Gravel driveways make a beautiful and natural alternative to other types of driveway surfaces like paving and imprint concrete.
At Co-Operative Contractors LTD, we only install industry approved and natural stone products on our gravel driveway installations in Basildon. As with all natural products there is always a little variety in the colour of the stones.
We provide samples of stone so you can have an idea over the finished look of your driveway. If you would like to know more or see some of our quality work, give our team of gravel installers a call today. Our team would love to hear from you.
Our standard procedure to installing a gravel driveway is by first replacing the existing driveway area. If there is currently only a base, we will grade the base off to ensure a solid foundation for laying the new surface. It is very important that the base is permeable since the only way of draining water off the driveway is down through it.
When the new foundation is prepared, we will machine roll and compact it, heavy duty permeable membrane sheeting is laid over the base to stop any weeds and keep a barrier between the base and the decorative stone. The final stage is applying the chosen gravel finish to the driveway.
Every project is handled to the same high standard and we dispose of our waste in accordance with Basildon Council. We provide other driveway choices including block paving in Basildon and tar chip driveways.
