Most homeowners are looking for driveways and patios which will last, look good, be easy to lay and be affordable. If these factors are important to you in the search for a suitable surface, pattern imprinted concrete provides the perfect solution. Our company, Superior Driveways, lays pattern imprinted patios and driveways in Preston, Stockport, Wigan and all surrounding locations in Greater Manchester and the North West of England.
Imprinted concrete has grown in popularity as a hardwearing yet attractive surface for driveway, pathways and patios. Durability and aesthetic appeal ensure pattern imprinted patios and driveways still look great many years after the initial installation. The use of prescription ready-mix concrete ensures the surface won’t break down over time.
Pattern imprinted concrete is a modern material, with roots in the United States, which we used to create driveways in Manchester and the surrounding Preston, Stockport and Wigan areas. Prescription ready-mix concrete, once poured and levelled, is imprinted with a pattern to create a bespoke finish. Brick, stone, slate, cobble and timber effects can be used on pattern imprinted patios and driveways based on your personal design preferences.
Good for the Environment
In addition to having superb aesthetic qualities, pattern imprinted concrete is the ethical choice for patios and driveways because it is eco-friendly and doesn’t cause harm to the environment. Sand, cement, mixed aggregates and water are combined with your preferred choice of colour, which will often be selected to match the brickwork of your home.
As far as our customers in Greater Manchester are concerned, imprinted concrete ticks every box when it comes to appearance, style, functionality, durability and care for the planet. It is hardwearing, resistant to frost, easy to care for and provides a bespoke finish.
With a wealth of patterns, colours and finishes to choose from, pattern imprinted patios and driveways boost kerb appeal and create the perfect impression on visitors.
Versatile and Cost-Effective
While pattern imprinted concrete is most commonly used to create driveways, patios and walkways, it is versatile enough to be used inside the homes of our Manchester, Preston, Stockport and Wigan customers. As an internal flooring choice, imprinted concrete is perfect for use over underfloor heating channels or as a stylish flooring choice for kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories thanks to its excellent waterproofing qualities.
Superior Driveways have recently added the PICS Bond Natural Stone overlay system to our product range, which is used to enhance existing driveways and patios. The system sees a natural stone aggregate used to dress and cover driveways, car parks, pathways and entrance roads. It has a large number of domestic, commercial and industrial applications.
The PICS Bond Natural Stone overlay system can be used to incorporate house numbers, house names, company logos and much more. Yet it still produces a durable, hardwearing surface which is incredibly popular with customers in the Greater Manchester area. This is reflected in the glowing testimonials we receive from those who choose our services.
Speed of Installation
Whether you’re based in Bury, Preston, Stockport, Wigan or anywhere else in the surrounding Manchester area, we’ll give you unprecedented choice when it comes to colours and finishes. Pattern imprinted patios and driveways are laid and left to cure for up to 48 hours. Superior driveways return to clean driveways, integrate expansion joints and power-wash the surface. The joints prevent hairline cracks during changes in climate.
After a week at the very most, we’ll come out once more to inspect your pattern imprinted concrete surface and coat it with a top-quality acrylic sealant. Structural guarantees of 10 years are provided on our driveways and patios. From start to finish, the installation of an imprinted concrete surface will take between 7 to 10 days in total.
If you’ve been considering pattern imprinted patios or driveways, please contact Darren Skillen and the Superior Driveways team today. We ready and waiting to take your call.
