You will want to think about the dimensions of your block paving dive in Stepps during the design phase, to make certain it's big enough for your purpose.

If you've got an existing drive, these materials will have to be removed and disposed of in the correct manner. Further excavations may be required to make sure your new block paved drive complies with regulations with respect to your property's DPC (damp proof course). New installations of driveways require them to be at least 2 courses of bricks or 6 inches below the existing damp proof course.

If your new block paved drive in Stepps is going onto grass or bare earth, roughly nine inches (230mm) of soil will have to be excavated and disposed of. This is going to allow for the creation of a good sub-base and sharp sand layer, before your block paving is put down.

INSTALLATION OF THE SUB-BASE

A good layer of Type 1 crushed material, covered with sharp sand, will be utilised to form the sub-base. To make certain that your driveway won't shift or develop low lying spots and dips where water can pool, a sound sub-base is essential. Firmly packed down to form a strong, firm and durable surface for your footpath, terrace or driveway in Stepps, MOT Type 1 is a crushed granular aggregate, usually made from limestone or granite.

During this stage of the installation drainage issues will be taken care of. If this is not already inherent in the natural lay of the land, an incline or fall will be developed, to allow excess water to flow off. You can either direct this water away from your home, or direct it into drainage channels that are installed between the driveway and your property.

The final base onto which the block pavers are arranged is formed by the addition of sharp sand to the compacted sub-base aggregate.
