Driveway and Patio Repair Service. Does your driveway paving let your house down? Is it in need of repair? Is your patio sinking? Does it have loose edgings, uneven levels, puddles and has your manhole cover sunk? These are all common faults when your driveway or patio has not been constructed to the correct specifications. No matter how bad your driveway or patio may look, we can repair it. We offer a professional repair service for driveways, paths and patios.

Loose or moving paving may need to be re-bedded, but it is more important to rectify the cause of the movement. Simply packing mortar into a joint and hoping that this will stop the rocking or wobble is a waste of time - like sticking a plaster on a severed artery, it will only ever get worse.

Settlement and/or subsidence of the substrate layers, i.e. sub-grade, sub-base and bedding layer, is the most common reason for Block Paving failure which may be a result of:-

  • wrong type base material or insufficient base material
  • incomplete compaction of the substrate layers during construction
  • liquefaction of the bedding layer by water ingress
  • failure of restraining edges
  • loss of jointing material
  • loads greater than the driveway or patio was designed to carry.

Whatever the cause, it needs to be investigated and rectified before replacing or re-bedding the paving blocks.

We will take up as much of the pavement area as is required, stacking the blocks close by for re-use. We will then brush off any jointing sand adhering to the edges of the blocks. The exposed bedding layer can be rectified and a screed laid, ready for replacing the paving units.

Replace the blocks as required once the bedding is prepared, supplementing with square or replacement blocks, and reseal with dry jointing sand or mortar joints. The area of repair will need to be re-consolidated, preferably with a vibrating plate compactor, making it look like new.
