Driveway Installation Choices in Dublin

When it comes to replacing your old driveway in Dublin, the first task you face is what type of driveway would you like to have installed.

The main driveway choices are block paving with Kilsaran or Tobermore, gravel driveways with the stone sourced from local quarries or tarmac driveways.

The most popular option would be a tarmac driveway, and the most affordable option for a driveway is the gravel driveway choice.

You could opt for a block paving driveway, but these come with the highest cost and can take longer than other driveways to complete.

After deciding on what kind of driveway you wish to have installed, it's now time to start looking at the costs involved in installing block paving or gravel driveways.

What is the cost of block paving?

When considering block paving, the first thing that people think about block paving is the price tag attached to this type of driveway; however, block paving is one of the lowest-priced products that you can install due to its simplistic design. The cost factor will depend on how many blocks there are per square metre.

The average block paving size is 100mm x 200mm x 50-60mm, and the cost of block paving will depend on how many blocks there are per square metre.

For example, 1 sqm requires 50 blocks with an average pack of blocks (50mm range) containing 480. This means an average paving pack from Kilsaran using the Slane range will cover 9.6 m2. An Average 50m2 driveway would require 6 packs since you have to allow for cuts and wastage during an installation.

Block paved driveways are expensive compared to tarmac or gravel. Still, they do last twenty to thirty years if installed properly, so it may be worth spending more initially if you want peace of mind knowing you'll have to replace your driveway again soon as opposed to block paving which can last up to three decades where other types such as tarmac could only last around.

What is the cost of tarmac?

The cost of getting a tarmac driveway laid falls in between a gravel driveway and a block paved driveway.

It certainly is more durable than a gravel driveway and will provide you with less maintenance than a block paved driveway as well.

The cost of a tarmac driveway can increase with the option of brick bordering or apron styles on the driveway.

The common type of bordering for a tarmac driveway is brick paving, adding on average €500 - €800 for a standard-sized driveway. The more expensive option for tarmac bordering is the granite cobble sets, increasing the cost between €1200 and €2000 depending on the style chosen and any retained edges to match it.

What is the cost of gravel?

Gravel is cheaper than block paving due to its lower product cost and is the easiest installation process since it is less labour intensive.

Available in a wide range of natural stone colours, an average gravel driveway would cost around €2000 - €2500 in Dublin. Depending on the bordering style, paved aprons and other features such as pathways that Select Paving can add to a gravel driveway, the price can increase significantly.

Jim was friendly and polite at all times. They did everything they could to make sure that I was happy with the job. The team cleaned up after themselves every evening. I originally had my patio done and during the patio work, i decided to have my driveway replaced as I was very happy with the quality of the work.
