Resurfacing the Driveway: What Are My Options?


If you are planning to resurface your driveway, or are finishing off a new build, there are quite a few options. The two factors that make for a good driveway are; aesthetic appeal and durability, and with that in mind, here are a few of the popular materials that are used today.

  • Block Paving– Block paving ticks all the boxes as far as the homeowner is concerned, and with a very durable finish and stunning designs, you can have a driveway that will stand the test of time. The supplier would no doubt have many images of previous projects, which will give you some idea of what is possible with block paving.
  • Traditional Tarmac– Take a look at some of the best tarmac driveways in Stourbridge and you will realise why tarmac is a favourite among UK homeowners. The tarmac should be at least 4 inches deep, which will ensure that it remains for many years, and with some attractive edging stones, you have the perfect driveway.
  • Resin Bond– A resin bond driveway offers a loose pebble look, but without the loose pebbles, as the clear resin is premixed with the aggregate to ensure that there are no loose stones. The resin is elastic and moves as the driveway expands and contracts, which ensures the surface does not crack or split.

Whatever material you choose, make sure that the supplier has extensive experience with installing that type of driveway, and with a long warranty, your new driveway wil be a major feature of the property.
