Security and Peace of Mind
With the number of vehicles increasing every year on our roads, and local authorities bringing in more and more parking restrictions in areas, parking space is becoming scarce and valuable. Installing a drop kerb to access your property, and constructing some off-road parking is becoming a highly sought after home improvement. As well as offering a valuable parking space, protection from damage, it also provides additional security for your vehicle, and peace of mind for you.
Installing a drop kerb needs to be carried out by an approved contractor who is registered with the local authority, and is not a DIY job. The work requires the kerb stones to be lowered, the pavement area needs to be strengthened and a ramp constructed to allow for vehicles to cross the pavement and park on the property. DJ Morford & Sons are an approved Cornwall County Council contractor and will carry out your drop kerb installation to a high and fully approved standard.
