When designing and planning your new block paving driveway in Higham Ferrers it's vital to think ahead when you are considering how big it should be. You will need to be able to manoeuvre and easily park your vehicle, and it is better to design your drive around these requirements, although the size of the area that you've got to build on may well determine this. If it's at all possible in your circumstances, it is also a wise idea to build a drive that has room for more than just your own vehicle. This permits visitors to park their vehicles or maybe a teenager's first car when they pass their driving test.

When attempting to find a skilled contractor to lay your new block paving in Higham Ferrers, always request no less than 3 fully itemised quotes from different companies. You could ask for recommendations and advice from friends and family members, if any of them have had a block paving driveway installed recently.

Any Higham Ferrers block paving company worthy of the name will be delighted to provide you with a free and comprehensive quotation for the proposed project. It's not worth the risk of employing people who just turn up at your front door with remarks like "we are working down the street on another job, do you need..?" There are far too many scary stories of homeowners having poor work, or being ashamed and out of pocket when a drive is not properly finished, by these sorts of scumbags.

Things that you can count on seeing itemised on any satisfactory quote may be:

  • Preparation groundwork (excavations)
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage requirements
  • Design, colour and quantity of block pavers
  • Waste disposal arrangements
  • Other things to consider

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Higham Ferrers UK (01933)

If you already have a drive, the associated construction materials and waste will need to be lifted, removed and disposed of in an ethical and responsible way. It could be required to undertake additional excavations to ensure that building regulations relating to your property's damp proof course are adhered to. New installations of driveways should be 2 brick courses below the current damp proof course.

Higham Ferrers block paved driveways being laid on bare earth or grass, will need approximately 9" (230mm) of soil to be excavated and removed from the site. This enables a good sub-base and sharp sand layer to be created before your block paving is installed.

SUB-BASE INSTALLATION

The sub-base is created from a sharp sand covered layer of MOT Type 1 crushed gravel and stones. A solid sub-base makes certain that your driveway will not move or develop low lying spots where water can pool. Generally comprising limestone or granite which is firmly packed down to create a solid, durable and strong surface for your footpath, terrace or drive in Higham Ferrers, Type 1 is a kind of crushed granular aggregate.

Any issues with drainage will be taken care of during this stage of the installation process. To let the water to drain away easily, a slope or fall, will be introduced, if not already inherent in the natural lay of the land. This can be directed either away from your house or into drainage channels that are installed in between your drive and your dwelling.

Sharp sand is shovelled onto the firmly compacted Type 1 sub-base and levelled out to form a base for the block pavers to be laid into.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

Any driveway in Higham Ferrers with an area of more than five square metres, must include a provision for the excess water to run off to a permeable area close by. If this can't be observed you'll have to get planning permission from the local council to install your drive. So as to avert local flooding, any excess water from your driveway is not allowed to be redirected into the main drainage system.

To keep your new driveway within the legislation, a reliable Higham Ferrers block paving installation specialist will investigate your drainage needs as part of the installation process and take any action that is necessary. This might require the installation of built-in drainage channels, a completely permeable driveway and perhaps the digging of a soakway somewhere on your land.

Homes that are within a designated conservation area will require added consideration with regards to design and drainage features. A reliable block paving installation company will have the knowhow and experience to be able to guide you through this tricky process.

QUANTITY, COLOUR AND DESIGN OF PAVERS

There are a variety of different sizes, colours and shapes of block paving, and whatever design and pattern of drive you want, you should have no trouble finding a product that works. From the regular and widespread, straight sided, rectangular or square pavers, to the more flamboyant, circular, s-shape, diamond and curved patterns, there will surely be a style that matches your needs. You can match your driveway colours with the brickwork of your house, or create an attractive feature with a contrasting colour.

Tumbled Block Paving Higham Ferrers (NN10)

To create a more sympathetic and seamless entryway to older homes in Higham Ferrers, you might favour purchasing the traditional style of block pavers, often called tumbled or tumble pavers. These block pavers have been pre-faded to give the appearance of being old and time-worn. For a that more modern look, you can also purchase contemporary pavers, which can even provide you with a high-gloss finish when suitably sealed.

The layout of your new block paved drive in Higham Ferrers may be a straightforward oblong or square shape, or perhaps you have existing features that it will have to weave around. The three most commonplace block paver designs are Stretcher Bond, Herringbone and Basketweave, although block paving can be laid in a number of patterns for various effects. No matter what design and pattern you choose, a reputable block paving company in Higham Ferrers will be able to build you a wonderful looking drive that will make your neighbours envious.

Installing an edging to your block paved drive should also be considered. Your chosen block paving installer will be glad to talk about the finer details of raised edging, contrasting colours and shapes, or if your driveway even needs to be edged.

WASTE DISPOSAL

When you get a estimate for block paving installation, the fees for the removal of waste and soil and its expedient method of disposal should all be listed. Needless to say, the quantity of existing driveway materials and soil that must be disposed of will be dependent on the overall size of your new driveway and whether or not an existing drive is involved. Any excess topsoil will have to be hauled away by truck if it cannot be used in other parts of your garden. Eco-friendly disposal at a registered site is a must for any excavated earth and associated materials.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Nearly all block paving installers in Higham Ferrers will advise you to seal your new driveway after it has been installed, although this is not at all essential. You will lengthen the life of your block paved driveway by sealing it, and in addition the sealer enhances the colour, protects it from staining, lowers the risk of algae growth and slows down fading. If you would like to secure the investment that you've made in your brand new block paved drive, coating it with a quality sealer it is a good way to accomplish it.

Because the sand and joints need to properly settle for a while, sealers should never be put on to a recently installed block paving driveway. It's highly advisable to use a professional for the application of sealer, since mistakes are tricky to rectify, and it is recommended that you wait no less than 6 months before doing it.

CONCLUSION

You can truly transform the look of your home in Higham Ferrers, with a block paved patio or drive. It can provide a hard wearing and stable area for safely parking your vehicle, or create a splendid area to enjoy a sturdy seating and barbeque area in your back garden.
