Why Build A New Concrete Driveway?

Here are some reasons you should think about renovating your current driveway, or constructing a new one if you didn’t have it.
  • Aesthetics: Driveways can unlock a variety of landscaping options, helping you make your yard the perfect complement to your house’s theme. Concrete driveways can be stamped, plain with a stipple finish, polished or an exposed aggregate and finished in a wide range of colours to add to the curb appeal of your property.
  • Good for business: A property with an eye-catching new driveway has better chances of grabbing the attention of drive-by shoppers. This will bode well for you whether you’re in the real estate business or simply want to upgrade your living quarters.

    If you’re redoing the driveway for your commercial premises, this could also help boost your business. The charm of a modern polished or exposed aggregate driveway will add to the professional appeal of your enterprise and the impression visiting clients have of your business.   
 
  • Parking and traffic: Having a well-constructed roadway leading up to your house will make it easy for driving guests to know how to navigate your property and park their cars. A driveaway makes for organized movement and parking especially on those days you entertain many visitors.
 

Choosing the Right Driveway

Besides how much curb appeal a driveway can add to your property, there are a number of points you need to consider when choosing your driveway design. The amount of space you have will determine if a straight or curved driveway will be a better look. Some driveway construction materials offer great functionality and are low maintenance but may not live up to your expectations in terms of aesthetics.

With our years of experience in driveway concreting in Bayside, we are well positioned to recommend a great option within your budget that will suit your purpose. Give us a call today and we will arrange a site visit so as to determine the best concreting solution for your driveway. It’s our goal to build the concrete driveways Bayside residents rave about.

But a concrete driveway is not the only option. Asphalt driveways are a quite popular option because of their durability, but they are known to be quite expensive to install and maintain. They may not also offer the stylistic variety you desire, often producing a bland finish. You could also consider doing your driveway using pavers. However, they do require a lot of effort to keep clean and if traffic to your home is heavy, your driveway may begin to see wear and tear sooner than you’d like.

Concrete driveways are durable, long-lasting and come in a variety of colors. The clean lines and smooth finish give it an elegant look that`s perfect for any home or business. Concrete is also easy to maintain with regular sweeping, brushing or pressure washing. It`s also environmentally friendly because there`s no need for sealants like waxes or oils which can harm your health if they get into the air you breathe! If you want a driveway that won’t just stand out but will last longer than anything else on the market, then concrete is what you’re looking for.

A tar-and-chip driveway may seem like an attractive option if you like the look of pavers but they come with a price tag and maintenance to match. On the other hand, you may not be so enamoured with the aesthetics of this option. So what about concrete driveways? Here are a few reasons driveway concreting should be your first and last resort:

Benefits of Concrete Driveways

How Do You Maintain Your Concrete Driveway in Bayside?

After installing your concrete driveway, you need to take some steps to keep it in pristine condition for longer. Undertaking maintenance will help you avoid the expense and disruption of large scale repair works. So what does driveway maintenance entail? Just two things: cleaning and resealing.

Cleaning a concrete driveway:

Have a schedule for the regular cleaning of your driveway. There are many kinds of stains that you can stain your driveway. Leaves, grass and soil from your yard can find their way onto the driveway and be pressed onto the concrete by vehicles or feet. Plant fertilizer, oil and fuel are some of the things that can also spill onto your driveway and cause problems. Damp or humid climate can encourage the growth of mould on the driveway, particularly the parts of it that are well shaded. Oil stains and tyre marks are not unusual to find on a driveway. 

How do you get rid of the above? Spending a bit of time spraying your driveway with a garden hose fitted with a spray nozzle and scrubbing it with a stiff-bristle brush will usually do the trick. High-traffic driveways prone to stubborn stains may require you to bring in a pressure washer. You need to be careful when using a pressure washer, though, as too much pressure may cause the concrete to begin etching. 

Oil stains may not come off even when you scrub hard with a brush and detergent. Concrete cleaner or an alkaline soap could be what you require to loosen up the particles. A mixture of bleach and water is effective in dealing with mould and mildew but remember to wear gloves when scrubbing this solution. If you have any questions regarding cleaning, give our concreters Bayside a call and we’d be more than happy to give you some tips. 

Sealing a concrete driveway:

Resealing your concrete driveway will not only protect it from damage but will also enhance its appearance. A good quality acrylic sealer, blended with polyurethane or epoxy, should suffice to keep your driveway free from stains, cracks and even chipping for a long time. Sealers made using pure acrylic-resin are known to offer the best performance and are not prone to yellowing.

 

Pure epoxy or polyurethane sealers will cost more than acrylic sealers. They also may not be ideal for your driveway as they prevent moisture and air from escaping from the concrete. This may result in fogging (moisture getting trapped between the sealer and concrete and turning white). Note that the applying sealer to concrete that has not properly dried may also cause that unsightly white haze to appear on your driveway’s surface. 

 

These types of sealers also tend to make the surface more slippery. High-gloss sealers (those that form a thicker film and make the surface appear more shiny) also tend to make a surface more slippery. You may have to use an anti-slip additive with such to keep the surface safe, especially when it’s wet.

 

As the experts in residential concreting Bayside residents prefer, we are able to assist you in carrying out maintenance on your concrete driveway. We have the equipment and expertise to do thorough cleaning on any kind of concrete surface. We also have the know-how on the usage of different types of sealer and their effects. You can therefore count on us to help you prolong the life of your concrete exposed aggregate driveway, stamped or coloured concrete driveway.
