If you don’t already have one, there are many reasons to consider fitting a driveway for your home. Even if space in front of your property is limited, the advantages of small driveways can seriously outweigh the disadvantages.

In this blog, we’ve outlined just a few of the main reasons to consider a driveway for your Somerset home


On-road parking can be inconvenient at best, and dangerous at worst. Particularly if you have small children, or live on a busy road, getting in and out of your car during peak times can be a challenge. With a driveway – even a small driveway- you avoid this danger altogether.

Not only this, but your car is less likely to be damaged by other vehicles when stationary on a driveway. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is your parking!

Lower Car Insurance Premiums

You may have noticed when filling in your information to take out your vehicle insurance that insurers often ask where your car is kept during the day and overnight. This is because it’s much safer for cars to be kept on driveways as opposed to on the road, or in public car parks, and vehicles are less likely to require insurance claims when parked on driveways. For this reason, if you decide to fit a driveway in Somerset, you may end up paying less for your premium.


Your home should reflect who you are. With a driveway that suits your style and the feel of your home, you can make a real statement. Whether you go for a resin, granite, or block paving driveway, there’s an option for every style.

Take a look at our blog post to find out what types of driveways are available, and which is best for your home.

Ease of Access

Similarly to above, having your own designated parking space means no more long walks to find your car on a public road on those early mornings ahead of a long day. It removes the stress of having to find a parking space and fighting with neighbours about whose space is whose.

Having even a small driveway also makes everyday tasks that much easier. From taking in shopping to fitting car seats and even cleaning your vehicle, there’s no end to the convenience.

Adds Value

One of the major considerations to fitting a driveway in Somerset is the boost it can have to your property’s value.

With most UK households in ownership of one or more cars, it’s no secret that having a driveway is a hot commodity when buyers are searching for their dream home. If you decide to sell your home later on, you’re likely to have a higher valuation and subsequent sale price if you have one fitted – including small driveways.
