WELCOME TO MK BROOKES DRIVEWAYS

Block Paving Patios & Drives  

The most vital part of any block paving project is the preparation and we ensure that this vital part of the project is carried out to the highest standards.

Remember the cost of the materials can be a small part of the overall cost and it is worth ensuring that it is carried out correctly by MK 


MK Brookes ensure that correct drainage systems when required are built at the same time as the driveway.    Theres no point in having a new driveway built if it causes dangerous puddles of water or sinks when the weight of a vehicle is placed on it!

Whats more by having it done by professionals you wont have to have it all dug up again later!  as Government environmental regulations have now made it law that specifications for drainage are conformed to

We ensure that all groundwork is carefully prepared to the precise levels required and especially compacted using specialist machinery.

Precise Brick Cutting

Unlike many installers we have learnt that the most pleasing installations require the highest level of finish achievable.

An example of our aim for perfection is shown in every detail, for example all our cutting of blocks is carried out using a blade rather than a block splitter as used by some companies. This achieves a much neater and straighter edge.

On the left is an example of a razor machine cut with the latest technology cutting machines as used by MK Brookes. On the right is how many companies cut blocks by hand giving  rough edges to the blocks which spoils the  finish
 
 
 
MKBrookes Driveways have invested in high quality brick cutting machines  machines that give perfectly cut bricks which make the all the diffrence to the quality of your driveways. Beware that many paving installers do not machine cut the bricks and the end product is inferior
 
 
The photograph above shows the way many driveway installers  cut the bricks by just breaking them  in half . Notice the rough edges and bear in mind that this will both show on the driveways overall quality as well as reduce durability of the driveway
 
 
 Now Compare the quality of our expertly machine cut bricks!
 

 
 
As you can imagine this means the edges of the  driveway fit perfectly and look neat...even on curved edges!

Before and after photos
 
Be very wary of many companies who show you pictures on their  website which were not layed by them!

Many companies take images from catalogues and magazines and you might be mistaken for believing they carried out the work.

We advise you to always ask for proof that the company whso be dissapointed that their block driveways were not up to the standard shown

Laying out materials
 
The mixtures of compounds used have to be correct for your sub soil and the types of blocks used.
 
 Prior to excavation we use the latest technology as shown in the photograph above to locate electical cables, water mains, gas pipes, Virgin and BT cable s. We use lazer technology to ensure accuracy of levels. Then all materials need to compacted by heavy duty machines
