Service: Dig out lawn, install quality concrete driveway for use by two cars using steel mesh reinforcement.
Customer feedback for this project:
"I would like to recommend Andrew and his son Remy for their help and advice and ultimately their great workmanship on the double driveway they installed on my rental property. They were always cheerful, friendly and courteous to me and my tenants while on site. Also it was very reassuring for me to find them always punctual and always working extremely hard whilst they were on site (even through some awful weather) . I especially like their work ethic to provide an honest job and to complete all works to a standard above their competitors and I must admit they have achieved this with flying colours!
I would not hesitate to recommend your Andrew and Remy of Hallmark Driveways to anyone seeking a professional job at a very reasonable price.

Mr and Mrs Allen, Torquay
Service: Concrete driveway for two cars - requiring retaining walls, steps to lower level, ramp for wheelchair access and concrete top with metal reinforcement.
"We contacted Hallmark driveways after seeing the work they had carried out on three different properties close to our home.
Due to the shape of our site, the provision of two raised parking spaces and tiered steps was not the most straight forward of driveway jobs but Andrew & Remy were un-phased by these complications. After their initial site visit we were happy with the suggested solutions and decide to proceed. Being a tradesman myself I was impressed by the care and thought given to every step of the construction process, I saw no short cuts being taken and can honestly say that quality prevailed throughout. We received many comments form neighbours about what a good job they were doing and we are really pleased with the look and standard of the finish. Our site was cleared promptly and time was taken to repair any edges of existing construction materials where they had been impacted by the ground works for the new. All in all very impressed, we found everyone at Hallmark to be very courteous and professional at all times.

"We were recommended to Andrew's company by a relative of ours who was very pleased with the quality of work achieved for them by Hallmark Driveways. We contacted Andrew who promptly visited us and gave us a competitive quote. His team were extremely efficient in removing the old tarmac surface, preparing and then laying our new drive. We would like to put on record our thanks to Hallmark for achieving a very professional job."

"The dictionary term for Hallmark is 'a mark of excellence'. This is a fitting name for Andrew Hutchinson's company. Hallmark's work to widen and curve my driveway was undertaken promptly and efficiently from first meeting Andrew and Remy, to written quotation with detailed plans, to delivery of materials, to completion by thorough, efficient and friendly workmen.
Their attention to detail was amazing and the standard of work unquestonable. So many people have commented on my new driveway, and have taken Hallmark's telephone numbers.
These days finding a company that will 'deliver the goods' exactly as you request and that you can trust is not easy. Hallmark definately stands on it's name and I would thoroughly recommend them to anyone."
The customers were a real pleasure to work for. They had a very hard time finding the right company to carry out the work for them but were really relieved to have found Hallmark Driveways. They also expressed that our pricing was incredibly good!
Mr C, Cecil Avenue, Paignton
Service: Tarmac Strip at side of Driveway
"To whom it may concern about: Hallmark Driveways
In April 2012, we asked Hallmark Driveways to repair our drive. We needed to remove a flower bed to give a clearer entrance to our garage. Hallmark surveyed this request and gave a quote that suited us.
Within a week they were able to come and excavate the flower bed, lay a suitable hardcore base, and trim the edge of the driveway for the new tarmac surface. The next day they laid two layers of tarmac, with compaction to make very hard standing for our car.
All the work was done quickly and neatly, with no mess; every surface was swept and left clean and tidy.
I have no hesitation in recommending their work, and would willingly use their services again.

Service: Completely dig out and replace old tarmac driveway. This involved digging up the old one, widening with edging strips, installing new hardcore, laying a base coat of tarmac, followed by a top wearing course of tarmac at 40mm depth to ensure a smooth surface and a long life.
"Dear Andrew, We are writing to express our thanks and sincere appreciation for the work carried at our address. The tarmac drive you installed is entirely to our liking and looks excellent. We were particularly appreciative of the paperwork you supplied prior to starting work explaining exactly what was to be done and the fact that you supplied names and addresses of previous clients where we could inspect your work if we so wished. The work was carried out in a speedy and professional manner and the men doing the work were polite and helpful at all times. We would have no hesitation in recommending you do anyone at any time and indeed as you know we have already done so on one occasion. Thanks again for an excellent job well done. Yours sincerely K and M H"

Service: Tarmac Overlay onto existing Concrete Driveway
"We were the owners of a wretched, weed-infested drive, cratered like the surface of the moon, only with water. Now it is a pristine, polished sleekness that is the envy of the street. In fact when our neighbours invited us over for coffee yesterday, they adressed us with these words:"Are you the proud owners of the posh drive?" Hallmark (well they deserve that title) Driveways were the authors of this dramatic transformation which they accomplished efficiently, smoothly and carefully with the minimum of fuss. Needless to say we are delighted with the work and heartily recommend this first-rate firm!"

Mr and Mrs L, Nut Bush Lane, Torquay
Service: Block Pave Driveway
"We had our driveway paved in 2002 by Hallmark Driveways. We have been very pleased with the result. When we were looking to have ours done we noticed a lot of other people's drives had sunken areas that had developed over the years. Well, our drive has been layed now for 9 years and there has been no sinking or movement since the day it was layed. We would not hesitate in recommending Hallmark to do your drive or any work they undertake for you. The quality of the work is second to none."
