A superb job laying block paving in our rear yard and driveway. Not a puddle in site during all the recent rain. The block paving only took a day to complete and looks great but the 3 days hard graft beforehand by Ricky and Micky was amazing. Well done lads and thanks John.

We recently had our driveway installed by Dolan's Paving and building and the team worked tirelessly to complete the job in good time we couldn't recommend them highly enough they were all very polite and the lad who came out to quote "John" was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the entire project nothing was too much trouble for them and they did everything they said they would and more besides by far the best building company we have used and we are going to have them back in the summer to do the patio and maybe a new conservatory next year if you're considering having work done then look no further than Dolan's Paving and building you will not get a better service from anyone else as far as I am concerned five stars doesn't do them justice thanks again lads
