Driveway's by Paving Perfection based in Loanhead near Edinburgh
Often overlooked during the initial excitement of choosing which type and colour of Monoblock that would suit your home and your individual tastes is the preparation of the sub-base for your new driveway. All monoblock looks fantastic when installed to the correct standard but can look terrible after a couple of months if the subbase below has not been prepared satisfactorily.
The first part of your driveway installation is to remove any existing paving or monoblock, or indeed concrete and dispose of by using skips or grab lorries. This enables us to excavate the ground to the required depth (as per Marshalls requirements).
The next stage is to install suitable edgings around the perimeter of the driveway, the edgings will then be laid on a concrete bed with extra concrete at rear to prevent lateral pressure which could cause the driveway to spread. The Hardcore and Sand will be compacted using a HAUC*1 compatible vibrating roller before the new block paving is installed. Dry silica joint filling sand is then applied and the entire area is then compacted again using the vibrating plate. Dry weather is essential for this part of the project. All that is required now is to clear away any excess sand and any other materials.
Local Authority Consent
With on-street parking at a premium and the number of houses with two or more car owners increasing, more people are making use of space around their homes to use for car parking. If you do not already have a driveway, Local Authority Consent in one form or another may be required, at the very least, permission to lower the kerb to allow cars to cross the pavement. We can deal with these consents for you, if required, including Planning, Feu Superiors and Pedestrian Crossing Permits but you will be required to pay the charges issued by your Local Authority and the cost of making good the pavement if required.
