Concrete @ your Fingertips


Problems with concrete driveways

The Concrete Society is a membership organisation serving the construction industry and as such we can not carry out visits to assess problems with domestic concrete driveways.

 

In the first instance if you are not satisfied with your driveway, then raise the issue with your driveway installer.  Failing that you can contact your local Trading Standards office or  Consumer Direct on 08454 04 05 06.  The Citizens Advice Bureau provides an advice sheet on dealing with disputes with builders which can be downloaded from their website.

 

Guidance on the correct design and installation of concrete driveways is give in Imprinted Concrete: Model Installation Clauses and Guidance Notes.

 

Where a report is required, generally when legal action is to be undertaken, an independent consultant should be contacted.

 

See the CONCRETE magazine article Creating the right impression with imprinted concrete, available to Society members via the members area.
