Concrete for Driveways


Concrete driveways are a popular choice for homeowners due to their durability, low maintenance, and attractive appearance.

Concrete for a driveway or pathway needs to be durable and hard wearing, and we have the right mix for the job.

Based on your application information we can recommend a ready-mixed concrete that, when correctly specified and placed, will resist freeze or thaw damage in Winter and offer an excellent final finish, whilst meeting the relevant British and EU quality standards.

To enhance this mix we also suggest the addition of fibers, which provide a longer lasting concrete, minimize the need for crack control with wire mesh and provide improved resistance against impact and abrasion.

Benefits of a Concrete Driveway:

Durability - Concrete driveways are strong and durable, able to withstand heavy vehicles and foot traffic without cracking or breaking.


Low Maintenance - Unlike other types of driveways, concrete driveways require minimal maintenance. Simply cleaning it periodically with soap and water will keep it looking new for years.


Aesthetic Appeal - Concrete driveways can be customised with various finishes, colours, and patterns to suit your personal style and home's architecture. See our blog on imprinted concrete driveways.


Cost-Effective - a concrete driveway is an affordable option when compared to other materials like paving or asphalt.


Tips for installing and maintaining concrete driveways

  1. Choose the right contractor: The quality of your concrete driveway installation depends largely on the expertise of the contractor you choose. Be sure to select a reputable contractor with experience in driveway installation and maintenance.
  2. Proper preparation: Before pouring the concrete, the area must be prepared properly. The site must be graded, levelled, and free of debris to ensure proper drainage and avoid cracks in the future. You can use our concrete calculator tool as a guide to how much concrete you will need.
  3. Reinforcement: To prevent cracks, your concrete driveway should be reinforced with steel mesh or rebar.
  4. Sealant: Applying a sealant to your concrete driveway can help protect it from damage caused by weather, chemicals, and UV rays. Sealants also help maintain the colour and appearance of the concrete.
  5. Regular cleaning: Regular cleaning of your concrete driveway will help maintain its appearance and prevent the build-up of debris, oil stains, and other contaminants.
  6. Prompt repairs: If you notice any cracks or damage to your concrete driveway, it's important to have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage.

Concrete driveways are an excellent choice for homeowners due to their durability, low maintenance, and aesthetic appeal. A correctly installed and maintained concrete driveway will provide you with a beautiful and long-lasting addition to your home.
