Driveways are an integral part of a home. Concrete is one of the top material choices for driveways simply because it offers numerous advantages. Driveways have the highest traffic, which is why it should be made with quality and durability, with a promise of long-lasting top performance. All these things can be offered by concrete and more. Concrete also provides versatility when it comes to design options, as well as affordability.
Concrete driveways present several significant pros that every homeowner would want for their homes.
Maintenance– Keeping concrete in good condition is quite simple and easy compared to other construction materials. While concrete requires resealing every few years, daily maintenance only requires sweeping off debris to get rid of the dirt on the surface.
Cost-effective– If you think your savings come from the fact that concrete is less expensive than other materials, think again. The truth is, concrete is cost-effective because it can last for many years and requires only minimal maintenance. This means you don’t have to worry about replacing it any time soon.
Safety- One of the best characteristics of concrete is that it is naturally fire-resistant. Its surface can also withstand skidding, which adds to its safety value. Also, not many people know that concrete reflects light, which allows you to maneuver your car easily in your driveway in low light.
Environmentally-friendly– Concrete is manufactured using renewable materials that have a minimal environmental impact.
Aesthetics– Concrete is versatile when it comes to decorative options. It can be stained with pigments and stamped with patterns that resemble other high-end materials such as bricks, marbles, and stones. With concrete, you can create a design that would fit the kind of driveway you’ve always dreamed of for your house.
Proper excavation is essential for the overall quality and durability of the driveway. It is vital that we only excavate to the depth that will not compromise the quality of the soil that is already well compacted. Doing so will make your driveway susceptible to cracking and settling.

Pitch and Grade
Whether you like it or not, driveways are exposed to other elements such as rain. You have to make sure that water from other sources is directed away from your house, and this is where grading and pitch come to play. The more prevalent method is grading, where the driveway is slanted the long way. On the other hand, the pitch is essential when the driveway slopes to the house. The use of any of these methods is critical to keep water from coming into your property. Installing drains is not entirely ideal because it can be blocked and lead to flooding issues.
A transition is where your driveway meets the street or the sidewalk. The transition must be smooth to prevent accidents and potential damage to your cars. We make sure to install driveways with the highest quality to ensure your safety, as well as your car’s.
Your driveways will accumulate dirt and stains over time. You must know how to properly clean these common stains to ensure the aesthetic appeal of your concrete driveway.
Oil and Grease– You can put kitty litter for recent spills as it can absorb the oil before it can set in on the concrete. You can find a high-quality degreasing product in the market to help you deal with older stains.
Tire Skid Marks- This type of stain can usually be dealt with using power washing. However, if this method doesn’t work, you can use brake cleaners available on your auto parts store.
Rust- The most effective way to get rid of rust stains is by using oxalic acid.
Mildew- Pressure washing is the best way to deal with mildew stains.
