Creations Building & Landscaping proudly holds a reputation as a driveway specialist for domestic properties in Surrey and the neighbouring areas. As the first and last thing visitors to your home see, a brand-new driveway not only adds instant kerb appeal, it leaves a lasting impression. For property owners considering a move in the near future, new driveways installed by experienced professionals also represent a highly attractive feature for prospective buyers, especially in areas where on-street parking remains at a premium.
In our role as a driveway specialist, we undertake services in our hometown of Reigate as well as throughout Surrey and the neighbouring areas, including Coulsdon, Sanderstead and Warlingham.
Our vastly experienced team installs:
Our driveway services have earned us an array of positive testimonials and continue to play a vital role in our wider range of landscaping services.
Gravel & Shingle Driveways
These options provide numerous benefits for environmentally-friendly homeowners in Reigate, Coulsdon, Sanderstead, Warlingham and across Surrey. Not only do they create a natural, rustic look but, when installed by a driveway specialist, they alsooffer a permeable surface that rainwater can penetrate. This water drains directly into the earth, replenishing groundwater supplies.
Our time-served installation techniques ensure that excavation in no way interferes with buried services. In addition, we lay the appropriate groundwork to eliminate ruts and sinkholes.
Block Paving Driveways
This driveway option delivers stunning aesthetics at properties of any kind. With individual blocks available in a range of colours and shapes, we create unique designs to suit any personal taste and existing architectural style. In addition to their stunning appearance, block paving surfaces also offer outstanding longevity and durability.
As your chosen driveway specialist, we start by excavating the site down to a depth of at least 150mm below the damp-proof course of any adjoining buildings. For flat surfaces, we then factor in the appropriate fall for surface water management. We then lay a concrete foundation to a depth of 100mm, install edge restraints, lay and compact a sub-base of MOT Type 1 Roadstone or similar material before laying sharp sand. Finally, we lay the block paving in the desired pattern before compacting down into place.
Larger pavers also make for striking driveways in the Surrey area, from Reigate to Coulsdon, and from Sanderstead to Warlingham. However, we advise homeowners to take the advice of a time-served driveway specialist when making their decision on materials. Generally speaking, pavers come in two forms: manufactured from concrete and manufactured from natural stone.
Quite simply, not all pavers have been designed to carry the weight of a car, particularly those consisting of pressed concrete. Naturally, there are pavers available for this task, especially in natural stone, but they need to be of the required thickness and quality to offer optimal longevity. Here at Creations Building & Landscaping, we’re always on hand to provide impartial advice on paving materials.
