    Shared Driveways Still Causing Problems

    Some properties share parking areas with another home; this is unavoidable. And driveway sharing can cause friction between neighbours. The issues that could cause arguments can be split into two broad groups: the way a driveway is used, and the upkeep of the shared area.

    There’s not much we can tell you about using your shared driveway that you won’t already know. Assuming you’re a reasonable person, we’re sure you won’t take advantage of the situation. If your neighbour doesn’t respect the balancing act necessary when you’re sharing a communal area, polite communication should sort the problem out in most cases. If it escalates, there are a number of routes open to you.

    When it comes to upkeep, however, we can help you. Repair and resurfacing costs will usually be split equally between the households which access the drive. So, when you’re looking to resurface a shared driveway, you want a solution that’s value for money and that will keep everyone happy.

    Pattern imprinted concrete is the way to go. A pattern imprinted concrete driveway looks impressive and while last for a long time. Investing in surfacing your shared driveway with pattern imprinted concrete should keep all parties happy; we doubt even the most awkward of neighbours will have a problem with the finished product. Not sure? Show them our case studies, and see if that doesn’t convince them.

      In the UK concrete patterned driveways are becoming even more popular as an alternative to more traditional driveways such as brick and tarmac. The benefits of selecting pattern imprinted concrete paving include that is does not fade, there are many colours and patterns to decide from. It’s also free of weeds, stain resistant and proves to be very low maintenance and can last for ages.
