Why Concrete is the Best Option for your Driveway

When most people think of concrete, they think of a gray surface lining the streets. The options for concrete driveways have increased and now there are a number of decorative options to choose from when installing a concrete driveway at your home.

Why Concrete Driveways are a Great Choice

Concrete driveways are long-lasting. Concrete driveways that are installed properly can last anywhere between 30 to 50 years. Concrete can withstand any type of weather, excessive traffic, and normal wear and tear.
Concrete is also very versatile- it can be formed into a variety of shapes, patterns and colors. Homeowners seeking concrete driveways that are not plain gray can choose to use decorative concrete to increase the curb appeal of their home. Decorative concrete can be made to resemble slate, stone, brick, tile and more. Decorative concrete can also have a textured finish; this includes swirl, bromide, or the owner’s choice of an aggregate finish.
Individuals that already have a concrete driveway installed can redo their driveway decoratively without starting from scratch. There are a number of resurfacing methods that can turn a drab gray driveway into something spectacular.

It’s Easy Being Green

Using concrete to build a driveway is an eco-friendly alternative.
Concrete is made with renewable resources- this includes limestone, other natural rocks, water and sand. If requested, a ready-mix supplier can make concrete from waste byproducts from factories and mills. Also, concrete naturally reflects light and that helps to save energy by decreasing the amount of lighting needed at night.
Keeping your concrete driveway clean and resealing it every few years (depending on the weather) is all you need to do to for maintenance. If installed by a highly qualified professional, a concrete driveway can last for years to come.
