What do you need to know about brick or block paving?
With a paving project, do not expect to only pay for labour and materials. There is a lot of necessary prep work, including locating services such as gas pipes and drainage, seeking any necessary planning permission, digging out the area, laying drainage, and so on. The cost can be driven up if the area contains an inspection manhole drain, as this will have to be relocated. Dropping curbs to make driveways or having the materials paved in patterns will also lead to higher quotes.
Before making a hire for your brick or block paving project, it is important to look over the qualifications and completed projects for each of your choices. If they have done pattern paving in the past, do they have pictures that you can look at? Are they experienced with different filling methods? A good sign is if they are a part of a national tradesman’s association, as such groups usually enforce high standards and codes of conduct for members. Before making your final hire, ensure that your choice is adequately covered for accidental damage and liabilities. They should also have a policy in place for if you are unsatisfied with their finished work - if you have a problem with poor workmanship, they should be willing to come back and correct their errors. Assessments for projects like this are usually free, so be sure to have several quotes to compare, including price breakdowns.
