I chose this company after reading the reviews listed on google and elsewhere. Plus my parents advised that a lot of work had been done in Corringham where they live.I have to say, advanced have done an amazing job of transforming my drive. They arrived promptly on the first day and excavated the old driveway and prepared it for the paving blocks.These arrived the following day and the team were then back the next day to finish the job. They cleared away all mess and swept the area well, leaving me with the driveway that I wanted.Gabi, went over and above on a return visit to show me how to lift up the manhole covers. When doing so, discovered that my sewer was partially blocked with waste and cleared all of it for me, before relaying the drain cover and applying the clips.A big thank you to everyone at Advanced and to Gabi for going beyond the service I expected.Anyone considering Advanced, I would definitely recommend.Colin, 6 Gourney Grove, Grays.

I used John and his team for my front drive and back garden and couldn’t be happier with the end product. I couldn’t imagine a harder working team who were extremely polite and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble for them and John meticulously oversaw the progress daily - John also provided lots of pointers and ideas to help with our finished front and back gardens. I would 100% recommend this company and would definitely use again - Thank you John and all your team !

John and his team have just completed a new driveway for me and I couldn’t be happier! Fromstart to finish they have done a great job. Professional, reliable and hardworking. I will definitely be recommending them to friends and family.

I required a range of work done including Paving, Fencing, Brick Wall, Drainage and landscaping. John provided a competitive written quote, and explained exactly how to job was going to be carried out and how long it would take. No deposit was required when I agreed to the quote, and work commenced as promised. The team arrived promptly every day and quickly started work clearing the site. Extra people were brought to site as required as the different areas of the job progressed i.e. bricklayers, block pavers ,etc. Work continued until completion of the job and was fully project managed by John ensuring that all building materials arrived on site when required. All rubbish was immediately cleared every day, leaving no disruption to our neighbours. I had a progress report from John every evening , and walked through the job on the final day to ensure that I was 100% happy with the work, and rectify any minor snagging points. Payment was only required once I was fully satisfied. I have no hesitation in recommending john and his team.
18:44 18 Mar 21
I would recommend that anyone who needs a drive or patio to contact John and his team!We had been suffering a boggy mess of a drive and garden for far too long before contacting him and I’m so impressed with the speed and efficiency John and his lads transformed our property. We were provided with samples and design ideas to suit our budget. The team were polite and took pride in their work offering advice from whom obviously had a wealth of experience in their profession. I’m so happy with the results so thank you Advanced.

I called John at Advanced Drives and Patios because he had done such a great job on so many local driveways.From beginning to end I found John and his team to be extremely professional and always working to high standards. They were very quick in getting the job done and made sure everything was left clean and tidy at all times, which left no disruption to any of my neighbours. Nothing was too much for them and I cant recommend them enough if your in the market for any of their services. I will be using them for my Garden landscaping and have also passed their details onto many other family members and friends.

Just before Christmas John & his team completed landscaping works on my dads back garden and fencing which was very impressive.The team worked quickly and they were very hardworking, showing professionalism, John ensured my dad was happy with the works & the lads, including sharing his personal advice. Throughout the works the lads were always ensuring the area was left clean & tidy, with all waste & excess debris removed throughout the duration of the project. I would strongly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for such type of works & would certainly use them again.

We used Advanced in January 2021 to transform our garden. The team was very professional, polite, speedy and extremely hard workers. Throughout the work John and the team provided us advice and ideas on how best to do things and this definitely paid off. I was very impressed with how clean and tidy they left the front and back of our house throughout the work. Also, how quickly the team removed the waste and debris from the garden each day. All in all a fantastic job from start to finish. We are so pleased and happy with the end result cannot thank the team enough!

This is the 2nd time we’ve used Advanced driveways and patios and we have recommended them to many. John, Paul and the team are professional, courteous and friendly. We had our driveway done in a previous house and when we moved and needed our whole back garden landscaped, they were the first company we contacted. They have completely transformed our garden and made it safe, low maintenance and clean for our kids to be able to play in, in all seasons. John was our main point of contact and he helped us to decide on what was the best options, how to best design it for use ability and delivered the very best standard of professionalism. Everyone who came here followed strict safety precautions, especially while Covid is around. The lads working here arrived promptly, were polite at all times and very conscious of keeping everything tidy and keeping the neighbors happy. John and Paul regularly popped in to keep an eye on things and how they were going and were on hand for any questions we had. They worked from the minute they arrived until it was dark. The work was carried out very quickly but with the precision and quality you would expect. We will definitely be booking the team in again in the future to have this driveway done and as always look forward to seeing them. If you want quality that lasts at an amazing price, this is the company to use. You will not be disappointed. We always have and will continue to recommend John and his company to anyone who asks. If I had the option... I’d give a solid 10/5. 5 stars just doesn’t justify the quality we received.

