Old Driveway Removal

Many people ask us to remove old driveways because we’re really good at it. We have all the tools and skills needed to break and clear away concrete driveways. Our way of doing things involves taking the old concrete to a recycling center. There, it can be used again as a base for new concrete projects. Choosing our services means you save money and don’t have to hire another contractor just for demolition. It’s a smart and money-saving choice for your project.

The Driveway Design

We start by making sure we know how the driveway should look. Using hoses, wood, and spray paint, we show the owner what the new design will be like. This is an important step, especially if there are going to be changes to the driveway. Once the owner likes the design and approves it, we move on to the next step, which is forming the driveway.

Forming The Driveway

 Precise and accurate forming is essential to create a smooth and even surface, preventing any irregularities or deformities in the final driveway. Properly formed driveways not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of the property but also contribute to its structural integrity. A well-executed forming process helps in achieving the desired slope and drainage, ensuring that water flows away from the driveway, preventing potential issues such as pooling and cracking. Additionally, a carefully formed concrete driveway sets the foundation for other finishing techniques, such as stamping or coloring, adding further customization and visual appeal. In essence, the importance of meticulous forming cannot be overstated, as it lays the groundwork for a durable, functional, and visually pleasing concrete driveway

Types Of Driveways We Build

Stamped Concrete Driveways

stamped concrete driveway

 Stamped concrete driveways are a testament to our commitment to creativity and precision. Using a variety of intricate patterns and textures, we transform ordinary concrete surfaces into unique, visually appealing features. Our skilled professionals meticulously design and imprint patterns onto the concrete during its initial pour, creating the look of natural materials such as stone, brick, or slate. Stamped concrete driveways not only elevate the aesthetic charm of your property but also offer the durability and low maintenance associated with concrete. Whether you envision a rustic cobblestone design or a more contemporary geometric pattern, our expertise in stamped concrete ensures that your driveway becomes a distinctive and lasting centerpiece for your home

Broom Finish Driveways

Broom finish driveways stand out as a widely preferred and practical choice in the world of concrete surfacing. The distinctive texture achieved through the finishing process, employing a broom, not only elevates the visual appeal but also enhances the functional aspects of driveways. This finish introduces a slightly rough surface, improving traction and minimizing the risk of slipping, especially in wet conditions. Additionally, the broom pattern contributes a subtle visual interest, preventing the concrete from appearing dull and uniform. Beyond its practical benefits, a broom finish driveway is recognized for its durability and easy maintenance, making it an ideal option for homeowners seeking a reliable and textured elegance in their outdoor spaces.

Broom Finish Concrete Is Popular

Whether you hold a deep appreciation for or harbor reservations about broom finish concrete, its enduring popularity can be ascribed to a fusion of practicality and aesthetic allure. Valued for its utilitarian advantages, the roughened surface achieved through the broom finish heightens traction, mitigating the risk of slipping, particularly in wet conditions. This renders it an outstanding selection for driveways and walkways where safety is paramount. Concurrently, the broom pattern introduces a nuanced texture, preventing the concrete from appearing excessively plain and contributing to a visually captivating and varied surface. Furthermore, the straightforward maintenance and durability associated with broom finished concrete establish it as a cost-effective and enduring solution, appealing to homeowners who seek both functionality and a hint of textured charm in their outdoor spaces.

Float Finish Driveways

The float finish or sponge finish concrete driveway boasts a textured surface that combines safety with decorative allure. This irregular finish is ideal for those seeking a more relaxed and non-linear aesthetic, departing from the uniform appearance of a broom finish driveway. Float finish driveways come at a similar cost to broom finish driveways and are frequently adorned with saw-cut details, introducing extra decorative elements. Saw cutting is also commonly employed to create borders, providing additional customization options for a personalized touch. As with all of our concrete, the driveway should be sealed with a concrete sealer.

Float Finish with A Border

A float finish driveway with a border may incur a slightly higher cost than a standard float finish driveway. Borders are available in any of our alternative finishes and can be tailored with color upon request. Depending on its size and shape, the border may be monolithic or poured separately. As with all our concrete projects, it is recommended to seal the driveway with a concrete sealer.

