Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my driveway last?
It will last a lifetime, with such a solid foundation and with concrete being as strong a substance as it is, it will never sink, and with resealing when necessary, it will never fade. A Grand Impressions driveway is one of the best investments you can make to enhance not only the value of your property but also the kerb appeal for years to come.
How long will it take to complete?
Based on an average sized driveway of around 50 sqm, it would take us 1-2 days to excavate and prep the area ie install the drainage, edgers and shuttering etc. it would then take us 1 day to lay, colour and imprint the concrete. We would then need to return to wash the area and another day to seal the area. So all in all on average we would require 5 days from start to finish.
What's the cost in comparison to block paving, tarmac or resin?
The groundwork should be the same for all so working on that basis, it is no more expensive to install blocks and sand than it is to lay concrete and colour. Tarmac is twice as expensive to purchase as concrete alone but of course we need to add colour and return to your property to wash off the area plus apply the sealant so again pretty similar. We are unaware what resin would cost to install but in our experience we have never seen a cheaper quote for resin than one we have provided for pattern impressed concrete.
What's the up keep/maintenance with pattern impressed concrete?
That is the beauty of choosing pattern impressed concrete, and one of the main advantages, no more weeds and no more sinking means no more maintenance. However we do recommend re-sealing the area every 2-5 years depending on its usage to protect the colour and always keep it looking tip top at an average cost of £1 per square metre. The sealant is easily applied by the purchaser with just a dip of the broom and a spread over the surface. Alternatively, we also offer a resealing service, so please feel free to ask for a quote.
