Choosing the right driveway

Are you considering removing turf to put in a path or are you sick and tired of repairing your existing driveway? If it’s yes to either, then this article will detail the assessment process Stanleys Roofing and Building in Luton and Dunstable will provide for all prospective clients.

What is the intended use of the driveway?

If you intend your driveway to just store cars and other vehicles, then a simple yet classic tarmac surface will be sufficiently strong to withstand the weight. Due to its colour, oil stains from cars will be less visible, and the maintenance required for a tarmac driveway is minimal.

If you desire your driveway to incorporate a pathway to your garage or front door, then block paving or gravel might be a more suitable material choice.

In keeping with the property

If your property has a distinctive look that might be disturbed by a tarmac driveway, then block paving might be a better solution. The many available designs and colours for block paving allow them to be designed in a unique way to suit any property. You may also consider block paving for beautiful patios for gardens or forecourts.

What is the potential size of the driveway?

The area that requires covering will have a significant bearing on the overall cost of the job. If you are working to a tight budget, and you have a large area to cover, then gravel will probably be the most cost-effective solution. Smaller spaces and patios may benefit from the personal touch that block paving offers.
