Usually, the overriding decision is governed by cost. While replacing your driveway will be more expensive than carrying out repairs, it’s worth considering why the driveway is in need of repair. Is it older than 20 years, or has it been installed incorrectly? If so, this could be the first of many repairs and these could end outweighing the replacement cost – which you will have to do further down the line anyway.
We recommend getting a thorough examination of your driveway and any drainage issues, and a price for both repair and replacement. If you are planning on selling your home, you may find that a replacement will add kerb appeal and value to your home, making it a worth investment.
