Frequently Asked Questions About Driveways in Derby
Does the Weather Affect the Driveway Installation?
We carry out driveway installations all year around, to ensure we offer the best possible services to our customers. Although we offer driveway installations all year round, they may take longer during the winter months, due to varying weather conditions.
When Will You Start Work on My Driveway?
We aim to carry out and complete all driveways as efficiently as possible. Once you’ve chosen your materials and design, we will order the materials and get started as soon as they arrive. An exact time frame can be hard to give, as we depend on how quickly the materials arrive to how busy we are.
Do I Need Planning Permission for a Driveway?
Planning permission is generally not needed for driveways, however each council has their own independent regulations, so we recommend checking with them first. Regulations came into effect in 2008 to minimise the problem of flooding in particular areas, so in order to have a driveway installed your driveway needs to either be porous or have its own drainage systems to meet with regulations.
I Have an Old Concrete Driveway, Can you Tarmac Over It?
Most concrete drives are suitable for having a tarmac overlay. There are several factors which need to be taken into account such as the current state of the concrete drive. Existing drives that have cracks or are damaged might need repairing before any tarmac is laid. Get in touch with Central Paving and we’ll be happy to arrange for one of our team to come and carry out an inspection.
How Much Maintenance do Tarmac Driveways Need?
As a material tarmac has come on leaps and bounds in recent years, it is an extremely hard-wearing surface that needs little maintenance. We suggest cleaning down your tarmac driveway at least twice a year with weed killer and surface treatment, to help extend the lifespan of your tarmac drive.
Can I Customise my Tarmac?
Tarmac driveways offer a range of customisation options, at Central Paving our tarmac driveways are available in several colours. In addition to colours they can also be edged off with bricks, stones or clay tiles, to create a more decorative look.
Can I Extend my Existing Tarmac Driveway?
Yes, if you have an existing tarmac driveway and it’s in good condition, then it can easily be extended. Our driveways experts will come and carry out an inspection of your existing tarmac drive, to ensure it can extended.
