Paving Contractors List

The Pavingexpert.com Contractor List has been putting clients in touch with Contractors since 1998. Each month, the website receives dozens of enquiries from main contractors, developers, builders, architects and private householders looking for reliable and skilled tradesmen. So, in order to pass on these valuable job leads, Pavingexpert.com maintains an offline list of contractors with basic information, such as which areas they work, what type of work they undertake, and how long they've been in the trade. When a clients asks if we can suggest a suitable contractor, the database spits out a list of contractors meeting the necessary criteria, and this list, which might be just one contractor or might be a dozen, is forwarded to the client.
Signing-up for the Contractor List is completely free. There is no membership charge or registration fee, but then there is no guarantee that enquiries will originate in any particular area or region. You sign up: we pass on your registered contact details to enquirers; simple as that. It is up to the enquirer to make contact with the suggested contractor(s). Pavingexpert.com does not act as an intermediary. britain and ireland
What's in it for us? Well, you could buy me a pint the next time you see me, but there's no obligation. The ability to have direct access to a wide range of British and Irish contractors allows the website to conduct genuinely independent research on trends, prices and practices within the industry. Further, it allows us to offer various manufacturers, distributors and retailers a moderated pathway to the more clued-up contractors, to provide the supply-side of the industry with impartial feedback on products old and new, as well as offering them a reservoir of talent and experience that can be called upon when necessary.

But, if you did want to send me a bottle of Jameson's.... wink

Not a contractor? Sorry, but I do NOT publish the National Contractor List for data protection reasons. If you're looking for a contractor to undertake your project, have a look at this page for general advice or consider using one of the contractors which contribute to the Brew Cabin discussion forum and are listed here


Email news:

Occasionally, list members will be sent the Pavingexpert.com Newsletter by email. This will provide information on what we consider to be highly important news of direct relevance to the paving, drainage and hard-landscaping industry.

Anyone can sign-up to be included in the Newsletter mailout. Although the content is usually of interest to contractors, it may also entertain DIYers or anyone with an interest in the paving trade.

You can sign-up to be added to the mailing list on this page

pavingexpert email news No irrelevant drivel, no adverts for finance or pharmaceuticals of dubious origin, no useless crap dropping into your inbox every week: just an occasional email alert that will keep you up-to-date with the information you need to know to help you run a better and more profitable business.
Email and other contact details are never passed on to any third parties (see privacy policy). You'll only ever receive emails from Pavingexpert.com. Should a manufacturer or other relevant commercial party wish to contact members of the list, the only way they can do so is via us, so you can be sure your inbox won't be filled up with meaningless twaddle that you don't (and won't!) ever need. Should you ever receive email or other contact from a third party claiming they obtained your contact details from Pavingexpert.com, you can be sure they're a set of lying bast......err.. rogues.


Product trials:

Each year, several national and international manufacturers of paving and paving-related products ask Pavingexpert.com to conduct "Field Trials" of new and/or updated products, and to report back to them regarding the success, or otherwise, of the trial. Over recent months we've arranged installations of recess tray covers, linear channel drains, a new tumbled pavior, and tried out a new screeding system, amongst others.

The Pavingexpert Email Newsletter enables us to contact suitable contractors throughout Britain and Ireland and offer them the chance to take part in field trials that link in with their current workload, whether it's a private driveway or a city-centre pedestrianisation scheme.

The deal is simple: we provide all the materials at no cost to the contractor, and in return, we document the installation or trial, taking photographs, making notes, and recording feedback from the installation crew, which is then written up as a report that will help develop better tools and products. Some manufacturers also offer a token payment and/or additional free product to cover the cost of any inconvenience or disruption to the normal working schedule while helping with the trials. recess tray product trial

... along with practical experience.

Training on-demand:

Tell us what you need, and we'll put together a programme or point you in the right direction to help you get the training you need.

Web services:

Many good contractors are fully aware of the benefits that come from having their own website, but for one reason or another, it never happens. The excessive prices charged by some web designers, the lack of time to develop their own site, uncertainty about how to build and promote a site, or just bafflement at all the jargon, URL, DNS, FTP and WTF.
The Pavingexpert website is developed and managed by cormaic.com, which is basically Tony McCormack wearing a different hat along with a bit of help from various family members and associates. Cormaic.com now offers a selection of web services for the more professional paving and hard-landscaping contractors working in Britain and Ireland. All services are backed by the unique combination of skills that has created Pavingexpert.com - a thorough knowledge and understanding of the paving trade combined with a decade of experience in building and managing websites. cormaic.com

Web Hosting:

Simple, no-nonsense, top-quality web-space provided via the hosting company entrusted with the Pavingexpert.com website. As much or as little space as you need, with all the ancillary services you could ever possibly want, such as online enquiry forms, visitor statistics, your own blog, video-streaming, along with all the usual website features.

If you already have a website and reckon you're paying over the odds for not much of a service, Pavingexpert can offer you a basic annual hosting package from as little as £30


Domain registration:

It's just straightforward business sense to ensure your trading name isn't cyber-squatted by some low-life scumbag who wouldn't even know which end of a maul to hold. A preferential relationship with our hosting partner enables us to register domain names on your behalf. Even if you don't want to develop a full website, you can simply 'park' your domain and thereby keep the squatters at bay, but why not make use of the email facility that comes with each domain … sales@yourcompany.com looks far more professional than big_willy_236@hotmail.com on your quotations, trust me!

We can register…

  • Yourcompany.co.uk
  • Yourcompany.ie
  • Yourcompany.com
  • Yourcompany.biz
  • Yourcompany.net
  • Yourcomapny.eu

Site design:

By owning a domain, you have the opportunity to develop it as you see fit. Turn it into your very own website, or use the skills and services of cormaic.com to get a basic site on the web in next to no time. Start with a simple one-page information site and then gradually add a portfolio of your best work to show off to potential customers. Create another page for your client feedback. Maybe you want to create separate pages for patios and for driveways, or how about a page for your cleaning and aftercare services?

Cormaic.com speaks your language and provides an on-going relationship, allowing you to update and extend your web presence as and when you feel it necessary, and all at a sensible price. Take advantage of the web team behind the success of Pavingexpert.com and use them to get your site noticed.


Linked sites:

One further advantage of the cormaic.com package is the ability to have your site linked directly from the Pavingexpert.com website. All sites managed by cormaic.com will be automatically included in the Contractors' Directory - other sites will be required to pay an annual administration fee.

Preferred Contractors:

Established contractors can apply to be rated as a "Pavingexpert.com Preferred Contractor". Applicants are carefully vetted using a procedure that considers their customer relation procedures as well as their construction skills. Preferred Contractors are granted priority placement on both the online directory and the off-line Contractors List.
