Concrete Driveway Installations
Concrete is a popular material for driveways, and for all the right reasons. Concrete drive slabs are very strong indeed with excellent durability qualities, and need minimal maintenance requirements once they have been laid. Professional concrete installation is a cost-effective way of covering large areas that can be utilised for home vehicle parking, patios, paths and anywhere that needs a bullet proof hard surface.
Concrete can work out more expensive than say gravel and tarmac, but a cheaper option than standard block paving and resin bound driveway surfaces.
Although it's an option for a DIY enthusiast to complete a concrete driveway themselves, it can be time consuming and very difficult work if you have not done before. A lot of the hard work beforehand can be in the preparation process, especially if the old driveway needs to be excavated and removed first, Then there is the shuttering framework and expansion joints to be constructed before the concrete is even pumped in or laid.

Many people think that a well-maintained driveway is virtually maintenance free, but if you want it to last as long as possible and look great year round there are some things that need attention. A good scrubbing with a stiff yard brush and hose pipe can usually handle most of your cleaning needs, while a quality concrete sealer will add protection against dirt particles. In addition to making sure everything stays clean throughout the years of ownership! Apply this periodically at least once per year so the winter salts do not impregnate into the concrete structure and cause problems through freeze and thaw cycles. Yes a simple periodic maintenance program will pay dividends in the protection of your concrete driveway.
