DIFFERENT TYPES OF DRIVEWAYS
If are looking for new driveway ideas for your home, you’ll have to decide which type is best for you. Although some might not be as expensive as others, they might not last as long, or might requires more upkeep and maintenance.
Tarmac driveways can look smooth and pristine when applied correctly, matching the road outside your home. But colour choices are very limited, and whilst it should be long lasting, many deteriorate quickly because chemicals and oils (from cars and bikes) react with and dissolve the tarmac.
Block paving driveways such as flags and slabs, or small concrete blocks, are a popular choice for many homeowners, but certain patterns require precise laying which increases installation costs. Many flagged driveways are quite bland, as attractive options cost more money. They can also attract moss and algae easily, requiring more regular cleaning.
Stone and gravel driveways are a good choice if you want to deter burglars, because they are loud when parking your car or walking over them. They’re one of the cheapest options available, but you may need to ‘top-up’ your driveway often. And because they can be laid directly onto the ground, your drive will need regular maintenance, garden membrane and strong weed killer to prevent weeds and grasses from growing.
Bricks or cobblestone driveways are not as common as they used to be, but they can really enhance the period feel of a house. However they are expensive because they are unusual, and require specialist installation. These types of driveways can also become very slippery when wet as well.
But choosing pattern imprinted concrete driveways gives you a long-lasting, extremely strong driveway that can hold heavy weights and requires very little maintenance. On top of that, you also get the biggest choice of patterns, colours and designs, making your new driveway options completely flexible.
