Clark & Kent Contractors offers all types of sub-base surfacing with a wide range of materials.

Our use of specialist machines and a skilled workforce means that we can accurately assess and execute any scheme working to high safety and efficiency standards.

Skid steer loaders, dumpers, compactors and vibratory rollers are just some examples of the machinery we use for sub-base surfacing to ensure all tasks are completed quickly, efficiently and effectively.

We can apply a sub-base to any area that is to be surfaced in a bound material. Typical areas can include car parks, footpaths, driveways, farm tracks and access roads so, whatever your development project, we are sure to have you covered.

Sub-base layers can be completed using a broad range of stone based materials to suit each job, and we can tailor a package to suit both your needs and budget.

These materials can include:

  • Ministry of Transport Type 1 stone
  • 6F2 / 6F5 site won material
  • Plainings
  • Recycled crushed concrete
  • Type 2 stone and scalpings
  • Hoggin and ballast
  • Limestone and granite dust

Please take a look at our pictures to see some examples of our sub-base surfacing in the Case Studies section.

A correctly laid and compacted sub-base will improve drainage, help prevent subsidence, increase load bearing capacity and extend the lifetime of roads, pavements, yards or parking areas.

It is important that the right materials are chosen for the job and that the aggregate is laid and compacted properly or the final top layer surface could deteriorate much more quickly leading to avoidable repair work later on.

Many materials can be employed in the creation of a to create a sub-base, and the thickness can vary according to the type of surface to be laid over it and the estimated traffic load likely to be experienced.

Various materials may be used in combination and can be unbound granular or bonded with a weak cement solution.

Whatever your project we are happy to advise and to use our expertise and experience in sub-base work to ensure you the very best results and the lowest cost. Please CONTACT US with your requirements and we will do our very best to help,
