Why Choose a Block Paving Driveway

Block paving, also known as brick paving, is another popular option for driveway surfaces. Here are some reasons why you might choose block paving:

Versatility and Design Options: Block paving offers a wide range of design options, allowing you to create unique patterns, color combinations, and even incorporate different types of bricks or stones. This versatility allows you to customize your driveway to match the style and aesthetic of your home.

Durability: Block paving is known for its durability and ability to withstand heavy loads. The individual blocks are interlocked, creating a strong and stable surface that can handle vehicular traffic without any damage.

Easy Repairs: If any individual blocks become damaged or stained over time, they can be easily replaced without affecting the rest of the driveway. This makes repairs more straightforward and cost-effective compared to other types of driveways. If access is ever required to underground services, the blocks can be lifted and replaced making all repairs invisible.

Permeability: Block paving can be laid with permeable materials or with gaps between the blocks, allowing water to drain through the surface. This helps prevent the accumulation of standing water and reduces the risk of water damage or flooding.

Low Maintenance: Block paving requires relatively low maintenance. Regular sweeping and occasional power washing can help keep the surface clean and remove debris. Additionally, any jointing sand between the blocks can be topped up periodically to maintain stability.

Safety: The textured surface of block paving provides good traction for both vehicles and pedestrians. It offers slip resistance, especially when compared to smooth surfaces like concrete.

Longevity: Block paving has a long lifespan, especially when properly installed and maintained. With proper care, it can withstand the elements and retain its appearance for many years.

Eco-Friendly Options: Some block paving products are made from recycled materials, contributing to sustainability efforts and reducing environmental impact.

It’s important to note that block paving installation requires expertise and proper ground preparation. It’s advisable to consult with a professional contractor who can ensure the correct base construction, proper drainage, and precise laying of the blocks to maximize the durability and aesthetics of your driveway.

Tarmac Driveways

For a tarmac driveway to last, no shortcuts can be taken with any preparation and it is essential that good quality tarmac must be used. If the job is carried out properly a tarmac drive will last for decades and with occasional cleaning will stay looking as good as it was first laid and easily withstand the weight of heavy vehicles and high traffic. JD Drives and Patios are a local business you can trust to install top quality tarmac driveways that last. Feel free to call to arrange a free quotation.

Why Choose a Tarmac Driveway

Tarmac is a popular choice for driveway surfaces for several reasons:

Durability: Tarmac driveways are known for their durability and long lifespan. When properly installed and maintained, they can withstand heavy loads, such as cars and trucks, without sustaining any damage.

Flexibility: Tarmac is a flexible material that can adapt to the natural movement of the ground, which helps prevent cracking and damage caused by freezing and thawing cycles. It can withstand temperature fluctuations better than rigid materials like concrete.

Quick installation: Tarmac driveways can be installed relatively quickly compared to other driveway materials. Once the base is prepared, asphalt can be laid and compacted efficiently, minimising disruption to your daily routine and any neighbours.

Cost-effective: Tarmac is generally more cost-effective compared to other materials like concrete or pavers especially over larger areas. The initial installation cost of asphalt is typically lower, it also requires fewer repairs and maintenance expenses over time.

Ease of repair: In the event of damage, asphalt driveways are relatively easy to repair. Small cracks and potholes can be filled and patched, extending the lifespan of the driveway. Additionally, routine maintenance like sealcoating can help protect the surface and maintain its appearance.

Enhanced safety: Tarmac provides a smooth, skid-resistant surface for vehicles. It offers better traction in all weather conditions, reducing the risk of accidents caused by slippery surfaces.

Aesthetics: Many homeowners prefer the sleek, black appearance of tarmac driveways. They can complement a wide range of architectural styles and landscaping choices and there are an endless range of different coloured  and shaped blocks available to compliment and frame the tarmac .

It’s important to note that proper installation and regular maintenance are crucial for maximizing the benefits of an asphalt driveway. This includes addressing any cracks or potholes promptly, sealing the surface periodically, and ensuring proper drainage to prevent water damage. Consulting with a professional contractor is recommended to ensure a quality installation.

