Block Paving

Which driveway is best for your home?

Between powerful UV rays, adverse weather conditions and heavy vehicles; your driveway puts up with a lot. If you are regularly filling in a crack here or there; now might be a good time to consider replacing your driveway. Not only can the one-off expense amount to considerably less than the cost of regular repair work; but an attractive new driveway can boost the value of your home by around 5%.

From giving your home a little extra kerb appeal, to pure practicality; there are plenty of reasons to invest in a new driveway. But which type is right for your property, budget and lifestyle?

Resin Driveways

Love the aesthetic of gravel, but not quite so keen on all the upkeep? A resin driveway might just fit the bill. Resin fixes the aggregate stones in place; minimising the required maintenance and preventing stones from migrating on to grass and flower beds. Resin driveways are an attractive alternative to gravel and are available in a wide range of colours and textures. Customised designs create a premium feel; enhancing the overall look of your property.

Meanwhile, resin driveways are also porous. Aggregate stones provide adequate drainage, preventing flooding and subsequent surface damage. As resin is flexible and resistant to cracking, you can be sure that your surface will look good for years to come. Practical, stylish and cost-effective, it’s no surprise that resin driveways are an increasingly popular choice for our customers.

Paved Driveways

There’s no doubt about it; paved driveways provide an attractive, premium aesthetic. Flagstones, slabs and bricks are available in a varied range of colours and textures to complement the exterior of your home. A paved driveway can become a design feature, giving your property a little extra character; whether you live in a Victorian terrace or a new build.

Style aside; a key benefit of a paved driveway is its low-maintenance. Regular washing with soap and water will keep your driveway looking attractive and well-maintained. Meanwhile, the strength of paved surfaces means that you can continue to enjoy your new driveway for up to 20 years to come.

What will you choose?

Ultimately, your perfect driveway is heavily dependent upon your own individual circumstances. Whichever driveway material takes your fancy; it is important to choose the right installer. Sub-par installation can drastically shorten the lifespan of your driveway and leave it vulnerable to cracks and other surface damage.
