When planning and designing your new block paved driveway in Whitchurch it is important to think ahead when you are considering just how large you should build it. You'll want to be able to safely park and move your vehicle, and it is better to organise your new driveway around these specifications, even though the size of the garden area that you have to build on will have an influence on this. If it is at all possible in your circumstances, it is also recommended to build a drive that has the capacity for more than just your own vehicle. This permits visitors to park their vehicles or possibly a teenager's vehicle when they get through their driving test.

Always try to obtain no less than three fully itemised price quotes from different paving companies, when your are looking for a specialist contractor to install your block paving patio or driveway in Whitchurch. You can ask for advice and recommendations from friends or family, if any of them have recently had a block paved driveway installed.

Any self-respecting Whitchurch firm will offer you a free and comprehensive quotation for the entire project. Try to keep away from contractors who say that they "just happen to be in the area on another job." They may of course be genuine (but are unlikely to be), and there are far too many horror stories of householders being embarrassed and out of pocket when a driveway isn't finished, or receiving second-rate work carried out.

Items that will be factored into any quote might include:

  • Preparing the groundwork, i.e. excavations
  • Sub-base installation
  • Water run-off and drainage specifications
  • Design, quantity and colour of block pavers
  • Disposal of waste
  • Other issues to consider

GROUNDWORK PREPARATION

Block Pavers Whitchurch UK (01948)

If you have an existing drive, this material will have to be removed and disposed of in the correct fashion. Further excavations may be needed to ensure your new block pave drive upholds building regulations with respect to the damp proof course (DPC) of your property. Two courses of bricks or 150mm below your property's existing damp proof course, is the guideline for new driveways in Whitchurch.

Whitchurch block paved driveways that are being laid onto grass or bare earth, will need around 230mm (9 inches) of soil to be dug out and removed from the site. This will allow for the installation of a proper sub-base and sharp sand layer, before the block paving is laid.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

A layer of Type 1 crushed gravel and stones, covered with sharp sand, is used to form the sub-base. To make sure that your drive doesn't move or develop dips where pools can form, a solid sub-base is crucial. The Type 1 is a crushed aggregate mixture, typically composed of granite or limestone which is compacted to form a solid, durable and strong surface for your terrace, driveway or path in Whitchurch.

Any issues with drainage will be addressed during this phase of the installation process. If not already inherent in the lay of the land, a fall or gradient will be introduced, to allow the water to drain off. This will be directed either away from your house or into drainage grates installed in between your drive and your dwelling.

The base onto which the blocks are arranged is created by shovelling sharp sand onto the firmly compacted sub-base aggregate.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

All driveways in Whitchurch over 5M² must allow water to run off to a suitable permeable area. Planning permission from your local authority will be necessary, if this stipulation cannot be observed. So as to avoid localised flooding, any water run-off from your drive is not allowed to be diverted into the main drainage system.

As part of the installation process, a reliable block paving specialist in Whitchurch will calculate your requirements for drainage and take the necessary measures to make certain your new driveway sticks to the legislation. They may need to install a permeable driveway, add integrated drainage grates/channels or excavate a soak-away area on your property, in order to achieve this.

If your house is within a designated conservation area, further design and drainage factors will probably have to be looked into. A decent installation contractor will have the knowhow and experience to be able to shepherd you through this process.

STYLE, COLOUR AND AMOUNT OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a whole host of sizes, colours and shapes to suit any design and layout of driveway you are planning. From the regular and ubiquitous, straight edged, square or rectangular block pavers, to the more fancy, curved, circular, diamond and s-shape designs, there'll surely be a style which matches your needs. You can match up your drive colours with the brickwork of your property, or create an attractive feature with a completely different colour.

Tumbled Block Paving Whitchurch (SY13)

Traditional style block paving, often known as tumbled or tumble pavers, are readily available for older properties in Whitchurch, to create a sympathetic and seamless entryway to your home. These pavers have been pre-faded during manufacture to give the appearance of being old and time-worn. For a more modern feel, there are also contemporary block pavers, which can even be given a high-gloss finish when suitably sealed.

Your new block paved drive in Whitchurch could be designed as a basic rectangular or square shape, or it could snake its way around other existing features of your garden. Block paving can be laid in a number of patterns to produce different effects; Stretcher Bond, Herringbone and Basketweave are the 3 most common designs. Whatever the pattern, a reliable block paving specialist in Whitchurch will be able to provide a quality driveway that looks fantastic.

You also need to look at installing a edging. Your preferred contractor will be delighted to discuss the advantages and drawbacks of raised kerb stones, different colours and shapes, or if your driveway even needs to be edged (as when bounded by walls).

DISPOSAL OF WASTE

Fees for the removal of waste and soil and its proper disposal should all be listed in any block paving installation quote. The volume of existing driveway materials and earth that must be carted away will be determined by the overall dimensions of your new driveway. Any excavated soil will have to be carried away by truck if it cannot be utilised on other parts of your garden. Any earth and other excavated materials must be disposed of at a registered site, in a sound and responsible fashion.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

You might be encouraged to apply a seal to the block paving after it's been installed, although this is not absolutely essential for your new drive in Whitchurch. You can lengthen the life of your block paved drive by sealing it, and additionally the sealer enhances the colour, slows down fading, shields it from staining and lowers the risk of algae growth. If you wish to secure the investment of time and money that you have made in your block paving drive, sealing it is a great way to accomplish it.

Sealers should never be applied to a recently installed block paving drive as jointing and sand needs to properly settle over time. It is best to use a specialist for the sealant application, as mistakes are difficult to resolve, and it's suggested that you wait at least six months prior to doing it.

CONCLUSION

Apart from adding a useful facility, and boosting the price of your building, you can truly transform the appearance of your house with a brand new block paving patio or driveway. It can provide a hard wearing and stable area for safely parking your vehicle, or create a fantastic area to relax and enjoy a sturdy seating and barbecue area in your garden.
