At R.J. Skinner, we combine the roles of paving contractors and tarmac contractors to give our customers something that we believe to be very important – freedom of choice. Those on a budget can opt for surfaces 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, we cover all surrounding parts of Sussex and offer a start-to-finish service. We like to offer flexibility with our services, so we include gravel in our installations to support our work with tarmac and brick paving.
This page looks closer at our product range from Marshalls and explains what we can do for you as the area’s most trusted team of professional contractors. We also compare the use of clay pavers to surfaces laid by our tarmac contractors. In doing so, R.J. Skinner clarifies both benefits and helps you make the right decision for your 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 sets in various colours, textures and finishes, including systems that replicate cobbles. Those who wish to achieve a high-end finish at a lower price can use concrete bricks.
We mainly use tar-and-chip systems on driveways that require a simpler and more cost-effective approach. Even then, R.J. Skinner achieves the same design flexibility that has been our hallmark since starting in 1970. We use chips in various colours to give surfaces their distinctive appearance – even on a budget.
Even with premium pavers 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 brick paving and tarmac stays relevant, as do installations using a gravel surface.
