Day 1 : 05.11.2012
Preparation of surface for paving.
Putting on new pavement
Installation of effluent check alongside garage if needed.
Replacing the stones in Stairs with new bricks.
First, remove any turf, plants to a depth of about 15cm (6in) to allow room for the hardcore, mortar and paving slabs. Now barrow in a 10 cm layer of hardcore. Use a rake to distribute it, and even out any bumps. The rubble will form a good solid base for the patio and will stop you, and the site, getting muddy if it rains during construction.
Use a wacker plate to compact and level the hardcore. Although not essential, this stops the rubble moving around while you lay the slabs, making the base solid.
This job will be completed according to client’s specification.
Fix the tiles in the porch.
Power-wash stone walls in the front of the house.
