A Guide to Choosing a Driveway Design Installation

Your driveway is the access point to your home and is what everyone sees when they first pull up to your property, so it must look good. If you are renovating your home or just feel it’s time to spruce up your driveway, there are several driveway designs to choose from. However, it can be hard to know which driveway contractor to pick and what driveway installation to choose.

 

This is our guide to choosing your new driveway design.



Budget

The first step is to determine your budget. Driveways can range in price from a few thousand pounds to tens of thousands of pounds, so it's essential to have a realistic idea of what you're willing to spend. You can reach out to several driveway contractors to get a quote for the kind of designs you like and then base your design on how much money is in your budget.


Size

Once you know your budget, you can start to think about the size of your driveway. The average driveway is about 3 to 5 metres wide, but you may have a larger or smaller driveway depending on the size of your home and the number of vehicles you have. The size of your driveway will impact your budget and the designs you can choose from.


Material

There are a variety of different materials to choose from when it comes to driveways. The most common materials include asphalt, concrete and pavers. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, so you'll need to decide which one is right for you.

 

-      Asphalt: Asphalt is the most affordable option, and it's also one of the most durable. Asphalt driveways can last for many years, but they may require more maintenance than other materials.

 

-      Concrete: Concrete is a more expensive option than asphalt, but it's also more durable. Concrete driveways can last for decades, and they require less maintenance than asphalt.

 

-      Pavers: Pavers are a more expensive option than asphalt or concrete, but they offer a unique look and feel. Paver driveways can be made from a variety of materials, including brick, stone, and concrete.
