Get your driveway installed properly by your local professional family run paving company

Which Type of Driveway Should I Choose?

There are several important THINGS to take into consideration when deciding which type of driveway to have installed on your property.

Each different type of driveway drastically alters the look of a property: the same house with a gravel driveway will look totally different if it had an imprinted concrete driveway for example. Then there are also the different colours, patterns and designs, how long each different material will last, the different quality of materials, how much use the driveway will be expecting to have. How much maintenance you are willing to undertake and also how much value is added to the property verses the initial cost of the new driveway, and which option actually compliments the property rather just being an improvement. And then on top of that you need to decide which paving contractor to have carry out the work.

Unbiased Expert Advice

If you are after unbiased advice when looking for a paving contractor to advise you on the best driveway option for your individual situation, it is far better to receive advice from a business highly experienced in constructing each one of all the different driveway construction methods and materials rather than a driveway business only competent on just one or two options. This is because most paving contractors will give you all the reasons to choose the finish they prefer working with instead of which one is best for you.

When Castle Paving visit, view your property and discuss your specific requirements you can be confident that we will give you recommendations that are best for you rather than rather than influencing you which is best (easiest and most profitable) for ourselves, taking into account not just your budget but what you are tyring to achieve.

The Advantages and Disadvantages of the Different Driveway Finishes

Unfortunately, there is not one type of driveway finish that overshadows all other options, there are just too many differences to take into consideration. Below is a list that will give you a bit of an overview, but for more detailed information please click on the ‘find out more’ tabs below for full details.

Happy Customers

"A BIG BIG thank you this crew just had a new driveway installed and what a job they have done, My friend recommended this company to me as she recently had her patio done I'm so happy i went with these guys very professional, always on time, talked me through the whole process and absolutely spotless at the end of the job."

M.T.

"Can't recommend these guys enough. We had another company cancel on us last minute and to be honest I'm glad they did, otherwise we wouldn't have discovered Castle paving. I had a detailed plan to completely re-landscape my garden and the Castle lads blitzed the whole thing in under a week, doing an absolutely quality job in the process."
