Driveway & Patio Repair Services Guildford, Farnham, Camberley,



There are a range of common issues/problems which eventually become evident when your driveway or patio has not been constructed well and to the correct paving installation specifications. These can include;


  • Sinking in parts or the driveway or patio
  • The occurrence of loose edgings
  • Clearly visible uneven levels
  • Puddles forming
  • Your manhole cover may have sunk


Loose or moving paving may need to be re-bedded, however it is more important to rectify the cause of the movement.


Settlement or subsidence of the substrate layers, for instance sub-grade, sub-base and bedding layer, is the most common reason for block paving failure. This can be as a result of:


  • Wrong type of base material used, or insufficient base material.
  • Incomplete compaction of the substrate layers during the initial construction.
  • Liquefaction of the bedding layer caused by water ingress.
  • Failure of restraining edges.
  • Loss of jointing material.
  • Loads greater than the driveway or patio was designed to carry.


Whatever the cause, the damage needs to be investigated and rectified before replacing or re-bedding the paving blocks.


No matter how bad your driveway or patio may look, Hedges Paving can repair it. We offer a professional driveway/patio repair service around Guildford, Farnham, Camberley, as well as the general Surrey region.


Hedge Paving will take up as much of the pavement area as is required, stacking the blocks and keeping them at hand for re-use. We will then brush off any jointing sand adhering to the edges of the blocks. The exposed bedding layer is then rectified and a screed laid, prepared and ready for replacing the paving units.


Finally we will replace the blocks as required once the bedding is prepared, supplementing with square or replacement blocks, then reseal with dry jointing sand or mortar joints. The area of repair will need to be re-consolidated, preferably with a vibrating plate compactor, enabling it to look like new.


If you have a patio or driveway repair requirement contact Hedges Paving today and one of our repair specialists will be happy to assist.
