Driveway types

Types of driveways constructed by Banbury Driveways

Concrete driveway

 

Concrete driveways have become old fashioned these days and are mainly now used as imprinted concrete to make it appear like block paving.

Please note we do not do imprinted concrete drives, if you want your drive imprinted to look like block paving then have it block paved.


Gravel-Shingle driveways

 

Gravel-Shingle is an attractive alternative for driveways.

Gravel-Shingle driveways do not need to be very deep; a depth of 75 mm (3 inches) is usually sufficient for driveways and paths. Additional gravel can be added at a later date if required.

Tyres on drives tend to pick up 10 mm gravel, so it is recommended to use a minimum size of 20 mm gravel for driveways.


Tarmac Drives

Tarmacadam, which is often (incorrectly) referred to as Tarmac™ is perfect for areas taking traffic such as roads, driveways and forecourts, and can also be used for paths, playgrounds etc.

The topping finish can even be coloured, several colours are available if requested.
