Repaving driveways should be affordable. We have a range of products to suit all budgets and can advise the best option for you.
Gravel is generally the most affordable option for completing a driveway. This is partly due to gravel being completely fully permeable, allowing water to drain into the earth beneath and not requiring the installation of any manmade drainage systems. These factors make gravel driveways some of the most affordable and quick driveways to construct.
Resin bound gravel is one of the highest-quality materials to construct a driveway with. However, it is also one of the more expensive ones. It is also worth considering the aesthetic implications of your choice of driveway. The “best quality” material will not always match your property or its surroundings.
Block paving is the most popular material in the UK. This is due to a combination of factors, the most notable being a low cost per square metre and the ability to easily and cheaply replace a single paving block if it is damaged.
Although block paving remains the most popular options, in recent years, resin bound driveways have been steadily gaining in popularity as an alternative.
Concrete is the most hard-wearing, long-lasting and durable material to use for constructing a driveway. When installed properly, it can have a lifespan of up to four decades even with constant use.
While more resilient to damage from vehicles and footfall, concrete can be a t a greater risk of damage from freezing weather or from being broken apart from beneath by tree roots. Once damaged, it can be difficult to repair a small section without requiring the entire driveway tot be replaces. Concrete block paving offers many of the same benefits but is easier to repair.
The first consideration should be the desired appearance of the finished product. You should take care that the style of your driveway matches the look of your property and the surrounding area. For example, if you have a brick house, a brick driveway if probably more desirable than a tarmac one.
How much use the driveway will see will also help determine the correct material to use. A commercial driveway which may be used dozens or even hundreds of times a day will need to be far more durable than the driveway of a domestic residence.
