Excavation of the driveway will be to minimum depth of 200mm , removing all vegetation, topsoil and exposing a suitable sub base. All manholes, gullies and drainage will be installed prior to the site being covered with sub base stone Only (Type 1 Mot) which is well compacted down with vibrating plant. No inferior Sub base Materials are used in the construction of our Driveways And Patios, The shuttering will then be positioned and fixed to the desired shape. All levels and falls will checked at this point, this is now the last opportunity for you to check the shape before the pouring of concrete.
The driveway will be constructed with a Minimum 100mm thick concrete slab, which is air entrained and has fibermesh reinforcement added at the batching plant. The concrete is tamped and troweled out prior to adding the colour and release Agent of your choice. The whole area is then printed, to the design you have chosen. When the driveway has been printed the site will be closed off using hazard warning tape prior to leaving. Responsibility for the driveway now passes to you, to prevent any damage to the wet concrete by arrival of guests, dogs, cats, postman etc...
The driveway will then be left for 24-48 hours to cure before the crack control joints are cut into the slab, (Please see FAQ Page Construction Joints). The driveway will then have the release powder brushed off, prior to cleaning with a power wash, which exposes the pattern imprinted concrete. Any minor flaws or imperfections will then be attended to prior to sealing the whole area, leaving you with a beautiful and pristine driveway. The whole site will then be cleared and left in a clean condition as found when first attending site.
