Do you have an outdoor area that experiences a high level of traffic? Sick of looking at that worn dirt track across the lawn? In many cases, paving provides an excellent, low cost solution. The team at JRC Paving offers a wide range of paving services that are sure to address your needs – whether you need to pave for practicality, aesthetics or both.
When it comes to quality paving, there are two things that need to be considered: the type of pavers used, and the base. We can work with a broad range of different materials, from standard brick through to sandstone, granite and even concrete paving. With such a wide range of materials on offer, you are sure to find an affordable paving option that complements your home and the surrounding landscape.
Paving is more than just laying bricks– and for this reason it is important to ensure you enlist the help of experienced paving contractors. A good base is essential, as it allows for drainage, ensures the pavers are level and helps to stop them moving about over time. We ensure this step is carried out properly, so you can enjoy even pavers for many years to come.
If you’re not in the market for a completely new driveway, we may still be able to assist you with other projects. For instance, do you need your current driveway repaired? Do you have a cracked or damaged paver? If you have any small job or repair you think might fall under our expertise, give us a call and we can make a time to come out and have a look.
Although Perth has a relatively dry, Mediterranean type climate, rainfall can be heavy at times and quite unpredictable and the stormwater runoff can cause erosion in gardens, destruction of paving and walkways and extensive damage to building foundations.
What is a Soakwell?
A soakwell is an integral part of any Perth home or business as it prevents the property from flooding after a storm or any type of overflow. A soakwell is an underground tank and collects rainwater diverted through pipes and disperses it into the soil. They’re installed underground, and come in a variety of sizes. Choosing the right size, burial depth and placement is crucial to peak performance, so it’s typically best to work with a professional for best results.
Why you need a soakwell
Prior to the construction of a home or building, rainwater would evenly distribute across the soil where it will later disperse. However, after construction, rainwater is no longer evenly distributed because of the introduction of non-porous surfaces such as a roof, paving or driveways. This means that the bare soil around those structures have to absorb a greater, more concentrated amount of water than it would in their absence. This can contribute significantly to problems like flooding and soil erosion.
Soakwells are also vitally important to maintain the integrity of a building’s foundation. If rain water sits against cement or concrete foundations of structures, it can lead to the sagging of the building/structure and the deterioration of the foundation.
There is legislation surrounding soakwells in Perth, it states that all stormwater which lands on a property, is to be retained on the same property. This essentially means that water from a property may not flow onto public, neighbouring or any other properties.
Common signs of a damaged or inadequate soakwell;
Sinking or subsiding paving
Flash flooding in your garden
Overflowing of water from stormwater grate
Water overflowing from the down pipe fitting
There are many different types of soakwells available, we install vertical leaching soakwells (drywells). These tanks have a 200-litre capacity and can be joined together to accommodate larger areas of roof space. One tank is suitable for 30sqm of roof or paving space. They are good for tight spaces as they drain 50% quicker than concrete ones. They are strong and fully trafficable and, when installed correctly, will take 20 plus tonnes of direct pressure per square metre.
All of our soakwells come with a 10-year warranty guarantee.
“Jerome was professional and easy to deal with. He listened to our ideas and made suggestions on what he thought would enhance the project, as well as keep our budget costs down. Due to the fact our land slopes and we were trying to marry the new pavers into existing pavers I had a number of queries for Jerome. He always got back to me straight away and could accommodate what we thought would be difficult. For example, the new pavers we sourced were not as high as the existing pavers. Jerome worked around this problem by building up the sand levels in sections.
Jerome and his team arrived when they said they would and did a great job. We are very happy with our new driveway and have had several positive comments from neighbours.
We have no hesitation in recommending Jerome Rule to anyone who wants good quality workmanship and an organised and reliable contractor.”
