We had a new drive installed in September 2023 and I wanted to wait to see how it would look after the winter months. I have to say it looks very good despite all the rain we have had since then. Andy and his installation team worked very hard and carried out the installation to a very high standard. Thank you.

Andy and his team recently did our patio for our back garden and we are so pleased with the result.They worked professionally, kept to the promised price (which was the best quote we recieved in out of 6 competitors we contacted) and were even done faster than expected and left everything very tidy. Our garden now looks amazing, I would highly recommend booking them!

Ground force Paving without a doubt did a great job putting in a new block paving driveway for us. From the beginning to the end we only have had an excellent experience. The pricing was very competitive compared to similar companies and the job was of good quality. Andy and his team were were very polite and considerate. The team did the job professionally on the promised timeframe with an excellent standard and kept the site tidy and clean. The driveway looks amazing (see the photo). We would highly recommend Andy and his company Ground force Paving.

We are very happy with the work completed by Andy and his team. They listened to what we wanted and provided us with a very competitive quote. The work was completed within the time frame Andy gave. He and his team were always respectful towards us and our property. We would not hesitate to recommend Ground Forcing Paving to anyone

I have used Ground Force many times over the years and Andy has always delivered as promised. I always recommend him to friends and family. If you have a job make sure you get him to quote before you make any commitments.

We had a new driveway installed with block paving, and also rear garden returfed and new patio laid. Really impressed with the professional service and quality of work that Andy,Nik and their team showed. The results are mesmerising and the top quality craftsmanship makes our house look amazing for all onlookers. From their vast experience all the advice they gave was always right and was best for us even if it meant less work for them. All the workers are top class, not once did we have to chase up or watch over them. Professionally and quietly did their jobs and cleaned up behind them. Also they are great value for money, very high quality work at reasonable prices. I have absolutely no problem in recommending them. One of the best experiences we’ve had with tradespeople over the years.

We recently had an outbuilding removed, a large patio removed and the patio replaced, some old fencing removed and replaced and a garden gate fitted.. From start to finish is was a pleasure to deal with Andy and his team, from the ease of receiving the initial quote to the completion of the work. The team worked very hard and were clearly experienced and professional in what they did, they were tidy and removed all the waste, and all the work was completed without any problems. Both me and my wife are really pleased with how the work was done and the end result, it looks great, couldn’t be happier.. I’d highly recommend these guys without hesitation…

Andy had previously been employed to dig up and lay herringbone paviers outside 9 houses. This was a difficult job which he handled extremely well. In view of this we asked him to quote for relaying our front path and creating a patio in our back garden. We told him the basic shape and he designed a fabulous patio. We are extremely pleased with his work and highly recommend him to you.

We needed some minor repair to pointing and a broken slab replaced. The quality of the work was very poor, the grey pointing they put on did not match the existing buff colour, and the repaired slab join was awful with lots of cement left on the edges of the slab. Despite an Email to the office, which was ignored, and 3 consecutive daily calls to get Andy to come back and fix the problem, this did not happen and 3 weeks later we are still left with a very botched job. We were charged what we were led to believe was a whole days work, which was actually completed in 2.5 hours. Cannot recommend and would not use again

Hi Jenny, sorry to hear you were not happy with the patio repair work. We did make it clear that we needed 3 consecutive dry days in order to get the pointing properly done, and the last month has not had that unfortunately. We also said we wouldn't be able to have a perfect match to the pointing colour, as the existing material is now 10 years old and will have faded in colour. We are happy to come out and fix the issue free of charge at a time to suit you, but you haven't accepted our offer to do this. We always want to leave our customers with a result they are happy with so please get in contact on our main number. Kind regards, Andy - Business Owner

I highly recommend Groundforce for driveway installation. Andy was great, from start to finish, I had regular phone calls throughout the project informing me re the next stage and how long it will take. During, I can imagine, very busy period my driveway was completed within 6 days (as agreed and expected). The finished job looks amazing, the ground was professionally levelled and compacted with heavy machinery, the tarmac was laid by several members of staff, I could see that were very experienced and professional. The price was very competitive comparing to other companies I got quotes from. Honestly, one of the best companies I have worked with for a while. Thank you Groundforce and Andy for an amazing job done!

Not just a good job, a great job! How many companies do you know that are on time, polite, professional, speedy, and great value for money? We asked for something a little different and Ground Force delivered! We couldn't be more pleased with the results. Very highly recommended. If you want work produced to a very high standard, whilst keeping a smile on their faces throughout, choose Ground Force.

We used Ground Force earlier this year to refresh our driveway. We had a lot of overgrown trees and thick cement that needed to be removed which Andy dealt with for us as part of the quote which saved us having to contact another contractor. The work completed by the team was great and Andy showed up each day to ensure we were happy with the progress which kept us informed through the process. Amazing value for what you get. Will be using again in the future.

Avoid this cowboy like the plague. Messed me around for weeks. Left me with an unfinished patio (hole in my garden) and wonky, unsecured fencing. Asked me for £700 extra for my choice of patio stones the day before the job was due to start (it had been booked in for months), also requested an advance cash payment after a week of on/off work with not much achieved. Ground Force is not a sizeable company (as it presents itself using a hired office to answer calls) but actually one man and an unskilled team of casual labourers, plus his sons hanging around doing nothing. A terrible experience from start to finish- never turned up when he said, was going to lay my patio without a hardcore underlayer (the man in the shop had advised me how it should be done and to double check he did it correctly - he didn't). Finally I had had enough and sent him off my property. I think this could have been a case of sexism as I am a single woman, therefore clearly not to be treated with professionalism or respect.

Hi Leah, sorry to hear you had a bad experience with us, we always try to make sure our customers have a good result at the end of every project. We have a 10 year guarantee with all work, so will always come back and fix any issue, such as the fencing you mentioned. Unfortunately we haven't been given the chance to rectify anything in this case, since my calls go unanswered and we actually haven't received any payment for the work completed so far. As a note, we use a call answering team to relay messages during busy times since, as you mentioned, we are not a large corporate business. You can reach us on the main number if you want to discuss anything further.

I hired Ground Force to pave two small patio gardens. One was mud and weeds and the other badly paved by a previous owner. Andy's team removed old paving, dug out excess soil then fitted geotextile, MOT type 1 and a good layer of concrete under slabs. Job included steps, drain covers etc and all was done professionally in my opinion. They came back and pointed slabs with cement. Site was left clean and tidy. All in all I'm very happy with the end result and particularly the speed in which it was done. I would certainly use them again.

Andy and his team did a great job and completely transformed our driveway. We needed 5 trees to be removed as part of this project along with a lot of tarmac & soil broken up and removed - they did all this part in one day! Happy to accommodate any changes we asked for and made suggestions of their own for a nicer finish. Would definitely recommend and use again, thanks guys :)

Thameside residents contracted groundforce to lay block paving replacing an existing hard standing. They completed the work to time and on budget providing a high quality finish that is standing up well to the weather and constant use. We commend Andy, as the boss, for turning up every day and dealing with any issues professionally and thoroughly. His team were highly competent tradesmen who worked hard and showed great consideration to both residents and the public who might otherwise have been inconvenienced. Happy to recommend his work and prices.
