Gravel Driveway vs. Other Options

Gravel driveways are a cost-effective choice, offering a natural and rustic aesthetic. They excel in drainage and are relatively easy to install. However, they may require more maintenance and might not provide the smoothest surface for vehicles.

Tarmac driveways are durable, smooth, and require low maintenance. Concrete driveways offer exceptional longevity and a clean appearance but tend to be more expensive. Paving driveways are highly customisable but require more maintenance and come at a higher cost. The choice between these options depends on factors like your budget, maintenance capability, and the desired look for your property. Kane Construction can help you navigate these options to ensure your driveway complements your specific needs and expectations.

Gravel Driveway Installation

Gravel driveway installation is a crucial part of achieving a durable and functional driveway for your property. If a Gravel Driveway installation is done wrong it can lead to weed growth and unstable ground. We make sure to do it right by following the following steps. First we remove the existing base and create a sub base, if required we lay an edging of choice to box the gravel in. We lay a weed membrane and lay the gravel of choice on top making sure it’s even.

Our experts take into account factors like drainage, the quality of materials, and your specific preferences.

Kane Construction Services undertook a driveway project and some fencing for us. We were thoroughly impressed with Tom & his team from start to finish. The team were really polite and kept us informed each day of what works were going to be complete and the project came in on time and on budget. We are going to get the team back to complete our patio and gardens works next year. Would highly recommend.
