Do I Need To Be At Home When My Driveway Is Being Worked On?

do I need to be at home when my driveway is being worked on

The number of cars on UK roads is rapidly rising, with a growth of 1.6 million cars on the roads between 2011 and 2016 alone. To accommodate these extra vehicles, UK roads need extra care, but solutions closer to home have to be sought as well. 

If you own one or multiple cars, then the problem of where to park them is something that you would likely have come across. Street parking is not ideal, and it also raises some safety concerns, especially if the area is not well lit. 

One of the best parking spots that you could have is your own modern driveway; offering an abundance of convenience and safety for your vehicle. 

During the installation process of your driveway, your entire garden will be transformed… but do you have to be there to see it?

Let’s explore the common question that may homeowners have found themselves asking: do I need to be at home when my driveway is being worked on?

The larger and steeper the driveway, the longer it will normally take to install. The reverse, a small and relatively flat driveway, may be much quicker

How Long Does It Take to Install a Driveway?

The time it takes for a driveway to be installed with vary, and you’ll likely find that even if you choose the same company and driveway materials as your next-door neighbour, there will still be some variations in timeframe. 

A number of factors can influence the time it takes to install a driveway, including:

•    The choice of materials

•    The installers that you use

•    The weather and temperature

•    The existing surface of your drive way or garden

•    The extent of work that needs doing

•    The amount of waste material that may need removing

•    The size of your driveway

•    The design of your drive way

•    The gradient of your drive way

The larger and steeper the driveway, the longer it will normally take to install. The reverse, a small and relatively flat drive way, may be much quicker. 

For resin bound driveway installation, you can commonly expect the installation to take approximately 48 hours, which is pretty quick for the quality of the end result!  While this speed may be quick for the installation, but you’re certainly not going to want to have to be out of the house for two days in a row…

Whether you leave for the day or stick around, the choice is yours, but always, it’s essential to make sure that you trust the installers if you’re leaving them to work on your home alone

Do I need to be at home when my driveway is being worked on?

Driveway installation is a very contained home improvement, the work will be performed on the designated areas, and the rest of your home will be left alone. Due to this, there is no reason why you have to leave for while the driveway is being worked on. 

The noise levels will likely increase during installation, but other than a little disruption for a couple of days, you’ll be free to enjoy yourself as your driveway is being worked on. If you stick around, you’ll also be able to see the transformation as it happens!

See the Transformation First Hand!

When a resin bound driveway is laid, the different stages involved make it a very exciting project to watch – before your eyes, your driveway will be completely transformed. 

You’ll be able to see the ground prepared, the subbase getting laid, and the additional layers of a substrate and wearing course installed, before the resin and aggregate mix is even added. 

When it’s time to lay the stones and resin, you can watch your chosen style of resin mix being applied to the surface – a true transformation!

Whether you leave for the day or stick around, the choice is yours, but always, it’s essential to make sure that you trust the installers if you’re leaving them to work on your home alone.
