Many a household will be looking at their driveway in the spring and think it has seen better days. Over time the wear and tear of heavy rain, freeze-thaw, cars rolling over it and other bumps and impacts will take its toll.
Now is certainly a good time to be looking at having the work done. Late spring is without doubt the most optimal period to carry out the work of driveway repairs or even getting a whole new driveway fitted.
Firstly, this means you will be starting after the cold of winter and the frosts of early spring have come and gone. There will be no freeze-thaw to disrupt the work and while there are remote mountainous places that can suffer unseasonal cold snaps, that’s not something any Telford driveway company can report having had to deal with!
Secondly, it also means that you are getting the work done during warm, sunny weather that ensures the new driveway is filly established well before the cold weather returns in the latter part of the year.
In addition, because the weather is warmer, everything should dry a bit faster too, making the whole process of getting the lovely new driveway in place much faster.
At the same time, delays can happen. But if you start on the project earlier in the year, this allows more times for these to be resolved, which means there is not likely to be any panic that summer is ending and the new driveway isn’t ready yet.
Also, there is a practical benefit of adding yourself to the list of jobs for your driveway contractor. It means you get ahead in the queue before the summer kicks in and things get really busy, which means you aren’t trying t get the work done at the same time as nearly everyone else.
Finally, by getting the work out of the way you may find there is plenty of time to enjoy outdoor summer activities like barbecues or sitting in the garden without any ongoing work taking place around you.
That’s why now is a great time to – pardon the pun – spring into action.
