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.
