We have been prompted to write this blog post after visiting some lovely potential clients over the weekend in Leyland who were seeking some advice, information and quotations for a new driveway to be installed at their property. After seeking 2 quotes from other companies they were left a little perplexed with the scenarios as one had given a verbal price only and one had given a written price with the words ‘driveway’ and the price.
Now we understand that every company does things differently but we wanted to give an in-sight as to how we go about a driveway (and landscaping) quotation.
Your driveway is the entrance and introduction to your home and the God send when it comes to getting the kids in and out of the car safely so we understand that people want different things from their driveway.
There are so many material choices for driveways these days. We only use the best quality materials that will stand the test of time. The ones we install the most are:
- Block Paving Driveways.
- Gravel Driveways.
- Flagged Driveways.
- Permeable Block Paving Driveways.
In order to give you a free, written, no obligation quote for your driveway we come and see the area, measure up and chat to you about your requirements. We always carry a selection of material brochures and samples for you to have a look at too. Other things may need to be taken into account such as, man hole insert covers, drainage and whether you would like any features on your driveway perhaps a raised planter bed or a circle or pattern creating in the driveway?
Usually at this stage people know which material option they are going towards but if not it’s nothing to worry about. We will happily provide your free, written, no obligation quote and create you two or three quotations with the different materials. This way you can compare them and see what fits in with your budget.
Visually we can help you if you decide you would like a block paved driveway as we can take a photo of your current driveway and create you a image of what your driveway would look like block paved. We can do this in a few colours and styles so you can get a better idea of what the driveway would look like and what colour materials will be in keeping with the age and style of your home.
Once we have all the information needed your quotation will be sent to you. It will include everything from the method of works, the material choices and the total prices. We then welcome any questions, alterations on design and different ideas should you have any.
The one thing we tell our clients and potential clients is that we only use the best quality materials when doing any driveway and landscaping works in order to do you the best job possible for you.
If you would like help with driveway ideas, design or would like a quotation please don’t hesitate to Call Us 01254 830238 or 07584 576542.
