It's imperative that you think carefully about how big to build your block pave driveway in Crewkerne, and to prepare an exact design of the planned area. You'll need to be able to safely park and move your vehicle, and it is advisable to plan your driveway around these requirements, even though the size of the land area you have to build it on will have a bearing on this. If you are able to put in a driveway that can accommodate at least one more car than your own, that's also a wise idea. This provides extra space for visitor's vehicles and also for teenager's vehicles when they eventually get through their test and start driving.

Any Crewkerne block paving company worth their salt will be very happy to provide you with a completely free and comprehensive quote for the project in hand. Any chancers who simply rock up at your front door stating they "just happen to be working locally on another job", should be avoided at all costs. They could of course be legit (highly unlikely), and there are far too many horror stories of property owners being embarrassed and out of pocket when the promised drive isn't successfully completed, or having shoddy work carried out.

Included in any decent quote would be items like:

  • Preparation groundwork (excavations)
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage prerequisites
  • Colour, style and quantity of block pavers
  • Disposal of waste
  • Other issues to consider

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Crewkerne UK (01460)

If your new block paving dive is replacing an existing driveway, it will be necessary to lift, remove and recycle the old materials. It could be necessary to undertake additional excavations to make sure that building regulations pertaining to the damp proof course (DPC) of your property are complied with. The rules demand that new driveway installations at least two brick courses or 6 inches below the existing damp proof course of your dwelling.

Crewkerne block paved driveways that are being laid over bare earth or grass, will need around 230mm (nine inches) of soil to be excavated and removed from the site. This ensures that before any actual block pavers are laid, a decent sub-base and sharp sand layer can be established.

SUB-BASE INSTALLATION

The sub-base is made out of a sharp sand covered layer of Type 1 crushed gravel and stones. A sturdy sub-base makes sure that your drive will not shift or develop dips where pools can form. Firmly packed down to create a durable, strong and firm surface for your footpath, drive or patio in Crewkerne, MOT Type 1 is a crushed aggregate mixture, typically comprising limestone or granite.

During this stage of the installation drainage issues will be addressed. To enable the water to drain off easily, an incline or fall, will be developed, if one is not already inherent in the lay of the land. You can either redirect this water away from your home, or steer it into purpose built drainage grates inserted in between your property and the driveway.

Sharp sand is added above the packed down sub-base Type 1 aggregate and levelled out to form a base for the pavers to be laid into.

DRAINAGE AND WATER RUN-OFF REQUIREMENTS

Surface water must be drained away to a permeable area on any driveways over five square metres in Crewkerne. If your drive cannot abide by this proviso, planning permission you'll need to get planning permission from your local council. You aren't permitted to divert excess water from a driveway into the main drainage system, because it can increase the risk of local flooding in the area.

To ensure your new driveway adheres to the regulations, a reliable Crewkerne block paving installation specialist will consider your requirements for drainage as part of the drive installation process and take any necessary action.

If your property is within a declared conservation area, further design and drainage elements might need to be evaluated. A dependable block paving installation company will have the experience and knowledge to guide you through this process.

COLOUR, STYLE AND QUANTITY OF PAVERS

There are an array of different sizes, colours and shapes of block paving, and no matter what design and layout of driveway you have in mind, you should have no trouble finding a suitable solution. From the regular and widely available, straight edged, square or rectangular blocks, to the more decorative, circular, diamond, curved and s-shape patterns, there will be a style that meets your needs. You can create a striking feature with a completely different colour, or pick one which pretty much matches the brickwork of your property.

Tumbled Block Paving Crewkerne (TA18)

To create a more sympathetic and seamless entrance for older properties in Crewkerne, you might favour purchasing the traditional style of pavers, often known as tumbled pavers. These are pre-faded during manufacture and have a reclaimed and authentic appearance. You can also obtain contemporary block pavers if you're aiming to concoct a more modern feel, and these can even have a high-gloss finish with the application of a suitable sealer.

The layout of your driveway could be a basic square or oblong shape, or maybe you've got hard landscaping features which it must weave around.

The installation of some block paving edging is also something to look into. To find out the pros and cons of raised kerb stones, different shapes and colours, or if your driveway is bounded by walls, whether it in fact needs to be edged at all, you can chat with your chosen contractor.

THE DISPOSAL OF WASTE

Fees for the removal of waste and soil and its correct disposal should all be contained in any block paving installation estimate. The overall size of your new drive will dictate the quantity of soil and existing driveway materials that will need to be gotten rid of. Any excess topsoil will need to be carted away by truck if it cannot be utilised on other parts of your garden. Soil and other related materials that are excavated must be disposed of in a sound, responsible fashion at a registered site.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

You may be urged to put a coat of sealant on the block paving after installation, although this isn't essential for your new driveway in Crewkerne. Sealing can help to prolong the lifespan of your block paved drive, it also inhibits the growth of weeds, keeps it from staining, stops fading and brings out the true colour. A decent sealant is a great way to secure the considerable investment that you have made in your block paved drive.

Block paved driveways should never be sealed right after installation, since it is essential for the sand and jointing to settle properly for a good while. The advised waiting time for applying seal to a new drive is 6 mths, and it is always wise to use a professional for this type of work as it's difficult to put right any mistakes that are made in this process.

CONCLUSION
