What our customers say

“Very High standard of attention, materials, work ethic and the result is fantastic. This is the second driveway I have had done by Approachways and the standard is excellent once again. Asked for a few additional bits, gateposts, brickwork and this was no problem or trouble. Would recommend this type of driveway and this company to all.”

Customer in Guildford – New Driveway and pathway – 30 January 2019

“The finished result is beyond expectations. The workmanship is first class and the team assigned to me where first rate. I have a stunning driveway that looks like real cobble stones and with 3 large manholes, camouflaged so well I thought we had lost them! So many people have stopped to compliment me on the work done with one person saying I thought you were going to have a resin drive, then oh its concrete then the next day, OMG that is stunning! I have and will to continue to recommend Andy and his company as never did I think I could get so excited about a concrete driveway. Thank you.”

Customer in Hayling Island – Driveway and rap circular patios – 19 February 2018

“Absolutely delighted with our new drive and everyone comments so far have been enquiring how long it took to lay that amount of cobbles. Everyone has been so surprised when we actually tell them that it is an imprinted concrete to look like cobbles. Andy and his team were extremely hard working, knowledgeable and professional. We can’t fault the work. They arrived when they said they would, the mess was kept to a minimum and they were always polite, courteous and completely trustworthy. They have completely transformed the driveway and would highly recommend this company to anyone!”

“We would 100% recommend this company. The quality of work is to be seen. The staff were very courteous and polite. The workers were professional and kept us informed with each stage of works. Although an expensive option for a driveway, it was money well spent. Would not hesitate to recommend this company to friends and family. Excellent all round service.”

Customer in Stanmore – Imprinted concrete driveway – 1 July 2015

“The team worked well considering the awful weather, they removed over 20 tons of old uneven tarmac from my front drive and replace it with a nice grey imprinted cobbled one. The work was carried out very professionally and the end product was well worth it, so I would like to thank Andy and his team for a great job! Many thanks Mr Griffin!”

Customer in Camberley – New imprinted concrete driveway – 28 May 2012

“Andrew Given first quoted for the work in October 2010 and was incredibly patient as I finally confirmed the job in January. From the first consultation through to my never-ending questions over colour / pattern / programme of works to fit in with other building work Andrew was professional, accommodating and very knowledgeable. Pete and the team were punctual, tidy and their workmanship was of a very high standard. I am thrilled with the patio…and now look forward to having my driveway renovated too. I highly recommend Approachways.”
