    We hope you had a good Christmas and New Year. Welcome to Complete Driveway Designs’ 11th year. After celebrating a successful 10th anniversary last year, our aim is to make 2014 even better for ourselves and our customers.

    Over the next few weeks we will be telling you about the latest product that we are going to be specialising in – resin bonded stone. It can be used for driveways, patios and a host of other surfaces, and gives a great looking smooth finish that is strong enough for heavy vehicles, and highly weather resistant.

    Pattern Imprinted Concrete Driveways For 2011

    The driveway is one of the first thing visitors will see as they approach a house and so it’s only right that homeowners are beginning to treat this vital part of the house  with a sense of pride. Gone are the days when the drive was just somewhere to park your car, more and more people want their driveway to complement and even add to the character and value of their homes. Already this is one of the major trends for home improvement work in 2011 with patchy tarmac and loose flags being replaced by high quality, easy-to-maintain pattern imprinted concrete driveways.

    The Concrete Network, one of the largest and most important international resources for users of concrete, called imprinted concrete the most popular new method “for creating a feasible and unique design” for a driveway. The concrete driveway is stamped imprinted with a range of patterns, closely resembling expensive brick, tile or stone but can be installed for a fraction of the cost of these materials. These imprinted concretes are also available in a range of colours, from the tried-and-tested popular Steadman Buff to the on-trend Plum, helping homeowners to make their driveways one-of-a-kind, attractive features.

    In these times, when money is on everybody’s minds and we rarely have the time to spare, it’s great to know that pattern imprinted concrete driveways are affordable and easily maintained, and have real curb appeal.

    Plant Now For Next Year, Organise Driveway As Well

    If you’ve got green thumbs and enjoy spending time in the garden, you’ll know that over the last couple of months it’s been the right time for planting bulbs and completing a few other seasonal garden tasks. Now winter is approaching, and there are a few things that need to be sorted. Planting bulbs around this time of year means that, when spring arrives, you’ll have plenty of flowers. And contacting us now to find out about pattern imprinted concrete driveways means that by spring you could be ready to go with your installation.

    Installing pattern imprinted concrete driveways should ideally take place during drier periods, and obviously these are less frequent in autumn and winter. But that doesn’t mean that you should put off thinking about your driveway surfacing needs until next year.

    Get in touch with us now for a free, no-obligation quotation, or to get answers to any questions specific to your property. Then you’ll have an idea of our rates, which should help you with budgeting.

    Of course, if you’re not planning on investing any money into the exterior of your property until next year, you do have the luxury of really looking around at possibilities. We’d suggest that our case studies are a good place to start. And if you do get a quote from us, it’ll give you something to compare against any other contractors you speak to.

    Leave Your Car On The Driveway

    Parking charges in towns – even small towns in the north west – can be pretty steep these days. And for those of us who live and work in the same town, it might make more sense to leave your car on your driveway. The money you save on parking charges and petrol could soon add up, and if you switch from driving to walking or cycling it could have a real health benefit as well.

    Of course, if you’re going to be leaving your vehicle parked in front of your house day-to-day, you’ll want a durable surface to leave it on. That’s where a pattern imprinted concrete driveway comes in. Excellent quality and excellent value for money, a CD Designs imprinted concrete drive is a solution to your parking problems and definite home improvement.

    While it might seem counter-intuitive at first, investing in a driveway (which, don’t forget, could add to the re-sale value of your property) and leaving the car at home could work out to be cheaper in the long run than continuing to pay expensive parking fees.

    If you think that getting a contractor to come and install a pattern imprinted concrete driveway is the right decision for you and your property, we’re the people to talk to. And remember, we offer free, no obligation quotes.

    Imprinting Concrete Takes Attention To Detail

    We’ve got a reputation across the north west for installing excellent pattern imprinted concrete driveways, patios, and other related products. And we’ve built that reputation by working hard, by knowing what we’re doing, and by paying attention to detail.

    We pay attention to detail when we meet our clients. By listening to what you want to get from our property, we can properly explain what it’s possible to achieve with pattern imprinted concrete. And it means we can offer the best possible driveway design advice.

    And we pay attention while we’re installing your pattern imprinted concrete driveway. It ensures that the standard of work we deliver to each client is always as high as possible. After all, nothing damages a contractor’s reputation as quickly as dissatisfied and disgruntled customers. So, we like to keep you sweet. Every stage of the driveway  installation process – from initial excavation to the final tidy – is done properly.

    If you’ like to see some examples of the results of our attention to detail, there are quite a few in our case studies. As you should be able to see, we’re good at what we do. So, if you’d like to get in contact with a contractor that isn’t going to cut corners, and is going to leave you with a high quality pattern imprinted concrete driveway, remember that we provide free, no-obligation quotations.
