The crossover is the part of your driveway from the road up to your property boundary (ie they "cross over" the verge). Although the crossover is located on the verge which belongs to your local Council/Shire, it is usually up to each property owner to develop and maintain the crossover. In some areas there are rules about what you can use to construct your crossover or how much of your verge may be sealed - contact your local Shire or Council for more information.
We have constructed thousands of carparks over the years. From a single bay parking area, to several thousand square metres in commercial situations.
We pride ourselves on complete project management; from earthworks, basework, drainage, through to kerbing, asphalt/hotmix and linemarking - we can have a sandy patch transformed to a sealed carpark in a matter of days.
POTHOLES, TRENCHES, PATCHES, SPEEDHUMPS
Much of our commercial work involves patching potholes, trenches and other small sections of asphalt. We can also install speedhumps to slow traffic speeds in your carpark or entry way.
From patching gate rail installations, to cutting and replacing damaged sections; no job is too small - even a single pothole.
Hardstand surfaces can be a cost effective solution for many situations.
Unlike asphalt (which is a sealed surface) hardstand surfaces are not sealed and hence are affected by weather and traffic. However with a little care they can last many years, especially in residential situations. As they are not a sealed surface, you will see loose stones on the surface.
A hardstand surface must be installed prior to laying asphalt, although it is referred to as a basecourse in this situation. We use either roadbase or gravel for a basecourse, as the colour difference between the light grey and orange is irrelvant when they are being sealed over with asphalt.
Sprayseal is a process which involves spraying liquid bitumen on to the surface, then a layer of small stones (aggregate) is spread over the liquid bitumen and compacted using a vibrating roller. This is usually done twice to give two coats of liquid bitumen and aggregate. A suitable hardstand surface must be installed prior to the sprayseal being laid, just as with asphalt.
DRAINAGE AND SOAKWELLS
Adequate drainage is crucial on any driveway, carpark or yard area. This is achieved by having adequate fall over the entire area (whether it is hardstand or sealed with asphalt) so that water does not pool. Soakwells can be added on larger areas to allow the water to soak away below the surface.
We only use heavy duty concrete soakwells which are designed to last many years. These come in many sizes, and will be chosen based on the capacity needed for your particular job.
We complete earthworks jobs every day, usually in preparation for a hardstand or asphalt installation.
Our workcrew have extensive experience in earthworks, including difficult locations such as steep hills. We can also install soakwells, dig trenches, or level out areas.
Unfortunately we can't help with installing fencing.
