  • Concrete

possible driveway surface solutions

No one surface is the ideal, especially if the subject matter is external.  Whilst we in the UK are not subject to severe weather conditions as a whole, we still need to be respectful of elements which can create the need for possible driveway surface solutions.

The freeze thaw effect which has not had much effect this year, is the main cause of surface deterioration with tarmac and concrete.  Potholes and shelling being obvious evidence of the how the weather can damage our driveways paths and patios.  That said the surface damage is generally superficial and if treated or protected soon enough further deterioration will not occur.

Resin bonded stone and resin bound paving very often confused as the same ( which they are definitely not), block paving, imprinted concrete, tarmac and concrete are all possible options but it should be realised there is a downside to all  external surfacing.  It may be a maintenance option is necessary (block paving and imprinted concrete for example).  We always recommend all possible driveway surface solutions are considered carefully.  Consider why you need to address the area, or if it is just a cosmetic solution you required.

We try to provide the pro’s and cons with all our clients.  As a Mansfield based company we aim to offer honest advice.  For example consider what is already down and the purpose for what you are considering possible driveway surface solutions for – is it to protect? Is it to look attractive?  Is it a necessary finish?  Do you want a choice of colour?

Remember you do not have to resurface in in one go your driveway path or patio area can be an organic development and can even create kerb appeal.
