How long does it take to install paving?

When you are thinking about redoing your driveway, paved paths or paved patios, it’s important to consider how much base preparation is required. Ground preparation including excavation work means that you need to allow more time and money for a paving project.

To sum it up, the time to install paving depends on the size of the driveway or path, and on how much extra preparation is necessary. Resurfacing an existing driveway, for example, will not take as long if the existing base is reusable. However, levelling out uneven ground, dealing with drainage issues or creating a brand new base for a new driveway design can take significantly longer.

The experts at Zones Tauranga offer a free one-hour consultation at your site, and following the initial briefing meeting they will be able to give you a general idea around timelines and a budget indication range. Once a design concept has been created and reviewed with you, a fixed price quote and a contract outlining the scope of work can be prepared. Then the work can start – from start of installation through to completion. Cleaning can also be part of the package.

How much does paving cost?

The installation costs for driveways, paths and patios will depend on the size of the area and the complexity of the installation. Stabilised gravel is a cost-efficient material that doesn’t break the bank (with the base this can cost as much as concrete to lay). Other materials, such as designer pavers or concrete flagstones might cost more, but can give your home the desired look while being hardwearing and durable.

What are the best paving materials in Tauranga?

One of the most common materials in Tauranga is concrete paving. It’s a non-permeable surface, which means it’s a solid surface that water cannot penetrate. Hence, it’s important to have a good design that allows water to run off and drain effectively whilst considering the impact this will have on your overall site non-permeable coverage. In terms of the look and feel, there are many ways to customise a concrete driveway, patio or BBQ area with different colours and aggregates that can be added to the concrete. It’s a hardwearing and low-maintenance material. Because it is a non-flexible paving option, it’s important to include construction joints into the driveway to allow for cracking. Consider also whether a non-slip solution such as aggregate is required, which also provides interest and a non-slip surface.

Unit pavers or natural stone paving placed on a sand-bed are a flexible paving method that can incorporate stunning paving designs. Firth paving is popular and comes in a range of different paver sizes and colours in Firth’s classic and designer collections. Firth also offers a permeable range of pavers as part of their EcoPave range. Pavers are very durable but they do require on-going maintenance such as weed control.  

Stone paving is at the top end of the budget range and provides a timeless solution to any project. Material selection will vary depending on the proposed use and maintenance. Stone is typically laid over a concrete base and mortared into place. It is therefore a non-flexible and non-porous solution requiring planning of expansion and construction joints as well as consideration of total site coverage.

If you need to adhere to strict ground cover regulations or you want to create a softer, more natural look for your outdoor area, grass or stabilised gravel might be just what you’re after. Natural Paving stabilising mats are an easy and affordable way to keep gravel or ground shell paving contained and make it more stable. The team at Zones can help you decide which materials are right for you. They will also ensure that all council rules and regulations are met, and that all permits are obtained where required.
