This concrete driveway at the back of a subdivided block was built with a large concrete driveway area. Being less than 10 years old, the concrete was in relatively good condition but not very attractive, as seen from some of the before photos.
- Large concrete area
- The huge expense for concrete driveway removal – sending concrete to the landfill
- The colour matches the existing colour scheme
- Overlay, don’t Overpay!
Given the task of concrete resurfacing was far more cost-effective than the removal of the concrete driveway, our client was looking for ‘driveway Ideas’ and found StoneSet online.
There are many ‘faux stone’ solutions. The major appeal of StoneSet was the opportunity to resurface driveways rather than the cost of sending existing concrete to a landfill.
Example surfaces we have encountered in driveway resurfacing
- Tiled driveways
- Patchwork concrete
- Bitumen driveways
Can StoneSet Colour Match?
Whilst we don’t colour match the existing stone, with 30 colours of stone available and the ability to create custom blends, we can effectively create a seamless transition from any existing stone, painted surface or paving surrounds.
StoneSet’s 30+ colours of natural stone and 6 colours of recycled glass please custom home designs where homeowners get to choose their colours.
Therefore, some of the common existing stone surfaces we can effectively match include;
- Deco Granite
- Crusher dust
- Road Base
- Blue Stone
- Crushed Rock
Because StoneSet sources natural stone for porous paving, it doesn’t fade with UV exposure over time. This means your natural stone resurfaced driveway will retain its colour, unlike synthetic alternative surfaces.
Overlay Driveways: Don’t Overpay
StoneSet can be used as a way of resurface/dressing a driveway to bring it back to life, looking better than ever. When originally conceived StoneSet was designed simply for an attractive, natural surface for overlaying concrete and asphalt, where the ‘ashfelt’ and looks quite old!
By applying a 16mm thick “Overlay” of StoneSet, you are applying one of the most affordable and long-lasting driveway finishes when it comes to value for money.
