4 Advantages Of Having A Basalt Driveway
Choosing the right surface for your driveway is a big decision because it will impact your property for years to come. The best types of surface are durable and attractive, making basalt a good choice. Basalt is a igneous rock that makes up the Earth’s oceanic crust. It has a natural, dark look that makes it stand out. It’s an ideal material for your driveway and we’ve put together a list of four advantages to have a basalt driveway.

High durability

Basalt forms oceanic plates, making it one of the densest materials in the world. This means it has a high degree of durability and won’t break down easily. Your basalt driveway will be resistant to weather conditions and is unlikely to be scuffed by people walking over it on a regular basis.

An attractive surface

Basalt is a naturally occurring material with a black and gray colour palette. Basalt provides a glossy and smooth appearance. The dark tinge will add a hint of sophistication to your property. There’s a uniqueness to basalt that sets it apart from more common materials like concrete and asphalt. The attractiveness of basalt could possibly bring added value to a house if you planned to sell it one day.

UV resistant

Basalt is formed under high pressure and heat. This means a basalt surface is highly resistant against UV light. During a hot summer, your basalt driveway won’t show any sun damage. In addition to being sun resistant, basalt is resistant to acids and strong alkali liquids.

Low maintenance

The long-lasting nature of basalt makes it a low maintenance driveway material. A power wash is enough to keep it clean. Surface irritants like dirt and snow can be removed with ease because of the durability of basalt. At Premiere Surfacing, we offer a range of driveway materials.
