DRIVEWAYS & DROPKERBS

Improve your properties kerb appeal

FINISHES

Gregorys supply and install a range of finishes from resin bound and tarmac to block paver and loose aggregates. We provide the full service from design to completion including groundworks edgings and drainage where required.

The completion of a driveway to an exceptional standard has a huge effect on a properties kerb appeal and ultimately, its value.

BLOCK PAVING

Block paving is available in a variety of forms to suit your requirements. Natural stone and clay pavers, in a range of colours and patterns, can be laid to create a decorative and load bearing surface.

Concrete pavers of various thicknesses are available for heavy traffic and commercial applications.

TARMAC

Tarmac laid to concrete edgings or kerbs makes a durable and smooth surface suitable for commercial and domestic applications. Tarmac is a comparatively lower cost solution with a long life.

RESIN BOUND SURFACING

A resin bound drive is laid in the same way as a tarmac drive except the final running course is a different material.

Crushed stone aggregates are mixed with a resin and spread to create a more attractive surface. The aggregate mixes determine the colour. The choice is wide and varied with a texture and colour to suit every property.

Resin bound surfaces are compliant with SuDS (sustainable urban Drainage Systems). When laid on an open surface asphalt and granular sub-base the surface water will seep through and back into the ground. Some surface water drainage may still be required.
COBBLES & SETS DORCHESTER DORSET

Cobbles & sets

Usually cut from sandstone or granite these ‘old style’ blocks can be used in a variety of patterns to create a hard wearing non permeable surface. Typically, they are laid with a mortar joint between each one on a solid mortar bed. This surface is very strong and as a result often used in entrances to larger paved or tarmac areas.

GRAVEL

Loose or self-binding aggregates can provide a stable and attractive surface when used correctly. Part of the appeal is the sound it makes when driven over. The announcement of the arrival of guests wanted or unwanted is a useful security feature for a rural property.

When laid at a suitable depth over a properly compacted base, loose aggregates can remain stable for many years.

For extra durability we recommend using ground reinforcement. These interlocking cellular grids are made from recycled plastic and are laid onto the base material before being filled with aggregate. This surface treatment has high load bearing capacity and is, like the resin, SuDS compliant.
