N.W.P.I.C can provide the discerning customer with a driveway, patio, path or BBQ area. Our unique paving system offers virtually no maintenance, oil, stain resistant and is available in a variety of colours and patterns.
Pattern imprinted concrete is a strong durable surface that lasts for years. It is our intention to design a driveway, patio, path to the highest specification and to meet the customers precise requirements, we install our product in the shortest timescale possible, eliminating the need to sub-contract.
Imprinted Concrete Driveways
The first part of the four part process is to send out a surveyor. He will find out exactly what the customers requirements are. The surveyor will design and produce a drawing to the customer’s requirements. On the survey boundary lines will be established, if there are any steps, drainage or manholes to be fitted, and most of all the colour and pattern. Initially you will be given a week commencing date, then the week before the customer will be given a firm start date, but obviously the weather plays a large factor.
The site is excavated and new hardcore is vibrated down to give a new sub-base.Any new manholes or drainage is fitted in place. Shutters are set to give you a new out line of your driveway ready for the concrete to be poured. The concrete is poured to a depth of 100mm on the main driveway/ patio and 75mm on pathways. The concrete is then leveled, tamped and floated. The chosen colour is applied then re-floated.
When the concrete is ready, release powder is applied to stop the mats sticking and to give it a secondary colour. PRINTING WILL THEN COMMENCE.
The driveway / patio will be left for 1 day then we will return to power wash the surface and insert the crack control joints. When the driveway is dry acrylic seal is applied.
