You will need to think about the size of your block pave drive in Aldenham during the design stage of the process, to make certain it is big enough for your purpose. Of course, you may be restricted by the dimensions of the area that you've got to build it on, however it is best to organise your new drive to be able to easily park and move around your car. It's also a good idea, when possible, to think of building a drive that has enough room for more than one car. This will give you the extra space needed when tradesmen or visitors call, and for further vehicles that may be purchased by your family members later on.

When searching for a qualified contractor to install your new block paved area in Aldenham, always request no less than 3 detailed quotes from different paving companies. Where possible, you can ask friends and neighbours who've had a block paved driveway installed, for their advice and recommendations.

Any Aldenham block paving company worth their salt will be delighted to provide you with a free and in depth quotation for the project in hand. Any chancers who just show up at your front door declaring they "just happen to be working locally on another job", should be avoided. They could of course be genuine (but are unlikely to be), and there are hundreds of scary stories of people being left out of pocket when a driveway is not successfully completed, or getting second-rate work done.

Items that to be mentioned in any quote should include:

  • Preparation (excavation) of the area to be paved
  • Sub-base installation

  • Colour, design and quantity of block pavers
  • Waste disposal
  • Other considerations

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Aldenham UK (01923)

If you've got a pre-existing drive, this material will need to be removed and disposed of in the correct manner. It might be necessary to undertake more extensive excavations to make certain that building regulations relating to the DPC (damp proof course) of your home are complied with. Two brick courses or 150mm below your property's current damp proof course, is the regulation for new driveways in Aldenham.

About 9 inches (230mm) of soil will need to be excavated and removed if your new block pave driveway in Aldenham is being laid on top of bare earth or grass. This will allow for the installation of a good sub-base and sharp sand stratum, before your block paving is laid.

SUB-BASE INSTALLATION

The sub-base is created from a sharp sand topped layer of Type 1 crushed material. To make certain that the driveway will not move or develop dips and low lying spots where pools can form, a solid sub-base is vital. Firmly packed down to create a sturdy, durable and firm surface for your driveway, patio or path in Aldenham, Type 1 is a crushed aggregate mixture, usually made from limestone or granite.

During this phase of the installation process any drainage issues will be sorted out. If this isn't already inherent in the natural lay of the land, a gradient or fall will be introduced, to enable the water to drain away. This will be directed either away from your property or into drainage grates that are inserted between your home and the driveway.

As soon as the type 1 sub-base has been compacted down, sharp sand is added and levelled off to create a decent base for arranging the paving blocks.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

Every driveway in Aldenham which has a surface area in excess of 5M², must include a provision for the excess water to run to a permeable area close by. If this cannot be observed you will need to get planning permission from the local council for the installation. You aren't permitted to redirect water run-off from a driveway into the drainage system, because it can add to the risk of flooding the local area.

To make sure that your new driveway adheres to the regulations, an established Aldenham block paving specialist will determine your requirements for drainage as an integral part of the driveway installation process and take any necessary action. So as to accomplish this they may need to excavate a dedicated soak-away, add built-in drainage channels/grates or install a SUDS compliant permeable driveway .

Further drainage and design elements might need to be considered if your home is within the defined limits of a conservation area. To get guidance and advice through this procedure, you must seek the help of a trustworthy block paving installer in Aldenham.

COLOUR, DESIGN AND AMOUNT OF PAVERS

To suit any design and pattern of drive you have in mind, block pavers come in a range of colours, shapes and sizes. With anything from the common straight sided, square or oblong pavers, to the more fancy, diamond, s-shape, curved and circular variations, you ought to be able to find the ideal style. Paver colours can be matched to suit the brickwork of your property, or be in total contrast to create a striking feature.

Tumbled Block Paving Aldenham (WD25)

Older properties in Aldenham might be better suited to the traditional style block pavers, generally known as tumbled or tumble pavers, which produce a more seamless and sympathetic result. These are pre-faded during manufacture and have a rustic and authentic appearance. You can also purchase contemporary pavers if you want to concoct a more modern look, and a high-gloss finish is even possible with the application of a suitable sealant.

Your new block paving driveway in Aldenham could be designed as a straightforward square or rectangular shape, or it could snake its way around other hard landscaping features of your garden. Three of the most widespread block paver designs are Stretcher Bond, Basketweave and Herringbone, although the laying of block paving can be done in a number of patterns to achieve different effects. Whatever design or pattern you use, a good block paving contractor in Aldenham will be able to build you a fabulous looking drive that will turn a few heads.

A block paving edging should also be something to consider. You can discuss with your chosen installer the pros and cons of raised kerb stones, different colours or shapes, or when your driveway is flanked by walls, whether it actually needs to be edged at all.

DISPOSAL OF WASTE

When you're given a quotation for block paving installation, an allowance for the removal of waste and soil and its correct method of disposal should all be included. The dimensions of your new drive will influence the amount of existing driveway materials and earth that must be carted away. If it cannot be utilised on other sections of your garden, any excavated topsoil will have to be shifted by truck, trailer or in a skip. Responsible disposal at a registered site is essential for any waste soil and related materials.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Nearly all block paving installers in Aldenham will encourage you to seal your new driveway after it has been installed, although this is not really essential. You can lengthen the lifespan of your block paved driveway by sealing it, and in addition the sealer prevents fading, protects it from staining, enhances the colour and lowers the risk of weed growth. The applying of an appropriate block paving sealer is the ideal way to secure the substantial investment you've made in your new drive.

Sealers should never be put on a newly installed driveway as sand and joints need to properly settle over time. It is highly advised to use a specialist for the sealant application, as mistakes are hard to fix, and it is also recommended that you wait at least six months before doing it.

CONCLUSION

A block paving patio or drive can totally transform the look of your home in Aldenham. It can provide a hard wearing and stable area for securely parking your vehicle, or create a pleasant area where you can relax and enjoy a sturdy seating and barbecue area in your back garden.
