Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Exterior renovations Broadsands, Paignton
Churston Builders, the Torbay and South Hams Builder, completed exterior renovations including a block paved driveway and elevated decking project to a property in Lower Fowden, Broadsands, Paignton.
We were contracted to remove an existing concrete driveway and replace it with rumble pavers. To the rear of the property a large elevated decking project was planned that would be accessed from the rear kitchen entrance. A decking stairway would lead down to a slabbed area to complete the renovations across the full width of the property.
Work commenced breaking up the concrete driveway and removing the substantial amount of rubble. Once completed the surface was levelled and a 150mm sub-base layer compacted in two stages. This was followed with a 40mm sand laying bed, then the blocks. These are laid 15mm above level prior to final compaction. Once laying was complete the blocks were compacted and joints filled with kiln dried sand to seal the surface.
to the rear of the property the elevated framework was built along with the framework for the staircase. The decking was completed and all timber works matched in with corresponding balustrades and handrails. A small area of slab paving on a raised platform was constructed to complete the project.
