Having been in constant operation for no less than 21 years, Allison Paving is one of the premiere paving and landscape design services throughout Essex. We are more than happy to provide expert installations such as decking, fencing, block paving, patios, sealing and even artificial grass.

Still, it is important that we explain why we are different by answering some of the most common questions that our clients have had over the years. Let us go ahead and take a look at some of these queries as well as their answers.

How much will it cost to have a new driveway laid?

It really does depend on the size of the area you would like paved and what type of paving slabs you would like. If you would like us to give you a free no obligation quote, we can then give you more of an idea on how much it will be.

What is the best block paving to go for on a low budget?

Well, we have a wide range of block paving that will suit any budget. If you let us know what your budget is, we can then show you a brochure of all the different types of block paving ranging from the lowest price. It is then up to you to decide what you would like.

What happens if any of my blocks come loose or they start to sag?

Call us straight away if we were the company that laid your driveway or patio. We will then come to your home and see what the damage is. We will fix any blocks that have sagged or come loose by removing these, replacing the base layer and then re-applying them securely.

I want a quotation. Will I be committed to your services if I request a consultation?

Not at all. The specialists at Allison Paving are pleased to come to your premises and provide a no-obligation quotation. You can thereafter make a decision without any pressure.

I have just moved into a new Essex property and require landscaping services. What do you offer?

Some of our specialities include (but are not limited to) tree surgery, constructing ponds, the installation of decking, bespoke patios, garden walls and fences. Please speak with a representative for further details.

I require a substantial amount of brickwork and am unsure of what services your team provides. Can you list some areas of expertise?

We are well equipped to handle most of your brickwork needs. Some projects that we can accommodate include loft conversions, brick laying, maintenance and repairs, driveways, garages, renovations and general maintenance requirements.

I have an existing deck and am looking to supplement its appearance with other features. What else can you offer?

Besides decks, Allison Paving can also install gazebos, pergolas, arches, pavilions and arbours. Once again, these will seamlessly blend with the existing ambiance of your property.

I require an additional structure in my garden that matches my current fencing and decking. What choices do I have?

Some of the structures that we have constructed in the past are sheds, playhouses, summer houses and even log cabins. A representative will be pleased to address your needs in more detail.

I understand that your company also installs artificial grass. What are some of the main benefits in regards to this option?

Artificial grass provides numerous advantages over its living counterpart. Not only will it require no maintenance, but this type of grass is environmentally friendly. It is also great when used in locations with poor soil quality.

What types of patio designs do you offer?

Thanks to our experience within the industry, we are able to provide both standard and original designs. As with our brickworks, you also have the option to create bespoke and personalised patterns.

My driveway needs to be enlarged. Can Allison Paving help?

Over the years, we have completed numerous driveway extensions based around the requirements of the customer. This work will be seamlessly integrated into your existing patterns and materials. You can always visit our driveway extensions gallery to see some examples.

Are you insured to complete our project?

Yes, we are a fully insured company with liability insurance. We can show you all our certificates if you wish to see them.

How long will it take for you to complete an entire patio?

We cannot give you a definite time frame until we see how big your garden is and what you would like us to do with it. Some gardens can take a week while others will take longer. We would love to come round and give you a quote on your patio and then we can let you know how long it will take to finish.

Are there any types of guarantees associated with your services?

Yes. All of our work comes equipped with a comprehensive five-year warranty. However, we are also pleased to be able to provide our customers with an optional warranty of ten years upon request.

There is a good deal of uneven terrain on my property. Can you deal with this issue?

All of our block paving techniques employ a concrete base underneath the finished product. Not only is this important for aesthetics, but you can enjoy greater levels of stability on uneven surfaces.

Do you have any examples of previous landscaping work that you have performed?

Yes. We are proud to display a handful of designs and projects that we have completed over the years. Please refer to our landscaping gallery to view some examples.

I hope to have decking built within my back garden. Can you provide a design based upon my desires?

We are always happy to meet your demands and specific tastes. Our design team will survey your property and provide you with a detailed proposal. This enables us to address the current theme of your home while simultaneously tackling the project in a flexible manner.

I own a farm in Essex and have been searching for a company that can supply me with agricultural fencing. Can you accommodate this need?

Our technicians are quite familiar with this sector and can offer you a number of different options. Examples here can include timber posts, chain links and stock fencing. We will help you to determine which type is the best during our on-site survey.

My current driveway requires a professional sealant. Can Allison Paving help?

One of our specialities is the ability to offer turnkey sealing solutions for every Essex property. Utilising proprietary Smart Seal technology, you can extend the longevity of nearly any surface without sacrificing its beauty.

Can you install artificial grass within a home?

Yes. Some applications here include nurseries, play areas and rooms designed for pets. You can take a look at some of the additional applications by visiting our online artificial grass gallery.

What are some of the materials that you employ when building a patio?

Allison Paving utilises only the most trusted, beautiful and durable of stones. Some common varieties are travertine, slate, limestone, sandstone and granite. Additionally, these materials are available in a variety of colours, sizes and grains. You can rest assured that you will enjoy a one-of-a-kind patio.

Is there any way that I am able to read about the experiences of previous clients?

Allison Paving is happy to provide you with numerous client reviews to appreciate the quality of our services. Please take some time and read through our testimonials page to learn more.

I have had issues with patios cracking in the past. How can you address this?

Before the first stone is laid, our technicians will dig foundations as deep as 200 millimetres when required. A concrete base of up to ten centimetres will then be poured to provide superior levels of stability. Finally, kiln-cured sand is placed between the stones to ensure a tight fit.
