It is important to carefully consider how large to build your block pave driveway in Borrowash, and to prepare an exact design of the intended area. You will want to be able to move around and easily park your car, and it is better to plan your new drive around these prerequisites, although the dimensions of the area you have to build it on will have an impact on this. It's also a great idea, when possible, to think of putting in a driveway that has enough room for one more car than you own. This provides enough space for visitor's cars and also for older children's cars when they get through their test and start driving.

When you're attempting to find a professional block paver in Borrowash, always try to get no less than three quotations from different firms in the area. You can ask for recommendations and advice from friends and family members, if any of them have had a block paved drive installed recently.

Any self-respecting Borrowash firm will offer you a free and detailed quotation for the full project. Any people who just rock up at your front door saying they "just happen to be working locally on another project", should be avoided. There are far too many horror stories of people having shoddy work, or being embarrassed and out of pocket when the promised drive isn't finished, by these sorts of rogues.

Items that to be factored in any quote should include:

  • Preparation (excavation) of the area to be paved
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage prerequisites
  • Colour, design and amount of block pavers
  • Disposal of waste
  • Other factors to consider

If you've got a pre-existing drive, these materials will have to be removed and disposed of in the proper manner. Further excavations will often be required to make certain that your new block pave drive complies with building regulations in relation to the damp proof course of your home. Two brick courses below your existing damp proof course, is the regulation for new driveway installations in Borrowash.

If your new block paved driveway in Borrowash is being installed over grass or bare earth, around 230mm (9 inches) of soil will need to be excavated and removed. This means that before your block pavers are laid, a proper sub-base and sharp sand stratum can be created.


The sub-base is composed of a layer of MOT Type 1 crushed gravel and stones covered with sharp sand. A sturdy sub-base ensures that the driveway doesn't shift or develop dips and low lying spots where water can pool. Typically comprising limestone or granite which is compacted to create a durable, sturdy and firm surface for your patio area, path or drive in Borrowash, MOT Type 1 is a form of crushed aggregate mixture.

Any drainage issues will be taken care of during this stage of the installation process. A fall or slope, will be developed, if one isn't already present in the natural lay of the land, to encourage excess water to run-off easily. You can either redirect this water away from your home, or direct it into purpose built drainage channels that are installed in between the drive and your property.

The base on which the pavers are laid is created by the addition of sharp sand to the compacted sub-base type 1 aggregate.


All driveways in Borrowash over 5m2 must allow surface water to run off to a permeable area. If your drive can't observe this precondition, planning permission you will have no alternative but to get planning permission from your local authorities.

Most block paving contractors in Borrowash will advise you to seal your new drive after it's been installed, although this isn't really essential.

The applying of an appropriate paving sealant is a good way to secure the substantial investment you've made in your driveway.

Because the sand and jointing needs to settle properly for some time, sealants should not be put on a newly installed block paving driveway. It is recommended to wait no less than 6 months before applying sealer to a new drive, and it is advisable to use a specialist for the application as mistakes are difficult to rectify.


Besides gaining a useful feature, and increasing the worth of your building, you can transform the appearance of your home with a new block paving patio or driveway.
