Depending on where you live, a dropped kerb can be referred to as either a footway crossing, vehicle crossover, or vehicle access. Dropping a kerb is a process that reduces the normal height of your kerb to a path/road, the kerb is then reinforced to be able to withstand the weight of a vehicle. Building a dropped kerb will save you from potentially being fined £1000, however, you may need permission to build one.
At Hascon Groundworks Contractors, we know that when it comes to tarmac, the most important thing is preparation. That is why we will take the time to assess your driveway to ensure if you need completely newly laid tarmac or simply a resurfacing. In terms of the process, tarmac is a very resilient substance, and with our extensive experience, we can lay it effortlessly while working around your schedule.
