    Testimonial – Hough Way, Harwood

    We recently received a lovely card of recommendation at TheBestOfBury, from a customer whose pattern imprinted concrete driveway we installed in March at Hough Way in Harwood. Here’s what they had to say:-

    “Your people worked hard and told us what they were doing every step of the way. They respected us and our property and cleaned up everyday. We now have a drive to be proud of. We would strongly recommend this firm. Ray and Val.”

    We love getting testimonials like this, as it’s great to see that our customers appreciate our work. Above and below are before and after photos, so that you can see for yourself the driveway that Ray and Val are so pleased with.

    As you can see from the first photo, the drive was a messy combination of tarmac and flags, with an uneven border edge. The finished driveway has a much cleaner edge, with the main Grand Ashlar pattern complimenting the brick patterned border. The colour used for this installation is Steadman Buff with a chocolate release.

    During February we were delighted to find out that we were the ‘Most Loved’ driveway and patio business in Bury on thebestofbury website. They were running a promotion called ‘14 Days Of Love’, a Valentine’s Day tie-in finding the best businesses in the area based on the number of recommendations that they got, and we came top. Not only were we the most recommended driveway and patio company in Bury, we were the third most in the entire country!

    We’re thankful that so many of you are finding the time to give a review of our work, and delighted that you are so pleased with it. We will continue to give you the best driveways and patios possible, and in doing so hope to get many more reviews, so that by this time next year we will be number one in the country.

    Movers and Shakers

    We received the award from Bestofbury's Phil Fellone

    In earlier blog entries we told you about our move to a new yard and office, and also about 2013 being our 10th year in business. In part due to these, and also because of our two big new contracts with McDonald’s for their pattern imprinted drive-thru’s, we have been awarded the ‘Movers and Shakers’ award by the bestofbury, which recognises local businesses that have done something extraordinary that month.

    The award came with a full page interview with our director Tim (pictured above) in thebestofbury magazine, and also a segment in the Bury Independent newspaper, which states “A key factor in Complete Driveway Designs’ success and continued development has been their ability to win large commercial contracts and still offer a high standard of workmanship on domestic projects”.

    If you would like to take a look at the newspaper article, it was printed in the Bury Independent on the 8th March, and is also available to view on their website.
