PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Longridge UK (01772)

If you've already got a driveway on your property in Longridge, the associated construction materials and waste products will need to be lifted, removed and disposed of in an ethical and responsible way. To make sure your new block paving dive follows regulations relating to the DPC (damp proof course) of your property, further excavations may also be needed. The rules require that new driveway installations at least 2 brick courses below the current damp proof course of your structure.

Longridge block paving driveways that are being installed upon grass or bare earth, will need approximately 9 inches (230mm) of soil to be excavated and taken away. This allows for a decent sub-base and sharp sand layer to be established before the block paving is installed.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

A good layer of MOT Type 1 crushed stones and gravel, covered with sharp sand, is utilised to create the sub-base. The installation of a firm and sound sub-base is vital to make certain that the driveway does not develop dips and low lying spots where water can pool and cause problems. The Type 1 is a crushed aggregate, generally composed of limestone or granite which is compacted to form a durable, sturdy and firm surface for your patio, footpath or driveway in Longridge.

This is the stage where any drainage issues will be dealt with. To enable the water to run-off easily, a gradient or fall, will be introduced, if this is not already inherent in the natural lay of the land. This water will either be directed as far away from your house as possible, or into drainage channels, installed in between your home and the driveway.

Sharp sand is added above the packed down sub-base Type 1 aggregate and levelled off to form a base for the pavers to be set into.

WATER RUN-OFF AND DRAINAGE REQUIREMENTS

All driveways in Longridge above five square metres must allow excess water to run into a permeable area. Planning permission from your local council will be needed, if this precondition can't be complied with. So as to avoid local flooding, any excess water from your drive isn't allowed to be diverted into the main drainage system.

To keep your new drive within the law, a reliable Longridge block paving installation specialist will determine your drainage needs as an integral part of the installation process and take any measures that are necessary. They might need to add integrated drainage channels, excavate a dedicated soak-away or install a permeable driveway, in order to achieve this.

If your home is within the legally defined limits of a conservation area, further drainage and design factors may have to be considered. With their knowledge and experience, a reputable block paving installer will be able to successfully shepherd you through this process, and reach a satisfactory solution.

QUANTITY, COLOUR AND STYLE OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colours to suit any design of drive you have in mind. With anything from the common straight sided, oblong or square pavers, to the more fancy, s-shape, circular, diamond and curved versions, you should be able to find the ideal style. You can create a striking feature with a contrasting colour, or select one that pretty much matches your property's brickwork.

Tumbled Block Paving Longridge (PR3)

Older buildings in Longridge might be more suited to the traditional style of block paving, known as tumble or tumbled pavers, which produce a more sympathetic and seamless result. These pavers have been pre-faded during manufacture to give the appearance of being aged and time-worn. You can also obtain contemporary block pavers if you wish to create a more modern look, and these can even have a high-gloss finish by applying a suitable sealer.

Based upon the layout of your garden area, your new block paved driveway in Longridge could be designed as a simple rectangular or square shape, or it could snake its way around other landscaping features for a more attractive effect. The three most widespread block paving designs are Stretcher Bond, Basketweave and Herringbone, although block paving can be completed in several patterns for different effects. Whatever the design or pattern, a dependable block paving specialist in Longridge will provide a quality driveway that looks fantastic.

A block paving edging is also something to contemplate. You can discuss with your chosen installer the pros and cons of raised kerb stones, contrasting colours and shapes, or when your driveway is bounded by walls, whether it actually needs to be edged at all.

WASTE DISPOSAL

When you're given a quotation for the installation of block paving, the fees for the removal of waste and its expedient manner of disposal should accounted for. The quantity of soil and waste materials that will be required to be gotten rid of will be determined by the overall size of your new driveway. Any excess topsoil will need to be moved by by truck if it can't be utilised on other sections of your garden. Eco-friendly disposal at a registered site is a must for any waste soil and old driveway materials.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

Nearly all block paving installers in Longridge will encourage you to seal your new driveway after installation, although this isn't at all essential. You can prolong the lifespan of your block paved driveway by sealing it, and also the sealer lowers the growth of algae, stops fading, keeps it from staining and enhances the colour. The application of a decent block paving seal is a good way to safeguard the sizeable investment you've made in your new drive.

Since the sand and jointing needs to settle properly for some time, sealers should not be put on to a recently installed block paving drive. It's advisable to use a professional for the sealant application, as mistakes are hard to rectify, and it's suggested that you wait no less than six months before doing it.

CONCLUSION

You can truly transform the look of your property in Longridge, with a block paving patio or driveway. It can provide a hard wearing and stable area for parking your car, or create a splendid area to enjoy a durable barbeque and seating area in your garden.
