It meets you when you get home every night, and it’s the first thing you see as you leave in the morning, no we’re not talking about your other half, but your driveway.
It could be cracking, an eyesore that is a complete mismatch to the rest of your house, or simply not practical for fitting the number of vehicles you may want on it.
That’s where J Lowther & Sons can come to the rescue, with a wide range of driveway restoration options available.
Don’t just take our word for it though, we’ve included four major benefits of driveway restoration, so come and take a look…
Improve the appearance
Having a driveway restoration can help bring back that house-proud feeling, adding a real standout feature to the front of your property.
It can also be designed to suit you and your family’s wishes. From the colour of the brick to the surrounds, it’s all customisable.
Each style can be unique, with a wide range of material choices, such as concrete, brick, cobblestone, block paving and gravel.
Make better use of the area
Driveways are built as standard, usually the same for each house on that street or cul-de-sac. But what if you have a big demand for the use of your driveway? Perhaps a big van or caravan needs to go on there?
By restoring your driveway, the dimensions can be altered to exactly how you want it. If there needs to be less grass and more tarmac/driveway… no problem.
The same can be said for the opposite if there’s no longer a need to fit two cars on the driveway, for example, then more lush greenery can be added, and that will flourish in the summer months.
Parking on the road or in storage may be about to become a thing of the past.
Save money in the long run
Those who are savvy will know that getting a driveway restoration is a perfect way to prolong the lifespan.
Leaving it until it is at breaking point will need a whole new resurfacing, the ground below may need to restoring and the job in hand will become an extremely expensive one.
It will put off future buyers, and no one wants that.
It also removes the wasted time that mini repairs may cost you. No one wants to spend their days off filling in cracks and potholes of your crumbling driveway, so if it gets to this stage, you may as well opt for a full restoration and let the experts take all the labour.
Add value to the property
It’s a major outgoing having to fit a completely new driveway, and seeing one in a terrible state will do you no good when it comes to putting it up for sale.
Not only will a restoration give it that wow factor when people come to view the house, but it will be one less thing off their list of things to ‘fix’.
It’s also highly likely to add value to the property, with working order homes that are ready to move in straight away the most desirable.
