Concrete driveways are a great durable option for your driveway that doesn’t bring with it the mess or noise of a pebble driveway. A concrete driveway is the most popular amongst the residents of Pontiac due to its durability and versatility. With a concrete driveway we are able to modify it to bring in elements of color or patterns to suit the needs of your home or business. Here we explain in more detail the different ways Pontiac Concrete are able to assist you in creating a decorative driveway unique to you.
Long gone are the days where concrete has to be that dull grey color that shows up every little stain and imperfection. With the use of color you have the ability to create a driveway that suits the façade of your home and creates a more inviting look. There are a range of colors available on the market that you have the selection of. If you are unsure of what colors are available to you, our team of experts are happy to show you a few different options that may suit your needs so that you can make the right decision.
The use of concrete stamps and turn your concrete driveway from a standard looking slab with join marks into something much more appealing. There are a range of different stamps we have available that can create different looks for your driveway such as brick, cobblestone, slate, stone, tile and even wood. Our team will be sure to provide you with examples of the result of each of these so that you can make an informed decision as your driveway style is a lifelong element of many peoples homes.
Our team at Pontiac Concrete will always recommend concrete sealing for all driveways. As concrete is an absorbent material, it will quickly soak up any liquids that are dropped onto it. This can leave a nasty stain that impacts the appearance of your driveway if you have an unexpected leak in your car. Although a seal will not completely prevent the concrete from absorbing the stain, it does provide a layer of protection that will give you some time to clean it up before it absorbs. We recommend that sealing is completed on a regular basis to give your driveway the best form of protection. Even if you do manage to get stains on your driveway, we also provide washing services to help remove the stains before we apply a sealer.
Although concrete driveways are exceptionally durable, they are not invincible and do require repairs when cracking occurs. Cracking generally appears due to exposure to sun and water causing expansion and contraction of your concrete surface. Repair works are generally a simple job that can easily be completed, but we strongly recommend that you request repair works before larger cracks start to appear. That way we will be able to see if there are external elements causing cracking such as tree roots.
