PREPARING THE GROUNDWORK

Block Pavers Newport Pagnell UK (01908)

If your new block pave drive is replacing an existing drive, it will be necessary to lift, remove and dispose of the old materials. Additional excavations may be necessary to ensure your new block paving dive conforms to regulations with respect to the DPC (damp proof course) of your home. The regulations demand that new driveways are laid at least 2 brick courses below the existing damp proof course of your home.

Approximately 230mm (nine inches) of soil will have to be dug out and disposed of if your new block pave drive in Newport Pagnell is being installed over grass or bare earth. This will allow for the installation of a good sub-base and sharp sand layer, before any block pavers are put down.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

The sub-base is made up of a sharp sand topped layer of MOT Type 1 crushed material. A sturdy sub-base makes sure that your new drive doesn't shift or develop dips where pools can form. Compacted to form a durable, firm and strong surface for your patio area, driveway or path in Newport Pagnell, Type 1 is a crushed aggregate, generally made from limestone or granite.

Any drainage issues will be taken care of during this stage of the installation process. A fall or incline, will be introduced, if not already inherent in the natural lay of the land, to enable water to drain off easily. Either purpose built drainage channels/grates can be installed in between your home and the drive for channelling this water away, or it can simply be redirected away from the property by the slope.

Sharp sand is added above the compacted Type 1 sub-base and levelled off to form a base for the paving blocks to be laid into.

DRAINAGE AND WATER RUN-OFF REQUIREMENTS

All driveways in Newport Pagnell over five square metres must allow excess water to run off to a suitable permeable area. If this can't be adhered to you'll have to get planning permission from the local authorities for the installation. So as to prevent local flooding, any excess water from your drive is not allowed to be redirected into the drainage system.

Path Block Paving Near Newport Pagnell Buckinghamshire

To make certain your new driveway abides by the legislation, an established Newport Pagnell block paving installation company will ascertain your drainage needs as part of the drive installation process and take any necessary measures. This might require integrated drainage channels, a completely permeable driveway and perhaps the digging of a soak-away area on your land.

Homes that are inside a conservation area will need added consideration with regards to drainage and design features. A decent installation company will have the knowledge and experience to be able to steer you through this tricky process.

DESIGN, COLOUR AND AMOUNT OF PAVERS

Block pavers come in a wide variety of sizes, colours and shapes to suit any design and layout of drive you require. From standard straight sided, square or oblong pavers, to curved, circular, diamond and s-shape, there will be a style for you. Block paving can be colour matched to suit your property's brickwork, or be totally different to create an attractive feature.

Tumbled Block Paving Newport Pagnell (MK16)

Traditional style block pavers, generally known as tumbled or tumble pavers, can be bought for older properties in Newport Pagnell, to create a more sympathetic and seamless entryway to your house. Pre-faded and with a time-worn and rustic appearance, tumbled block pavers give the impression that they've been there for ever. You can also obtain contemporary block pavers if you want to create a more modern look, and a high-gloss finish is even possible by applying a suitable block paving seal.

Based upon the layout of your garden area, your new block paved driveway in Newport Pagnell could be designed as a straightforward square or rectangular shape, or it could snake around other landscaping features for a more pleasing effect. Three of the most common block paving designs are Basketweave, Herringbone and Stretcher Bond, although block paving can be laid in a number of patterns to gain different effects. Whatever the pattern or design, a reliable block paving contractor in Newport Pagnell will build a quality drive that looks fantastic.

Installing an edging to your block paved driveway must also be looked at. You can talk to your chosen installer about the pros and cons of raised edging, different colours or shapes, or if your driveway is bounded by walls, whether it needs edging at all.

DISPOSAL OF WASTE MATERIALS

A block paving installation quotation must always include the charges for the removal of waste and soil and the proper manner of its disposal. Obviously, the amount of existing driveway materials and earth that will need to be carted away will depend on the size of your new drive and whether a pre-existing driveway is involved. Any excavated topsoil will need to be moved by by truck if it cannot be utilised in other parts of your garden. Earth and other related materials that are excavated throughout the installation must be disposed of in a sound, responsible fashion at a registered site.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER

You may be encouraged to put a coat of sealant on the block paving after it's been installed, although this is not essential for your new driveway in Newport Pagnell. You can lengthen the lifespan of your block paving drive by treating it, and in addition the sealer enhances the colour, stops fading, reduces the risk of weed growth and shields it from staining. If you wish to protect the investment of time and money that you have made in your new block paved drive, coating it with a quality sealer it is a good way to accomplish it.

Sealants must never be put on a newly installed driveway as sand and joints need to settle properly for some time. The advised waiting time for coating a new drive with sealant is 6 mths, and it is always best to use a specialist for this kind of project because it's hard to put right any mistakes that are made with this process.

CONCLUSION

Aside from gaining a useful facility, and increasing the price of your building, you can transform the look of your house with a new block paved patio or driveway. It can provide a space to sit and relax in your garden, a hard wearing area for securely parking your vehicle, or create a distinctive and unique garden path for accessing your house.
