Employing heavy equipment and specialized techniques, our team meticulously breaks down and removes the concrete slab, ensuring a thorough and efficient removal process.

The Driveway Design

We begin by gaining a thorough understanding of the desired appearance for the driveway.After the owner expresses satisfaction with and approves the proposed design, we seamlessly progress to forming the driveway. This step holds particular significance in cases where alterations to the driveway layout are envisaged. Using spray paint, we create a visual demonstration to convey the proposed design to the owner. This hands-on approach ensures clear communication and alignment of expectations, allowing for adjustments and refinements before moving forward with the construction process.

Forming The Driveway

Well-executed forming process ensures the desired slope and drainage, preventing issues such as water pooling and cracking. Additionally, forming sets the stage for other finishing techniques, such as stamping or coloring, contributing to the customization and visual appeal of the concrete driveway. In essence, meticulous forming is essential for creating a durable, functional, and visually pleasing concrete driveway.

Types Of Driveways We Build

Why Broom Finish Concrete Is Popular

Valued for its practical advantages, the textured surface achieved with a broom finish improves traction, lessening the risk of slipping, particularly in wet conditions. Broom finish concrete is highly suitable for driveways, prioritizing safety. At the same time, the broom pattern introduces a subtle texture, preventing the concrete from appearing too simple and adding to a visually interesting and diverse surface. Additionally, the easy upkeep and durability linked with broom-finished concrete make it a cost-efficient and enduring choice. This is attractive to homeowners seeking both practicality and a bit of textured charm in their outdoor areas.

Broom Finish Driveways

The broom finish is the favored choice for numerous outdoor concrete finishes, renowned for its versatility and practicality. This method, suitable for driveways, entails using a broom to establish a textured surface while the concrete is still in its wet state. Not only does it provide slip resistance, making it suitable for different weather conditions, but it also adds a subtle visual appeal. Its adaptability makes it a top choice for both homeowners and contractors, offering a reliable and cost-effective solution that combines functionality with a straightforward and timeless finish. Whether you prioritize durability, easy maintenance, or a classic aesthetic, the broom finish proves to be a dependable and enduring choice for a range of outdoor concrete applications.

Float Finish Driveways

A float finish concrete driveway is made by using a tool called a float in the final steps of placing the concrete. The float, usually made of wood or magnesium, is used to smooth and level the wet concrete surface by moving it in circles or sweeping motions. This creates a flat and even finish with a smoother texture than finishes like the broom finish. Importantly, this finish allows for extra customization using different decorative techniques or adding colors, giving homeowners the freedom to create the look they want for their concrete driveway.

Float Finish with A Border

Adding a border to a float finish driveway is more than just a decorative enhancement. Homeowners can choose from different design options, like various patterns, textures, and colors, to match the overall look of their property. This extra detail not only makes the driveway more visually appealing but also plays a key role in giving the float finish driveway a unique character. 

Sandblast Driveway Finish

A sandblast driveway finish is made by sandblasting. This involves shooting tiny particles, like sand, onto the concrete surface with strong, compressed air. By doing this, the concrete gets a textured or roughened finish, making it look unique and visually interesting. The sandblast finish is recognized for its slightly rough texture, with variations influenced by factors such as the size and type of abrasive material used in the sandblasting process. Popular for driveways and other concrete surfaces, this finish is sought after for its unique and non-slip texture. The sandblast finish also enhances traction, making it a practical choice for areas where slip resistance is a top priority.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete driveways are more than just a visual enhancement for your property; they also offer the durability and easy maintenance typically associated with concrete surfaces. Whether you have a vision for a rustic cobblestone design or a modern geometric pattern, our expertise in stamped concrete ensures that your driveway becomes a standout and enduring centerpiece for your home. Stamped concrete driveways are a testament to our dedication to creativity, showcasing unique designs and patterns that elevate the overall aesthetic appeal of your property.

