Driveways & Dropped Kerbs
If you want your property to look its best, you must invest in many things. Whether it is a commercial or residential property, there are a number of improvements that you can make to enhance the value of your property. You can have your driveways installed as one of the exceptional features to give your property the look that you have been dreaming of all your life.
Driveways have become increasingly popular over the past few years. In addition to the advent of new construction technologies, better expertise, quality construction materials, and improved home improvement ideas, these developments have contributed to these advances. Our driveway ideas are listed here to help you understand more about what you need. There are many types of driveways available these days.
When you’re trying to determine which driveway designs are best for you, it’s important to be cautious in your search. Your driveway design will be determined by your budget, your architectural taste, and your aesthetic preferences. You should always choose a driveway type that suits your needs.
If you want to replace uneven ground or old paving in your driveway or back garden, block paving is a great alternative. It adds value to your home as well.
Block paving refers to paving bricks made specifically for driveways. They are cubic in shape. As these driveway pavers are much thicker and stronger than standard pavers, you can park your car on them without having to worry about cracks or breaks appearing in the bricks.
A paving block isn’t just functional; it can also be decorative. Paving your driveway perfectly not only enhances the curb appeal of your home, but it also gives you the chance to display your creative skills.
However, it is important to note that although our driveway concrete blocks are made of concrete, you can’t use them interchangeably with concrete paving slabs. The thinner paving slabs should only be used for patios because they are not thick enough to support the weight of cars on a driveway.
It is amazing how unused spaces can be developed by transforming driveways and paths. With a 10-year warranty, this light will add the wow factor to your home.
We offer a range of styles and colors to suit any home, making our resin driveways not only more versatile than concrete or tarmac driveways, they also require much less maintenance. A beautiful driveway not only enhances the appearance of your home, but can also add value to it, as it aids in creating a good first impression.
In advance of any work being completed, a member of our friendly team will visit your home to plan a bespoke solution for your home.

We provide you with a free, no-obligation quote once we have discussed your plans. Once the job is approved, we are able to schedule a date and time.
A dropped kerb (also known as a footpath crossing or vehicle crossover) allows your vehicle to cross a footpath and go onto your driveway. In order to do this, the kerb is lowered from its normal height, and the path is strengthened to take the weight of the vehicle. Without it, it is possible that the path and any pipes beneath it might be damaged as a result. Driving over a footway without dropping the kerb is against the law, and you could be subject to enforcement action.
Basically, a dropped kerb is the dip between the path and the kerb which allows you to park on your house’s driveway. This project drops the kerb from its normal height and repairs the path to support the weight of vehicles as well. In the absence of this, the path and any pipes buried under it could be damaged.
Despite being on a public highway, the crossing can be used by anyone. It is our responsibility to maintain it.
