Concrete driveway installations and replacements
Nothing makes a statement about your home like your “curb appeal.” When you’re driving down the street, it’s the manicured front lawn, budding foliage, and even the fresh exterior paint that will grab someone’s attention before they ever step foot through your front door.
But there’s one more element of that curb appeal you shouldn’t overlook: the driveway. A damaged or poorly constructed driveway can send serious signals about the quality and upkeep of a home.
If you’re thinking about a new construction or replacement of your current driveway, we at Divine By Design Custom Concrete & Landscaping in Puyallup, Washington offer a variety of colors and patterns and finishes to compliment any home aesthetic.
And best of all, when properly maintained, a concrete driveway with the proper level of maintained and care can last 20 to 30 years before needing to be replaced!
Getting the Concrete Curb Appeal You Deserve!
Why choose concrete for your driveway?
Cost and quality are both important considerations when it comes to any type of home renovation.
When it comes to your driveway, pavers, concrete, asphalt, and gravel encompass the four most popular choices for how to pave and level the entryway to your home.
While concrete isn’t the least expensive option, it requires less ongoing maintenance than cheaper alternatives and offers more options in terms of customization and design.
Occasionally referred to as a “cement driveway,” there’s more to creating a beautiful concrete entryway into your home than pouring out wet cement. By adding other common elements to the mixture like crushed rocks and sand, you can create a variety of customized finishes to your concrete driveway.
Staining and sealing options
Using staining and dyes, you can choose between different colors, overlays, patterned and broom finishes, and even stamped outlays.
just like stamped patios, you can create the effect of having pavers or stones instead. And because of the materials used to create a concrete driveway, the end result can be incredibly durable.
While the volume of traffic in and out of your driveway (and the types of cars coming and going) will impact the overall lifespan, concrete can be the perfect solution for heavier traffic.
Concrete driveways are exceptionally durable, but they still require a certain level of maintenance to keep their beautiful aesthetic for as long as possible.
replacing your Concrete driveway with a new installation
There’s more to properly installing a concrete driveway than pouring cement over your existing structure. In many cases the process begins by creating a stable foundation by removing all of the grass and foliage in the area to ensure a level base (typically filled with gravel).
Whether you’re thinking about replacing your existing concrete driveway or installing a brand new driveway for your home, the quality of your construction can make all the difference in the curb appeal.
When you want the best for your home, you need a concrete contractor who can create beautiful designs that will last for years to come.