Our experienced team combines artistic design with cutting-edge techniques to bring your driveway vision to life. Whether you desire a rustic, modern, or classic look, we offer an extensive array of patterns and colours, allowing you to choose the perfect finish to match your home.

Why Choose an Imprinted Concrete Driveway

Imprinted concrete, also known as stamped concrete, is a popular choice for driveway surfaces due to the following reasons:

 Aesthetics: Imprinted concrete offers a wide range of decorative options and can mimic the appearance of more expensive materials like stone, brick, or tile for a fraction of their costs. It allows you to achieve various patterns, textures, and colors, giving your driveway a unique and visually appealing look that can complement your home’s style.

Durability: Imprinted concrete is a durable option for driveways. It is constructed with a strong concrete base and a surface that is resistant to cracking and wear. When properly installed and maintained, it can withstand heavy loads and regular vehicle traffic for many years.

Low Maintenance: Imprinted concrete requires minimal maintenance compared to other driveway surfaces. Regular cleaning and occasional resealing can help preserve its appearance and protect it from stains, fading, and weathering. It does not require frequent weeding or joint repairs like some other materials.

Cost-Effective: Imprinted concrete is often more cost-effective compared to natural stone or pavers, offering a similar aesthetic at a lower price point. Additionally, its durability and longevity can contribute to long-term cost savings by reducing the need for frequent repairs or replacements.

Customisation: With imprinted concrete, you have the flexibility to customise your driveway to suit your preferences. You can choose from various patterns, textures, and colors to create a unique design that complements your home’s architecture and landscaping.

Quick Installation: Imprinted concrete can be installed relatively quickly compared to some other driveway materials. Once the ground is prepared, the concrete is poured, stamped with the desired pattern, and sealed. This reduces the disruption to your daily routine and allows for a faster completion of the project.

Weed and Erosion Control: Imprinted concrete provides a solid surface that discourages weed growth and prevents soil erosion. With proper installation and joint sealing, it can minimise weed infestation and maintain the integrity of your driveway.

It’s important to note that proper installation by a skilled professional is crucial for achieving a high-quality imprinted concrete driveway. Attention to detail in terms of the base preparation, concrete mixing, stamping technique, and sealing is essential for durability and long-term performance. Regular maintenance and periodic resealing are also recommended to protect the surface and prolong its lifespan.

Why Choose a Bonded Resin Driveway

Choosing a resin-bound driveway surface offers several advantages:

Aesthetics: Resin-bound driveways provide a sleek and modern appearance that can enhance the overall curb appeal of your property. They offer a smooth and consistent surface, available in a range of colors and finishes, allowing you to create a customized look that complements your home’s style.

Permeability: One of the key benefits of resin-bound driveways is their permeability. The combination of aggregates and a resin binder allows water to drain through the surface, reducing the risk of surface water runoff and aiding in sustainable water management. This can help prevent puddles and minimize the potential for flooding.

Durability: Resin-bound driveways are highly durable and designed to withstand heavy loads and regular vehicle traffic. The resin binder provides strength and stability to the surface, ensuring it can withstand the weight of vehicles without cracking or breaking.

Low Maintenance: Resin-bound driveways require minimal maintenance. They are resistant to weed growth and are easy to clean, typically requiring only occasional sweeping and occasional power washing to remove debris or stains. The surface is smooth and seamless, which prevents the accumulation of dirt and makes maintenance tasks easier.

Safety: Resin-bound surfaces offer good traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls, even when wet. The smooth surface also minimizes the presence of loose stones or gravel, providing a safe and stable walking and driving surface.

Customisation: Resin-bound driveways offer a high level of customisation. You can choose from various types, sizes, and colors of aggregates to create a unique design and pattern that suits your preferences and complements your home’s exterior.

Longevity: When properly installed and maintained, resin-bound driveways have a long lifespan. They are resistant to cracking, fading, and damage caused by UV rays, providing a durable surface that retains its appearance for many years.

Eco-Friendly: Resin-bound surfaces are considered environmentally friendly. Their permeability allows rainwater to infiltrate the ground, reducing the strain on local drainage systems and promoting groundwater recharge. They also eliminate the need for excessive excavation and are often made from recycled materials, contributing to sustainability efforts.

