Attractive, Long Lasting, Driveways
Concrete driveways are not only visually appealing and affordable; they are also durable and versatile.
And they come in more designs and options than most people realize. (Click the link to learn more about A.Pietig your concrete driveway contractor) There are many different colors/textures and patterns that can go into the design of your concrete driveway. Concrete can be formed into a variety of different shapes, patterns, textures and colors – you don’t have to settle for a plain white slab, but if you do, you are going to still get a quality, nice-looking driveway.
Another technique that is gaining in popularity is pattern stamping. In this method the driveway is built with colored concrete that has a pattern design that looks like it’s actually cobblestone, tile or brick. This is accomplished through using textured finishes such as swirl, exposed aggregate or bromide.
Concrete Driveways- Low Cost- Great Investment
As for cost, especially when compared against asphalt, you’ll find concrete driveways to be a better option and investment. When making this decision and comparing costs between concrete and asphalt, factor in initial costs and long and short-term maintenance costs and you will see concrete is the better choice. Concrete is easy to maintain and to keep clean. The smooth surface makes it easy for a broom or snow plow or shovel – perfect for those rough Minnesota winters – and there’s no sealcoating needed like with an asphalt driveway. While asphalt driveways can last from 15-20 years, concrete driveways can last anywhere from 30 to 50 years without needing to be replaced.
Concrete Your Renewable, Recycled Driveway
Concrete is environmentally friendly as it’s composed of renewable/recycled resources. Concrete also reflects light, which can help improve safety in your yard at night.
As you can see, concrete is nothing ordinary. The options are limitless, but the cost is limited compared to other products and options.
