When you are building driveways we always like to have options. If you have a clear idea of what type of driveway you want us to build that’s great. You can pass that idea onto us and we can help you turn it into reality. The thing is, when you live in a home that was built by a large building company, they are not going to complicate themselves. If they are building multiple homes simultaneously how much time do you think that they spend thinking about each particular driveway? Not much of the design basically comes standard. We can help you customize it!
Since this is the topic that we opened up with, we want to finish it up before we move onto anything else. Whether you have a blank sheet of paper or an existing driveway we could help you design a driveway that fits your current needs while also adjusting to the look and feel of your home. If you are going to be parking multiple cars on the driveway it doesn’t make a lot of sense to have a narrow path flanked by small garden areas leading to the street. We may want to expand the entrance and parking area to fit more cars. This is a very simple example of how we can adjust the design of a driveway to your needs.
Why Concrete Driveways?
This answer is simple, concrete driveways are easier to drive on, they are more durable, and they are actually more customizable than asphalt driveways or any other option that you can find. The only thing that other types of driveways could have over concrete driveways is that others will cost less upfront. The way we see it, concrete driveways are a long term investment that is going to pay high dividends on the back end of the deal.
Concrete vs Asphalt Driveways
This is one of the dilemmas that most people who are looking to build a driveway are going to face. Let’s just get this out there, asphalt is most likely going to be a bit cheaper than concrete. With a concrete driveway though you are essentially making a long term investment. The money is going to be a little more upfront, but the surface can remain untouched for the next 15 to 20 years. With asphalt, you are most likely going to be making adjustments to the surface almost yearly. This can put more strain on your budget.
Smooth Drivable Surface
If you don’t want to have a problem with your car, and just be sure that you are going to be able to always have a smooth driveway, concrete is the option. We can adjust the surface with different designs that are not only going to give you a unique look. They can also help you have a better grip when it gets cold and icy on the surface. The level of attention to detail that we are capable of providing is what can make all of the difference
