6 Best Materials For Your Driveway


1st April 2022

Summer is right around the corner. That means more time spent outdoors in the sun but is your driveway looking lack-lustre and in need of some TLC? We have just the solution. Here at Henson Surfacing, we provide high-quality surfaces that will fit all your project needs. Here is our list of the six best materials to add style and value to your driveway. 


1. Tarmac

The most popular choice for driveways is tarmac and for good reason: its strong and durable property allows it to be resilient to heavy vehicles and with its low cost, it is an assured crowd-pleaser.


2. Asphalt

Like tarmac, asphalt is a mixture of aggregates, filler and a binding agent which makes the surface resistant to various weather conditions and is hard-wearing which will be more beneficial and cost-effective in the long run.


3. Block-paving 

If you are more into a brick-designed surface, block-paving could be the solution. They are extremely smart looking as well as durable and here at Henson’s Surfacing, we offer them in a fantastic range of colours and patterns, making them the ideal choice of surface for constant vehicle use.


4. Gravel 

Gravel is great for that rustic style. They require minimal maintenance and are affordable without having to compromise on visual aesthetics. We offer them in a range of colours so there are plenty of choices!


5. Resin 

Their durability and resistance to cracking come down to its mixture of aggregate stones and resin, and with its U-V stable materials, you are assured it will not fade over time. 


6. Stone 

Like gravel, stone and chippings are a cost-effective way to spruce up your driveway and it comes in many assorted sizes, shapes, colours, and textures. At Henson Surfacing, our expert decorative aggregate installation team are on hand to carry out small and large projects to your very own specifications.
