A New Driveway in Stockport recently installed
Planet Surfacing has recently installed a new driveway in Stockport. Our client who was in the Heald Green area of Stockport opted for a pattern imprinted concrete driveway printed in Ashlar Slate.
A firm favourite with many, AshlarSlate is a popular option because this pattern is timeless and never dates. It is also a perfect fit for any type of house as it compliments both modern and traditional styles. The original Ashlar slate dates as far back as the 12th century and can be found in most western architecture. In the 21st Century pattern imprinted concrete in Ashlar slate is a great option to use for pathways and patios as well as in this case, driveways. With Ashlar slate this pattern is stamped into various medium sized stones which are appropriate for most driveways.
There’s also a wide range of colours to choose from, giving you lots of options, so there’s something to suit every taste. The colours can be specially formulated for use in the process. In this instance, our client chose Ashlar Slate coloured in platinum with an acid edge border. This additional feature of the driveway creates a clear definition between the edge of the driveway and the borders and is a lovely decorative effect. An acid etch stain chemically reacts with the concrete so you won’t need to reapply the finish again years later.
Stamped concrete needs to be sealed so the final part of the process during the installation of this driveway was to apply a sealant. There are a range of acrylic sealers that are available in different sheens from matt and mid sheen as well as high gloss. Our client chose a mid-sheen seal. A decorative seal ensure that the concrete is UV resistant, water resistant and durable. It also locks in the colour of the concrete. You can see the stunning results from the photographs included.
