Tarmac is tops when it comes to durability and versatility. It’s one of the best options when it comes to needing a drive that’s highly durable, weather resistant and one that’s made to last. Tarmac has been the option of choice for many years and continues to be a popular choice as a surface solution.
With such extreme durability, the hard wearing surface can cope with some of the heaviest of weights and can withstand most conditions. Offering great value for money it’s a favoured material for many outdoor flooring surfaces, quick and easy to install, tarmac can be laid and complete within a day.
Its simple look can be updated with paint, or it can be stamped to offer a unique appearance.
Life span: Up to 100 years
Gravel is a great option for the budget-conscious, especially people with longer driveways. Gravel compacts much better than plain rocks, creating a more stable surface that sheds water easily.
Gravel is available in a number of different colour and designs. We supply the greatest stones for driveways and we’ve got many options available for you. With such a large range of colours and sizes for the different stones, you are sure to get exactly what you want when contacting our team.
Life span: Up to 25 years
Capable of lasting up to a century when laid properly, block paving driveways have a lot of character, making them a great option for added curb appeal. Made of tough granite, flagstone or other stone, pavers require little maintenance and prevent water from pooling.
Using blocks can achieve many different laying patterns, one of the most popular is the herringbone pattern; as it offers the strongest bond due to its interlocking.
One of the reasons people choose block paving is because of the stylish choices, available in a range of colours and the ability to lay them in a range of designs and patterns, and now with a choice of shaped and sized blocks, the possibilities are endless.
