Dig out old driveway, including tree stump, then widen and resurface the driveway and pavement area.

"Martin and his team did a fantastic job of widening and resurfacing our driveway. It was done in a very quick time and was left in a very clean and tidy condition.
We are very pleased with the work and the end result, many of our neighbours have commented on the professionalism and how good our driveway looks, some have even asked for Drivemaster's contact details and we are more than happy to recommend them."

driveway monoblock great service from Martin and his family from start to finish they were all fantastic

"From the first quote, Martin came across as knowledgable and professional.
When we decided what we wanted Martin dropped off samples of stone.
when we agreed a start date and time that's when they turned up bang on time.
They worked well as a team and all seemed to know what they were meant to be doing.
The finished drive looks great.Martin and his team of family members were top notch from start to finish.

Clearance of front garden, paving slabs and border at side of house. Full monoblock of front garden area for parking and monoblock path on side of house.

"Everything looks better than expected and I wish I had done this sooner!

I would commend Martin and his team highly for a job well done, being courteous and being very tidy on what I can only imagine is a very dusty job.

If you are thinking of using Drivemaster for a job, stop thinking and book them, you will not be disappointed."

Customer Review
 
The treatment of the area between the front of my mid-terraced house and the pavement was replaced by monoblock, leaving a small gap at one side to maximize the aesthetics of the pattern and the area as a whole. The debris from the previous treatment was uplifted. The previous treatment included the following: a driveway and path with concrete slabs surrounded by gravel and lots of weeds; two thick concrete blocks supporting the front step; my half of a square of cracked concrete surrounding a large circular metal access point; and an L-shaped border area at the top of the driveway, separated from it by concrete edging, one of whose blocks was shared by the neighbouring property.
 
Cost: £1750
 

"Martin and his team are a solid, hard working, down to earth, friendly, considerate group of people whose sense of vocation for the work they do is inspiring to behold.

I was particularly impressed by the thoroughness of the preparation stage and also the care and attention to detail in the way the monoblocks have been laid.

They did not need access to the house itself so I was able to go out as normal while they got on with the work.

When the work was finished the whole area was tidy and all rubbish had been removed.

In terms of arranging the work, Martin was able to come round in the early evening of the day after my initial phone call, to discuss what needed to be done. He gave me a quote for the total charge then and there, after taking some measurements, and I was happy with that figure so I accepted his offer to do the job.

We agreed to use email for further communication since I usually have the telephone unplugged since otherwise I would constantly be in a state of extreme nervous tension in case it suddenly starts ringing. I was very relieved that Martin had the tact to accept my communications preference without asking for any explanation or making any comment.

We agreed a date for the work to commence via email and Martin and his team did indeed arrive to start the work first thing on the morning of that day.

Between the first meeting and the date when work was to commence I had been going back and forwards in my mind about whether or not the border area should also be included since I had initially assumed that there would be no way to get rid of the concrete edging, but when I thought about it a bit more I remembered that Martin had given me a subtle hint when he first came round that it actually would be possible.

I had let Martin know of my indecision and so before work commenced on the first day we discussed some options for the border area, and I decided that it should also be included. Fortunately Martin also noticed that the concrete around the metal cover, which had been mostly obscured by gravel when he came round the first time, was cracked, and so he convinced me that this should also be dealt with and that the monoblocking should continue round my half of the cover and right up to the wall of the house, where the presence of a large concrete block had again limited my original expectations of what would be possible.

Martin gave me a revised figure which was not much more than the original, so I agreed to this revised plan of work, and I went inside while they got on with it.

The work went according to schedule, and on the afternoon on the day it was finished, Martin, who had been away for most of that day doing something else, came back to inspect the final result and receive the payment, which I made by cheque to Drivemaster.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Drivemaster to anyone considering this kind of work. I think we are very fortunate to have them in Dundee.

"The team consisted of Martin, his father John, his son, son-in-law and son's friend. They are all very pleasant and as a team, carried out the project in a very efficient manner.
I also mentioned or section of broken fencing that I had and asked could they replace this, fully expecting it to be done at a later date. The next morning they turned up with a section of fencing, cut it to suit, and installed it there and then.
This is an excellent company.
