  • Full third party, public and employers liability insurance.

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.
