Its time to take the first step towards achieving the front entrance that you have always dreamt about. You’re tired of coming home to that old and worn driveway covered in cracks, bumps, and weeds. Your ready to transform it into an elegant landscaping feature that takes your properties aesthetics to the next level.
Well, first of all, a great decision. A driveway is a part of the home which is often overlooked when it comes to home improvement works. The average homeowner is happy to spend thousands on their garden but not on the front of the property. Now all that’s next is to make your mind on which surfacing option you would like to invest in.
The truth is that all of the surfacing options on this blog post have their benefits and constraints, like everything else in life. But for you to make an informed about these options, you need to know the ins and outs of every material.
Over the years tarmac has become an extremely popular solution for driveways in Kent. The reason that so many homeowners decide to invest in tarmac over some of the other options on the market is due to its great durability, sleek finish, and jaw-dropping price tag. Another great property about tarmac is that is relatively easy to work with. This allows surfacing companies to be able to lay the material quickly which then leads to you paying fewer labour costs.
This form of driveway is less common than the traditional tarmac but it offers better flexibility when it comes to your design specifications. Resin allows you to choose which colour your driveway will be, ensuring your new driveway compliments the rest of your home. Furthermore, resin offers excellent durability. It is estimated that your new resin driveway could last up to 25 years, making it the perfect long term investment for any homeowner.
Choosing asphalt as your driveway solution is a great way to keep your costs down whilst still achieving a professional result. Whilst asphalt is considered to be durable it will not have the same lifespan as a resin driveway or tarmac, you should expect to get 12 – 20 years out of your driveway depending on the use and quality of the installation. One thing that you should also take into consideration is the amount of maintenance that is involved with this option. It is recommended that you reseal the driveway every couple of years for maximum results.
Block Paving Driveways
Block paving otherwise referred to as brick paving is a highly customisable way to create an entrance to your home. With complete flexibility around colour, design, and shape you are free to do whatever you want with your beautiful new entrance. Whilst this driveway option may be pretty it has its constraints that you might not be aware of. You must always be considerate with the weight your driveway is subject too. Make sure no large vans or trucks use your driveway for tuning around or this may lead to cracks. Furthermore, it is recommended that you treat your driveway every couple of years.
