Driveways | Creating the Ideal Surface for Your Property

At Parklane Driveways, we recommend that you make a clear decision on what you want your new surface to achieve. With a clear vision in mind, we can advise on the best materials for your driveway, whether it’s in Abingdon, Aylesbury, Banbury, Bicester, Carterton, Didcot, Kidlington, Oxford, Wantage, Witney or the surrounding regions.

What Are the Benefits of a New Driveway?

Eventually, driveways in Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire will begin to degrade – sometimes due to age, weather, or a combination of both. When this happens, the surface will start to crack, suffer from weeds and algae, and you might notice potholes that only expand as time goes on. A new installation will remove these problems entirely, giving you a vibrant landscape that supports your vehicle and prevents accidents due to surface issues.

Driveways can also impact the value of your property. In addition, the work reduces the need for repairs, so you pay less in the longer term.

What to Expect

Some property owners choose block paving, while other select pattern imprinted concrete, available in a range of finishes. In either case, our paving contractors follow certain steps to guarantee the best results possible.

Excavation – We start by digging out the area, ensuring any finished level is 150mm below the damp proof course of any adjoining buildings. Our team will also add a fall where appropriate.

Sub-Base Installation – Once the fall and drainage system is taken care of, we then lay a hardcore sub-base. The materials used depend on the site circumstances, forming a durable layer that we then compact with a vibrating plate.

Screeding / Concreting – For pattern imprinted concrete driveways in Abingdon, Aylesbury, Banbury, Bicester, Carterton and the nearby areas, we lay wet concrete to a depth of 90-100mm before levelling it off. If you opt for block paving, we lay sharp sand and a second layer, which we then level to suit the appropriate fall.

Surface Installation and Sealing – Our paving contractors start laying block paving at the bottom of the slope. We then fill in the gaps with kiln-dried sand, before compacting for the proper finish. For pattern imprinted concrete in Didcot, Oxford, Wantage, Witney and the surrounding regions, we lay mats over the surface and stamp it with the chosen design. We then seal all surfaces for lasting quality.
