Driveways Bexley – Who, What, When?
Block Paving – Many areas within Bexley including postcodes DA6, DA8 and DA17 were noticeably in need of upgrading. Many block paving installations were in older styles and not taking advantage of modern block paving designs and styles. Very few homeowners seem to have permeable block paving which is surprising considering how many drainage issues occur in some parts of the borough.
Resin Bound – This type of paving surface is growing in popularity (especially as an overlay.) Whilst many homes throughout Bexley and surrounding local areas lack contemporary styled house we expect to see demand for resin bound installations in Bexley to increase going forwards into 2018.
Please view our resin guide relevant to Bexley (note this covers surrounding local areas in DA5, DA6, DA8, DA14 and many others)
Pattern Imprinted Concrete – Without a doubt this is proving to be the most popular driveway surfacing product choice in all areas of Bexley. Ease of installation, stunning designs and a wide choice of colours are just some of the reasons for this. Care must be taken with selecting the best contractor/installer, as some installations were noticeably better than others.

Overall, block paving seems to be declining as a paving surface of choice. Many upgrades are needed as both style and colours are limited throughout Bexley. This could be due to difficulty competing with the decorative paving options of other surfaces or due to higher cost of more modern block paving alternatives. That’s not to say that some outstanding block paving installations are around in Bexley….because there are. Take a look at some of these…
Bexley is a diverse borough. As a post war suburban overspill, many of the housing styles are the same.
Driveway installations were noticeably ‘in keeping‘ with the style of homes. Due to being quite a densely populated area many driveway areas have been extended to allow more and more cars to park. Off road parking restrictions are also an issue and Bexley Council are known for their targeting of motorists.
Property prices have remained stable throughout 2017 and it’s likely that disposable income will be available for home improvements and much needed driveway upgrades. Bexley is a CASH rich area.
