PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Kirriemuir UK (Dialling code	01575)

If your new block paved drive is is going to replace a pre-existing driveway, it will be necessary to lift, remove and recycle the old construction materials. It may be necessary to do further excavations to ensure that building regulations concerning the damp proof course (DPC) of your home are upheld. The rules require that new driveways are installed 2 brick courses or 150mm below the existing damp proof course of your structure.

If your new block pave driveway in Kirriemuir is being installed over grass or bare earth, approximately nine inches (230mm) of soil will need to be excavated and disposed of. This enables a decent sub-base and sharp sand layer to be established before any actual block pavers are installed.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

The sub-base is created from a sharp sand topped layer of Type 1 crushed stones and gravel. The installation of a sound and stable sub-base is vital to ensure the driveway won't develop dips where water can pool and cause you problems. The Type 1 is a crushed granular aggregate, typically composed of limestone or granite which is firmly packed down to create a durable, solid and sturdy surface for your drive, footpath or terrace in Kirriemuir.

Any drainage issues will be sorted out during this phase of the installation. To encourage excess water to drain off easily, a fall or slope, will be developed, if one isn't already present in the natural lay of the land. Either purpose built drainage channels and grates can be inserted in between your dwelling and the drive for channelling away this water, or it can simply be redirected away from the house by the incline.

Sharp sand is shovelled onto the compacted 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

Any driveway in Kirriemuir with a surface area of over 5M², must have a provision for the water to drain off to a suitable permeable area close by. If this can't be observed you'll have to apply for planning permission from the local council to install your drive. You are not permitted to redirect excess water from a driveway into the main drainage system, since it can increase the risk of localised flooding in the area.

Path Block Paving Near Kirriemuir Scotland

Any professional block paving installer in Kirriemuir will determine your requirements for drainage and take the necessary measures to keep your new driveway within the law, as an integral part of the driveway installation process. This might require built-in drainage channels, a SUDS compliant permeable driveway and maybe the excavation of a dedicated soak-away somewhere on your land.

If your property is inside the defined limits of a conservation area, further drainage and design aspects may need to be looked into. With their experience and knowledge, an established block paving installation contractor should be able to skillfully guide you through this process, and reach a satisfactory solution.

COLOUR, QUANTITY AND STYLE OF PAVERS

To suit any design and layout of driveway you want, pavers come in a range of different colours, sizes and shapes. From the regular and ubiquitous, straight edged, rectangular or square paving blocks, to the fancier, s-shape, circular, curved and diamond patterns, there'll surely be a style which matches your needs. Block paving can be colour matched to suit the brickwork of your home, or be in total contrast to create a striking feature.

Tumbled Block Paving Kirriemuir (DD8)

Traditional style block paving, generally known as tumble or tumbled pavers, are available for older properties in Kirriemuir, to create a more seamless and sympathetic entrance to your house. These are pre-faded and have a character and rustic appearance. There's also contemporary block paving for a more modern look, which when suitably sealed, create a high-gloss finish.

The design of your drive may be a simple square or oblong shape, or maybe you have hard landscaping features which it will need to weave around. Block paving can be laid in several patterns to achieve different effects; Basketweave, Stretcher Bond and Herringbone are three common design patterns. No matter what pattern or design you choose, a skilled block paving contractor in Kirriemuir will build you an exceptional looking drive that will be the envy of your neighbours.

You must also look at installing a block paving edging. To find out about the pros and cons of raised kerb stones, different shapes or colours, or if your driveway is flanked by walls, whether it actually needs edging at all, you can talk to your chosen contractor.

DISPOSAL OF WASTE MATERIALS

Rates for the removal of waste materials and the expedient manner of its disposal should all be listed in a block paving installation quote. Obviously, the volume of earth and existing driveway materials that will need to be gotten rid of will be dependent on the overall size of your new driveway and if an existing drive is involved. If it can't be made use of in other areas of your garden, any excess soil will need to be moved by by truck, trailer or in a skip. Eco-friendly disposal at a registered site is a must for any waste soil and old driveway materials.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

Most block paving contractors in Kirriemuir will urge you to seal your new drive after it's been installed, although this is not absolutely essential. Sealing can prolong the lifespan of your block paving driveway, it also slows down fading, reduces the growth of weeds, enhances the colour and protects it from staining. The application of a decent block paving seal is the perfect way to secure the sizeable investment you have made in your brand new driveway.

Block paving driveways should never be sealed straight after installation, since it is vital for the jointing and sand to properly settle for a good while. The suggested waiting time for applying seal to a new driveway is 6 months, and it is always best to use a professional for this type of project because it's hard to rectify any mistakes in this process.

CONCLUSION

Besides adding a useful feature, and increasing the worth of your property, you can truly transform the look of your house with a brand new block paved patio or driveway. It can provide a hard wearing and stable area for safely parking your vehicle, or create a wonderful area where you can relax and enjoy a durable barbecue and seating area in your back garden.
