Driveways aren’t often the scene of crimes, but we’ve heard news of an increasing amount of opportunistic car thefts. You may well have seen it in the local of national news. It seems that people are leaving their cars running unattended in the mornings, as part of that traditional winter process of trying to get into your car, and then make it safe to drive. De-icing your car is frustrating, but imagine how much more frustrating it’d be if, as soon as you’d got all the ice off, someone came along and drove off in it. So, we’d suggest that you remain vigilant in the morning, and never leave you car unattended if the keys are in it, even if it is on your own driveway.
Cold, frosty nights make for frozen up cars. This can add precious minutes to your morning routine. And, of course, it means standing around in the freezing cold trying to de-ice your windscreen and un-stick the doors of your car. It’s no fun.
Consider installing gates and fences for added home security; that’s peace of mind, as well as another value-boosting addition to your property. We can install both gates and fences along with pattern imprinted concrete driveways. We can either do this at the same time as we install your pattern imprinted concrete drive, or after the fact, adding fences and gates to a pattern imprinted concrete driveway previously provided by us or by any other contractor.
Struggling to keep your driveway ice-free during winter? Look into de-icing methods that won’t damage your car or your pattern imprinted concrete driveway; consider laying sand to make the walk to your car a little easier (it adds grip). And a kettle full of not-quite-boiling water can do wonders for frozen up cars.
