We follow an approved paving installation routine when we install a driveway for block paving:
The original driveway will be removed and any custom tailoring to the design of it and shape of it, including extending it, will be done during this procedure.
We will install a new base once we have removed the old driveway area. Normally the depth of the excavation once the driveway has been removed should be around 10 inches.
A new base of crushed permeable stone will be installed which we will machine roll with a 10 tonne roller to ensure its compacted solid. A 6 inch base is normally the recommend minimum to ensure no subsidence and adequate drainage.
Drainage for your driveway will be taken into consideration to ensure that if we cannot get the surface water clear, we will install drainage on your driveway.
Membrane sheeting will be installed at this stage before any sand is applied.
Block paving steps and edgings would normally be initially set into place at this stage with concrete support.
Sand is spread at this stage and set to accurate finished levels for the block paving installation on your driveway
The block paving will be laid at this stage in a block paving pattern suitable for that style of paving.
Borders of the paving are installed and any open edges of paving will be benched in concrete for extra support.
Kiln dried sand or jointing compound depending on the type of paving will be spread and brushed in to the paving to lock into place before compaction.
Compaction of the paving happens at the end with a heavy duty machine wacker to ensure your new paving is locked firmly into place.
