If you’re considering any home-improvement purchase there are a number of things you should consider, especially when it’s something as long-lasting as a concrete driveway. The larger the project the more thought needs to go into it, and the benefits of having done so will be obvious when you look at the final product.
First of all, you need to make sure that the product fits your needs. There’s a lot of information on this blog about the benefits of concrete driveways, and we’re confident that 9 times out of 10 it’s the right choice for the customer. However, you should still have a look at examples of driveways surfaced with other materials, and various different potential concrete driveway designs and layouts; our case studies webpage is a good place to start. As well as helping you make your mind up, it should provide you with some interesting design ideas.
Once you’re a hundred percent sure that you want a concrete driveway, it’s time to look for contractors. Always go for contractors who have got a lot of on-the-job of experience, who’re an established firm, and who ideally have a permanent address and some reliable contact details. And it might serve you well to be a little suspicious of anyone who quotes a price that’s a lot lower than other contractors who you’ve spoken to; there’s usually a catch, and no one likes giving their hard-earned money to cowboys and rip-off merchants.
There’s no harm in getting quotes from a handful of contractors in order to find out who you think is right for the task. The quote process will also throw up anything about your particular property that might need to be considered or dealt with during the installation process. These factors can be very varied, from drainage to traffic-rate, but a contractor who knows what they’re doing – like us – will be able offer solutions to these issues which conform to your overall driveway design.
