Most frequent questions and answers to customers on driveways.
The average cost of a driveway in Wicklow ranges from €1400 to €3600. This is the average price for a standard driveway on a 3 bed house with the various prices down to the choice between gravel, block paving or tarmac.
When it comes to building a new driveway in Wicklow, the most common options are block paving (various options), concrete driveway including imprinted concrete, tarmac/asphalt driveway and gravel driveways. These are the most common options to date with resin bonded solutions becoming more and more popular.
Driveway installation time frames can vary to a large depending on the installation choice and the actual size of the driveway area. The best example is a standard driveway for 2 cars will take 2 days from start to finish with a tarmac driveway and a block paved border. That same driveway will take 3 to 4 days if you opt for a resin bonded or imprinted concrete driveway. The reason for the extra time is down to ensuring that the building base of the driveway has cured to allow the finishing surface to be applied.
The cheapest option for a driveway is between a basic concrete driveway or a gravel driveway. The more expensive options are block paving and tarmac with resin bound being the most expensive option.
Of course there is extra options to each installation which can inflate the price. For example, using a stone edging around the gravel driveway or getting a patterned concrete finish on the driveway will increase the price slightly.
