Disabled Access

Those who suffer from limited or reduced mobility issues are associated with a special set of needs; particularly in reference to accessing portions of the property.

While we often focus upon the interior of the home, the fact of the matter is that bespoke driveway modifications are just as important to address. What options are provided by Meadow Drives and Patios?

Choosing the Right Type of Surface

Certain materials such as aggregate and gravel are extremely difficult to negotiate by those with limited mobility. This is why the best options are often concrete or block paving. Not only are these highly durable materials, but they can also represent an attractive addition to the property. We will explain the qualities of each in greater detail during an initial consultation.

Gradients and Sloped Access Points

It is important that the gradient of the driveway is considered, as steep slopes are hazardous from a mobility standpoint. In the same respect, we will address other issues such as a sloped access point; ideally suited for those who rely upon walkers and wheelchairs. These all represent made-to-order solutions and their ultimate design will revolve around your requirements.
Ensuring the safety and comfort of those with limited mobility concerns is an issue that we take very seriously. When nothing less than the best will do, please contact Meadow Drives and Patios Ltd. We will then explain the procedures and options mentioned above in greater detail.

We are all aware that the United Kingdom receives its fair share of rain. Unfortunately, this will often lead to drainage issues and it is not uncommon for driveways to suffer damage as a result. This is why procuring and implementing the proper drainage solutions is critical if you hope to extend the lifespan of this functional area. Let’s take a quick look at how the specialists at Meadow Drives and Patios can be of assistance.

Drains and Channels

There are several techniques which can be employed to eliminate instances of standing water. For instance, a trench drain is often installed where the driveway meets a garage. It is also possible to create run-off channels on either side, as these will help to disperse large quantities of water during periods of heavy rain.

Drains and Channels

Our technicians will take into account the slope and the gradient of the driveway itself. In the same respect, we will make certain that there are no uneven surfaces that allow water to pool. Of course, the existing landscaping of your property will also be addressed.

Different Types of Materials

There are specific materials which are more porous; helping water to quickly drain. Two common examples include resin-bonded aggregate and gravel. As opposed to water remaining on the surface, it will instead percolate and be dispersed below. Please note that there can be instances when we will apply a professional sealant to offer an additional layer of protection as well as to aid in efficient drainage.
