What You Should Know Before Installing a New Driveway

As tarmac contractors in Cardiff, we provide complete driveway installation and road resurfacing. We find it rather common that many homeowners don’t realize they need to fully prepare their driveway before they lay down the tarmac.

Other tarmac contractors in Cambridge and beyond might not inform them of the need to properly repair their property, leading to expensive repairs not too far down the road.

Luckily, we aren’t one of those teams. Here’s what you need to know before you hire tarmac contractors in Bristol lay your new driveway.

A poorly laid driveway can cost you big time.

The cost of a newly laid driveway in the UK hovers around £2,900. That’s not a cost that can be easily swallowed by most homeowners. Can you afford to pay that price twice? If you’re like most folks, probably not.

On top of that, maintenance costs can rise each year. If the driveway is bad enough, it could even cause damage to your vehicle, furthering the costs your incur.

Don’t hire contractors who don’t specialise in the material you’re selected.

It might seem like all contractors are created equal, but we’re not. Some specialise in brick while others like us, specialise in tarmac. The quality of your driveway will be directly affected by the team you choose. Choose a team who understands the material you’ve chosen if you want the best results.

Match the material colour with your home.

In other words, make sure to do a bit of planning in selecting the material you want to use. Some contractors may even be able to blend the colouring to match your home and landscaping, but that can be more expensive. However, if you’re serious about improving the value of your property, this is one of the only ways to do it.

Verify warranties and guarantees before signing contracts.

As tarmac contractors in Cardiff, we provide both warranties on the materials we use and guarantees on the work we do. If you don’t hire experts who offer them, you could end up out thousands if something goes wrong.

If you’ve decided to go with tarmac as your driveway material of choice, contact our team. We’d love to help you get the driveway you want.
