Each and every installation on a driveway is done on an individual basis where the area is first assessed for underground cabling or pipes before we start in with the machinery. Once we know the area is good to excavate, our diggers will get to work preparing the area for a new base.

Our paving contractors will always ensure a solid base is applied before the weed block and sand is applied. A solid base foundation is the key to a long term and durable paved driveway installation.

Block paving is manufactured similar to bricks but are made using concrete instead of clay which is used for bricks. Available in a wide range of colours, textures and sizes.

Suitable for any vehicular or foot traffic with different sizes recommended for patios, driveways or even roadways. Laid normally in a herringbone pattern, 45 or 90 degree, on a sand of bed which is screeded to ensure an even finish for your surface.

When you compare the cost in getting someone to pave your driveway vs someone laying down tarmac, resin or any other type of hard standing surface, block paving is very competitive in price. It provides durability, longevity without having to sacrifice on choice.

Available in a wide range of colours and laying styles, from 1 sized installation to mixed 3 size variety’s, it can be tailored for modern, contemporary or traditional styled homes.

Depending if you choose a standard block paviour or go with more a custom style, the price can vary slightly.

Another commonly asked question is maintenance for block paving and how often you should clean them off.

Simple maintenance for your block paving to be carried out once a year by washing down the paved area and lightly brush off any build up on the surface. Once dried, top up the joints with kiln dried sand and your driveway is good to go for another year.

Another option is to have your paving sealed in Guildford using a stone impregnator which will help to prevent moss, algae and grime build up on the paving whilst protecting the colour of your paving.

We can discuss this very affordable option with you during any time of the installation and can recommend the best time for you or us to handle it for you.
