Patios Installation London

Benefit from a professionally-installed new patio

There are various good reasons to consider adding a patio to your home. Doing so can, after all, increase your amount of practically usable living space and boost the property’s market value. However, there remains the big question: which patio design should you choose?

You have various options, thanks to the expertise of our patio installers. Concrete is a cost-effective and versatile option, but you could feel more drawn towards natural stone paving, with granite, limestone and sandstone all options there, or porcelain paving instead.

Then there’s block paving, which can stay the distance thanks to its impressive durability. It is also easy to maintain – as, if individual blocks in the patio incur damage, you can just replace them. Whatever your chosen material for your patio, we can both design and install it for you.

Driveway installation london

A complete driveway solution

A new driveway can make a visually attractive flourish to your property, whether residential or commercial, in London. This is especially applicable when you consider the wide range of materials and designs from which you can choose for that driveway. While we do recommend block paving, simply because it looks so good, there are other driveway options available to every homeowner.

The right choice of driveway will depend on your specific needs and preferences, but we can take you through the options. On a driveway, tarmac adds to its skid resistance, while resin-bound paving is renowned for its full permeability that lets water drain freely through the surface. Whether we install your new driveway or you already have one, we can also take care of extras - like borders, decorative edges and steps letting you walk easily between the property and its driveway.

Versatility and resilience

Block paving is otherwise referred to as brick paving, and for good reason: it comprises multiple bricks that can be lifted and replaced when remedial work is needed beneath the paving's surface. This is just one factor behind block paving's low-maintenance, low-fuss nature; indeed, the surface can be regularly washed with just soap and water for a lasting, fresh look.

Block paving is also available in an almost infinite variety of colours and styles. With the individual bricks, we can assemble driveways in many different patterns and shapes. Therefore, whether you want a relatively simple and traditional appearance or something much more intricate, block paving can achieve it. Even in rainy weather, the surface will continue to look good, as the material will absorb water that could otherwise simply be left as puddles.

While block paving is just one of many options from which you can choose for your patio or driveway, it is hard-wearing and can be used to create a particularly unique look. Therefore, you can have your patio or driveway installed in colours or patterns that suit the rest of your home.
Yes, we can - whether this is an existing patio or driveway or we have installed it ourselves. Our sealing work enables us to remove years of dirt, grime, moss, algae and other instances of weather and storm damage, leaving the surface looking practically new. We can apply a protective coating to the surface and so restore its colour and shine for years to come.
These can range from simple, largely cosmetic features, such as borders, decorative edgings and boot and pin kerbs for providing your driveway with clean, bold outlines. However, many of our extras can also serve crucial practical purposes. We can, for example, add single or double steps between the property and driveway, provide covers for manholes and install ACO drains.
The difference is largely in how they are made and applied. With resin-bonded surfacing, resin is applied in a thin layer across the surface before aggregate is scattered on top. However, with resin-bounded surfacing, the resin and aggregate are thoroughly mixed in with each other before being applied, leaving the aggregate fully coated and the surface completely bound.
It very much depends on what you want to achieve. With a resin-bounded system, though the majority of the aggregate will stick to the resin, some of it will be left loose. The result will give the illusion of loose gravel. However, resin-bonded surfacing is not porous, unlike resin-bound paving. Consequently, the latter is better for preventing puddles from forming.
