If you are looking to create a driveway, one of the first things you want to make sure of is that it’s sturdy enough to take the weight of a car or two.
That doesn’t mean you should go for a durable material like tarmac or even concrete, however. There are plenty of different and frankly more aesthetically pleasing options that help make an attractive driveway and which add value and style to your home.
At the Leicestershire Paving Company, we’ve got 25 years’ experience creating brilliant driveways for our customers across the region. We can help you with the design, the choice of materials and the actual installation.
Driveway paving can use a range of different materials such as bricks, stones and large or small paving stones. These may also be combined to create interesting designs which can set off your front of house perfectly.
Driveway paving doesn’t have to be uniform and you can easily introduce curves and angles that add interest to the design. You don’t have to wait for the driveway to ‘cure’ either, as you do with tarmac or laid concrete. You can normally park your car on it straight away once the installation is finished.
Most of our customers also point out that driveway paving tends to be less slippery in the rain and are not as likely to be damaged over time. As anyone who drives knows, materials like tarmac can crack and break during extremes of weather and need to be repaired often, especially after cold snaps. Just look at how many potholes there are by the end of winter.
Driveway paving and paving in general is something that many people who like their DIY take on, largely because it doesn’t require specialist equipment. What it does need, however, is a creative attention to detail and a lot of hard work. Laying paving takes longer than putting down something like tarmac or concrete, not least because of the design aspect.
It’s always best to get your driveway paving installed by a professional team who know what they are doing. They’ll be able to ensure that your driveway looks perfect and drains properly when you get any rainfall. Most DIYers don’t find it so easy to design and plan their driveway in the first place.
Luckily, that’s something our expert team at Leicestershire Paving Company are pretty good at doing. Contact us today if you want driveway paving that really helps your home stand out.
