Concrete driveways are usually the best option that most people choose when they plan to even have a driveway. Concrete is a more solid material than asphalt and that is why people choose concrete over asphalt many times when they are having their driveway made. Concrete Driveway repair consists in repairing the cracks on the old driveway, replacing the old concrete driveway, resurfacing the concrete driveway, designing the concrete driveway.
Repairing the Cracks
As solid as concrete might be, during harsh weather the erosion does its own job and therefore concrete might start to surrender and your concrete driveway might start showing up cracks. These are done by the heavyweight that the concrete driveway has carried for years and years but also the age of the driveway along with the conditions that it has been treated with. So its best to call our company to take care of these cracks as soon as possible to not need do to a replacement later. Because what happens is that you can take care of smaller cracks on your driveway surface but if you neglect them they can become overwhelming and then you’re forced to replace the whole driveway.
Replacing the Old Driveway
Depending on the age of your driveway you might be considering to replace it. If you have been using the same old concrete driveway for more than 20 years then I can surely tell you that time has come to replace the old one and build a new driveway. What happens is that the materials of the old driveway have to be removed first and the land has to be cleared for the work to start for the new driveway that’s going to replace the old one.
Resurfacing the Driveway
Concrete driveways are really different from asphalt driveways because they are more solid and concrete doesn’t melt like asphalt. Once it’s dry, it stays in its place and it does a fantastic job when it comes to driveways. But with the passage of time even the solid concrete can develop cracks or surface incoherency and that is when you need resurfacing. Sometimes the resurfacing of the driveway it's done by pouring wet concrete on top of the dry one and trying to level the driveway on all sides. Other times you have to remove some unleveled parts of the old driveway and rebuild them from scratch with wet concrete.
Designing the Concrete Driveway
When you work with concrete you have to have the eye on artist as far as designing is concerned. Because once concrete is dry, then you cannot do anything about it if you have made a mistake. So what you want to do is to make sure you have every measurement and calculation right before you start pouring that wet concrete. The options are limitless about designing with concrete because you as a customer might want to do decorations or editings to the driveway better adapt your property.
