If your driveway is looking a little tired it can have an effect on the whole front of your property and reduce the visual impact on arriving.
Cracks in tarmac, stained asphalt, or holes and weeds in block paving are just some of the problems your driveway can face, and while some issues can be resolved with a jet wash or a trowel, nothing beats a new, modern driveway for aesthetic appeal, practicality and even increasing the value of your home.
The first decision you need to make is what kind of driveway you would like. There are surfaces including tarmac, asphalt, gravel and block paving available from many contractors in your area and each has its benefits depending on your budget and other requirements.
Look at the layout of the front of your home and decide if there should be any changes to positioning or size of your driveway. No changes will make the process quicker and cheaper, but if you really want to be able to get out of your car without stepping in a flower bed, now is the time to decide.
Now you know what you want, it’s time to find a contractor. The choice you make will depend on your priorities and your budget, but it is always a good idea to check out a range of companies and get firm quotes.
Find reviews of their driveways or recommendations from customers who have had block paving, tarmac or asphalt laid by that firm. Always go for quality and reliability over lower prices, as a poor job or a contractor that doesn’t complete the job can cost you more in the long run. Check to see what industry schemes they are signed up to for further reassurance.
