Concrete Driveways

Your driveway is the gateway to your home.

It’s one of the first features visitors will see as they approach, so it should be designed in a way that shows off its elegance and charm while also making sure to accommodate cars needed for everyday use.

Since vehicles drive in and out, there also needs to be a sturdy foundation for their weight or else all sorts of problems can arise. Asphalt might do the job, but imagine a lawn encircled by a perimeter of unyielding asphalt.

How can this grey and sterile wasteland evoke the same feeling of elegance and wonder that a well-manicured garden would?

The answer is concrete.

Its natural colour, texture, and patterns are so appealing that it is often elevated to a landscape design element. With so many choices, there is a perfect design for every homeowner’s needs.

Concrete has been the material of choice for driveways for many years because it is also more durable than other paved surfaces.

Due to its versatility, one can also choose to uplift its appearance at any time by choosing a coloured concrete driveway solution.

The compressive strength and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions make it perfect for an eco-friendly driveway that will last a lifetime.

Why choose a concrete driveway?

Whether you’re on the hunt for a long-lasting driveway material or want to give your house curb appeal, concrete is an excellent choice. Concrete is versatile and can work well in different environments with any architectural style; preferred because of its durability, smart appearance, low maintenance needs, and high-quality construction right out of the gate.

When it comes to the design of your new driveway, you want a surface that will be both durable and slip-resistant. This is especially important if you expect the driveway to have a lot of foot traffic or experience heavy rainfall often. Concrete provides an excellent base and foundation for your driveway because of its secure, slip-resistant surface, especially when paired with the exposed aggregrate technique.

Concrete is also a fantastic choice for driveways in the hot Australian sun. With less UV radiation absorption, concrete produces cooler surface temperatures than other types of driveway materials when it’s scorching outside – an absolute lifesaver on those very hot days!

The best thing about a concrete driveway is that they’re able to be installed much more quickly than other options like asphalt or brick, which means more time for enjoying all the great features while still guaranteeing longevity so that you can have your dream driveway in no time.

How durable is a concrete driveway?

The durability and longevity of concrete is what’s made it the most popular driveway choice in Australia over the past few decades. In contrast to the more common asphalt, concrete lasts approximately 30-40 years without major maintenance.

Additionally, due to it being much more robust than other driveway materials, it has the added benefit of being able to bear more weight, so visitors can park their vehicles on it without any worries of damaging the driveway.

The Aussie climate is unforgiving, and concrete can shift when temperatures vary wildly from day-to-day within seasons like summertime – especially in Ballarat concrete driveways can lead to cracking over time.

With our highly skilled professionals, our concrete driveway contractors help minimise the risk of cracking with control joints that are installed along a drive as necessary and in varying lengths depending on what is needed by each customer.

To further assist with keeping your driveway looking its best, our company also uses a specialised sealant that helps prevent staining (car oils), protects the colour and prevents additional slippage.

Our Concrete Driveway FAQs

Concrete has been one of the most popular choices for driveways because they are low maintenance and long lasting.

How do I maintain a concrete driveway?

Concrete is the perfect material for driveways; it’s durable and requires only a little maintenance.

Fortunately, our material means you’ll never have any problems with stains or oil; all it takes is a brush and some water from the garden hose!

Our experts use sealant, which protects against these pesky issues so that they’re easier for you to clean up when they happen – just spray off any dirt using only your regular old garden hose.

We also offer you regular maintenance to keep your driveway in pristine condition, as well as concrete repair services if anything ever does happen.

What is a driveway apron, and do I need one?

A driveway apron is the first 10-15 feet closest to the road. There are two main reasons that a driveway apron is important:

the first reason is for practicality – a driveway apron helps to stabilise and reinforce your concrete driveway, preventing cracking or sinking issues with the foundation further down the line.

Secondly, they provide curb appeal by enhancing aesthetically pleasing features such as landscaping, and provide space for parking cars so that people can have access when driving out from their homes without any obstructions.

Can I choose the design of my concrete driveway?

We understand that you want your concrete driveway to reflect who you are and what kind of home or business owner you see yourself as. That is why we will work with our clients every step along the way, so they can rest assured knowing their vision for their DIY project becomes a reality without any worry on whether it was done correctly.
