So many options to choose from when you want to have a new driveway installed. You can choose to go with block paving which is a versatile option or you can opt for tarmac as the more traditional solution.
However there is more options becoming commonplace. For example, resin bonded driveways, gravel driveways, imprinted concrete to name just a few of them.
Picking the right option for you can depend on your budget and also the function of the driveway. Choosing the right contractor can go a long way with providing clear cut choices and a breakdown of the types of driveways that are available to install.
They can provide recommendations on the type of base that should be installed, if you will need membrane sheeting for the driveway, what type of drainage is required and what surface will be best suited to your requirements.
Block Paving Driveways
Block paving comes in a wide range of colours and styles. Ranging from a smooth crisp finish to a tumbled and cobblestone style block. The most popular type of paving comes from the Kilsaran range of Lismore and Corrib. They can be laid in a variety of patterns and styles and are suitable for all types of residential driveways.
Ah, the oldest modern form of driveways! Better value on larger open driveways and can be matched up with any other type of product. Very common to see a tarmac driveway installed with a paving border, granite edging or paving patterns put in the center of it. Tarmac or asphalt are not as long lasting as a block paved driveway but they are most certainly easier to maintain.
Gravel driveways are the most affordable of all options. Great value on large driveways when compared to other options. Generally you will want to have kerbing or a paved border around it to help contain it. Very important to ensure a solid base is underneath and that you use a form of weed control to stop weeds growing up through it. Huge choices in size and colours of the stone.
