Paving Articles

Read through some of our recent paving blog articles below.

We have published a number of articles on paving to assist you to make an informed decision when tackling your paving. Please feel free to contact us if there is anything that you would like to know more about or advice concerning your paving. We are in Alberton Gauteng South Africa but are available for free advice to anyone anywhere in the world.

Two of the main areas which we are asked about on a regular basis is aesthetics and price and the two can easily be accommodated to fit your budget with a little insight and knowledge. You can send us pictures of the area which you would like to pave to allow us to get a feel for the suggested area and again give you free advice.

Often we will give a couple of alternatives to allow for your budget to fit into the suggested brick or flagstone selection. Make sure that your installer is reputable and that you are able to see previous paving done by them and ask for one or two clients that you are able to contact in order to validate them and their work. Everyone thinks that they can install paving but if the base work is not done correctly the paving will fail in a very short time.

Please read a couple of our articles to be more in touch with paving selections and alternatives. Click on a suggested link below to get a feel for one of our many paving articles.

Broken Brick cobble repaired

We are currently busy with a 350m2 driveway in Bryanston that needed to be uplifted and then repaired. Many home owners don’t realise that their existing paving can be re-used and the driveway or pool area can once again look good at a fraction of the price of new paving. There is a lot of work removing the old grouting from the paving but the end result both from an aesthetic and cost point of

Repair and save

Often home owners replace their paving when in fact they could save a fortune by getting the existing paving uplifted and relaid correctly. Have a look at the condition of your existing paving bricks and you might find them still in perfect condition and only a few are broken or damaged. We normally work on replacing roughly 15% of the existing bricks due to damages but that means 85% of your existing bricks are re-used

Rubble is costly

There are so many different types of extras that builders don’t tell you about until you are neck deep in debt and trying to finish off the project.

There are many home owners that don’t know that it is possible to repair a driveway or pool area by using the same bricks. Normally the edge beam on existing paving is difficult to re-use but most of the rest of the bricks can be used again to assist in reducing the cost. The new bricks will age and get dirty in a relatively short time and then hardly be noticeable. We often save our

Lapa entertainment area

            Lapa and lapa repairs There has been a spate of lapa repairs recently and mostly due to poor installation. Even though most lapa companies buy the grass and the poles from the same suppliers, it is the shoddy workmanship that comes out after a year or so. We often get calls to repair Lapas after a heavy downpour more so when there is a heavy hailstorm. I must add
