Review of Bristol paving  by Barry Jacques
5 08/07/2019 Barry Jacques

We are absolutely delighted with the work done by Steve , Slim and their team. We wanted a new 300m block paving drive, external wall and patio. We wanted to employ a reliable, quality firm and a firm capable of doing a job of this size and complexity. We therefore wern't necessarily looking forthe cheapest. We selected Bristol Paving and 3 other companies following a google search and after exploring their websites that stood out to us. Steve responded to our query faster than the other companies and we had a firm quote from him in a few days. His professionalism, advice, honesty and his desire to do a great job shone through throughout and was head and shoulders above the other companies. Steve gave us examples of previous work he had done, some as much as 10 years ago and we visited them and in some cases spoke to the customers. Without exception the work was of the highest quality and everyone we spoke to were delighted with the work and all gave fulsome praise of Steve and the team. I reviewed all the Bristol Paving reviews and they were all brilliant (and have turned out to be true) which gave us the confidence to select Bristol Paving. It was a bonus when we found that Steve's quote was cheaper than the rest though we we would have selected them anyway as he gave us confidence that the other companies did not.

We had to wait about 8 weeks to start the work. as Steve had masses of work which also gave us confidence that we had selected the right company. Once they arrived, the work was completed from start to finish in 8 days, though they did start at 6.45am and finish often after 8pm! Throughout they checked with us that we were happy with everything being done and everything was done with a smile on their face and a senxe of humour which we liked. A couple of examples where they went the "extra mile" were where they showed great flexibility working with our gate installer timescales and requirements , even though it slowed them down and required them to do extra work not planned in the quote. I was really impressed when after installing a section of the patio edging as agreed by us, Steve said he felt it didnt look right to him, suggested that we should replace with some bull nose blocks. We accepted his advice and he recovered and reinstalled the new design which greatly enhanced the look and feel. This was again done within the agreed cost .

In summary, we are delighted with the work delivered. Steve , Slim and the team are consumate professionals and i wouldnt hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

Having been let down by several previous tradesmen who promised us a great deal and failed to deliver, Steve from Bristol Paving was open, honest and a pleasure to deal with from the outset.

Steve was on time when coming to discuss the work with us, offered us lots of options for the design without being overbearing and answered our questions. He provided us with a formal quotation within 24 hours and kept us informed of when he could start the work.

When it came to the actual work, Steve and his team did a fantastic job from start to finish. This included breaking up and removing old concrete and earth, putting in drainage, levelling out, laying the brick edging and block paving and building a new step into our house. Good advice was given when deciding on design.

When our previous builders messed us about and failed to rebuild our garage wall next to where the drive was going, Steve helped us out massively by digging out the foundations at very short notice and arranging for bricklayers to come and build the wall which was completed quickly, efficiently and finished to a high standard.

Steve and all his team were very professional, knowledgeable, punctual, friendly and hard working. Steve was true to his word and kept to the agreed estimate despite the need to dig out a deeper base (had to buy more hardcore than anticipated) to ensure a solid foundation for the driveway was lied.

We are absolutely over the moon with our new driveway and would highly recommend the services of Bristol Paving.

Driveway, walls and path completed today, totally superb job. Nothing was too much trouble, they really wanted us to be happy with the work and we are. Very impressed with the preparation and groundworks, this drive is here to stay. Will use again.

In short - Bristol Paving had been very good from beginning to end, with just a minor issue around accidentally burying my water meter for a few months.

The quality of the work is top notch, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve and his team to anyone considering a driveway conversion.

Steve came out to quote for our job and was on time, friendly and very helpful. I explained what I had in mind (a double drive with steps 90 degrees from the front door).

Steve explained that it would be complex and expensive for very little gain, and that I’d be far better off having a single drive with wide steps that would be easy for my pregnant wife to climb. Throughout the process Steve was a great help, offering his insight and expertise and reassuring us along the way. He gave a written quotation which was stuck to, and although it wasn’t the cheapest quote we received, my wife and I had absolute confidence in Steve and the list of reference projects he had done.

Once the build had started the guys were on time every single day without fail, and were polite and thoughtful - little things like telling me they were about to do some disk cutting, so I may want to close the front windows to avoid getting dust in the house. The chaps were very polite and we were only too happy to provide plenty of food and drinks and they worked long and hard throughout the build.

My steps took the guys a lot of work, but you can see they are absolutely rock solid, and even after I’d paid Steve the full balance he was still checking the pavers on his way out to make sure everything was perfect.

The quality of the brickwork is nothing short of perfect. I’ve tried to take some close up photos of the workmanship but to say every single brick was meticulously laid, measured, adjusted, and re-measured – its perfect.
Overall, we are totally happy with Bristol Paving. The price was fair for the work involved, everything is structurally rock solid and the finish is perfect.

What more could you want?

As a disclaimer I’m in no way associated with Steve or Bristol Paving other than as a happy customer. I’ve had no special incentive or discount for writing this review, and I’m happy to discuss my experience with anyone considering their services.

In the end Steve liaised with the water company, who came out and uncovered our water meter.

In short - Bristol Paving had been absolutely flawless from beginning to end - until I discovered they had removed and tarmacked over my Water Meter / stopcock.

The quality of their work is still top notch, and I don't want to take anything away from that (and their work ethic) as we were very happy at first...HOWEVER over a month had passed since I raised the issue with Steve, and despite promising he'd come assess it in 2-3 weeks, nothing was ever done about it.

My wife was heavily pregnant and having no way to stop water in the event of a flood is worrying to us both. I was promised a 5 year guarantee on the workmanship against sinkage, blown bricks etc but given how hard it is to get a response from the company, I'm sceptical what would happen in the event something were to fail.

In the end, Bristol water came out in October to try and read the meter (a full three months after raising the issue with Bristol Paving), they were very helpful and quickly rectified the mistake - It took them about an hour and half to complete the work.

I don't want to be unfair - the actual work Bristol Paving have carried out is to a very high standard, the team worked tirelessly and obviously didn't intend to bury the stopcock/water meter. We all make mistakes, but it's how those mistakes are handled that is the true test, and in this case it's been poor. Bristol Paving had ample opportunity to right their mistakes, but it just wasn't important to them.

Bristol Paving were great. They made sure I'm happy with the progress of the job at every stage, their advice and insight were priceless. They worked really hard and finished the driveway to high standard. Their experience was of a great value, they were able to propose solutions that I didn't even think about. Highly recommended. I would definitely use them again.

Very happy with the work carried out by Bristol Paving. The whole team worked well, they were respectful and polite and answered any questions that I had. The whole job took 3 days and was carried out in a clean and tidy way (well, as much as is possible when digging your garden up). I will recommend them to anyone who asks.

Had an agreed verbal contract with Bristol Paving to carry out construction of a block paving and tarmac frontage. Without any consultation the work was sub-contracted - the resulting work was of poor quality. Would be reluctant to recommend Bristol Paving in light of this experience.

Rubbish. Turned up at my house and reviewed the job (whilst my wife entertained his kid that was with him at the time) and agreed to return two weeks later to do the work. Never saw or heard from him again after that, despite multiple phone calls and text messages asking for confirmation. I managed to get through to his wife who apologised and said he would be in touch....but nothing. All I wanted was to know what was happening so I could make suitable plans, but he didn't have the decency or professionalism to call back and let me know. Nice one, thanks Steve!!!
