Just a word to the wise especialy for the elderly.
There is a company going around offering to resurface /coat driveways for obvious reasons I cannot be too specific but they got my 85 year old mum yesterday and came back today wanting £500 cash.
the job they did was a joke just spraying a thin coat of some sort of bitumen onto her concrete drive they hadn,t even brushed up leaves before doing it and just sprayed over the top of them.
fortunatley my brother got involved and called trading standards who came and looked at the job and told us not to pay them as they are aware of them. they got quite agressive and said they would get their money one way or another.
they claim to be a local company though trading standards say they are not.
my mum commented on what a pleasant and plausible man it who spoke to her about it .
please be wary of anybody knocking on your door offering sevices such as this.
