Are you looking for a local Block Paving Contractor near you?

Look no further as you have just landed on the right page for No I Best Block Paving Company.

It doesn’t matter what type of paving you are after, as we can do it, being the no 1 best block paving company.

You can have the standard block paving that you see in most gardens. It comes in a variety of colours that will suit your property.

You can also have the cobble type sets that usually comes in three sizes. This block paving usually cost about £10 more per square metre to buy than the standard blocks.

These type of blocks are made from coloured compressed concrete.

You can also have clay block paving which again cost more than the concrete blocks. There is a restriction on colours though.

Last but not least, you can have granite block paying, and as you have probably guessed these cost the most.

The preparation for any of these block paving areas is more or less the same. The depth of the blocks can vary depending on use.

If it is for commercial use the blocks will be a depth of 100mm at least.

For domestic use, the depth of the blocks is usually between 50and 60mm.

Different Patterns For Standard Block Paving

 

No I Best Block Paving Company

 

For standard block paving, you can have different patterns.

These are 90-degree herringbone or 45-degree herringbone.

What’s the difference?

Because having more cuts with 45-degree herringbone, means it will cost you more.

If your taste is slightly different how about basketweave? This is when we lay two bricks in the same direction followed by the next two at 90 degrees and so on

Why not go for a brick bond? This means we lay the block paving longways across the area. We then start the next row with half a block, then a full block so the joints don’t line up.

Just look at your house and you will see what I mean “if it is made of bricks that is”.

Ask them some of the following questions:

How long they have been in business?

How long have they been laying block paving?

Have they got jobs close by they have completed, that you can look at?

What is their specification for laying the blocks?

How deep are they going to excavate out from finished depth?

What will they use underneath the paving blocks?

What depth will the subbase be?

Will the price include taking the waste materials away?

How long will it take to complete your block paving job?

What is the starting date?

Asking these questions should elevate most problems you could have by not asking them.

Finding the right Block Paving Companies

Make sure you check out the length of time a block paving company or contractor has been trading. The longer they have been in business can be a good indication of quality work and installations.

Unscrupulous block paving contractors can leave a trail of unsatisfied customers, so you don’t want to be one of them.  Be very wary of paving businesses, if they over promise because they will probably under deliver.

So remember, it’s more important to do your due diligence for the very reasons stated above.

Block Paving Companies: The Local Knowledge

Referrals

Also if possible, get a referral from a family member or friend as referrals can be the best way of getting a professional expert to block pave your driveway.

Because if the local driveway installer is good at what they do, they will not mind giving you addresses of local work that they have undertaken.

Do not be afraid of knocking on the doors of where the block paving was laid. Why I can hear you ask? Because then you can ask the homeowner of what they thought of the service that they received.

We have been the only approved contractor for many of our clients ranging between 5 and 20 years plus. Not bad for a landscape company to brag about in today’s climate, hey!!

Landscaping Success Image

What is the secret formula to our success in our commercial landscape maintenance?

 

We put our success into working with companies down to being an ‘old school’ family run business that still prides itself with customer satisfaction.

 

When we go out on site to meet the clients we are always on time if not a couple of minutes early, but not to early. If we are going to be late because we have been held up by maybe traffic or roadworks, even if it is only five minutes we always ring the client to let them know. There is nothing worse than having people turn up late, we know as this is one of our biggest bug bearers.

 

When you meet the client make sure you confirm their name and yours.

So it would be something like “John Doe? Hi I am Ted Wosko A-Z Landscapes & Contract Services Ltd, nice to meet you” this is done to start making a connection between yourselves.

 

Once the conversation starts about the project, just listen to what the client is telling you and do not interrupt. If it is several different areas or types work then before you move on to the next one, that is the time to talk, confirming that you know what the client needs and expectations are.

Man Thinking and Listening Image

If at this point you have suggestions because you can see a better or alternative way of doing things this is the time to speak up. Saying something like “Is there any particular reason you would like it carried out like this or may we make a suggestion that we think would be a lot easier and you would end up with a better finished product”

 

Why are we doing this? Some people (and we have dealt with some but not many) do not intend to listen to what you have to say. By saying “May”, you are asking them for their permission to allow you to make suggestions.

 

By doing this we have never been refused the chance to make those suggestions, also you make more of a connection and build trust with that person. When you start making your suggestion you should say “in my experience I would do it like this”. You are confirming to the client that you are the expert and that is why you are there to help them.

It’s Funny because my very first meeting with Grayson Palmer from Duncan Clark and Beckett nearly resulted with me walking away from this prospective project. He was almost rude and when I did try to speak I was cut short but I thought ‘bite your tongue’.

 

At the end Grayson turned round and said “you have made some good, sound suggestions, I am not used to people I deal with making suggestions, usually they follow my directions. What you have said has made complete sense so before you quote for this work can we go over your ideas and suggestions and I would then like you to quote on all the ones that we agree on”.

 

This took me by surprise, but as you will read we were very successful with our quotation and this lead to us being awarded this very large project. It also led to Grayson and myself becoming very good friends and both respecting each other for our own particular knowledge.

We also carried out phase two of this project and one other as a nominated subcontractor, this was only because we do not generally do door and threshold alterations. Although I ended up making and helping the carpenter to do these alterations as he had not come up against wheelchair friendly thresholds before. In hindsight I think we would have been better off being the main contractor and getting our own subcontract carpenter.

 

As you have just read, we work well with companies and clients by listening and making suggestions and this is backed up by the amount of testimonials we have from our clients. Go check them out for yourself if you haven’t already by clicking
