Driveway/Patio Repair Godalming, Guildford & Across Surrey
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, or 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, here at Surrey Drives & Forecourts we can repair it. We offer a professional driveway/patio repair service across Godalming and the general Surrey county as well as surrounding regions.
Loose or moving paving may need to be re-bedded, however 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 unfortunately a waste of time - similar to sticking a plaster over a severed artery, it will only 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 can be a result of:
Whatever the cause, the damage needs to be investigated and rectified before replacing or re-bedding the paving blocks.
Surrey Drives & Forecourts 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 then be rectified and a screed laid, ready for replacing the paving units.
Finally we'll replace the blocks as required once the bedding is prepared, supplementing with square or replacement blocks, then 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.
