Each of our jobs starts with carefully marking out where the paving will be installed. The ground is then excavated and all waste material removed from site.
The next stage is to install a suitable sub-base. This is one of the most critical stages of the process as correct preparation is extremely important for the final finish. For concrete to stand the test of time a flat, well compacted, base is essential. We only use materials specified by the British standards institute for quality concrete driveways.
Our specialised Fibre Reinforced Concrete is laid by our fully trained team using specialist tools. The concrete mix we use is 30 Newton strength concrete which is equivalent to the strength of concrete used on airport runways, giving a highly durable and long lasting surface. The garden paving, patio or driveway takes shape.
Using specialist tools, we work the surface to give a smooth finish that is laid to the correct falls. This ensures the finished project is free of puddles.
The chosen colour hardener is applied, this is a powdered substance produced to BS5750 standards. Once applied and at just the right time this is trowelled into the concrete so that it becomes a part of the integral slab, not a separate layer on top. To add to the durability of printed concrete, surface colour hardener is three times stronger than concrete (100 Newton's crush strength).
After trowelling and whilst the concrete is still pliable, the pattern is imprinted. There is an endless choice of colours and patterns available to suit any situation. We've got pattern imprinted concrete for all tastes.
Now it's time to let the concrete harden before final landscaping can take place.
Landscaping brings the whole project to life and blends the paving beautifully into its surroundings. You can now bring out the furniture and enjoy your new patio, pathway or driveway. With the minimum of maintenance your paving will look good for many, many years.
