The Professional Technique

The art of laying block paving or paving slabs is in the preparation of the surface that is to be paved. After an initial free consultation and quote we will guide you in your choice of pavior/slab and pattern and agree a timescale and start date to commence your project.

Block Paving:
To create a new driveway using a 60mm block paviour’s in a colour of your choice. We excavate the new driveway to a minimum depth of 200mm under the new finished level and remove any obstructive material before building back up with class one mot which is compacted at a minimum depth of 100 mm after compaction to eliminate any differential settlement or rutting in the future, we will then compact and screed sharp sand to 25mm -50mm and then lay the block paviours in a 45 degree herringbone bond design pattern and cut in around the perimeter/soldier course, we finish with jointing sand and consolidate the whole area with a compacter plate. The driveway can then be trafficked immediately. Paving will be built back up under the 2 blue bricks under the damp course as in accordance with building regulations Part C, Section 4.4 giving 150mm under the dpc to the paving. New kerb edgers will be installed at the entrance of the drive to retain it independently.

Paving Slabs:
All paving will be laid onto a strong solid mortar bed (not mortar spotted method as incorrect installation) so that it will never move or suffer from any penetrating weed growth, all pointing joints will be either solid mortar pointed or a two part epoxy resin pointing compound. Paving will be built back up under the 2 blue bricks under the damp course as in accordance with building regulations Part C, Section 4.4 giving around 150mm under the dpc to the paving.
