Block Paving Ore East Sussex (TN35): Block paving is an appealing way to create a driveway, patio or path around your property in Ore. In both residential and commercial situations, making a hard wearing parking area for cars is the the most widespread use of block pavers.
For any Ore property, off-road parking is a highly desirable feature which will add value to your house, provided that it is installed professionally. An investment in good quality block paving now will pay dividends in the long run should you ever decide to sell your house.
You have to think carefully about the overall size of your block paved drive in Ore during the design stage, to make sure it is large enough for your needs. You'll need to be able to move and safely park your car, and it is better to organise your new driveway around these specifications, even though the dimensions of the garden area that you have to build on will have a bearing on this. If it's possible in your situation, it is also a great idea to put in a drive that has enough room for one more vehicle. This provides space for visitor's cars and also for older children's vehicles when they eventually get through their test and begin driving.
When trying to find a competent contractor to install your new block paved area in Ore, always request a minimum of three price quotes from different paving companies. You can ask for advice and recommendations from friends and neighbours, if any of them have recently had a block paving driveway installed.
Any Ore block paving installer worth their salt will be very happy to provide you with a completely free and comprehensive quotation for the whole project. It isn't worth taking the risk of hiring people who just show up at your door with claims like "we're working in the area on another project, do you want..?" They could of course be legitimate (but are unlikely to be), and there are any number of horrific stories of householders being left out of pocket when a driveway is not successfully completed, or receiving shoddy work carried out.
Provisioned for any quotation would be items like:
- Preparing the groundwork (excavations)
- Installation of sub-base
- Drainage and water run-off specifications
- Colour, style and quantity of block pavers
- Disposal of waste
- Other things to consider
PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK
If your new block paved driveway in Ore is replacing a pre-existing driveway, it's going to be necessary to first lift, remove and recycle the old construction materials. To make certain your new block paved drive abides by regulations in relation to the damp proof course of your home, more excavations might also be required. New driveway installations are required to be two brick courses or 6 inches below the existing DPC.
Roughly 230mm of soil will have to be excavated and removed if your block paving dive in Ore is being installed over grass or bare earth. This is going to allow for the installation of a proper sub-base and sharp sand layer, before your block paving is laid.
The sub-base consists of a layer of Type 1 crushed gravel and stones covered with sharp sand. A sturdy sub-base makes certain that your drive doesn't shift or develop low lying spots where puddles can form. Usually made from limestone or granite which is firmly packed down to form a solid, strong and durable surface for your footpath, driveway or patio in Ore, MOT Type 1 is a kind of crushed granular aggregate.
Any issues with drainage will be taken care of during this phase of the installation. To allow the water to flow away easily, a slope or fall, will be inserted, if not already present in the lay of the land. You can either redirect this water away from your home, or direct it into purpose built drainage channels installed between your house and the drive.
The final surface on which the paving blocks are arranged is created by shovelling sharp sand onto the firmly compacted type 1 sub-base.
DRAINAGE AND WATER RUN-OFF REQUIREMENTS
Every driveway in Ore that has an area in excess of 5 sq metres, must have the provision for water to run into a suitable permeable area close by. If this cannot be adhered to you'll need to apply for planning permission from the local council for the driveway installation. Any surface water run-off from your driveway can't be diverted into the drainage system in order to prevent local flooding.
To keep your new driveway within the legislation, a reliable Ore block paving installation company will analyse your drainage needs as an integral part of the installation process and take any action that is necessary. They may have to install a SUDS compliant permeable driveway, add built-in drainage channels or excavate a dedicated soak-away on your land, so as to achieve this.
If your property is inside the defined limits of a conservation area, further drainage and design aspects might have to be evaluated. To get advice and guidance through this process, you should seek the assistance of an experienced block paving installer in Ore.
QUANTITY, DESIGN AND COLOUR OF PAVERS
To suit any design of drive you require, block paving comes in a whole host of colours, sizes and shapes. From standard straight sided, rectangular or square pavers, to circular, curved, diamond and s-shape, there will be a style for you. You could match your drive colours with your home's brickwork, or create an attractive feature with a totally different colour.
To create a more seamless and sympathetic entrance for older buildings in Ore, you may favour purchasing the traditional style pavers, often called tumbled pavers. These pavers have been pre-faded to give the look of being old and time-worn. For a more modern feel, you can also buy contemporary block pavers, which can even produce a high-gloss surface finish when properly sealed.
The design of your new block paved driveway in Ore might be a straightforward oblong or square shape, or perhaps you've got landscaping features which it will have to weave its way around. The three most widespread block paver designs are Herringbone, Stretcher Bond and Basketweave, although the laying of block paving can be completed in several patterns for different effects. A decent block paving specialist in Ore will be able to provide a quality drive that looks awesome, whichever design you pick.
A block paving edging is also something to look into. You can chat with your chosen contractor about the benefits of raised edging, different shapes or colours, or when your driveway is flanked by walls, whether it in fact needs to be edged at all.
Fees for the removal of waste materials and the expedient manner of its disposal should all be included in any block paving installation quotation. Naturally, the quantity of earth and waste materials that will be required to be carted away will be dependent on the scale of your new drive and whether or not an existing drive is involved. If it can't be utilised on other areas of your garden, any excavated topsoil will need to be shifted by truck, trailer or in a skip. Environmentally friendly disposal at a registered site is essential for any excavated earth and associated materials.
You may be advised to put a sealing coat the block paving after installation, although this isn't absolutely essential for your new drive in Ore. Sealing can extend the life of your block paved drive, it also protects it from staining, stops fading, brings out the true colour and lowers the risk of weed growth. A coating of sealant is a great way to safeguard the investment that you have made in your block paved drive.
Sealants must never be put on a recently installed block paved drive as sand and joints need to properly settle over time. It is recommended to wait at least 6 mths before applying sealant to a new block paving drive, and it is highly advisable to use a specialist for the application since errors are difficult to correct.
