The best material for a driveway depends on your budget, needs, and preferences. Some popular options include asphalt, concrete, pavers, and gravel. Paving blocks are a durable option that can withstand lots of use. Paving stones and tiles offer a more customizable appearance. We offer certified North Somerset Assured installation of quality block paving from Bradstone.
The cost of a driveway installation can vary depending on the size of the driveway, the materials used, and the complexity of the project.
The lifespan of a driveway depends on the material used and the quality of the installation. Our Bradstone driveways can last for many years or more, with minimal maintenance needed to retain their structure and style.
The best value for money you can get is block paving. They are built to last – most for 25 years in fact. There is a lot of design customisation that can be implemented giving you freedom to choose your style. If individual segments of the driveway become damaged, each damaged block can be raised rather than the whole drive needing relaying. Finally, they’re very low maintenance meaning that they can be swept clean or washed with a garden hose.
The best material for a patio depends on your budget, needs, and preferences. Some popular options include concrete, pavers, and stone. Paving stones/blocks are a durable option that is easy to maintain. Our pavers offer a more customisable appearance. The stone is a natural option that can add a touch of elegance to your patio.
The lifespan of a patio depends on the material used and the quality of the installation. Concrete patios typically last 20-30 years, while paver patios can last 50 years or more if they are properly maintained. Stone patios can last a lifetime if they are properly sealed and maintained.
The best way to maintain your patio is to clean your patio regularly to remove dirt, debris, and stains.
We offer a selection of styles and shaped patios. First, we help you decide where it would be best to locate your patio – maybe an outside seating area or that corner of the garden that the sun really hits! You can choose a circular, angular or free form styled patio design too.
