The reason for wanting a new driveway can include moving into a new home or just a revamp and refresh of your current one, but it is something you need to put a lot of thought into.
Below are some points that’s worth considering before you find the perfect driveway choice for you.
What would you change with the current driveway?
Is there something extra you need from the driveway that you currently don’t have, is it just lacking a wow factor, is it high maintenance or are you just in need of something more substantial?
It could be that it’s severed its purpose and now you need something a little bigger, whatever needs changing or adjusting make sure to figure out what criteria the new driveway needs to have and also how you will go about achieving your goal.
Make sure to express your thoughts and requirements to your driveway installers on the initial site survey, you wouldn’t want an insufficient driveway being installed.
How should the new driveway look?
Your driveway is the first thing visitors see when visiting your property as they say first impressions count, sometimes it is about presentation. Make sure you think about colour and how it will fit in with the garden and brickwork.
You can always go bespoke, this is when your imagination can take over, be sure to combine function and convenience with making the driveway attractive and modern in appearance.
Drainage – What about it?
