Tarmac driveway in Shirley

Tarmac Driveway in Shirley, Birmingham


We have just completed this stunning tarmac driveway in Shirley, Birmingham for Mr Smart. Mr Smart had the driveway done back in the late 1980’s when he moved in and unfortunately fell prey to Rogue traders.

The new driveway is a tarmac driveway with a block border and a block feature at the front. We have also laid a natural stone area under the porch canopy. The use of three different driveway materials and the different colours creates a stunning finish.

We asked Mr Smart for his thoughts on us here at Ideal Building and Landscapes.

A friend of my sister had landscaping completed by your company and was impressed. Also you had recently carried out a driveway at a house around the corner which I thought looked very good.

I instructed three quotes including yours and your quote fell in the middle but I liked Sam and having seen your work filled me with confidence and so I gave you the job.

I moved into this property in 1986 and originally there was a stone area under the porch. I engaged a company to do the drive shortly after moving in but unfortunately they were rogue traders. I had a very bad experience with them and they left a mound and I had water coming into the house and the garage. They told me that it would be better to block under the porch but it was never very successful and the area was always damp. When they came to lay the hardcore it had knives and forks in it and even bits of string!

I was so impressed with the guys at Ideal Building and Landscapes and could see from start to finish that the job was being done properly.

I have been very pleased with the finished result and I would recommend Ideal Building and Landscapes.

Tarmac is the most popular material for driveways. It is renowned for strength and durability. This is why it is used in the construction of car parks and road surfacing. Creating a block paving border adds the WOW factor and kerb appeal as it provides a great contrast and a strong edge. The block paving edge prevents the tarmac from deteriorating over time where the edges are prone to weather damage. The benefit of Tarmac is that once finished it requires very little looking after or cleaning.
