Why Get A New Driveway Installed This Autumn?

13 Sep 2022

Now that summer is squarely behind us, many people up and down the country are wondering whether or not it’s too late to have a new driveway installed at their homes or offices. For our money, it is definitely not too late to get a new driveway. In fact, now might be the best time to have a driveway installed. 

In this article, we’ll be going through the reasons why you should definitely be considering having a driveway installed this September and October.

Increase Your Curb Appeal

The first reason why you should be thinking about having a new driveway installed this autumn is that it’ll look great going into the deep autumn and winter months – when family and friends come to visit. When everyone on your street (and probably every other street that your family and friends’ street) has a tired, dull driveway, yours will still look bright and new.

What better reason could there be?

Get Away From DIY Repairs and Save Your Money

The fact that you’ll be saving considerable money, of course. Every year, people in the UK pay thousands of pounds in order to repair their driveways, often using expensive, sub-par methods – often leading to sub-par results.

Instead of wasting your money and time, why not get ahead of any possible damage and have a brand new, high-quality, highly durable driveway installed this autumn instead? Cobblecrete’s pattern imprinted concrete has been designed to conform to any design – meaning that you have a wide range of colours to choose from – and to be as durable as possible.

Get Ahead of Post-Winter Thaw

Our driveways withstand the freezing cold better than almost any other surfacing product commercially available today. This is particularly important because the post-winter thaw (which normally occurs anywhere from March to April) can do a real number on asphalt and other forms of surfacing.

This is because water, once trapped in cracks in the asphalt, can actively cause damage to the surfacing as it freezes and thaws. This damage can lead to potholes and other serious damage to the road.

With CobbleCrete’s concrete, however, you have no need to worry about potholes. This is because the pattern which has been imprinted on the surface of the concrete acts as a channel, taking the water away from the surface of the driveway.

So not only do our imprinted concrete driveways look fantastic, but they also help to protect the concrete from the elements.

Because Winter is Too Late

The final reason why you should be considering having a driveway installed this fall is that it will be too late to have a driveway installed during the winter months. During the autumn months – particularly the early autumn months – the weather is still relatively dry, especially in comparison to mid-winter. This means that concrete can be laid quickly and efficiently.

In comparison, it would be near impossible to have a driveway laid during the winter months because of the moisture on the ground.
