Road base for large paving job

Road base for large paving job

You would need the roadbase as level as possible - its the best way to ensure a flat paving finish. Generally you would have about 50mm of compacted sand above the roadbase.

You should be using a penetrating sealer. They don't crack or peel and will last a lot longer. If you would like more info you can message me.

Totally agree that F82 is the way to go. Not because the concrete needs it, but becasue when it's stepped on it doesn't distort. And the concreters will step onit plenty!
