Property Professional

Local paving and driveway specialist who can quickly and easily convert an unused front garden into a drive and extend your garden with a useful patio for outdoor seating.

No job too small, laying some new paving slabs or creating a brick border in a garden bed. Or too big, transform an old tarmac into a stylish block paving driveway or landscape an entire back garden complete with natural stone patio pavers, pathway and complimentary bespoke flower bed borders.

Domestic paving and driveway specialist services include;

Driveway

  • asphalt driveway, similar to concrete but cheaper and less likely to crack
  • block paying, can be laid in different styles and patterns for a unique finish
  • concrete driveway, a quick option that lasts for years
  • gravel and shingles, easy cheaper option for an attractive finish
  • resin bound driveway, a mixture of stone and resin which creates a strong smooth finish
  • tarmac, lasts an eternity

Patio paving slabs and stone

  • porcelain, which requires very little maintenance
  • concrete combines style and strength
  • Indian sandstone, always a popular choice due to strength and natural beauty
  • Yorkstone, available in buff and grey colours
  • crazy paving, laying stones of irregular size and shape in a haphazard manner and filling the gaps with mortar to add character to a space
  • Limestone, long lasting durable paving, well suited to the British climate
  • natural stone, which can include granite, basalt, slate as well as a few mentioned above

So, if you need a paving and driveway specialist to service or repair something outside your home HaMuch has thousands of friendly, Interlay (the association of paving contractors) registered professionals ready to help with your new block paving drive, well designed porcelain patio complete with patio steps and natural stone granite garden bed pavers.

Do I need a local paving and driveway specialist?

If your driveway has fallen into disrepair, or you’re considering installing some new paving from scratch, it’s a good idea to seek the help of a local specialist. Rather than attempting to fit paving stones or bricks yourself, or picking the cheapest possible firm and hoping for the best, we recommend that you always select a driveway or paving contractor that has a good reputation among people from your local area. HaMuch can help you find the perfect specialist!

What do pavers and driveway specialists do?

A professional driveway contractor will ensure that your driveway or paving is built on time, at the agreed cost, and to a high standard. They will also help with the following:

  • Sourcing materials for your paving/driveway: In landscape architecture, pavements are part of the hardscapes and are used on paved paths, patios, and driveways. There are various materials that can be used for paving driveways or paths: concrete, clay brick, asphalt, stone and tiles, to name a few. A trusted tradesman can help you source the best material for your driveway or paving based on what would best suit your property.
  • Installation of your paving/driveway: A driveway needs a solid foundation. Always consult a specialist and seek the advice of professionals before working on your driveway. Speak to local paving companies about your plans, and get their expert advice and recommendations.
  • Maintenance of your paving/driveway: A paving contractor will ensure proper drainage below the paving or driveway and fill any gaps between the paves, applying driveway sealer to keep it looking good as new. This will ensure that it stands the test of time.
