Concrete is a very popular and effective material for sidewalks, driveways, patios, and stairs however over time concrete can crack or chip and needs to be either replaced or repaired. Concrete installation usually involves removing existing concrete, preparing the ground and mold where it is going to be poured, and then pouring and setting the concrete. Sometimes concrete can simply be repaired or power washed but usually a new installation is the best way to fix heavily damaged concrete. Another good way to maintain concrete is through power washing. A power wash will help maintain concrete and will give it a face lift after it has gotten dirty.
Concrete can also be used to create chimney caps, window sills, and accents on the outside of your home.

Concrete Driveway – Preparations
The old driveway has been removed and currently the rebar and gravel that will support the new cement driveway is being laid down. The wooden boards around the edges are designed to keep the concrete in place as it settles and will give the concrete the desired shape. We’ve set up cones and caution tape to make sure no one get hurt or damages the site.
Concrete Installation – Driveway Drying
The concrete has been poured on the driveway and it is currently drying. We have shaped the lines in the driveway to create four separate areas and we have also matched the sidewalk area to the surrounding sidewalk pattern. Dividing concrete into blocks like this helps water drain and also breaks the concrete up into sections to prevent cracks and to allow easy repairs of sections should any damage occur. Our cones and caution tape are still in place to make sure this concrete dries smoothly without getting stepped on.

Driveway from street angle. We see that the new cement is smooth with clean, neat lines. This home will look great with its new driveway and the cement should stay in excellent shape for years to come. The walkway in the background connects with the other cement areas that we have just poured around this house.
