Hi

Getting block paving done and guys have used something called burn off (which I think is road planings) instead of type 1 as the sub base.

Just want to know if this is ok or if I am getting ripped off?

Any replies appreciated.

Thanks
Jaz

I've not used it for a subbase for block paving I know of a few others who have my only experiance with it is we used a couple of loads straight from the planner for a temporary access road was roughly graded out and tracked in when we came to do a final grade about 6 months later it was solid undigable with a spade or pick

JSR1 I see you are in London
type 1 is expensive in London ,the correct way is with type 1 crushed limestone or granite but what did they quote for?
I have seen many techniques including lean mix but the key thing is will they guarantee it in writing
compaction of the sub base is the key part in all this,it must be well compacted,a roller or heavy wacker plate is best >85kg
cheers LLL

10 tonne load Chris?
Buy it in bulk bags and more like 45 a bag
tipped dont always work depending
when they were doing the M1 near me planings were 10 a tonne
I think in the north and scotland they get type 1 a lot cheaper
cheers LLL :)
