Concrete has long been used as a popular building material for many driveways. Because concrete is so durable and strong, it’s great for mixing and pouring onto a driveway to support the weight of your home and your vehicles that will likely utilize the area. We assist in installing concrete driveways so that you can get the most reliable use out of your driveway, whether it be the place you park your car, you watch your kids play, or you use before connecting to your garage.
Installing concrete for your driveway is done in phases. First, it begins by leveling out the area and excavating where necessary to avoid any large boulders that could get in the way of building. If your land is not leveled before the concrete is installed, this can lead to future cracks in your concrete that can be expensive to repair and can be harmful to your vehicle or those walking on them. Once the land has been leveled, however, the concrete can then be mixed and poured into the surface area.
Pouring and Mixing
Pouring and mixing concrete is an important step in the installation process and rightfully so. Mixing your concrete improperly can lead to future damages and cracks in your concrete. This is true if your concrete has been mixed with too much water or not enough. For this reason, it is always best to have a professional mix your concrete for the right proportions. Furthermore, pouring concrete incorrectly or unevenly can result in uneven drying in certain portions and can result in future cracks as well. Concrete can also be difficult to remove from surfaces, so having a clean job done by a professional, will also save you time and stress.
After your concrete has been mixed and poured, it must then be set to dry. The drying period can take a couple of days but the concrete should be left alone for the duration of the drying period. This is to ensure proper drying and without impediment. If your concrete does not have adequate time to dry, this can result in premature deterioration and damages as you begin to use your concrete driveway more frequently.
