Sidewalk and Driveway
There are two key characteristics of a driveway and walkway that make concrete such a great material to opt for when either installing or updating one. First, concrete is exceptionally versatile in the way that it can be designed and finished, meaning that you can achieve the look of even the most expensive materials at a fraction of the cost. Second, concrete is incredibly hardwearing, which, given the frequent use of both driveways and sidewalks, makes it a phenomenal option that will last for years.
Driveways are constantly being tested by the number of vehicles that utilize them. The wear of your driveway is not only affected by the frequency with which it must encounter vehicles but their weight too. Concrete is so hardwearing that it not only negates the effects of frequent use but also the pressures of heavy vehicles. While there are physical challenges that a driveway must face, there are also aesthetic attributes that it should possess. Your driveway is the first thing that both you and guests see when entering your home – it should look good! Stamped and decorative concrete offers homeowners endless design options without sacrificing price or lifespan, meaning that it meets both the physical and style criteria that a driveway should account for.
Sidewalks & walkways
As the name suggests, sidewalks see a lot of, well, walking. The traffic it encounters is not only human; pets and gardening tools will contribute to the overall wear of your sidewalk. It is important that when you choose a material for your sidewalk, you choose one that can weather the tests it will inevitably face. Concrete provides all of the hardiness required to do this and more! Concrete, given its flexibility, is also a great material for those looking to create a walkway that does not follow standard practices, such as those that follow the flow of the landscape, rather than cut through it.
