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.

Fantastic job

Jake and team did a fantastic job in replacing a very worn tarmac, quite steeply sloping drive, with block pave. When quoting, Jake highlighted drainage issues and recommended a solution, this had not been picked up by others who had already quoted. It was a relief to me to find someone I felt I could trust to do a good job and to provide the right advice. Jake kept me fully updated in respect of a start date and then throughout the installation. The property is a rental and I was not therefore on site during the work, this was no problem at all, I popped along each day to discuss any issues. I am over the moon with the end result, neighbours too have commented on the great standard of work and the hard-working team. I would have no hesitation in recommending Abbey Driveways (Bournville). Thank you Jake and team!

Jake responded quickly to the initial enquiry, with a site visit and quote. The team very busy so there was a few months wait for the work to start. The team lost a day due to heavy rain but they came on Saturday and did manage to complete on time. Jake was in regular attendance to check on progress and kept me informed at all times. Very pleased with the completion of the work and would definitely recommend Jake and his team.

Jake and his team replaced our tired frontage with blocked paving. The quoting was detailed for the work being done and included experienced advice covering regulations to be met. Work was carried out to the agreed schedule and budget and there was no request for a deposit, or payment, until we were happy with the completed job. Felt so comfortable with the firm that we went to work and left them to it. Jake contacted each evening to check all was progressing as we expected. All concerns raised were listened to and solutions suggested to areas we had not considered. We are delighted with a very professional job.

First Class service during a very difficult period

Jake and his team have been superb in converting our muddy grass and gravel front driveway and garden into a magnificent paved parking area and remodelled garden. They also converted a shabby old slippery wooden decking area in our back garden into a very smart stone clad patio. In both the front and back gardens they paid particular attention to the provision of drainage. Their standard of service and attention to detail is very high and sometimes hard to find in this day and age. They arranged their work schedule to suit our convenience at a very difficult time for everybody, with the main period of lockdown falling between starting the work and finally finishing to our complete satisfaction. However, during the lockdown they made sure we were left with fully functioning spaces. We thought that the quoted price for the work was very reasonable and although we were consulted with possible slight variations as the project progressed, the final cost was spot on budget. All in all we were totally satisfied with a superb project, both from the quality and expertise of the work and the relationship we established with Jake and his team.

Jake responded very quickly to our request for a quote, explained the different options and we agreed a way forward and a date for the work to be carried out. Due to poor weather the job started 2 days late, but Jake's team made up the time by working over the weekend. Throughout the job the team were friendly and helpful and paid meticulous attention to detail. Jake visited throughout to check that all was well. We are delighted with the end result and highly recommend Abbey Driveways.

From start to finish the work carried out by Abbey Driveways was excellent. We had to wait a while for work to commence as they are very busy which is due to the excellent workmanship. They started work on our agreed date and it was finished earlier than we expected. Communication was very good and Jake kept us fully informed during the work being carried out.

Jake and his team did a fantastic job, turning up exactly when they said they would. you will have to wait a while from placing order to work carried out (as they are very busy), but that is a good sign, and well worth the peace of mind that you getting a thoroughly reliable contractor. I unreservedly recommend this company.