I’m not normally one to write reviews but sometimes you have to give credit where credit is due. John and his lads from start to finish were absolutely superb. The way they conducted themselves, politeness and hardworking, and delivery of project was earlier than expected, I cannot complement them enough.If you are thinking of having works done, I would have no doubt in recommending John.ABSOLUTELY TOP NOTCH

I cannot praise John and his team enough, they have put in a new drive and configured our front garden with a fence and grassed area. John offered ideas on how to re configure our garden which has come out beautiful. What a team of hard working, punctual guys who are so polite and I have never seen a team leave the area they are working on plus the surrounding area so clean after each days work. If you require a drive or patio look no further than Advanced. Thank you all so much.Martin & Sandra

We used Advance in our previous house approximately 6 years ago and was very pleased with the job, so decided to use them again in our new house.John and his team completely transformed our garden. We had a new patio, sleepers put in and the lawn turfed. John never asks for money up front, he only wants payment when the job is completed and you are happy with it.The guys arrived at 7:30am every morning and worked really hard even during the pouring rain, making sure everything was left clean and tidy at the end of every day. John would also turn up first thing, lunchtime and at the end of the day to make sure you were happy with how it was going. John gave us good advice and delivered what he promised.We are over the moon with the finished results and would definitely recommend them. See attached our before and after pictures.

I cannot overstate how impressed I have been with the service, workmanship, speed, politeness and tidiness of Johnny and his team when they recently completed my driveway, paths and small patio area. Advanced were the only company to quote for my job on the same day they carried out a site visit and the only company to come in on budget and ahead of timescale.Right from the outset Johnny and the team totally understood my requirements, explained what would happen stage by stage, consulted me where appropriate along the way and created a driveway. that's a work of art! Even strangers walking by my home have commented on how wonderful it looks. The only downside is that the driveway now looks so fantastic it's making the rest of my house look scruffy!It's worth adding that even after the final part of a path had been laid in the back garden we changed our minds about the design overnight and the guys re-laid it the next day without any fuss!I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them for your driveway/patio requirements.
19:44 21 Aug 19
Absolutely thrilled with my new terrace and steps and cannot thank John and his team of guys who worked so hard John kept me informed every day - would thoroughly recommended them thank you Guys

If you're looking for a paving contractor and are in doubt as to which one to choose, then look no further than Advanced Drives and Patios.From the start, John was very understanding of my requirements and very helpful in agreeing the final scope of works. Their quote was competitive, and though not detailed, did not include any omissions and at no time was there any suggestion of "things that hadn't been allowed for". John arrived on Monday at 8:00 with Dragash and his team and they immediately set to work removing the old surfacing including some concrete which turned out to be 8-10" thick. Inheriting a problem not of their making, John impressed me immensely with the way he took ownership of it and dealt with it. Not a hint of conjecture, he just got on and did it. For this reason alone he is highly recommended as this sort of responsibility is sadly missing in most other contractors.But furthermore, there is the quality of work and the manner in which it was carried out. Unsurpassed is the only word I can think of which describes it. Dragash is so much more than just a paver as my discussions with him proved. Even to the point of returning on a Sunday morning to finish a little extra job I'd asked to be done. All the team were polite and respectful and minimised disruption to neighbours. And with our narrow roads, they exercised all due care and attention to other vehicles.My drive and flower beds (although not planted yet) look fantastic and are exactly what I wanted and what I asked for.I'm sure the pay back period for the outlay has been immediate in terms of house prices since the front now looks superb, thanks to Advanced Drives and Patios.I cannot rate this Company highly enough getting a full 5 star rating.Thanks again lads.Philip, Windsor Ave.

Advanced have paved our drive and reconfigured and paved our front garden path following an extension we had built. We are delighted with their work which perfectly finishes off the work already done. Were amazed how quickly and tidily they got the job done and the price was significantly less than another quote we had too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.
15:54 11 Jan 19
I am extremely pleased with the service offered by Advanced, the new driveway has transformed the property. From initial contact to completion the service has been fantastic, the guys always turn up exactly on time and the care, attention to detail and quality of their service is superb.They worked very quickly and kept the area tidy, consulting me through out to make sure I was happy with the design.I would not hesitate to recommend them and would certainly use them again.
18:08 14 Sep 18
From initial call to job completion Johnny and his team were faultless in their work.Simply just a team of hard working guys clearly masters in their craft.I was taken back by the speed and especially cleanliness of their work. Pretty sure around 15tonnes of earth came up but we never saw it as it was taken away from our property instantly.Cannot fault Johnny and his team and would 100% recommend Advanced to anyone looking for good quote, quick work and excellent detailed finish.Mike & KatieEssex
09:17 07 Apr 18
