Drive Problems
 
Hi

A year ago we had a new block paved driveway installed. After a few months, we started to notice a few dips appearing in the drive. A year later, there are quite a lot.

As I can't get hold of this person (typical, cash in hand job, call me a fool) I need to know is this normal, and if so, what is the easiest way of going around sorting the dips out?

Thanks
Dave

Sorry to say, it sounds like you are a victim of shoddy work. It would appear as though the base was not prepared properly. Were I you, I would make every effort to track the contractor down and have him rectify the problem as it is not a small one. To repair this properly you will have to remove everything and start over with a solid base.
Info on how it should be done is everywhere, Google 'installing pavers' for lots of articles.
