Problems with Gravel Driveways

When it comes to choosing a material for your new driveway, weighing up pros and cons is essential. The more research you do, the more likely you are to make a confident decision. Every driveway material has its drawbacks, but in the case of gravel driveways the negatives seem to outweigh the positives. 

Gravel may be a low-cost option in respect of material, but over time ruts and holes can appear quickly in your driveway. consequently you may end up paying out more in the long run compared to other longer-lasting materials such as resin. 

Displacement

Displacement is a very regular problem associated with gravel driveways, with loosened stones being a regular occurrence. This is not only aesthetically displeasing but also has the potential to worsen existing health conditions. 

Gravel welcomes weeds

Gravel driveways are prone to weed growth. Weeds are a constant menace to homeowners and there really isn’t much you can do about it! As a result, regrowth is pretty much inevitable, and can severely compromise your driveway’s aesthetics.

Colour choices

Traditional colours are readily available but if you are looking for something different, then gravel most likely isn’t for you. If you want to stand out or you are seeking a specific texture or pattern you are better off looking elsewhere.

Extreme weather

Removing snow and ice from a gravel driveway is not only challenging but very time-consuming. Pieces of ice can easily become wedged in the gaps between each piece of gravel, making it uneven and slippery. A low-maintenance driveway is appealing at the best of times, yet in Winter it’s a necessity.

Resin to the rescue

Resin provides minimum maintenance, no weeds, no displacements. If you’re looking for a long-term solution that delivers on all fronts, then resin is the way forward this Winter. Give  us a call to get your resin driveway started now on 01480 220434.
