Frequently Asked Questions

Why Concrete Driveways?

Concrete driveways are built with materials that have withstood the test of time, which, included with reinforcing materials such as wire mesh and rebar offer legendary strength, durability, and beauty. Don't let the initial cost of concrete scare you off. It is a proven fact that over it's lifetime concrete saves you money! Not only does concrete last longer, but it also adds value to your property compared to asphalt. With environmental concerns, dramatic asphalt price increases, and the ongoing questions of supply, it is fairly easy to see that concrete driveways are the only way to go. When the topic of maintenance is discussed, concrete is by far the superior choice. Asphalt driveways must be resealed every 3-5 years, and an initial seal being done 6-9 months after driveway is installed! That's money out of your pocket! Hot summer weather is also a major disadvantage for asphalt driveways. Asphalt driveways actually get soft in hot weather, which can result in "rutting" from vehicle traffic. Asphalt is also easily penetrated by bicycle/motorcycle kickstands, and trailer jacks. With concrete driveways, you also have unlimited design possibilities. Color, texture, shape, and even an exposed aggregate finish are just a few of the many options you can have with concrete! Concrete: Affordable, Low Maintenance, Long Lasting, Environmentally Friendly.
