Driveway repair in St Cleer

Driveway repair

Here we repaired a driveway and two inspection covers in St Cleer

The problem was that the inspection covers and their frames had worked loose over the years since they were installed. The occupant of the house was concerned that the right hand inspection cover would fail as he drove his large van over it because the drive is quite steep.

Problems of this type are quite common as the ground tends to settle on new developments and the inspection covers can end up being above the level of the driveway. This is what had happened here. We removed the inspection cover and its supporting frame, trimmed the chamber tube to match the ground level and then set the frame in new cement. Once this had set we repaired the tarmac around the inspection covers to match in well with the existing drive.
