Our team at CJ Langs Building Solutions Ltd believe that the key to a long lasting and good looking block paved driveway is in the preparation. The preparation and construction of the foundations is a very important step in driveway installation. The process of correct building and sub base ensures that everything is in line with planning regulations, along with being strong enough and level enough to withstand any impacts and weather damage and less prone to subsidence in years to come.
All of our block paved driveways are built using the same proven process that has kept us in business for the last 25 years:
Excavation – digging out to the correct depth and disposing of unwanted soil, ensuring there is sufficient drainage for the area
Edge Course – the edge restraint is set in a sturdy concrete foundation
Lining the base – we add a membrane to prevent layers of the driveway to mix together, this also prevents any weed growth
Sub base – hardcore is laid to the correct thickness, this is the solid base for your driveway
Laying course – course sand is applied, screeded and levelled to the correct height
Block paving is then laid to your requirements, shape, size and laying pattern
Blocks are cut to size and joints are filled in with sand to ensure a tight fit
Excess sand is cleared away and your driveway is now ready to use
Drainage needs to be looked at to ensure surface rainwater can drain away sufficiently and reduce the risk of flooding. If you have an existing driveway and you are having trouble with standing water, call in the help of our team.
Throughout our 25 years in the industry, we have helped many customers with deciding which materials to use in the installation of their driveway and we can help you too. We can also give you ideas on extras such as steps, slopes, walling and lighting to ensure you have the perfect driveway for your home. Take a quick look at the patterns and colour chart here.
Kerbs play an important role in the overall design of your driveway but are not just decorative. A well built kerb keeps your vehicle safe off the road, acts as a buffer to keep the blocks in place and also allows garden soil and weeds to be kept away from the paving.
We can lay kerbs and edging wherever you want them. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, materials and colours and can compliment any driveway or patio.
All of our driveways come with a 25 year guarantee. We can take you to view completed driveways in your local area so you can see our workmanship first hand, ask a member of our team for addresses near you.
