Brittney Bronze Driveway with a Cool Misty Grey
WHAT WE DID:
This job had a solid concrete base with a thin layer of tarmac over the top. We removed all the tarmac and then Power Cleaned the concrete beneath.
The driveway was on a slope from front to back causing water to pool in the middle. Here we installed drainage ducts flowing into the main drain. Problem solved!
We also excavated approximately 20m ² to the left of the drive. The usual spec is 150mm of hardcore and 80mm of base tarmac, however when we were excavating the soil was soft and spongy so we ended up digging down around 500mm so we used 3 times the amount of hardcore than usual.
We met the customer halfway on the extra costs and explained why it’s essential the sub-core is correct.
We retained the privets with a charcoal block edge and laid the same block edge on the entrance. Once all the groundwork’s were complete we primed the existing concrete with a resin primer. This protects the concrete and ensures the resin bonds to it perfectly.
We then put in place an aluminium strip to distinguish a border. The whole site was then overlaid with the chosen colours – Misty Grey and Brittney Bronze.
WHAT THEY THOUGHT:
The driveway looks fantastic. Very happy with the finish and the team were friendly and professional. Would definitely recommend.
