Answering Questions on Driveways and Paving in Croydon

We are able to answer any questions regarding groundworks, driveways and paving installations in Croydon, either face-to-face or over the telephone,or while we’re carrying out a free estimate at your home. If you’d like to know more about our role as a groundworks contractor for the Croydon area, some of the points below will be helpful.


I've been told Runc Groundworks install driveways. What’s the next step?

Contact us today to arrange an initial consultation and we’ll travel from our base in Horley to your home in Croydon to find out what type of surface you would like. All quotes are non-obligational and the groundworks contractor we assign to provide an estimate will go through the different types of driveways we can lay.


How long does it take to construct new paving and driveways?

Standard-sized paving projects and driveways at a semi-detached house in Croydon will usually take between 3-4 days to lay. We will be able to provide a more accurate assessment once we,ve seen the site. On bigger projects, Runc Groundworks will still be able to provide you with an accurate timescale for completion.


What sort of surface do you recommend?

We can supply block paving, flagstones, tarmac and many other materials, including pattern imprinted concrete, to our Croydon clients. As a groundworks contractor, we often find that surface and material chosen is dependent on the budget available to the customer.


How do you prepare the ground?

All driveways are excavated by one of our machines to a depth of up to 250mm to create a sub-base. This ensures block paving or any other material being laid at your Croydon property will have a suitably prepared surface which will last for many years without movement. Runc Groundworks always work to industry-specified depths.


Doesn't a groundworks contractor make a lot of mess?

We try to keep a close eye on the rubbish and waste we create when laying paving or driveways. Our groundworks team makes sure all debris is cleared up as we go so your Croydon property is kept clean at all times. Once a groundworks or installation job is finished, we load everything onto our vehicle and take it away for recycling.


What is kerb appeal?

Kerb appeal is the aesthetic representation new driveways and paving provide at your Croydon property when installed by our groundworks team.When passers-by see a new paving or driveway installation of high quality, the positive impression they get is referred to as kerb appeal. As a local groundworks contractor, we can advise on the best way to enhance kerb appeal (which can also make your home desirable should you choose to sell).


How long will it be before driveways and paving can be used after installation?

Most driveways and paving can be used instantly but we will advise you if there’s any need to stay off the surface. Because we use such defining standards for excavation and groundworks, we have complete confidence in the stability of the final finish.


Are your driveways guaranteed?

As a leading groundworks contractor covering Croydon and Surrey, all driveways, paving and other hard landscaping features created by our company are fully guaranteed. Drainage and soakaway features will be installed to industry guidelines so your driveway will last for many years to come without any concerns over pooling or standing water.
