There are many good reasons why concrete driveways are currently the standard as far as most modern homes go; they last a long time, are extremely affordable and they are able to withstand multiple types of weather conditions that you may experience. Let’s talk a bit more about some of the advantages you’ll see from having a concrete driveway installed.
Concrete Repair Options for Driveways
- Resurfacing – This is the process of replacing the top layer of a slab with an overlay or coating. Any concrete surface can be resurfaced as long as it has zero to minimal damage. If there is anything deep and extensive, it would be better off removed and replaced. This is a great way to improve the appeal and traction of a driveway.
- Refinishing – You know how wood gets a new paint job? This is similar. A concrete surface that suffers from aesthetic issues will benefit from a refinish. Driveway slabs can be stained or sealed to improve its appearance at an affordable cost.
Decorative Concrete Overlays and Coatings for Driveways
Concrete driveways are very attractive and they actually come in a wide variety of styles. They typically come in a lighter color by default, but you still have the option to choose from many different colors as well as designs. This makes incorporating your current design plans into your driveway a breeze and it allows you to fully customize to match any color scheme. On top of having several color options for your driveway, you’ll also have many texture options to choose from as well.
Stamped Overlay – Concrete stamped driveway is ideal because it has the traction and appeal that a driveway should have. The most popular stamp patterns for driveways are brick, flagstone, pavers, and more.
Knockdown Texture – Although popularly used for pool decks, the spray texture will also do wonders for a driveway. The troweled concrete finish enhances grip and the cool surface helps prevent unpleasant tire marks.
Stained Concrete – The stain can be added directly to the existing driveway or to a resurfaced one. If you fear that it would do nothing to enhance traction, you can add an abrasive to create a subtle texture that provides enough grip, especially for sloped driveways.
How to Care for Resurfaced Concrete Driveways
Concrete is very strong and durable, so you can be certain that it won’t need to be replaced for many years. Unlike asphalt, this material will never go soft in extreme heat conditions, this is a common problem for people who choose to use asphalt for their driveways. Long periods of parking and other rough conditions are not an issue for concrete driveways as they are extremely rigid and durable. The edges of driveways are also far less likely to break or deteriorate from traffic as opposed to other materials. You can rest assured that your driveway will stand strong for many years to come.
