It is becoming more and more common for houses in the UK to have driveways at the front of the building to park the familyís cars. There are more and more road users every year and overnight parking is often very difficult to find in built up areas, as a nation we now have more cars per family and we need somewhere to park them. Many more people are sacrificing their front gardens for driveways in a way to end their daily search for space on the kerb.
There are many different styles and materials to choose from when deciding on what driveway to go for, the most popular at the moment being block paving due mainly to its smart look, relatively low cost, longevity and ease of maintenance.
Block paving is available in thicknesses ranging from 50mm to 80mm depending on how heavy duty the surface requirements are, it is available in different styles and patterns as well as kerbing and edging allowing you to create a bespoke driveway for your home.
If you are looking for something a little different, then crazy paving is another option, it takes itís name from the way the blocks are arranged in a seemingly random fashion. But though it may look random, we wouldnít advise you to try it without the skills and experience needed.
A method which is becoming more and more popular due to itís bespoke nature is asphalt, with an asphalt drive you can make a distinctive feature for your home. Asphalt is often a much cheaper option than for example block paving, and is extremely durable, when properly installed, asphalt will not suffer weather damage such as cracking or lifting.
There are other options available such as slabbing, gravel and patterned concrete, a concrete mould where a pattern is printed on the wet concrete, and tarmac, a cheaper option, this is the material used on roads and paths everywhere but not as decorative.
A badly installed driveway may suffer from degradation or damage well before itís time, you need to ensure you are going with a reputable company, and thatís where we come in.
