If there is one thing that will increase the value and appeal of your property to a potential buyer, it is the inclusion of a drive up to your home. A private driveway allows the owner of the property to step from their car in safety. A number of people are injured or killed every year in the United Kingdom getting out of their cars on a public road. A driveway also offers you somewhere to park your car in safety at night and UK insurance companies will actually reduce your car insurance premium if you park your car on a private drive.
If you look around you, you will see many tarmac driveways in Norwich and surrounding areas and people chose to put tarmac over other surfaces for a number of good reasons. Here are some of those reasons.
- Tarmac driveways are incredibly hard wearing and strong and you should expect your driveway to last from 12 – 20 years if it is properly maintained. Sealing it every 2 to 3 years will certainly help.
- Tarmac is easy to spread and easy to manipulate and so most driveways constructed from tarmac will be ready to drive on in about 24- 48 hours. You can park additional cars with no effect.
- It is the perfect choice for the British weather as it still maintains its good looks even after all the rain that we experience here.
Tarmac driveways are incredibly affordable in the UK and once laid properly, you can expect it to last a large number of years.
