Below, we have briefly outlined what property owners in Ashford, Staines and the neighbouring areas can expect during the installation of their block driveways.

 

  1. Excavation – In order to lay new driveways, we have to remove existing ones. This process involves digging out to a minimum of 150mm below the damp proof course of a property. We also factor in a 1cm fall in every 60cm of length to ensure optimal rainwater drainage.
  2. Edge Restraints – By setting edging materials in foundations of concrete mortar, we ensure that blocks don’t move when finally used by cars. We fit edge restraints and kerbs to a height agreed upon with our clients in Ashford, Staines and beyond.
  3. Laying a Sub-Base – Our driveway specialists then lay and compact a sub-base of MOT type 1 to a depth of at least 100mm. This provides optimal stability for finished driveways.
  4. Applying a Sand Layer – In order to correct any inconsistencies in level, we then lay sharp sand, spreading it evenly across the sub-base. Our team then compacts this layer to attain a smooth surface ready for screeding.
  5. Screeding – This process not only levels off the layer of sand by removing excess material, it also ensures the correct amount of fall for new driveways in Ashford, Staines and the neighbouring areas.
  6. Laying Block Driveways – Starting in a corner at the lower end of the slope, our driveway specialists begin laying the blocks. Where needed, we use the latest machinery to cut and shape blocks to the required size. We lay blocks 10mm to 15mm above the edge restraints before compacting them down.
  7. Filling Joints – To finish off the installation of new driveways, we sweep kiln-dried sand into every joint across the entire area. After compacting, we then repeat the process. If agreed with our clients in Ashford, Staines or any of the surrounding areas, we also apply PicSeal sealant for the ultimate protection.

 

As driveway specialists, we use industry-leading techniques and professional equipment to ensure an outstanding finish with unrivalled durability. To further extend the life of old and new driveways, we also provide maintenance in the form of our Revive-Ur-Drive service.
