Driveway pavers - what you need to know

When a driveway specialist gets started, they’ll first need to make sure they know where all service pipes and cables are – water, gas, electricity – so that nothing is damaged or disturbed during the work.

What a driveway paver can help with

  • Paving your driveway.
  • Gaining off-street parking, or extra parking spaces.
  • Escaping bureaucratic council parking schemes.
  • Reducing garden maintenance tasks by paving over your front garden.

Next up is to dig out the area where the driveway will be, as well as to lay down the edges so that, once complete, everything will stay exactly where it is.

Drainage needs to be considered at this stage too, so there’s no water build-up that would affect your home, other properties, or that would require planning permission to sort.

At this point a sub-base will be laid – maybe concrete but more likely an aggregate substance. This is the foundation of your drive and will keep everything level.

A layer of sand is next, which will be compacted and flattened to create a level bed for the bricks or paving stones being used for the drive.

The bricks are then laid tightly across the sand before being flattened again.

Lastly, another layer of fine sand is poured across the bricks to fill all the joints and gaps between the bricks. This is all flattened for a final time to firm up the driveway and bed it all nicely into place.

The qualifications your driveway paver needs

 

Driveway specialists usually gain their experience through courses, apprenticeships or on-the-job training. The key to an excellent driveway is a solid foundation and good workmanship at every stage of laying it. Always check references and ask to speak to previous clients.

Planning permission for driveway paver jobs

If your driveway slants towards your house, you’ll need drainage to keep the water away from soaking into your foundations and brickwork. If your drainage is piped away into sewers you’ll need planning permission, so you should ask your driveway specialist about a soakaway.

Soakaways will be an area within the boundary of your property, where water can safely drain to and soak back into the ground. It’s essentially a hole, dug in an area where it’s safe for water to drain. They then place a membrane for the water to drain to, covering it up completely. It requires no maintenance or access, so you can cover it with whatever you want.

If you stick to that, then you won’t need planning permission for a driveway, but as ever, the planning portal is where you should be looking for all the official advice.

Insurance for driveway paver work

Your driveway paver should have public liability insurance which will protect you and your property should any damage occur.

Questions you should ask a driveway paver

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading for?
  • Can they give you up to 3 references of recent work they’ve completed?
  • Will they give a guarantee/warranty for the work and how long does it last?
  • Will they source all materials and equipment?
  • Will they be using a sub-base, and what material will it be?
