At R.J. Skinner, we combine the roles of paving contractors and tarmac contractors to give our Sussex customers something that we believe to be very important – freedom of choice. Those on a budget can opt for driveways and private roads in tarmacadam or tar-and-chip surfaces. Homeowners with a little more to spend can have driveways, patios and pathways laid in block paving from Marshalls, an industry-leading brand in the UK since 1990.
Located in Horsham, R.J. Skinner covers all surrounding parts of Sussex and offers a start-to-finish service. We like to offer a certain amount of flexibility with our services so we include gravel driveways in our installations to support our work with tarmac and block paving.
This page takes a closer look at our product range from Marshalls, and explains what we can do for you as the area’s most trusted team of paving contractors. We also compare the use of block paving to surfaces laid by our tarmac contractors. In doing so, R.J. Skinner clarifies the benefits of both and helps you to make exactly the right decision for your Sussex home.
Benefits of using materials from Marshalls include:
Block paving is an ethically-sourced product that delivers a premium finish and transforms properties in the Sussex area. Our paving contractors use natural stone setts in a variety of colours, textures and finishes, including systems for driveways that replicate cobbles. Those who wish to achieve a high-end block paving finish at a lower price can use concrete bricks.
Our tarmac contractors mainly use tar-and-chip systems on driveways in Sussex that require a more simple and cost-effective approach. Even then, R.J. Skinner achieves the same design flexibility that has been our hallmark since starting out back in 1970. We use chips in a range of different colours to give driveways their own distinctive appearance – even on a budget.
Even with premium block paving in natural stone, the cost of materials is around 20% of the budget and won’t add significant cost to the project. Because an installation from our paving contractors takes longer than an installation from our tarmac contractors, the overall cost of projects in block paving and tarmac stays relevant, as do installations using a gravel surface.
