The driveway leading up to the house is one of the first things that people are going to notice as they walk up to your place. It needs to be kept clean and should be in pristine condition as it plays such an important role in the curb appeal of your property. However, because the driveway is constantly exposed to environmental elements, it doesn’t take long before damage starts to appear. There are some pretty common signs of damage that you will begin to notice over time, such as:
- Appearance of potholes
- Wet patches
- Sunken patches
If you want to fix this problem or get a new driveway paved, you should contact a local driveway company in Watford. Here is a brief guide for paving a new driveway.
The first step is to take appropriate measurements of the driveway. If you don’t know how to do this, it would be best to let a professional do the job. Once the measurements have been taken, the company will give you a quote for the costs of installing the driveway depending on the material you choose. You can always negotiate with the company to bring the price down before making a decision.
Ideally, you should supervise the work as it’s being done so that if there is something you want to call out, you can. The pavement will take time to dry so it’s important that the area is cordoned off until it has completely dried.
