It's imperative that you carefully consider how big to build your block paved driveway in Cumbernauld, and to prepare an exact design of the planned area. You'll need to be able to easily park and move your car or vehicle, and it is best to plan your driveway around these specifications, even though the size of the land area you have to build it on may well determine this. If it's possible in your situation, it's also a good idea to build a driveway that has room for one more car. This will give you the additional space needed when anyone visits your property, and for additional cars that may be purchased by your loved ones later on.

When you are hunting for a specialist block paver in Cumbernauld, always attempt to obtain at least three fully itemised quotations from different firms in the area. If any friends and family members have had a block pave drive put in recently, you could try asking them if there's anyone they are willing to recommend.

Any Cumbernauld block paving contractor worthy of the name will be happy to provide you with a free and comprehensive quote for the proposed project. Try and keep away from people who say that they "happen to be working locally on another job." They could of course be legit (but are unlikely to be), and there are far too many horror stories of householders being embarrassed and out of pocket when the promised driveway is not properly finished, or receiving shoddy work carried out.

Items that to be mentioned in any quotation could include:

  • Preparation (excavation) of the area
  • Sub-base installation
  • Drainage and water run-off requirements
  • Design, amount and colour of block pavers
  • Disposal of waste materials
  • Other considerations

PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Cumbernauld UK (01236)

If your new block pave drive is is going to replace an existing drive, it will be necessary to first lift, remove and recycle the old materials. It might be necessary to perform more excavations to make certain that regulations relating to your property's DPC (damp proof course) are adhered to. The regulations require that new driveways are laid two brick courses or 150mm below the existing damp proof course of your dwelling.

If your new block paved drive in Cumbernauld is going onto bare earth or grass, around 230mm (9") of soil will have to be dug out and disposed of. This will allow for the creation of a decent sub-base and sharp sand layer, before any actual block paving is put down.

SUB-BASE INSTALLATION

A good layer of MOT Type 1 crushed gravel and stones, topped with sharp sand, is utilised to create the sub-base. To ensure your new driveway does not move or develop dips and low lying spots where water can pool, a solid sub-base is crucial. Usually made from granite or limestone which is compacted to create a solid, sturdy and durable surface for your patio, drive or path in Cumbernauld, Type 1 is a type of crushed aggregate mixture.

Any drainage issues will be addressed during this phase of the installation process. If this is not already present in the natural lay of the land, an incline or fall will be introduced, to let the water to run-off. This water can either be directed as far away from your property as possible, or into purpose built drainage channels, inserted between your home and the driveway.

As soon as the sub-base aggregate has been firmly compacted down, sharp sand can be added and levelled out to create a base for laying and arranging the blocks.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

Any driveway in Cumbernauld that has a surface area of more than 5 sq mtr, must have a provision for the excess water to run to a permeable area close by. If your drive cannot conform to this caveat, planning permission will be needed from your local council. Any excess water from your drive can't be diverted into the drainage system due to the risk of local flooding.

Path Block Paving Near Cumbernauld Scotland

As an integral part of the drive installation process, a reliable block paving installer in Cumbernauld will investigate your drainage needs and take the necessary action to keep your new drive within the law. This could require the installation of built-in drainage channels, a SUDS compliant permeable driveway and maybe even the digging of a dedicated soakway on your land.

Further design and drainage factors will probably have to be considered if your property is inside the defined limits of a conservation area. To get guidance and advice through this procedure, you should seek the help of a reputable installation contractor in Cumbernauld.

COLOUR, QUANTITY AND STYLE OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a number of different shapes, colours and sizes to suit any design and pattern of driveway you are planning. From standard straight edged, rectangular or square pavers, to s-shape, curved, diamond and circular, you'll find a style for you. You can create an eye-catching feature with a totally different colour, or select one which exactly matches your property's brickwork.

Tumbled Block Paving Cumbernauld (G67)

To create a more seamless and sympathetic entryway to older properties in Cumbernauld, you might choose to purchase the traditional style pavers, known as tumbled or tumble pavers. These have been pre-faded to give the look of being aged and time-worn. There is also contemporary block paving for that more modern look, which when properly sealed, provide a high-gloss finish.

Based on the structure of your garden area, your new block paved drive in Cumbernauld could be laid out as a simple oblong or square shape, or weave its way around other hard landscaping features for a more attractive effect. Block paving can be completed in several patterns to gain different effects; Basketweave, Herringbone and Stretcher Bond are three common designs. A professional block paving specialist in Cumbernauld will be able to provide a quality driveway that looks awesome, whatever pattern you choose.

You also need to look at installing a edging. You can talk to your chosen contractor about the benefits of raised kerb stones, different colours or shapes, or when your drive is flanked by walls, whether it in fact needs edging at all.

THE DISPOSAL OF WASTE

Charges for the removal of waste and the responsible manner of its disposal should all be listed in a block paving installation estimate. The quantity of earth and existing driveway materials that will be required to be carted away will be determined by the overall size of your new drive. Any excavated topsoil will have to be carried away by truck if it can't be used on other parts of your garden. Most of the excavated soil and other materials can be reused, therefore they have to be taken to a registered waste site.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

Even though it is not essential for your new drive in Cumbernauld, you might be advised to put a coat of sealant on the block paving after it has been installed. Sealing can extend the lifespan of your block paved drive, it also stops fading, reduces the risk of algae growth, brings out the true colour and protects it from staining. A coating of sealant is a great way to protect the substantial investment that you've made in your new block paving driveway.

Sealants must never be applied to a freshly installed block paved drive as sand and jointing needs to settle properly for a while. The suggested waiting time for applying sealant to a new block paved drive is 6 mths, and it is always best to use a specialist for this type of work because it is hard to put right any errors with this process.

CONCLUSION

You can truly transform the appearance of your house in Cumbernauld, with a block paving driveway or patio. It can provide you with a space to relax and sit in your garden, a hard wearing area for safely parking your vehicle, or create a unique and distinctive pathway leading up to your house.
