What Type Of Driveway Is Best?
Choosing the best type of driveway depends on the area and the traffic the driveway might get. For example, a gravel driveway is considered a very affordable option, probably the best option for a low cost driveway, whilst a block paved driveway would be considered a more expensive option. Yet, it is the best option for a custom-tailored driveway area.
From pure durability, a concrete driveway would be considered the most durable, followed by a resin driveway; however, a concrete driveway cannot be customised (standard concrete, not imprinted concrete which is a separate surface and not as durable).
Concrete Driveways: The original hard type of driveway surface and still fairly popular around houses on paths and similar. Very durable and hard wearing, low cost but very plain finish
Block Paving: This type of driveway is the most popular option the market. Block paving is a concrete product laid on sand and is available in multiple colours and sizes for installation in various patterns. Not quite as hard-wearing as a concrete driveway but considered fairly durable.
Resin Bound: The new kid on the block compared to the other surfacing types. UV resin is mixed with a natural stone chip laid on either a porous concrete base or a permeable tarmac base. Durable and very customisable.
Asphalt / Tarmac: The oldest type of surfacing style is outside of concrete. Tarmac itself is fairly rare for a driveway and most driveways are now laid using stone mastic asphalt (SMA) and limited in customisation with mostly either a black or red finish. Durability is good but does not match block paving or concrete for sustained endurance. Its prone to unravelling if you have an oil leak or diesel leak from your car.
Gravel Stone: The most affordable option for any driveway and has been used for as long as people needed a semi-tough surface to park or drive on. Customisable is limited to the natural stone colours, gold, flint, autumn, granite and other similar natural colours. Over years of use, expect to lose a stone to the wheels, slowly crushing them into dust or the gravel breaking free. It will need to be topped up every five years or so.
Regardless of the surface type, most surfacing styles, paving, concrete, resin or asphalt should have a minimum lifespan of 10 years, provided the work is done to a high standard and some maintenance is carried out yearly.
