Step By Step Guide to Driveway Construction in Darlington, Stockton and Bishop Auckland
Our driveways constructions are set out in clear stages in order to ensure that build quality is controlled throughout the duration of the construction project. Our tried and tested methodology has proven itself in a wide variety of domestic garden environments and covers all aspects of driveway construction.
- Preparation – the site is cleared of rubble and debris; drainage and ground works are installed. Ground is levelled to establish proper contours and falls of the driveway.
- Laying of Concrete and Stonework – concrete is laid down and set; stonework, paving and bricks are added. Walk Boards are provided as standard to allow access to drive.
- Cleaning – high pressure jet wash and cleaning agent is used to thoroughly cleanse targeted area.
- Sealing – sealer is applied using either a brush or roller device. We recommend that vehicles are kept off the drive for a period of 24 hours to allow the sealant to take effect. Optional resealing is available on an ongoing basis.
Soft landscaping solutions and exterior landscaping (including paths, kerbs and edges) are also available.
