A Quick Overview of the Materials We Work With

Tarmac – Tarmac is a widely used surfacing material due to its affordability and durability. It is flexible, allowing it to withstand weather conditions and heavy traffic. Tarmac's smooth finish offers easy maintenance and excellent skid resistance – hence why it’s always on a driveway company’s menu. However, it may require occasional sealing to prevent cracks and potholes from forming over time, so Worthing residents who want something very low maintenance might want to go for something else. Its black appearance may not suit all aesthetic preferences but can complement modern designs.

Resin Bonding – Resin bonding combines a strong resin with aggregates to create a highly durable and visually appealing surface. Used for far more than just resin bound driveways around Worthing, it’s also ideal for garden paving and patio laying. It offers a wide range of colours and finishes, providing versatility in design. Resin bonding is known for its excellent resistance to UV rays, chemicals, and staining. Another huge draw is that it’s permeable, allowing water to drain through, which helps to prevent puddles and reduce the risk of flooding. However, resin bonding may require periodic resealing to maintain its appearance – something we can offer as your local driveway company.

Block Paving – Made from individual bricks or blocks, block paving is a popular choice for driveways and pathways, and also patio laying. Its interlocking design provides strength and durability. Block paving offers a wide variety of colours, patterns, and textures, allowing for creative and unique designs. It is relatively easy to repair by replacing individual blocks if needed. However, it may be prone to weed growth in the joints, requiring occasional maintenance.

Concrete – Concrete is a versatile and cost-effective surfacing material that offers durability and longevity. It’s used for these reasons when we’re tackling the groundworks for property extensions around Worthing. It is available in various finishes, including smooth, textured, or stamped, providing flexibility in design options. Concrete can withstand heavy loads and is resistant to weathering and fading. However, it may develop cracks over time, requiring occasional repairs.
