Popular Driveway Types
There are plenty of options when it comes to popular driveway types. Some work best in certain situations while others will work in any location. Working with an expert in driveways will always help you pick the best. But there are some good options to start considering.
Top of the list is concrete. This is popular for urban and suburban locations and is often called cement although this isn’t entirely accurate. It is budget friendly and quick to install and can work with any shape or layout. It has a great lifespan and doesn’t require too much maintenance.
Asphalt is another flexible option that can be even cheaper than concrete and works for different shapes and layouts. It is very weather resistant but does need a little more maintenance than concrete as cracks and holes will need to be patched.
Gravel is a popular driveway option that uses a mix of rock, sand and clay to create a low cost driveway style. There’s lots of colour options and it can work for any shape of driveway. Maintenance can be a little trickier and there’s a need to de-weed it regularly.
Brick or block paving driveways are very visually pleasing and can work over uneven ground. They are comfortable underfoot and relatively easy to care for. Costs can vary depending on the type you choose and there is the need to de-weed between the stones.
