Block Paving Newton Mearns Scotland (G77)

You will need to think carefully about the dimensions of your block paving driveway in Newton Mearns during the design phase of the process, to make sure it is large enough for your needs. You'll want to be able to safely park and move your car, and it is best to organise your drive around these prerequisites, although the size of the land area that you've got to build it on will have an impact on this. If it is possible to build a drive that has room for one more car than you own, that is also a good idea. This will provide the additional space needed when people visit your property, and for further cars that may be purchased by your household later on.

When searching for a qualified contractor to lay your new block paving in Newton Mearns, always get at least 3 price quotes from different companies. If any friends or neighbours have had a block pave driveway installed recently, you could also ask them if there is anybody they can recommend.

Any self-respecting Newton Mearns company will provide you with a free and in depth quote for the entire project. Any contractors who just turn up at your door stating they "just happen to be working locally on another project", should be avoided. They could obviously be legit (but are unlikely to be), and there are hundreds of horror stories of householders being left out of pocket when a drive is not properly finished, or receiving substandard work done.

Things that you should count on seeing specified on any acceptable quotation may be:

  • Preparation of the area
  • Installation of sub-base
  • Water run-off and drainage allowances
  • Amount, colour and design of block pavers
  • Waste disposal arrangements
  • Other factors to consider

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Newton Mearns UK (Dialling code	0141)

If your new block pave driveway in Newton Mearns is replacing an existing driveway, it's going to be necessary to first lift, remove and recycle the old materials. More extensive excavations will often be necessary to make sure your new block paving dive obeys regulations covering the DPC (damp proof course) of your home. New driveway installations should be at least two courses of bricks below the existing damp proof course.

Newton Mearns block paved driveways that are being laid on grass or bare earth, will need approximately 230mm (nine inches) of soil to be excavated and taken away. This is going to allow for the installation of a good sub-base and sharp sand stratum, before the block pavers are put down.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

A good layer of Type 1 crushed gravel and stones, topped with sharp sand, will be used to form the sub-base. A solid sub-base ensures your new driveway doesn't move or develop low lying spots where pools can form. Normally comprising limestone or granite which is compacted to create a sturdy, durable and solid surface for your path, driveway or patio area in Newton Mearns, Type 1 is a kind of crushed aggregate mixture.

During this phase of the installation process any potential issues with drainage will be taken care of. If not already inherent in the natural lay of the land, a slope or fall will be developed, to enable excess water to drain off. This can be directed either away from your property or into drainage grates inserted in between your driveway and your home.

Sharp sand is shovelled onto the compacted sub-base aggregate and levelled off to form a base for the block pavers to be laid into.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

Surface water must be run off to a suitable permeable area on any driveway over 5 square metres in Newton Mearns. If your driveway can't abide by this precondition, planning permission will be necessary from your local council. So as to avoid local flooding, any excess water from your driveway cannot be redirected into the main drainage system.

Path Block Paving Near Newton Mearns Scotland

To make sure that your new drive adheres to the legal guidelines, a reliable Newton Mearns block paving installation company will ascertain your drainage needs as an integral part of the installation process and take any necessary measures. This might require the installation of integrated drainage channels, a SUDS compliant permeable driveway and perhaps the digging of a soakway on your property.

Buildings that are inside a declared conservation area will need additional consideration in relation to design and drainage factors. With their experience and knowledge, a trustworthy block paving installation contractor will be able to skillfully steer you through this process, and bring it to an acceptable conclusion.

AMOUNT, COLOUR AND STYLE OF PAVERS

To suit any design and layout of driveway you need, block paving comes in an array of sizes, shapes and colours. From the commonplace and widespread, straight edged, square or rectangular pavers, to the more fancy, s-shape, diamond, curved and circular patterns, there will be a style that satisfies your needs. You can match your drive colours with your home's brickwork, or create an eye-catching feature with a completely different colour.

Tumbled Block Paving Newton Mearns (G77)

Traditional style block paving, known as tumble or tumbled pavers, are available for older buildings in Newton Mearns, to create a seamless and sympathetic entrance to your house. These block pavers have been pre-faded to give the appearance of being aged and time-worn. For a more modern look, there are also contemporary block pavers, which can even create a high-gloss finish when properly sealed.

According to the structure of your garden area, your new drive in Newton Mearns could be laid out as a basic oblong or square shape, or snake around other hard landscaping features for a more pleasing effect. To realise distinctive effects, block paving can be laid in a number of patterns; Stretcher Bond, Herringbone and Basketweave, being among the most widespread. Whatever the design, a professional block paving contractor in Newton Mearns will be able to build a quality driveway that looks amazing.

You should also consider installing some block paving edging. You can chat with your chosen installer about the benefits of raised kerb stones, different colours and shapes, or when your drive is flanked by walls, whether it needs to be edged at all.

DISPOSAL OF WASTE AND SOIL

When you're given a estimate for the installation of block paving, the charges for the removal of waste and its proper manner of disposal should all be included. The volume of earth and waste materials that will need to be gotten rid of will be determined by the overall size of your new driveway. Unless you're able to utilise the earth in other sections of your garden, it must be shifted by truck. Eco-friendly disposal at a registered site is a must for any excavated earth and other materials.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Nearly all block paving installers in Newton Mearns will advise you to seal your new driveway after installation, although this isn't by any means essential. Sealing a block paved drive will help shield your drive from staining, reduces the growth of weed and algae, prevents fading and lengthens the lifespan of your drive. The application of a quality block paving seal is the ideal way to safeguard the sizeable investment you have made in your brand new drive.

Since the sand and jointing needs to properly settle over time, sealers should never be put on a recently installed driveway. It is recommended that you wait no less than 6 months before coating a new driveway with sealant, and it is advisable to use a specialist for the application because mistakes are hard to correct.

CONCLUSION

A block paving patio or drive can truly transform the look of your home in Newton Mearns. It can provide you with a stable and hard wearing area for safely parking your vehicles, or create a fantastic area to relax and enjoy a sturdy BBQ and seating area in your back garden.
