Most Frequent Driveway Regrets
Your driveway is often the first thing visitors to your home will see, and you want their first impression to be a positive one! An excellent and durable alternative to paved or gravel driveways, are resin driveways providing a smoother surface area than gravel and better permeability than paving. This helps to reduce the risk of flooding.
By ensuring you’re informed and take the time to think about what you want, you should be able to avoid some of the most common driveway regrets. We’ve outlined just a few of the regrets that customers often come to us with, to ensure you don’t fall into the same trap.
Choosing the Wrong Type of Driveway
Deciding whether a resin driveway is the right option for your home can be tricky. By working with a professional installer, you can get assistance and advice, and possibly also a free survey with a no-obligation quotation.
If you live in an area where flooding risk is a reality, a resin driveway could be right for you, as the surface provides excellent drainage. Those who are looking to make a statement with their driveway will find that resin bound paving is a great option too, as there are different colours and designs available so you can create something truly unique.
We want to ensure that you choose the right type of driveway for your needs, so we’ll help you to work out what those are.
Using Unprofessional Installers
We often hear from people who regret using unprofessional installers. If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Laying resin bound paving in wet weather can lead to foaming, a costly issue that may mean having your entire driveway redone. Installers without experience may use the wrong aggregate to resin ratios or choose the wrong resin for the surface below. This can lead to sub-standard results that don’t look attractive and end up costing you even more money.
Not Asking to See Testimonials
Don’t be afraid to ask to see testimonials from previous customers – this is one of the most common driveway regrets. A reputable company should be happy to share their testimonials with you, as they’ll have nothing to hide.
