When designing and planning your new block paved drive in Cambuslang it is important to think ahead when you are considering just how large it should be. Of course, you may be limited by the dimensions of the area that you've got to build it on, but it is advisable to design your driveway to be able to move around and safely park your vehicle. It is also recommended, if possible, to think of putting in a drive that has the capacity for at least one more vehicle than your own. This will give you the extra space needed when anyone visits your property, and for further vehicles that might be owned by your family members later on.

When you are searching for a reliable block paving installer in Cambuslang, always attempt to obtain at least three fully itemised price quotes from different local firms. You can ask for recommendations and advice from friends or relatives, if any of them have had a block paving driveway installed recently.

Any Cambuslang block paving firm worthy of the name will be perfectly happy to provide you with a free and detailed quote for the proposed project. Try and stay clear of contractors who say that they "happen to be working locally on another job." They could obviously be genuine (but are unlikely to be), and there are far too many horrific stories of householders being embarrassed and out of pocket when a driveway isn't properly finished, or receiving poor quality work done.

Stuff that you should expect to see specified on any satisfactory quote might be:

  • Preparation of the area
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage prerequisites
  • Style, colour and quantity of block pavers
  • Waste disposal arrangements
  • Other things to consider

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE
