They completed the job to an extremely high standard with exceptional organisation. Kevin was not pushy he listened to what we wanted and gave us good advice but most important he did exactly what he said he would.

Kevin had put my mind at ease and as promised the company delivered very well. Everything was done promptly. There was no delay in digging, sanding and laying the driveway all was completed in 5 days including having fence panels and concrete slabs fitted.

We booked Abbey Driveways Ltd to do our driveway, and we are so delighted that we did. We have been really impressed by Kevin and the team by how professional they were, how prompt, how clean and how quick they are able to work. The materials they use are of such high quality and we could not recommend highly enough!

Kevin and the team were fantastic. They turned up on or before time, lorries came and went like clockwork and I couldn’t believe how hard they worked on three very hot days. Kevin kept me informed of what was happening, and checking with me that they were doing what I wanted. They’ve done a great job and I’m delighted with my new drive.

Kelley & John, 01/06/2016

They turned up on time when they said they would and worked like Duracell bunnies the whole time and completed the work in no time at all. I am still shocked at how quickly they did the job and the end result wasn’t compromised. It looks amazing we are really happy. Thanks Abbeydriveways for your superb service and workmanship. We would recommend them without a moments hesitation!

Jake and his team are very professional, they communicated with us throughout the job, they arrived on schedule and worked hard for the duration of the job.

We can’t praise Jake and his team highly enough for the Superb job of paving our very tired front garden. The earth moving lorry arrived at 7.10am and the team soon followed. The digger arrived soon thereafter and within an hour and a half the garden had been cleared and all the rubbish removed.

Contacted Abbey Driveways (Jake) on recommendation.

They did a fantastic job. All the lads were helpful and polite, everything went like clockwork and there was no mess or disruption of any sort. Jake was professional from start to finish.

I chose this business (via this site) after being unimpressed with the previous 3 contractors I had met. Jake immediately impressed with his professionalism, ideas and approach. The quote was not the cheapest but the overwhelming confidence I felt made it a quick decision for me to book him in for my driveway re-surfacing…

Jake and his Team arrived at exactly the time they stated. Our old crazy paving was taken up and disposed of efficiently. A new wall was built which we are so pleased with as Jake did an excellent job of sourcing the bricks to match an existing wall. The block paving and new step are perfect, the whole job has been finished to a VERY high standard and the site was left clean and tidy at the end of each day. The whole team are courteous, professional and good value for money. Highly recommended.

The Team arrived promptly at 0745hrs each day (it was in December) and machines, lorries and deliveries came and went like clockwork. The Team weas hard working, professional, good humoured and tidy. Jake was in constant contact throughout – even on Sundays – to arrange the schedules and quality control the work. I am delighted with the completed job and have no hesitation in recommending Abbey Driveways.

Used this company after reading reviews here plus personal recommendation from a friend. So glad I did – the work (new block paved driveway) was carried out like a military operation with no mess and no disruption. Had several cheaper quotes but for this type of work I believe you get what you pay for and we were well pleased with the result. Have no hesitation in recommending.

taylorknowle 24/09/2012

We had several quotes for a new patio and relaying our block paved driveway including Abbey Driveways (on the basis of the Which-Local review). We chose Abbey partly on the basis of their competitive quote but particularly because Jake inspired us with confidence and gave us lots of good advice on the layout. His communication before during and after completion has been first class. The finished job was of a very high standard and we were consulted throughout on any queries.

We used Abbey Driveways on the strength of the reviews here, and were very happy with their work. They relaid our patio and reset the bricks on our garden path. Excellent communication from quote to completion, a competitive price, friendly workmen, good supervision from Jake, …and quick high quality work.

Calpol 31/07/2012

This team is fabulous. A wonderful job, very professional, tidy and efficient. We lost our Internet service and Jake realised they had accidentally cut through a cable. Any one can make a mistake, but few tradesman would have so readily admitted it and offered to pay for rectifying the damage. In the event, there was no cost involved, Virgin came out and fixed it, but we admired their honesty and integrity. We would readily recommend Abbey Driveways.

Employed Abbey Drives to replace existing tarmac drive. Provided no fuss consise quotation (other companies not so clear and chased to try and undertake work). Turned up promptly at agreed time and worked quickly and efficiently throughout. Team tidy and polite. Tarmac completed by 2nd team from Tar Drives, again efficiently, Jake from Abbey Drives supervising throughout the process.

cartwrir 19/02/2012

Since the drive and walling was done, several people have knocked our door to ask who did the work: It looks really good. The drive is mainly tarmac with a block paved area in front of the house and a separate block paved path accross the lawn with steps down through a a retaining block wall. Recomendations on the layout made by Abbey before and during the job contributed to a better appearance than we had originally envisaged.

Jake and his team laid a new patio for me in july 2011.His quote was extremely competitive(even cheaper than the firm who offered a cheaper deal for cash so we don’t need to involve the VAT man !!)and all work was carried out to an excellent standard, I was dreading the work being done since there was a lot of soil to move etc and it all had to come through the kitchen,i needn’t have worried, there was no mess whatsoever.
