Thinking of designing a new driveway for your home this year? Have you ever thought about aggregates instead of the usual paving slab or brick look? Aggregates not only achieve an attractive finish, but they are also durable and highly affordable. This makes aggregates a very popular option for homeowners seeking a driveway makeover.
At Stone & Surfaces Direct, we have a wide range of colours and textures of aggregates available to not only help your driveway serve its intended purpose but to help it look good as a feature of your home.
The great thing about aggregates is that they can be as bold or as subtle as you wish, depending on the type of aesthetic you are looking to achieve. Our collection of aggregates is extensive. We offer everything from slate chippings and slate paddlestones to crushed rock fines and grit sand. Discover a wide range of choices here.
As well as looking great, aggregates are also a good choice from a safety perspective. Compared to other concrete or stone finishes, aggregates are much more coarse, providing better traction for vehicles and making them slip-resistant for pedestrians. This also makes them a perfect option if you have children who like to play outside.
Aggregates are also ideal for withstanding day to day life, driveway traffic, and the ever-changing climate conditions because of their excellent structural integrity. When you choose aggregates, you can expect your driveway to look good for many years to come.
Suppose you aren’t somebody who loves gardening and maintaining the outside of your home. In that case, aggregates are a fantastic solution because they are very low maintenance. When you lay down a paving slab or brick driveway, the chance of weeds and moss sprouting is high, which can make your driveway look messy and poorly maintained.
Choosing aggregates reduces this problem and leaves you with barely any maintenance jobs. Occasionally you may want to wash the aggregates down or consider sealing them. Still, other than that, an aggregate driveway could not be simpler to upkeep.
