Graham CreedAsphalt Driveway With Paved Border
17 June 2021

Eddie and his team helped realise our vision of an asphalt driveway with quartz stone fleck with paved border. Thoroughly professional from start to finish, which took less than two days to complete mid June'21. Eddie takes great pride and passion in his work, which shows in the completed projected. A very amicable and articulate man, with an excellent team of workers. Excel by name, excellent by nature.

During the free visit, the designer can go through what type of driveway you would like, discuss the various colour options and design choices available and provide a breakdown of the work that will be involved in laying the new driveway.

Resurfacing a driveway in Cork is another option available from Excel which provides resurfacing choices that include tarmac, asphalt, resin bound, resin bond and tar & chip surfacing. For resurfacing with tarmac or asphalt, a bitumen bonding agent will be sprayed onto the existing surface to improve the adhesion of the new surface.

With resin or tar-chip, each has there own form of adhesion with UV resin used on resin bound / bond and hot bitumen used with tar and chip.

Along with new driveways and resurfacing, Excel Driveways provides other options to further enhance the appearance of your new driveway.

12 March 2021

I got a new patio recently and used Excel Driveways . Eddie answered his phone each and every time I rang him and always turned up if he said he was calling to the house . This in itself was fantastic as normally I would be chasing people to answer queries or get a start date . The day he was due to install it he arrived with about 7 or 8 workers and had the job done well ahead of schedule . He did a fabulous job to a very high standard and I would highly recommend using this company

I recently used Excel Driveways to install 320m2 of granite paving at two new build properties. They completed the works to an extremely high standard within the time frame given. After working with several other landscapers over the years I can honestly say I only wish I’d found them before now. I can highly recommend them for any hard landscaping projects and will continue to use on future developments.

If you are looking for a patio and driveway company that will work hard, stay on target and make you feel like they are working on their own homes, then look no further. These guys are the real deal. Started the job as promised, cleaned up after themselves each day before leaving and kept me in the loop all the way through the project. No hidden costs and kept to the dollars agreed to prior to the start. They were unable to finish by Friday only because I kept adding to the project as they were working. so they came Saturday and Sunday to finish the detail work. My new driveway and patio looks fantastic.

We found the work satisfactory, behind schedule on completion. Original estimated time was 3 days but it took longer than a week due to some problems with suppliers not delivering right products. Not really our concern and we feel they should of organised this before they started. Overall work is good though and could not fault the workers.
