Benefits of a Concrete Driveway
There are many reasons to choose a concrete driveway over an asphalt or gravel one in Edmonton. Firstly, anyone who has tried to clear gravel of snow and ice during Alberta’s long winters knows that a flat, even surface makes a big difference. Paved surfaces also reduce mud and dirt, keeping your vehicles cleaner and limiting erosion. Most importantly, however, concrete lasts. While asphalt will need replacing and sealing more frequently, and is vulnerable to pitting and potholes, an expert concrete installation will remain solid and unmovable, giving a return on its additional investment many times over.
Preparation and Installation
Proper subgrade preparation is key in any climate with a freeze-thaw cycle, and Alberta is certainly no exception. Edmonton Concrete Ltd. ensures proper compaction and drainage to allow for the longest lasting concrete installation possible. Soil is evaluated, then leveled and compacted with heavy machinery to ensure uniform support. Often, a gravel or crushed rock subbase is laid down to provide additional stability, as well as extra protection from moisture. On top of this solid foundation, we pour a thick layer of carefully formulated concrete mix, chosen for maximum durability in our climate, and designed to support the full weight of your vehicles or equipment for decades.
A Strong Finish
The right driveway is one that is both aesthetically pleasing, and designed for maximum durability and practicality. Our driveways are always properly graded for maximum drainage, flattened evenly to prevent the collection of water or ice, and thoroughly sealed against the elements. We offer an array of different finish types as well, to ensure good traction and tire grip in all weather conditions. Classic broom finish is a popular and practical option. We also offer exposed aggregate and stamped concrete finishes, to give a touch of elegance, or to echo the design of your existing yard or home. The possibilities for customization are nearly limitless! Check out some examples of what we can do with stamped concrete to take your driveway to the next level.
If your driveway is still structurally sound, but needs a facelift, we offer a number of options for restoring it. We can help to repair the underlying subgrade if there are sunken areas, fix discolouration, fill cracks, and level or replace specific sections. Depending on the driveway’s condition, we can help you improve the looks of what’s already there, or add a whole new surface that will elevate the appearance of your entire property.
