Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Driveway & Entrance Terrace in Moor Lane, Torquay
Your driveway, first impressions matter…
Did you know that first impressions are formed in less than seven seconds? Make the first footstep on to your driveway count, with stylish and distinctive block paving! Kerb appeal is real phenomenon and you only get one chance at a first impression. When your visitor – or even potential homebuyer – takes that step, you’ll make the right one. This project certainly lifted first impressions for this property with a granite paved driveway running from kerb to the rear of the house and a matching entrance patio and steps to the front door. And to cap it off a new property dividing wall capped in matching tiles.
There was plenty of clearance work to do at this property with several structures and an old tarmac driveway. Once cleared foundations were dug and set for the property dividing wall new raised patio. The blockwork was completed and rendered then work could begin on the various sub-base layers required to take the block paved driveway to completion.
There are many advantages to the block paving solution – a wide range of design options in terms of colour, shape and style – from monotone to multi-colour as well as the opportunity to create patterns and contrasting borders. Different block materials offer different price options. block paved driveways are also long-lasting and, if installed well, low maintenance – and if you do you have a leak from your car small areas can be patch repaired if necessary! Maintenance is limited to annual wash and brush up but don’t forget if you do give your block-paved driveway a good going over with a pressure washer that you’ll need to brush sharp sand back into the joints to maintain the integrity of the structure!
The finished driveway and patio lift this entire property and give it an instant quality update!
