The process of constructing a quality driveway
1. A thorough survey
A detailed inspection of the proposed site of the works is necessary not just to calaculate the size of the project but to assess the nature of the ground, drainage and to consider which materials will be most visually appropriate.
2. Discussion with client
As well as making our recommendations for the most suitable materials - aesthetically as well as structurally - we want to understand your thoughts and requirements.
3. Advice on most suitable materials
Today, more than ever, there is a huge choice of products and materials. First of all we categorize them into the most suitable; certain products are suitable for the wear and load-bearing requirements of vehicular traffic; others are morse suited to paths, patios and leisure areas.
4. Cost and value
You can be sure, whatever the project, we will be the most cost-effective when quality of workmanship and material is taken into consideration. Unfortunately, the paving and tarmacadam business does attract comboys - here today and gone tomorrow - who make no effort to carryout the essential ground preparation work, make provision for adequate drainage or supply adequate quality materials.
You expect a new driveway or patio to last a lifetime - so engage a contractor that will ensure that it does.
We deploy the proper machinery and tools; we employ only experienced and diligent operatives. We rely on word-of-mouth recommendations for future business. Our reputation is one of our greatest assets. You can be assured that the job will be carried through diligently and with the required expertise.
