Keeping It in The Family with a New Driveway in Altrincham!
As an established driveway company with a great reputation for professionalism and superior workmanship, Planet Surfacing are known throughout the Greater Manchester area by many local construction companies. We often work in conjunction with these on projects. It is our experience that when homeowners start a renovation project it often leads to other work including a new driveway.
A case in point was a recent new driveway in Altrincham that we laid. We were asked by a fellow builder to install a pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Altrincham at his mother in laws house. She had recently had the front of her house rendered and new windows fitted. Having modernised the outside of the house, she turned her attention to updating her driveway so as to complement the house.
Our client opted for the classic combination of standard London cobble for the pattern, coloured in classic grey. While this has a very traditional appearance, reflecting as the name suggests, cobble stones, when coloured in classic grey gives it a more contemporary feel. The colour perfectly complemented the anthracite window frames, front door and garage door, nicely tying everything together.
As with any pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Altrincham, because it is not porous, somewhere for surface water to flow into has to be provided. As a result, we fitted an ACO drain along the front of the property where the driveway meets the house. We ran it into the planter under the window ensuring it was discreet. Including the drain ensured that the new driveway in Altrincham was SUDS compliant.
The final stage of laying the pattern imprinted concrete driveway in Altrincham was to cover the surface with an acrylic seal with anti-slip. This coating protects the concrete and gives it a lovely shine. The anti-slip agent in it gives it grip making it easy to walk and drive over.
Not only does this new driveway in Altrincham look great but, from a practical point of view, it also created more space for parking cars which adds value to any home, especially in areas like Altrincham where parking is at a premium. You can see what it looks like from the photographs included.
