First impressions last, and we always want to make sure that the first impression is a good one, right? Like so with our homes – we want the people who drop by to visit has a favorable impression of our homes. And one way to achieve that coveted impression is through beautification – that is, making our house pleasing to the eyes.

Imagine your boss visiting your humble abode for the first time. He parks his car in your driveway, opens the door, and the first thing he sees is the concrete of your driveway. Now what do you think would be his reaction? Would he be shaking his head invisibly? Shaking his head visibly? Or admiring the artistry that went to its creation?

Elite Driveways make sure your boss will be admiring your driveway – and more than make him admire, make him a tad envious too. They add beauty to your home by using their 18 years of expertise in paving concrete pattern imprinted car parks, courtyards, forecourts, paths, patios, and yes, driveways. Their reputation is literally and figuratively set solidly in concrete.

Pattern imprinted concretes can be designed to recreate an assortment of effects in ways unlimited by the imagination – you can have block-pavers, cobbles, flags, granites, slates, and so on.

Elite is constantly updating their database to know which of the colors and patterns are more popular. Some of their oft-favored patterns include Ashler slates, Grand Ashler, Herringbone slate, London cobble, and Old English cobble. Examples of favorite colors are brick red, champagne, deep red, deep tan, lawn green, mahogany, purbeck stone, steadman buff, terracotta, and Tudor brown. With creative genius and an array of different patterns and colors, special effects can be created – you can also craft individual creations.

Elite Driveways use only the highest quality materials and tried and tested construction methods – a successful combination that ensures the customers are receiving the best service and the best product. The company makes sure that their materials conform to the British standards – their concrete formulation contains fiber mesh reinforcement. Once sealed, Elite concrete becomes 25% harder than standard concrete.

Concrete had been long used for driveways and road surfaces, and it was only during the 50s that styling techniques have been developed. At first, these were merely shadows of individual pavers – later on, these pattern imprinted concretes became entities in their own right.

Pattern imprinted concretes are formed by stamping moulds and adding colors into the unformed concrete. The system amalgamates acrylic sealers, color surface hardeners, and release agents with three-dimensional texturing tools. Voila! Another unique design created. It is not surprising – what with the endless scope of design and the patent superiority – that Elite Driveways recommend pattern imprinted concrete over a simple block paving. have over 18 years experience in concrete pattern imprinted driveways , patios, courtyards, forecourts, paths and car-parks.
