Do you do free quotations for patios? I live in Long Stratton – would it be best to call the Norwich, Diss or Wymondham Office. Many thanks.

Thank you for your enquiry. Yes we offer free, no obligation quotations. Please call us on 01953 607289 and we can arrange a suitable time for someone to call on you.

How much for 16 tonne natural gravel delivered to PE31 6TW.

Sorry but we no longer deliver gravel.

I have a driveway of 75 meters square is it sufficient to have just one rain gulley with 4″ pipe to main rain water drain sufficient to cope with flow?

It is difficult to comment without a site visit. However, current planning laws do not allow you to direct your rainwater into the main drains.

Do you do skip bags? If so, how much? I live in Norwich. Thanks.

We are not doing skip bags at the moment – sorry.

Due to the new drainage regulations on larger drive ways to you arrange for planning permission as I don’t want the permeable type of block weave.

We would build your driveway so that any excess water goes into a soakaway and therefore be within the regulations. For this you would need neither a permeable type block or planning permission.

Could you give us an indication of how much it would cost to seal our driveway please? The driveway was laid by yourselves in March 09 by Kevin.

This isn’t a service that we offer, so we are unable to give a guide price. We don’t recommend sealants as they tend to peel off in very hot or cold weather. They also need to be resealed every three to four years.

Can you advise if you offer any finance deals to spread the cost of a domestic driveway please?

We are unable to offer any finance deals at the moment.

Why do you use 60mm blocks?

We always lay a concrete base and we have found when using 50mm blocks they have a tendancy to crack after two or three seasons. We do not have this problem with the 60mm blocks.

How much deposit do you ask for?

We do not take any deposit. On most of our work we will not expect you to pay anything until the job is finished, however, we do take stage payments on larger projects.
