images of driveways that have been under priced or had a non reputabal company carrie out the works.

Driveways sink for a number of reasons. The first being that the area has not been dug out deep enough, sometimes the dolomite may be the incorrect type, the sand may be the incorrect type or too deep, the edges and front not kerbed or have enough concrete to hold everything in place, or finally it has not been whacked enough times or the whacker is too lightweight.
