If you already own a concrete driveway and it’s beginning to show the signs of aging and exceptional deterioration, or has a tremendous amount of patching and repairs and looks patchy, blotchy and uninviting… removing and replacing it may be in order! This absolutely should be performed by a reputable concrete company like Cincinnati Concrete Contractors that will do it right the first time by performing soil tests and determining if the sub-grade is suitable to re-install the concrete driveway on the existing soil. If not, the soil should be excavated and a new base or structural material should be installed for a solid, long lasting driveway.
All driveways age and deteriorate and become a use and safety hazard. The goal with any driveway should be to maximize the life of expectancy as much as possible before having to completely remove and replace it.
A properly installed concrete driveway with regularly scheduled maintenance can last up to 20 or even 30 years! That variation in age can be determined by the stability of the sub-grade, the quality of the installation, the type and frequency of maintenance, the drainage plan and the the severity of weather that we have here in the Greater Cincinnati Area.
Concrete driveways can be beautiful addition to your home. The wide variety of different colors and patterns to choose from can give your home a unique, one of a kind look. Stamped concrete driveways, patterned concrete driveways, colored concrete driveways, concrete driveway overlays, concrete driveway staining and dyes are all beautiful additions to your property.
When it comes to durability, keep in mind the amount of traffic and the type of traffic your driveway will endure. If your driveway will have to endure exceptionally heavy vehicles, an above average amount of heavier vehicle traffic, or an above average amount of water runoff, a concrete driveway may be the answer and long term solution.
