Paved Driveway Installation Westhoughton

1. The Problem

Cracked uneven flags and weather damage.

Driveway installation projects are a very underrated part of a home renovation project. But by installing a professional driveway you can totally transform the exterior aesthetics your home.

Belvoir Contractors delivered this when we had a customer approach us by calling us. We called for our initial visit to assess the driveway and site and to provide a quote.

The customer advised us they would like a paved driveway and were happy with the quote we provided.

2. What happened next in the paved driveway installation?

For this Westhoughton paving driveway installation project, the client decided upon a design that was a classic paved drive with a paved border.

Blocks of light grey argent granite paving blocks were used for the driveway.

Excavating the previous driveway was the next step by removing all the old large dirty paving stones. We don't leave any mess behind, we take all the old rubble away.

Sand is then laid compacted using a vibrating plate ensuring an even surface. We began to lay the paving by resting the bricks in the client's chosen pattern. Making sure to measure all full paving blocks before cutting any edges.

Once all the alignments were set and checked we mark the blocks before cutting in the edges. We did this using tools such as a diamond blade wet saw, paver splitter, hammer, and chisel.

The last thing we did was sweep the driveway removing any debris and began to spread jointing sand over the paving. We left a small amount on the surface so that when using the vibration plate, the compactor will compact the bricks into the sand, filling the joints.

We cleaned the drive and swept the excess dry sand on the surface so it can again fill the joints and sand will settle with rain and weather.

A team of four members of staff took just two days to install this stunning driveway.

The new driveway reflects on the client’s home making it look incredibly welcoming and modern with a nice place to park their car on.
