Concrete has long been used as a durable building material for driveways. This is because of the versatility that concrete offers, as it can be shaped and integrated into any home exterior to create a stunning driveway that fits your home’s aesthetic and your personal needs.
Installing A Concrete Driveway
Installing a concrete driveway requires some planning and excavation work first, before the concrete can be adequately placed on the surface. Without these two steps, your concrete may not be as long-lasting as you would hope, nor maintain its integrity and durability as much as properly-laid concrete normally would. Excavating the area ensures that all underlying boulders and materials in the ground are removed so that the surface can be evened out and flattened for a safer installation. We will then estimate how much concrete needs to be mixed and poured before layering it into the anticipated driveway area.
Types Of Driveways
There are various types of driveway shapes and designs to choose from if you aren’t sure what kind would best suit your home or the space you have available. We can assist clients in building a custom driveway that matches the outdoor space around your home that you have available, as well as enhancing an existing one so that it’s more accessible for your vehicles. Some of the most common types of driveways that we’ve helped clients create and install include L-shaped driveways, straight driveways, circular, and even semi-circular. The type you choose will also depend on the space you have available and at what angle the driveway will connect to your home’s exterior, your garage, and your landscape.
Driveway repairs are available to tackle some of those pesky cracks and holes that can eventually occur in worn concrete. To fill the cracks in your concrete, we’ll have to use a crack filling solution that seals the concrete together and prevents the crack from spreading or worsening. Holes can be repaired in the same vein to avoid uneven surfaces, splintering, crumbling, or further cracking. Our driveway repairs are intended to prolong the lifespan of your concrete, while also saving you money on replacing the concrete altogether. Since installing new driveway concrete can be quite expensive, we make our repairs affordable to match your budget.
Driveway extensions are another professional concrete service that we’re proud to offer. Extending your driveway means making use of untouched outdoor space that you have surrounding your home or existing driveway, so that cars can accessible the driveway better and easier. We can build driveway extensions to accommodate one or more cars, as well as extend the concreted space around the side of your home so that you have more pavement to store outdoor items, such as building supplies or even your garbage bins. Driveway extensions are then blended into the existing driveway and smoothed out to avoid gaps in the two sections of concrete, providing an even transition from your existing driveway to your new extension.
