Domestic Services

Domestic Services from WI Meikle

Here are some of the domestic services we offer. If you'd like to make an enquiry about anything you see here, or are wondering if we're willing or able to do something a bit different, please contact us with your requirements.

Asphalt and Tarmacadam Driveways

We have been creating beautiful asphalt and macadam driveways for over 26 years. What sets us apart from our competitors are the standards we uphold from design to completion. Good design and thorough preparation are essential for effective and long-lasting driveways. We offer a free design and specification service to suit our clients’ particular requirements whilst at the same time dealing with the practical issues like drainage, ground conditions, dropped kerbs, adjusting gates or any other associated works.

Asphalt and Tarmacadam Repair

We specialise in surfacing repairs, from large areas to single patches, and utilise unique processes which provide the highest standards of repair. Our infra-red equipment produces thermally sealed seamless repairs with no noticeable joints. As well as surfacing, we are able to re-set manhole covers and ironwork as required, fix curbs and edgings, replace pot-holed and damaged areas, and reinstate road linings, all under a single contractor.

Block Paving

Our blocks are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes , colours and textures. Design, specification and thorough preparation are essential for beautiful and long-lasting results. Our free design service can incorporate circular features, and we can incorporate steps and ramps etc. to suit your particular requirements. We offer porous paving systems if required - often referred to as SUDS (Sustainable urban Drainage Systems). We have a range of curbs, edgings, channels and drainage units to complement our block paving.

Patios and Paving

Using a large variety of materials, we can create your ideal patio, path, steps or ramps that will complement your property. Good preparation and installation standards and the use of quality materials ensure our paving work is both beautifully done and built to last. We offer a free design service incorporating all drainage, curbs, retaining walls etc required to ensure the works achieve our high standards of finish.

Walls and Retaining Structures

Changes in levels can create a challenge when creating terraced gardens, driveways and patios. We can provide various types of retaining structures which will retain embankments, create elevated platforms, cut into steep gardens for parking spaces or level up areas on sloping sites. Our structures are attractive as well as functional, which we can design and build by utilising a variety of methods and materials, from traditional brick walls to sleepers and timber crib walling.

Foundations and Under-building

Whether you are proposing an extension or a whole new property, we can provide excavation and foundations, drainage, services, sub-structure, solum and concrete floors as a complete package under a single contract. We use specialist innovative methods where access is restricted or has to be retained during the works. We are NHBC Registered Builders and are fully experienced in working with NHBC and Building Control Inspectors.

Sewer Connections and Services

We are approved contractors for Scottish Water and Local Roads Authorities. We carry out works in the public roads and have the expertise required to deal with the planning consent and installation works required for connecting services to utility networks.

Dropped Kerbs and Access Works

We are approved contractors with Local Roads Authorities and install drop kerb access for domestic clients, including arranging all consents, insurances, traffic management and reinstatement. Whether you are forming a new access or off street parking area we can arrange everything.

Drainage Works

Whether you need drainage for a new project or require to upgrade old pipe-work we can help. We offer a survey service and can identify blockages or collapsed pipes and fix them under one contract. As we are also highly skilled in asphalt work, block paving, concrete work, turfing etc we can take care of reinstatement, whatever the surface.

Soft Landscaping

We can provide traditional turf and associated preparation and soiling to take any unsatisfactory area and transform it into a green and pleasant place. We can carry out planting works in association with driveway or drainage works where dealing with a single contractor is advisable.

Artificial Grass (Often known as Astroturf)

Maintaining an attractive lawn can be very time-consuming and pretty hard work. We offer the ultimate low maintenance lawn. Whether it’s for a play area for kids, to improve that area you may have that won’t grow due to pet activity, inadequate drainage or overhanging trees, or simply to eliminate any requirement for cutting and maintaining a lawn. We have alternative grass types to suit your requirements at affordable prices.

Septic Tanks , Treatment Plants and Soakaways

We can design and install a new septic tank, treatment plant or soakaway under a single contractor and if you require, we will take care of compliance with SEPA Building Control and satisfy their procedural requirements before and during the works.

Private Road or Communal Responsibility Contracts

We are experienced in dealing with multiple Clients and Groups and can provide assistance in agreeing individual parties’ share of the works, setting up contracts, ring-fenced funds, and agreeing method statements and programme of works where required. Where parties cannot agree, we can provide practical information in adjudication or dispute resolution.
