A newly installed driveway will add value to your domestic property.
-Modern block paving is incredibly durable and hard wearing. Providing the sub base is surveyed and reinforced, the driveway will not sink, crack, dip or have anything grow through it. Hence the quality of the sub base is of very important to ensure a good base for installation -Gravel or loose stone driveway could have many different colours and sizes of stone chippings to choose from including gold, pink, grey, blue’s and green’s etc.
Added benefit of having a gravel driveway is that additional drainage is not required as surface water simply drains through the stone chippings into the sublayer.
-Tarmac is the cheapest method of laying a hard surface in the driveway. But it's a time-consuming job which requires specialist tools, machinery and knowledge. This means that it only becomes the cheapest method once the driveway is set up and the underlying surface is prepared, then lying tarmac is essentially cheap in comparison with the other options available Tarmac driveways can look very nice and can last years with minimum maintenance. The most popular standard colours are black or red tarmac but there are also other colours available.Some contractors would mix the asphalt with a polymer dye for a more pleasing appearance. Generally these driveways last about 10-15 years. Other options available are resin driveways, resin bonded driveways, which are also equally durable when laid in with proper care and when following the construction procedures precisely.
-Block paving is a very popular choice for patios due to its wide choice of patterns and colours in addition to being low maintenance and very hard wearing..
