Shingle driveways are still very popular and will continue to be. They are still cheap to create and the security aspect is still favored by those who are in remote areas. One major disadvantage is the shingle has the ability to hold metal objects vertical and these will eventually find their way into the tyres in your car.
If you want to seal a driveway or parking lot that is several years old and has already begun to deteriorate, the paving contractor must first repair the damaged asphalt. This may involve filling any holes or cracks in the pavement, as well as smoothing out rough areas. It’s also a good idea to clean up any oil stains before applying sealcoating, as once they’re sealed in, those stains are permanent. In general, you should apply a new coat of driveway sealer every two to three years. Resealing and minor repairs will almost always be less expensive than having to completely replace the pavement.
When you go to choose your block paving, you will want to find a color that matches the rest of your house. The pavers who are professionals at paving will be able to give you ideas of what type of color should go in front of your home, and which one will stand out the most when it is placed in.
Two Set up your level line. You will need to knock 2 timber or steel pins into the ground, one at the house end of the driveway and the other at the pavement side. Next, attach a tight builder’s nylon line at what will be the finished height of your block paving, this line should be approx 10mm higher than the pavement and 150mm lower than the damp proof course to allow for final compaction of the block paving.
