Jake and the Abbey Driveways team were excellent from start to finish. The response for a quotation was quick and the work was started earlier than the original estimated date. The team turned up on time every day, kept us informed of any necessary changes to the schedule and requested changes to the original plan were accommodated easily. The work was completed on schedule and we now have an excellent porcelain slabbed terrace. We would not hesitate to recommend Jake and Abbey Driveways for this type of work.

Abbey Driveways (Bournville) Ltd were recommended by a friend who was as delighted with their work as we have been. We wanted our time expired tarmac driveway and top aprons to be widened and resurfaced: this included rebuilding stone walls lining the driveway. We also wanted to extend a patio in the back garden to accommodate a new summerhouse, incorporating some paving stones left over when the existing patio was laid. We had sketched out visions for both which we discussed with Jake. We felt very confident in taking his advice on translating these into realty. The Abbey team were very well organised and very considerate and caring in their work. Their experience enabled them to make detail changes 'on the fly'. The results are to the highest standards and easily surpass our original visions. Communication was always very good. The start date can be a bit of a lottery in the winter, but Jake always kept us in the picture. Whilst the job was being done, any issues or options arising were discussed and quickly resolved. We are delighted with our revamped drive and extended patio. In fact we're almost trying to find another job for them! Thoroughly recommended

The whole process of contacting Jake for a quote and getting things done was smooth. We were kept informed about the start date and the guys worked the time period they said they would do. Always prompt and on time, neat with work and keeping the site clean, and extremely hard working as well as pleasant. Jake had personally been present daily whilst work was being done, and also since the drive had been complete has been a great help when we have needed. Fantastic team and we have received lots of compliments for the drive and have been impressed with the workmanship. We have gone on to recommend Jake and his team to friends and family. Definitely worthy of five star reviews a company providing a trustworthy service with great workmanship. Thank you.

The work done by Abbey driveways in creating our patio was of exceptionally high quality. The team of workers are professional, neat, efficient and very friendly, (unless you mention Aston Villa!). They are expertly led and produced an addition to our property which exceeded our expectations. I recommend them for work on driveways and paved garden areas without reservation.

This is the third project that Jake and his team have completed for us, 2 blocked paved driveways, and recently a porcelain patio along with artificial grass. Our new porcelain patio looks spectacular. Nothing was too much trouble, spoke to the lads on a regular basis so that they new exactly what we wanted, and they in turn made valid suggestions for us to consider. Professional from start to finish. All in all a perfect job well done!! Would highly recommend Jake..... and a special thanks to all the guys.

My elderly father in law was scammed out of at least £10k to have his drive blockpaved a couple of years ago by a cowboy firm (who didn't exist). A couple of months ago he was almost scammed again by someone knocking on his door and offering to tarmac the drive. I sourced Abbeydriveways, and Jake submitted an acceptable quote and completed the work to our great satisfaction in a couple of days. They were tidy, polite and communication was good. Would recommend Abbeydriveways as a reputable and reliable company based on our experience.

Amazing Patio and Driveway

We had a driveway widened with block paving and a large patio and path installed in the rear garden. Firstly, the workmanship and quality is amazing. We have used Abbey Driveways in a previous property, and thus would not have used anyone else. The whole team were amazing. Polite, hard-working, considerate ( we have young children ) and very kindly sorted a couple of non-patio things out while they were working. The job was planned to be 2 weeks and ran to time despite the odd day of heavy rain. In summary, amazing and would recommend without any shadow of doubt.

Work involved an area of block paving that enabled wheelchair access from the house to the patio area and a ramp to the garden - all of which were at different levels and there was a manhole to deal with as well. We are extremely pleased with the work. We appreciated the attention to detail, the thought that went into drainage and access and the speed with which the work was completed. The workforce all worked solidly, each playing their part, cheerful and getting on with one another and all polite and considerate. Talking to them, they all enjoyed their jobs and took a real pride in their work. Everything from the liaising with the suppliers and skip company to the detail of a slight raise on the side of the ramp to avoid the wheelchair falling off was thought through and executed perfectly. The area now looks stunning and is totally accessible. 100% recommend.

Jake and his team did a fantastic job of our rather oddly shaped driveway. We had paver edges including 3 paver aprons and then tarmac. From our very first meeting with Jake, we were impressed by his professionalism, knowledge and expertise. His team are very skilled at what they do and Jake was very good at communicating with us through every stage. Adrian always checked that everything they did was what we wanted and he also made several suggestions about what to consider to make it look better which we readily agreed to as he knows his stuff! The team were all very friendly and helpful and left the job clean and tidy. We were quoted a very fair price which included a recessed door mat which in the end, we decided not to go for and were very pleasantly surprised to find that this was deducted on the final invoice. We would have no hesitation in recommending Abbey Driveways to anyone.
