When choosing our paving contractors for car parks in Canterbury, you can feel rest assured all aspects are covered from the initial groundworks to the finishing line marking.


Drop Kerbs

Having a dropped kerb installed at your domestic or commercial property has many advantages. It allows for better wheelchair and mobility scooter access to cross the road and can be used in conjunction with a new driveway, such as a tarmac driveway, to provide a vehicle crossover. You must gain approval from your local council for drop kerbs. We can help with applications and work on behalf of Kent County Council to install them.


Surface Dressing

An excellent maintenance and preventive treatment, we use surface dressing to help prolong the life of roads in Kent. The process involves spraying a tar-like substance known as bitumen binder onto the road surface. Aggregates are then spread over this and the surface is rolled to begin the embedment process. The weight of vehicles driving over the road will eventually finish the process and create a new, smoother and improved road surface.


Private Estates

If your property is located on a private estate away from a main road, we have the expertise to construct a private road to access your Canterbury home or business. Our team use a range of materials and techniques to create stunning, bespoke access tailored to suit your property. We can also install a high-quality new driveway on your estate or repair an existing block paving, concrete or tarmac driveway.
