Block Paving

If you need block paving services in the Newark-on-Trent area, then Swinderby Construction are the right choice for you. Block paving is a desirable choice for driveways and pathways, as well as being a great way of creating unique patterns and features to make your property a unique stand-out. Having block paving installed on your land has many benefits including adding value to your property, creating easy drainage for surplus water, and is highly versatile. The material comes in a wide array of shapes, sizes and colours enabling you to create bespoke patterns and designs for your home.

It always helps to understand the process of installing block paving as it gives you a better idea of time scales and the finished product. Getting your design set in stone is the first key step for any project. As a homeowner you need to consider what look you are going for, whether you want to extend or replace your existing driveway or pathway, and how important low maintenance is to you. Once these decisions have been made excavation of the area will take place and the extent of this will depend on the size of the overall job. Our team have been complimented in the past for their high level of cleanliness and efficiency during this process. After this the edge of the area needs to be outlined so that a clear place is defined for the block paving to be installed. Land will then be compacted, and a layer of sharp sand laid on top of it, before being raked and levelled using screeding rails, string lines and the edging. Once all the preparation has been carried out the paving begins, with patterns and designs coming to life. A sweep of the drive, an added layer of kiln dried sand and a final compacting finishes the creation and increases the overall strength of the paving. All these steps are carried out by our expert team to help create the best outdoor space for our clients.

Alongside installation we also offer a maintenance service to keep your driveways and pathways looking fresh. Swinderby Construction can clean block paving, fix any repairs that may need doing, or carry out sealing work. Effective maintenance on old or new driveways is cost effective and most importantly can keep you from replacing your entire driveway. Some of the maintenance services that we offer include:

  • Dirt cleaning
  • Moss Removal
  • Enhance appearance
  • Individual brick or block replacement
  • Algae Removal
  • Efflorescence treatment
  • Extend durability and wear
  • Weed control and removal

The addition of a patio to your home can add extra value, aesthetic appeal and improve outdoor space dramatically. It is a way of providing your home with an easy to use external space in summer months and another place for you and your family to socialise. We can provide you with advice on the ideal patio for your home, taking into consideration the location, space and shape ideal for you. There are many different styles available when it comes to patio design and it is worth knowing about some of them to make the best difference to your space. Bringing the outside in can make the most of smaller or more compact gardens and running similar tiles across the entire space can help to achieve this look. Using tiles or stone can bring a more contemporary look to your garden by contrasting against existing grass, but if this isn’t for you the patio area can be kept simple and functional for all family needs.

Swinderby Construction are the right choice for your patio installation as we can carry out any vision you have. Small or large, no garden space is a challenge for us to enhance. All work to be done will be checked by you first and we make sure that there are no surprises along the way.

Driveway Surfaces

As well as offering block paving as an option for driveways, we use other techniques to create an ideal space for your car and other vehicles. The type of material you use for your driveway should be chosen based on several considerations including the needs of the surface, details you want to incorporate such as colour or design, and overall aesthetic appearance. Tarmac driveways are a popular choice due to their easy installation, low cost and flexibility. Gravel driveways are easy to repair and replace as the material is readily available and they can help to maintain the look and feel of your property. Resin Bound driveways are a fantastic option if you want to personalise your external space but also want something which is durable and environmentally friendly. Resin Bound surfacing is great for large driveways expanding over 5 square meters as the permeable material does not need planning permission because it provides an escape for water and helps to prevent flooding. It is also worth seriously considering the driveway options available to you and our team of specialists use their years of knowledge in the field to help you make the important decision.
