Paving and Tarmac Contractors in Horsham
Covering the Sussex Area

Welcome to the website of R.J. Skinner, a trusted company of paving contractors located in Horsham. Covering the whole of Sussex, we specialise in the installation of driveways, patios and private roads. We also operate as tarmac contractors with a full range of surface dressing services. Customers can use us for premium material installations, such as block paving from Marshalls, or for cost-saving resurfacing projects which make use of tarmacadam and tar-and-chip systems.

Established in 1970, we trade as a small business and deliver a start-to-finish service with a promise to always go the extra mile when we need to. R.J. Skinner believes in the value of customer care, and makes attention to detail the cornerstone of its completed projects.


Our paving contractors and tarmac contractors have 30 years of combined experience. We adopt a friendly approach to business, and this explains why so many homeowners in the Sussex area choose us to install driveways, patios and pathways. Because our company has passed down from father to son, we’re a genuine second generation family-run business that truly understands and appreciates the value of its local customers and clients.

From Horsham and into the surrounding areas, we set the benchmark for excellence with our block paving and tarmac installations. R.J. Skinner also specialises in groundworks and provides a full range of surface preparation services.

The paving contractors at R.J. Skinner create stylish driveways for Sussex homes where our customers can leave their cars at night without having to find a parking spot on the street or worry about the risks of theft and accidental damage. Block paving is a perfect material for driveways and a popular choice with our customers because it offers so many different design permutations. We do, however, use a wide range of materials on our installations.

We trade as tarmac contractors too so customers can opt for driveways in tarmacadam or, if they prefer, in gravel. Our company also offers a practical driveway repair service.

Let our paving contractors create a vibrant outdoor space for relaxing, socialising or firing up the barbeque. R.J. Skinner specialises in patio installations and uses your choice of block paving or traditional flagstones during construction. Most homeowners in Horsham, and many of those in the surrounding areas, opt for patio installations next to French, patio or sliding doors to extend their living space.

A patio links indoor and outdoor space perfectly, and provides our customers with a vibrant social hub for enjoying from the springtime all the way through to the late summer months.

Private Roads
Because some locations in the region are more rural than others, landowners often use our tarmac contractors for the construction of private roads. Typically, this type of work involves an access route between residential, farm or estate properties and a nearby public road. We can, however, build private roads across land to connect individual properties and plots. R.J. Skinner uses tarmac for private roads because of its durability and its ease of installation.

Private road installation services include excavation, groundworks and surface compaction.
