What are the benefits of block paving driveways

Block paving is one of the simplest driveway surfaces to maintain. It can be cleaned easily with a mix of water and detergent. If any of the blocks get damaged for some reason, then it’s a simple job of removing these blocks and replacing them with new block paving blocks. These attractive and versatile blocks can add luxury and beauty to any area of your home or business that you choose to install them. Block paving is porous so any rainwater is readily absorbed which will minimise pooling and surface water from sitting around for long periods of time so this improves overall drainage problems from occurring. Block paving is a very strong, robust and hard wearing surface that can withstand the constant abuse that life throws at it, such as heavy traffic movement with virtually no wear and tear. Block paving surfaces can also be professionally sealed which offers more protection and keeps your driveway surface in top condition. Block paving can only add value and aesthetic appeal to your home or business.

Do I need planning permission to replace my existing driveway surface?

If you are in the market to replace an existing driveway surface then the answer is most probably no. You will most likely not require planning permission. This would be as long as your new driveway’s surface material is permeable, basically this means porous, that will allow for rainwater to drain through sufficiently. If you are planning on the replacement of an existing driveway that is over 5 square metres and this surface material is of non-permeable qualities, then planning permission will most often than not, need to be applied for. We do always recommend choosing one of our many porous materials that we offer or alternatively, we can address the situation by installing a thorough drainage system that will run parallel with your more traditional and non-permeable product driveway materials.

How deep do you excavate before laying a drive

One of the main considerations and factors that the installation team takes into account before constructing your driveway is the depth of the foundations that will eventually take the sublayer materials prior to the block paving being laid. Driveways that are not excavated substantially deep enough can cause major problems later on such as driveways sinking, shifting, tyre tracks and breaking up on a later date. This is usually the reason why rogue traders do not excavate deep enough as it saves on time and money on materials giving them extra profit at your expense!. This is why you should be aware of cheap driveway prices when approached and offered. You can be rest assured that Premium Driveways of Derby will always excavate to the required depths of 150-200 mm and also take into account the changing rise and fall of the ground surface and adjust depths accordingly.

Do you use subcontractors on your driveway installations?

Never. We are a professional driveway company that have our own employees and work together all the time and have done so for many years. You will be dealing with the same tradesmen from the initial quotation to your completed driveway and final payment, and I am more than confident in the knowledge that you will be very happy with our driveway services, whichever surface that you choose. We therefore hope that you recommend us to your friends and family and they become valid customers also.

How much does it cost for block paving or any other of your driveway surfaces?

Each and every paving job is different and therefore until we know all the variables it’s very difficult to issue a firm price until we have surveyed the area and taken everything into account, it would not be fair on you as a customer or us as a company, the last thing we want to do is give you a price over the phone. Once we have taken various measurements of the area, consulted with you about block selection, design we should have a much better understanding of the project. Other things that can affect the price is the amount of man-hole covers, extra drainage, any further brickwork required such as walls or steps. Once we know your exact requirements then we will prepare a no-obligation quotation for the intended work and the customers approval. Always beware of cheap quotes that companies give you over the phone, cheap paving usually comes at a heavy price to pay later when your paving sinks due to inferior foundations and sub-par materials. Please don’t buy cheap paving installations as it will cost you dearly later on!

How long will it take to Install a new driveway?

Just like any building project the installation time is relevant to the size of the driveway and can be quite varied. Once we have viewed and assessed your particular home or business driveway project, we will have a much more in depth idea of timescales involved. During our initial meeting, we can discuss a schedule on how long we reckon your job will take and our current workload to fit you in..
