A new driveway is a big investment, so it’s important to get it right when deciding what kind of surface you do and do not want. Here are a few pointers on factors to consider before you make your final selection.
What kinds of things should I think about?
One immensely essential thought is the thing that you might want your driveway to look like. Particularly if it's an extensive area, it's imperative to pick a look you can live with. Tarmac, gravel, block paving, resin etc are all very different and will create different looks. A good way to decide which you prefer is to view what options neighbors, friends and family have gone for and how their drives look. Good contractors will also have a portfolio of past works with photos they can show you, so you get an idea of what each surface type looks like over larger areas.
