Consultation and Installation
The first step is to give our team a call to arrange a time and date for one of our specialists to pay you a visit. You’ll have a friendly, face-to-face chat about your requirements and we’ll also use this time to take measurements. We’ll provide you with friendly and impartial advice, and once we have everything we need, we’ll supply you with a FREE, no-obligation quotation.
There’s no pressure on your part to commit, but if you choose to proceed, we’ll schedule the installation at a time and date that’s convenient for you. Our professionals carry out all the installation work, and while some disruption is to be expected, we work in a way that keeps disruption to a minimum. While carrying out the work, our experts will pay you and your property the utmost respect.
No additional work will ever be carried out without first consulting with you. And once we’re done, we’ll ensure that any building-related mess is tidied away. We’ll finish by hosing down the surface, leaving it ready to use. Your new surface will be installed to exact specifications, ensuring that it is fully functional.
Because we only use reputable manufacturers, such as Marshalls, you can be assured that your new permeable paving will be of the highest quality. Not only that, but it will also be backed by a manufacturer’s warranty, for your peace of mind.
Guidance on The Permeable Surfacing of Front Gardens
On 1st October 2008, the permitted development rights that allow householders to pave their front garden for hard standing without planning permission changed.
Planning permission is now required to lay traditional impermeable driveways that allow uncontrolled runoff of rainwater from front gardens onto roads because this can contribute to flooding and polluting of watercourses.
If a new driveway or parking area is constructed using permeable surfaces such as permeable concrete block paving, porous asphalt or gravel, or permeable resin bound stone, planning permission is not required. The same is true if the water is otherwise able to soak into the ground or runoff into installed drainage.
The new rules will also apply where existing hard standings are being replaced. The new rules also apply to hard surfaces exceeding 5 square metres in area.
We are pleased to inform you that we are fully trained by Marshalls in the installation of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS). Where asphalt and macadam surfaces are required, these can also be successfully laid without the need for planning permission.
