Our Concreting Services

Concrete driveways, sometimes known as cement driveways, are the perfect solution for the modern-day home in Ballarat. Its durability will provide you with not only a cost-benefit in the long term but with lower yearly maintenance as well. Concrete driveways can last up to 25 to 35 years, based on the quality of works and weather conditions.
If plain concrete isn’t your style, then perhaps coloured concrete driveway is. We can bring your driveway to life by colourising it. We blend concrete with a coloured oxide that ensures a long-lasting life. Simply browse through our available range and choose which colour best represents your lifestyle.
When a coloured driveway just isn’t enough, we can assist you with a stamped concrete driveway. Occasionally known as textured concrete as well, we can transform your driveway to appear like stone, slate, pavers or even wood, without jeopardising longevity. What’s more, you can even colourise it to make it stand out even more.
Stencil driveways can make your home stand out in a busy street. By using versatile stencils, we can apply complex and visually appealing designs atop your concrete driveway that can make it look like pavers, stone or even brick. Once fresh concrete has been laid, we apply the stencil onto the concrete and apply pressure with a special roller.
Transform your home or business by adding an exposed aggregate driveway to your property. Be blown away by the decorative and functional material. Its durability and grip resilience is perfect for the ever-changing Ballarat weather. Our aggregate is sourced locally and is perfect for footpaths, driveways and patios.
Crushed Rock / Gravel
A cost-effective option for large properties looking to add in a driveway. Crushed rock driveways, otherwise known as gravel driveways, are the cheaper alternative to concrete, but still enable you with a surface that assists vehicles with grip and keeping your property tidy from mud build-up and potholes.

Concrete pergolas and patios are the perfect way to add an outdoor entertainment area to your home. They’re low maintenance, durable and can withstand even the harshest of weather, and are more affordable than a wooden deck.
Retaining walls can be both functional and visually appealing, making them the perfect solution for small homes or homes built on an incline. You can incorporate your landscaping designs around the wall to make them more aesthetic, while not sacrificing stability.
Concrete paths, walkways and footpaths have many benefits over other materials, from its durability and low maintenance costs, which makes it the perfect choice over pavers and stones. They’re strong and can withstand high weather temperatures and erosion.

Cement is just one compone that makes up concrete.
Concrete is normally made of sand, water, hair-sized rocks, and cement. The cement plays a critical role in holding the components together. Cement does not have any significant weight-bearing responsibilities on its own but instead provides the necessary properties for allowing the concrete to bear weight without cracking or breaking up.
It depends on your location, the type of job, the quantity that’s needed, and other factors. Get in touch with our concreting team to find out more about the costs in Ballarat or by filling out our contact form.
The concrete mix ratio changes depending on the batch, but a typical mix is 2 parts aggregate to 1 part water. The smaller the fraction of water added per volume of cement used, the stronger and more durable will be finished product’s strength.
When it comes to costs, installing a gravel driveway is the cheaper option. This means less invasive construction and lower labor expenses – which can make or break your budget! However, if you’re looking for something more aesthetically pleasing with low upkeep requirements, concrete might be better suited to your property’s landscape needs.
There are many factors that go into the calculation of concrete. Depending on the property size, location or how much reinforcement is used in different areas of your project will all determine what type and colour it needs to be as well as its price.
