GROUNDWORK PREPARATION

Block Pavers Liphook UK (01428)

If you have an existing drive, these materials will need to be removed and disposed of in the correct fashion. To make sure that your new block paving driveway abides by regulations pertaining to your property's damp proof course (DPC), additional excavations might also be required. Two brick courses below your property's current DPC, is the guideline for new driveways in Liphook.

Liphook block paving driveways being installed on top of grass or bare earth, will need around 230mm (nine inches) of soil to be excavated and taken away. This is going to allow for the creation of a proper sub-base and sharp sand stratum, before any block pavers are put down.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

A good layer of MOT Type 1 crushed gravel and stones, covered with sharp sand, is utilised to create the sub-base. The installation of a firm and sound sub-base is essential to make certain that your new drive doesn't end up with low lying spots and dips where pools can form and cause you problems. Firmly packed down to create a strong, durable and solid surface for your path, driveway or terrace in Liphook, MOT Type 1 is a crushed aggregate, normally made from granite or limestone.

During this phase of the installation process any potential drainage issues will be sorted out. If this isn't already present in the lay of the land, a fall or slope will be introduced, to encourage the water to run-off. Either purpose built drainage grates can be inserted between your home and the drive for steering this water away, or it can just be directed away from the house by the gradient.

Once the type 1 sub-base has been firmly compacted down, sharp sand will be added and levelled off to form a base for laying the paving blocks.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

Surface water must be run off to a suitable permeable area on any driveway over 5m2 in Liphook. If this can't be complied with you will have to apply for planning permission from the local authorities for the driveway installation. In order to avert localised flooding, any surface water run-off from your drive can't be redirected into the main drainage system.

Houses that are inside a designated conservation area will need additional consideration with regards to design and drainage elements. With their experience and knowhow, a reputable installation specialist should be able to successfully shepherd you through this tricky process, and reach a satisfactory solution.

AMOUNT, DESIGN AND COLOUR OF PAVERS

There are a range of different sizes, colours and shapes of block pavers, and whatever design of drive you require, you should have no trouble finding a product that works. From simple straight sided, square or rectangular block pavers, to s-shape, curved, diamond and circular, you'll find a style for you.

Tumbled Block Paving Liphook (GU30)

Traditional style pavers, known as tumbled pavers, can be purchased for older buildings in Liphook, to create a seamless and sympathetic entrance to your house.

Your new block paver driveway in Liphook could be designed as a simple square or rectangular shape, or it could weave its way around other existing features of your garden.

WASTE DISPOSAL

Any block paving installation quotation must include an allowance for the removal of waste and the responsible method of its disposal. The dimensions of your new driveway will dictate the amount of earth and existing driveway materials that must be disposed of. Unless you're able to use the scraped off topsoil in other sections of your garden, it will need to be carted away by truck. Earth and other related materials that are excavated must be disposed of in a sound, environmentally friendly fashion at a registered site.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

You might be advised to put a sealing coat the block paving after installation, although this isn't absolutely essential for your new drive in Liphook. Sealing can help to lengthen the life of your block paved drive, it also inhibits the risk of weed growth, protects it from staining, improves the colour and stops fading. The applying of a decent block paving sealant is a great way to secure the considerable investment that you have made in your drive.

Since the jointing and sand needs to properly settle for a while, sealants should never be put on to a recently installed block paving drive. It is recommended to wait at least 6 mths before coating a new driveway with sealer, and it is advised to use a professional for the application since mistakes are tricky to rectify.

CONCLUSION

Besides adding a useful feature, and increasing the price of your property, you can transform the look of your house with a brand new block paved drive or patio.