Acid Stain Driveways

Acid-stained driveways are appealing because they can transform ordinary concrete surfaces into unique, lively, and visually attractive features. The acid staining process includes applying a mixture of acid, water, and metallic salts to the concrete, leading to chemical reactions that create distinctive and unpredictable color variations. This technique allows for the creation of deep, earthy hues and marbled patterns resembling natural stone. The resulting appearance is not only visually impressive but also highly customizable, enabling homeowners to achieve a personalized and artistic look for their driveways. Additionally, acid-stained driveways are known for their durability, as the stain penetrates the concrete surface, offering some resistance to fading, peeling, or chipping. This combination of artistic flexibility and long-lasting resilience makes acid-stained driveways an attractive option for those seeking a distinctive and enduring aesthetic for their outdoor spaces.

Exposed Aggregate Driveways

In city settings, exposed aggregate is frequently selected as a decorative option for concrete driveways. The exposed rocks can be sealed to form an attractive surface that provides protection against damp and cold winter weather. Even though the slab has been exposed before, it requires winter upkeep. Exposed Aggregate Concrete driveways come in colored options to complement or contrast with the house’s color scheme.

Exposed Aggregate with Borders

Exposed aggregate concrete driveways have been a popular choice for many years. Borders for exposed aggregate can feature any of the concrete finishes, along with natural stone or brick mortared borders. In the case of mortared options, we create a sunken rough slab border. The combination of exposed aggregate with a border is considered one of the more expensive driveway options. Spray paint is frequently employed as it offers a clear visual depiction of border design options before they are formed.

Light Sandblast Driveways

A gentle sandblasting technique enhances the concrete surface with a subtle texture, creating a refined aesthetic that complements various architectural styles. The result is a driveway with a delicate finish that maintains a sleek and modern appearance. Light sandblasting allows for a controlled depth, showcasing only the sand in the concrete matrix, eliminating the presence of aggregate. This creates a clean and elegant surface that is both visually appealing and functional. The beauty of lightly sandblasted driveways lies in their ability to seamlessly blend into the surroundings while providing a distinct charm that elevates the overall aesthetic of any property.

Wave Broom Finish Concrete

The Wave Broom Finish style brings a unique and visually dynamic texture to concrete surfaces. Using a specialized broom a wave-like pattern is created during the finishing process, this technique produces a distinct undulating design across the concrete. The resulting finish not only adds a creative touch but also introduces a sense of movement and flow to the surface. The Wave Broom Finish style is an ideal option for individuals looking for a driveway with a more captivating and timeless aesthetic. Its textured pattern adds visual interest while preserving the practicality of a broom finish, making it an appealing choice for a variety of outdoor spaces

Creative Driveway Combinations

Concrete driveways provide the flexibility to be personalized through different combinations and designs, offering versatility in both finish and layout. Equal importance is given to the design of the driveway, ensuring a seamless union between the design and finish. The potential for color combinations is boundless, and patterns and finishes are only limited by your creative imagination. Each decorative concrete driveway we create is uniquely tailored to meet the specific requirements of our clients.

Stamped Concrete and Borders

Stamped concrete driveways with borders offer a high-end choice for concrete driveways, providing numerous possibilities and effects when combined. Integral color hardeners or topical color hardeners can be utilized to achieve diverse looks. With a range of up to eight color options, realistic natural rock and stone effects can be created. The pouring of borders, depending on the desired finish, can occur either before or after the main body of the concrete

Smooth Finish Driveways

Smooth finish driveways offer a refined and sophisticated appearance, contributing to a clean and contemporary aesthetic in outdoor spaces. Achieved through meticulous finishing techniques, the smooth surface exhibits a flat and consistent texture, elevating the overall look of residences and commercial properties. However, it’s crucial to note that the sleek finish may become slippery when wet, prompting property owners and developers to balance the driveway’s visual appeal with the need for slip-resistant features, especially in regions with frequent rainfall or adverse weather conditions. Despite this consideration, many appreciate the grace and simplicity that smooth finish driveways bring to architectural designs

Modern Driveway Styles

A modern driveway could have spaces between the slabs for grass growth or include stones and artificial turf. Also, a contemporary concrete driveway might have a smooth surface with spaced saw cuts. To enhance the current driveway finish, you can choose options like an acid wash, a light sandblast, or a gentle wash. In colder regions, this type of driveway can be a great option, especially if you’re thinking about adding heating.

Concrete Sealing

When it comes to poured concrete, driveways frequently encounter common damage. To avoid harm, ensure your driveway stays free of salt and other ice melt products. Prevent corrosive chemicals and oil leaks from your car onto the new driveway, as removing many stains may be difficult or impossible. Regularly sealing your decorative driveway is crucial to safeguard it and preserve its appealing look over the years. Our maintenance services are available to all clients, ensuring the long-lasting durability of their investment.
