PRODUCTS USED:

CORE DRIVE 50-35 Gravel Stabiliser

PROJECT BRIEF:

 REFURBISH AN EXISTING DRIVEWAY WITH A POROUS GRAVEL SURFACE

The client had been experiencing issues with drainage that was creating dips and waterlogged spots on their driveway. The clients existing driveway had become uneven, and specifically sunken in multiple areas due to a lack of drainage. A free draining surface was required, one which remained level and ensured that stone migration was mitigated – as that was a prior issue of the existing driveway before.

PRACTICAL SOLUTION:

REPAIR AND REPLACE SUBBASE AND LAY CORE DRIVE 50-35 GRAVEL STABILISER

We advised using our CORE DRIVE 50-35 gravel stabiliser to ensure that the surface would be porous, thus fixing the drainage issue that the surface had before. By replacing the subbase with a type 1 limestone base, and laying down a grit bedding layer, we ensured that the subbase itself would be as porous as possible, whilst still providing a level surface to lay the CORE DRIVE 50-35 gravel stabiliser on. The grid was then filled with a 10-12mm angular stone to leave an even covering over the gravel stabiler. Starting from one corner and working your way out, the sheets were connected using the clipping mechanism to form one large matrix across the area.

ADVANTAGES:

“WE ARE OVER THE MOON WITH IT, A JOB CARRIED OUT SEAMLESSLY THANKS TO THAT GRAVEL STABILISER” – Mr Page

This solution is the perfect answer to the brief the customer required. Drainage was a longstanding issue that had caused major dips within their driveway, proving hazardous to walk and drive over. The CORE DRIVE 50-35 gives this driveway a new lease of life, and will keep it looking brand new for years to come.