It’s important to note that proper installation by a professional contractor is crucial for achieving a high-quality resin-bound driveway. Attention to detail in terms of surface preparation, resin mixing, and application is essential to ensure a durable and visually appealing result. Regular maintenance, such as resealing the surface as needed, will help preserve its appearance and performance over time.

Gravel Driveways

New Gravel Diveway by JD Drives and Patios Accrington - Gravel Driveway Header Image

Gravel driveways are the perfect solution if you are on a bit of a budget. They provide a timeless charm with rustic elegance, with practicality and give your home a unique and welcoming character. JD Drives and Patios are able to install your gravel driveway and tailor your project to your specific aesthetic preferences. Gravel is available in a diverse range of sizes, colours and materials, so if you are seeking a traditional or contemporary look, our gravel driveways are designed for both visual appeal and durability.

Why Choose a Gravel Driveway

Gravel is a popular choice for driveway surfaces due to the following reasons:

Cost-effective: Gravel is generally more cost-effective compared to other driveway materials like tarmac, blocks or concrete. It is readily available and does not require extensive installation procedures or specialized equipment. This makes it an affordable option for homeowners on a budget.

Easy Installation: Gravel driveways are relatively easy to install. The process involves preparing the base by leveling the ground, adding a layer of compacted aggregate, and spreading the gravel evenly.

Permeability: Gravel driveways are permeable, allowing rainwater to penetrate the surface and percolate into the ground. This helps to prevent water accumulation and reduces the risk of surface runoff, contributing to better water management on your property.

Low Maintenance: Gravel driveways require minimal maintenance. Regular raking or grading can help keep the surface even and remove any debris or vegetation. Additionally, adding fresh gravel periodically can help maintain the appearance and fill in any areas that may have become compacted or worn over time.

Versatility: Gravel is available in a variety of sizes, colors, and textures, allowing you to choose a style that suits your preferences and complements your home’s exterior. This versatility gives you the flexibility to create a unique and personalised look for your driveway.

Natural Appearance: Gravel driveways offer a natural and rustic aesthetic that can blend well with various architectural styles and landscapes. They can create a sense of charm and character, particularly in rural or countryside settings.

Excellent Drainage: The permeable nature of gravel allows for excellent drainage, which helps prevent the accumulation of standing water on the driveway. This can be especially beneficial in areas prone to heavy rainfall or where proper drainage is essential.

Ecologically Friendly: Gravel is an environmentally friendly option as it allows rainwater to infiltrate the ground and promotes groundwater recharge. It reduces the strain on local drainage systems and helps to prevent erosion and sedimentation in nearby water bodies.

It’s important to note that gravel driveways may require occasional maintenance to address issues such as gravel displacement, ruts, or erosion. Installing proper edging, bordering materials and even matting can help contain the gravel and prevent it from spreading. Additionally, it’s advisable to choose a gravel size and type that is suitable for vehicle traffic to ensure durability and minimise tracking of loose gravel onto surrounding areas.

Just a Few of Our 5 Star Reviews

Shrewsbury Driveways 5 Star Reviews

We have used Johnny and his team twice now, first time for just a small addition to drive to park a campervan, and they did such a great job and got on with him so well we asked him to replace our very outdated patio. I still can hardly believe the difference: we love it! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Johnny and his team.

A huge thank you to Johnny and the team from JD Drives for their fantastic work. They completely transformed our driveway in just a few days with minimal noise and disruption. What incredible workmanship and efficiency! Such a great company, our neighbour used them after our new driveway put theirs to shame and they had the same great experience.

We recommend that you get a couple of quotes from other contractors to confirm that you are getting the same recommendations and at a similar price (but make sure that you are being quoted for the same quality of materials, as it’s easy for a contractor to give a lower price just to get the job and then make their profits by using lesser quality materials, and you will probably not realise the difference for a couple of years when your new driveway will look very tired, very quickly). Make sure that you also get written confirmation that they will not increase their price after tey have started work because of a supposedly ‘unforseen complication’.
