New Driveways in Folkestone | From Builders to Kitchen & Bathroom Fitters, What Makes Our Services So Popular?

At Bentley Builders, we fulfil numerous roles. First, we operate as traditional building contractors, covering everything from new driveways and garden patios to home extensions and loft conversions. However, we also provide services as both bathroom fitters and kitchen fitters. This allows us to deliver a focused approach to refurbishing and renovating two of the most popular rooms in any Folkestone property.

When it comes to home improvement and development work, there are certain projects that hold almost universal appeal. On this page, we take a closer look at 4 of the most popular. We have split these into 2 external jobs and 2 internal projects.

Why Are Bathrooms, Kitchens, Patios and Driveways So Popular?

New Driveways

When you hire Bentley Builders to install a new driveway, your property immediately has more kerb appeal. While this is great from a purely aesthetic position, it’s also beneficial if you plan to sell your home in the near future. If this is the case, your new drive will also increase the market value of your house. There are many variables involved with the final figure, but it varies between 5% and 10%.

In areas with minimal parking available, new driveways provide invaluable off-street parking. This not only allows you to park on your doorstep, it saves time looking for a parking space elsewhere.

Driveways, like garden patios, are also versatile and customisable. Our builders have experience with a wide range of materials, from block paving to resin bound surfacing. With our various products and expertise, you can find a seamless fit with your existing home, and an installation that reflects your tastes and personality.


As bathroom fitters and kitchen fitters, Bentley Builders can transform two of the most popular rooms in your Folkestone house. Kitchens are known as ‘the heart of the home’. They play a central role in family life. As the place where you prepare your breakfast and morning coffee, it lays the foundations for your days.

Kitchens are uniquely social and practical spaces. As kitchen fitters, we combine visual appeal with a well-planned layout and the latest mod cons. This is why a kitchen completed by skilled builders holds so much appeal with homeowners and prospective buyers alike.

As with new driveways and garden patios, a new kitchen has the potential to add between 5% and 10% to an average home, although the final number can be even higher.


As bathroom fitters, we emphasise the importance that your bathroom plays in shaping your days and nights. In most cases, the bathroom is the first room you visit after waking up and the last one you go to before bed. It’s the room in which you get ready for work and nights out in Folkestone, not to mention the space in which you relax and unwind.

It stands to reason, then, the appearance, layout and features in your bathroom have a huge impact on how you feel when inside. A calming, reassuring environment will only help you to feel the same way.

In fact, the results we produce as bathroom fitters and kitchen fitters often inspire wider property refurbishments and renovations in a similar vein. This is equally true of the garden patios and new driveways our builders create as they often result in further garden landscaping work.

Call 01304 209 299, 07802 644 462 or 07803 642 918 to discuss anything from new driveways to kitchen refurbishments in Folkestone.
