First impressions count, and a new driveway for your property will certainly help you create a good impression right from the start. A correctly designed and installed driveway will last for many years, and combined with edging and landscaping of the surrounded area, will help you make the best use of your outdoor spaces.
All pathways and driveways Lothian Paving build for our customers come with a 5 year warranty so you can order from us with complete confidence.
Block paved driveways have become very popular because they look good and are very low maintenance. You can choose from a variety of paving styles, colours and patterns to suit your taste and budget, so a block paved driveway can be truly customised to your preferences.
When commissioning a construction of monoblock driveways, Edinburgh customers have a choice of concrete, granite or natural sandstone blocks. Concrete pavers are relatively least expensive and offer a huge choice of shapes and sizes and will still last at least 20 years.
Natural stone paving is becoming increasingly more popular and affordable, and we can provide numerous natural stone paving options ranging from granite setts to natural sandstone blocks to Indian stone paving, and even traditional cobbles. These products come in a wide range of colours as well as traditional blocks of stone.
Natural stone paving comes in a choice of many stylish patterns including: coursed, random, fan, bogen and European so you can have the look you really want. Some of these layouts require time and highly skilled workmanship to work properly, but the initial investment results in a driveway which, when properly laid, is visually attractive, extremely durable and very low-maintenance.
Resin bound gravel driveways and resin bonded driveways are both a form of epoxy resin based surfacing where, essentially, coloured or decorative gravel or aggregate is either scattered over a layer of ‘’glue’’ (resin bonded driveways) or mixed with resin binder (resin bound driveways). This type of surface is normally laid over an appropriate base, usually concrete or tarmac.
Properly laid, resin driveways are extremely hard wearing and can be made into low-maintenance, visually attractive surfaces with a huge range of colours and patterns available to choose from. ‘’Properly laid” is a key term here, because this type of surface must be fitted by trained professionals using correct materials. Lothian Paving specialists are trained to professionally lay resin bound driveways, so you can be confident that you will get a top-quality surface that will look good and retain its functional properties for years.
Our kerbs and edgings provide the perfect finish for your new driveway. Suitably chosen kerbs and edgings give additional structural support and can also function as a decorative feature to complement the overall look.
Lothian Paving can install kerb drop for you, so you can have a smoother, easier access to your property, saving the wear on car tyres and suspension, and allowing cyclists or pushchairs to enter comfortably. Please note that altering the pavement outside your home will require a permit from your local council. The councils require that company that carry out kerb drop works are authorised to do so and have appropriate road-works certification, which Lothian Paving have obtained. We successfully built many kerb drops that meet local authority standards and complete the driveways we have designed for our customers.
Most driveways require some form of drainage to ensure efficient water run-off, especially in the typical Scottish weather conditions.
Lothian Paving provide a comprehensive driveway constructions service and this will include, if and when necessary, designing and building a drainage system suitable for your new driveway, or updating existing drainage.
Our plumbers are familiar with Edinburgh’s drainage systems and we are also able to offer complete drainage solutions for your whole property, whether unclogging blocked drains, surveying or building drainage.
