Block Paving Balderton Nottinghamshire (NG24)

When planning and designing your new block paved drive in Balderton it's vital to think ahead when you are considering just how large it should be. You'll need to be able to manoeuvre and safely park your vehicle, and it is better to organise your drive around these specifications, even though the dimensions of the garden area that you've got to build it on will have a bearing on this. If you are able to install a driveway that has enough room for more than just one car, that's also a good idea. This will give you the additional space required when tradesmen or visitors call, and for additional cars that could be owned by your household in the future.

When hunting for an experienced contractor to lay your new block paving in Balderton, always get at least three fully itemised price quotes from different companies. If any of your friends and family members have had a block pave driveway installed recently, you could also ask them if there is anybody they are willing to recommend.

Any Balderton block paving company worth their salt will be perfectly happy to provide you with a completely free and detailed quotation for the proposed project. Any chancers who simply turn up at your door declaring they "happen to be in the area on another job", should be avoided. They could of course be legitimate (very unlikely), and there are far too many horror stories of homeowners being left out of pocket when the promised driveway isn't properly finished, or having shoddy work done.

Items that to be factored into any quote could include:

  • Preparation (excavation) of the area to be paved
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage requirements
  • Quantity, style and colour of block pavers
  • Disposal of waste materials
  • Other issues to consider

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Balderton UK (01636)

If your new block pave driveway is replacing a pre-existing drive, it will be necessary to first lift, remove and dispose of the old construction materials. It might be required to undertake more excavations to make certain that building regulations concerning your property's DPC (damp proof course) are adhered to. New driveway installations need to be at least 2 brick courses or 150mm below the existing damp proof course.

If your block paved driveway in Balderton is being laid on top of bare earth or grass, roughly 230mm (9") of soil will need to be dug out and disposed of. This is going to allow for the creation of a proper sub-base and sharp sand layer, before any block pavers are laid.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

A layer of Type 1 crushed stones and gravel, topped with sharp sand, is used to create the sub-base. A solid sub-base ensures your drive won't shift or develop low lying spots where pools can form. Compacted to form a solid, durable and sturdy surface for your driveway, terrace or path in Balderton, MOT Type 1 is a crushed granular aggregate, generally composed of granite or limestone.

This is the time where any potential drainage issues will be dealt with. To encourage the water to drain off easily, a fall or slope, will be developed, if this is not already inherent in the lay of the land. This water will either be directed as far away from your house as possible, or into drainage channels, inserted between your home and the drive.

Sharp sand is shovelled onto the packed down sub-base Type 1 aggregate and levelled out to form a base for the paving blocks to be set into.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

All driveways in Balderton more than 5M² must allow excess water to run off to a suitable permeable area. Planning permission from your local council will be necessary, if this stipulation cannot be observed. You're not permitted to divert surface water run-off from a drive into the main drainage system, since it can add to the risk of flooding the local area.

As part of the installation process, a reputable block paving installer in Balderton will calculate your drainage requirements and take action as necessary to make certain that your new driveway abides by the legislation. This may require the installation of built-in drainage channels, a permeable driveway and maybe even the excavation of a dedicated soak-away area on your land.

If your home is inside a designated conservation area, further drainage and design features will probably have to be looked into. To get guidance and advice through this procedure, you should seek the assistance of a reliable block paving installer in Balderton.

COLOUR, STYLE AND QUANTITY OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a lot of different sizes, colours and shapes to suit any design and pattern of driveway you are planning. From the regular and widely available, straight edged, square or oblong pavers, to the more flamboyant, s-shape, curved, diamond and circular patterns, there'll surely be a style that meets your needs. Colours can be matched to complement your home's brickwork, or be contrasting to create a striking feature.

Tumbled Block Paving Balderton (NG24)

To create a more seamless and sympathetic entryway to older properties in Balderton, you may choose to purchase the traditional style of block pavers, often known as tumbled or tumble pavers. Pre-faded and with a time-worn and rustic appearance, tumbled pavers give the impression that they've been there since the house was built. There is also contemporary block paving for a more modern look, which when suitably sealed, provide a high-gloss finish.

Your new block paved driveway in Balderton could be designed as a simple oblong or square shape, or it could weave around other landscaped elements of your garden. Block paving can be laid in many patterns to produce different effects; Herringbone, Stretcher Bond and Basketweave are three common design patterns. Whatever the design and pattern, a skilled block paving installer in Balderton will provide you with a quality driveway that looks amazing.

You should also think about installing a suitable block paving edging. Your preferred installer will be delighted to discuss the finer details of raised edging, contrasting shapes and colours, or if your new drive even needs an edging (as when flanked by walls).

DISPOSAL OF WASTE AND SOIL

Charges for the removal of waste materials and its correct disposal should all be contained in any block paving installation quotation. Obviously, the volume of earth and waste materials that will need to be carted away will be dependent on the overall dimensions of your new driveway and whether or not an existing driveway is involved. Any excess topsoil will have to be shifted by truck if it can't be utilised in other parts of your garden. Earth and other related materials that are excavated throughout the installation must be disposed of in a responsible, eco-friendly fashion at a registered site.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

You might be advised to put a coat of sealant on the block paving after installation, although this isn't essential for your new drive in Balderton. Sealing can help to extend the lifespan of your block paved driveway, it also slows down fading, improves the colour, shields it from staining and inhibits the risk of weed growth. The applying of a decent paving sealant is an excellent way to protect the substantial investment that you've made in your drive.

Since the jointing and sand needs to properly settle for some time, sealers should not be put on a recently installed block paving drive. The recommended waiting time for coating a new driveway with sealer is 6 mths, and it is always better to use a specialist for this sort of work as it's difficult to rectify any mistakes with this process.

CONCLUSION

Besides adding a useful facility, and boosting the value of your building, you can transform the look of your home with a brand new block paved patio or drive. It can provide you with a hard wearing and stable area for securely parking your car, or create a wonderful area to relax and enjoy a durable seating and barbecue area in your back garden.
