Determine the Size of Your Driveway
The first thing you’ll need to figure out is the size of your extended driveway. You may be thinking “I want as much as I can get!” but that’s not always the best choice. To determine how big your driveway will be, you have to take in the following considerations:
-Which side of the house is your driveway on
-What type of parking do you want to have available for guests and family members that come over
-How much room are you willing to give up in your yard or garden area for a new extension project
Choosing the Best Material for Your Extended Driveway
Choosing the best material for your driveway can be tough. Should you go with asphalt? What about concrete? How should I choose which one is right for me?
Well, there are a few factors to consider before deciding on what type of driveway material would work best in your situation.
It is important to consider the finish you want for your driveway. Some people prefer a shiny, wet look while others want a rougher appearance that is less slippery when it rains or snows.
You also need to consider the climate you live in and how much rainfall there typically is where you are building your new driveway.
Get Estimates From a Few Contractors For The Work and Materials Needed
Once you have a good idea of how you want your driveway to be extended, the next step is to get estimates from a few contractors for work and materials needed.
The contractor will give you an estimate of how much time it takes, what type of materials they would use, as well as the total cost upfront.
Take into Consideration Existing Driveway Features
With a project like a driveway extension, you need to be sure not to disrupt any existing features such as brickwork and drainage.
If your house has a garage, the new section of drive needs enough room for cars so they can park directly in front when they’re not driving them or inside if it’s raining outside!
