During autumn and winter in the north west, the rain can really set in. That’s when having an area of hard surfaced driveway can really pay off. Some surfacing materials are more susceptible to flooding than others, especially some of the loose surface options like gravel and slate chippings.
A properly installed pattern imprinted drive will have adequate drainage. Drainage needs to be installed to ensure that water doesn’t collect and sit on your driveway. Driveway drainage is also necessary to ensure that rain water isn’t running off your driveway and onto your lawn or the pavement.
Your contractor should take into account issues like drainage when they’re planning your pattern imprinted concrete driveway installation. They should also consider other driveway features like manhole covers, which will need access. Of course, at CD Designs we know our way around these features.
So, if you’re thinking about purchasing a pattern imprinted concrete driveway for your property, we suggest that you keep an eye on how your current driveway responds to the amount of rain it gets over this autumn. If you notice areas where it pools, remember where they are so you can point them out to your contractor when it’s installation time.
