APL Designer of the year - NCC Streetscape
The unique GftK Paving Joint Mortars from Germany are exclusively provided to distributors and contractors throughout the UK and Ireland by NCC Streetscape Ltd, who are also suppliers of an extensive range of paving cleaners and sealers, plus other specialist resin based materials such as structural adhesives, waterproofing mortars and movement joint systems for groundworks and hard landscaping.
We do not supply paving and so we are completely independent and focussed on providing the best paving joint mortar / paving grout and other specialist paving solutions, especially for ‘small format’ paving on all types of projects from domestic patios, through driveways and retail developments to highway works.
The refurbishment of paved surfaces is required all too frequently because of the high failure rate of the jointing used initially, often just selected as the lowest cost option – the answer and to save both time and money on both new and refurbishment paving projects, is to talk to NCC Streetscape first.
