Gary was prompt in responding to my initial job request and from the moment he came to look at the job it was clear he was an expert in his field. I had an idea of the look I was going for and Gary was able to provide excellent samples and alternatives. His price was excellent and so it was with confidence we chose Ace Driveways. We are absolutely delighted with our new driveway and patio! From the materials used, the team and the excellent workmanship everything was just as we wished. Thank you so much!

Good value for resurfacing drive but drain had to be repaired which was a bit pricey.

I used this company to replace a concrete driveway with block paving. I'm very impressed with the quality of their work. The driveway was laid quickly but to a high standard. Gary turned up to do the quote on time and showed pictures of their previous work. He provided a competitive price there and then. Gary and his son were incredibly neat and tidy. They were polite and nothing was too much hassle. Nice to find a reliable company that provides great service. I've already recommended them to other people.

When reviewing the various quotes, my wife felt that Gary Nelson Smith of Ace Driveways gave an honest assessment of the challenges, providing advice which was helpful in our decision-making. He also provided a realistic quote. He was punctual, polite and efficient. The drive is a huge improvement on what was there before; he incorporated our redesigns without issue and set expectations throughout the process. Our neighbours are happy too as it improves the look of the road - many have asked for his card.

Gary and his team resurfaced a Tarmac driveway 160 Sqm in two days. They were personable and hard working during a period of high temperatures. The job was done efficiently and looks good.

Neil arrived on time both for the initial appointment and for the job, sent me a proper quote (the only one out of 3 tradesmen), delivered what he said he would and left the area clean afterwards. I also received an invoice for the amount quoted, so overall good experience.

I got 4 quotes for a large driveway build of about 170 square metres. Gravelling it, is much more detailed than it looks and Ace gave me the most competitive quote and refreshingly said they would not take any money up front as they wanted me to be satisfied first. A job that I had been quoted more than double for and up to 6 weeks, Gary and his son Jake, did in 5 days flat to a very high standard. I very much admired the hard work, courtesy and craftsmanship and would recommend them very highly.

Very good work done for much less than competitors. Nelson communicated well and when he was not able to make an appointment, he phoned in to say so. I would definitely use him again