Stamped Concrete and Borders

Bringing stamped concrete to new heights, we provide the option to incorporate a border, offering expanded decorative possibilities for your project. This extra detail provides a personalized and tailored finish that goes beyond the complexities of stamped patterns alone. The border, created through meticulous techniques such as saw cutting or imprinting, adds an additional layer of design, allowing you to define and enhance the edges of your stamped concrete surface. The fusion of stamped patterns with a carefully crafted border opens up a world of creative possibilities, empowering you to achieve a truly unique and personalized aesthetic for your concrete project. Whether you prefer a classic and timeless look or a more contemporary and bold design, incorporating a border to stamped concrete offers endless opportunities for creativity and customization.

Acid Stain Driveways

The attraction of acid-stained driveways rests in their impressive ability to turn regular concrete surfaces into unique, vibrant, and visually appealing features. Acid staining alters ordinary concrete, revealing a spectrum of captivating colors and patterns that inject character and uniqueness into the driveway. This method not only boosts the visual charm but also permits personalized and artistic expression, making acid-stained driveways a favored option for those desiring a distinct and lively addition to their outdoor areas.

Exposed Aggregate Driveways

Exposed aggregate is a popular choice for enhancing the aesthetics of concrete driveways. The rocks revealed in the aggregate can be sealed, creating an appealing surface that protects against dampness and cold winter weather. Even if the surface has been exposed before, it still requires maintenance during the winter. Exposed Aggregate Concrete driveways come in colored options, giving homeowners the flexibility to match or contrast with their house’s color scheme.

Exposed Aggregate with Borders

The exposed aggregate surface gains extra charm when paired with a decorative border, elevating the overall design with a unique and personalized touch. Integrating natural stone elements takes the driveway’s aesthetic to the next level, imparting a timeless and organic quality to the entire composition. This combination not only delivers a visually striking entrance but also ensures durability, making it a compelling choice for homeowners seeking both style and resilience in their driveway design.

Creative Driveway Combinations

Concrete driveways offer the opportunity for customization with various combinations and designs, providing versatility in both finish and layout. The emphasis is placed on the driveway’s design, ensuring a smooth integration between the chosen design and finish.The possibilities for color combinations are limitless, and your creative imagination is the only constraint on patterns and finishes. Every decorative concrete driveway we craft is individually tailored to meet the specific preferences and requirements of our clients.

Wave Broom Finish Concrete

The Wave Broom Finish introduces a distinct and visually dynamic texture to concrete surfaces. Using a special broom, a carefully crafted wave-like pattern is added during the finishing process. This technique creates a unique design, giving character and visual interest to the concrete, resulting in a surface with a captivating and dynamic appearance.The resulting finish not only adds a creative touch but also introduces a sense of movement and flow to the surface. The Wave Broom Finish style is an ideal option for individuals looking for a driveway with a more captivating and timeless aesthetic. Its textured pattern adds visual interest while preserving the practicality of a broom finish, making it an appealing choice for a variety of outdoor spaces

Smooth Finish Drives

Smooth finish driveways are clean and contemporary even though quite plain, however saw or hand cuts can add a decorative element. Crafted through meticulous finishing techniques, the smooth surface boasts a flat and consistent texture, enhancing the overall look of residences and commercial properties. It’s important to be aware that the sleek finish can become slippery when wet, leading property owners and developers to find a balance between the driveway’s visual appeal and the necessity for slip-resistant features, particularly in regions with regular rainfall or challenging weather conditions. Despite this consideration, many value the grace and simplicity that smooth finish driveways bring to architectural designs.

Modern Driveway Styles

One distinctive feature of this style involves driveways with strategically placed gaps between slabs, offering a visually intriguing and innovative touch. This design choice not only adds a dynamic and unique look but also opens up creative landscaping opportunities, providing a seamless blend of modernity and functionality. The integration of gaps between slabs in modern driveways exemplifies a thoughtful approach to design, resulting in a striking and distinctive feature. 

Concrete Sealer

Our concrete sealer provides several advantages, enhancing the strength and look of your concrete surfaces. Applied carefully, it acts as a protective shield, guarding against weather, UV rays, and contaminants. This helps prevent damage and extends the life of your concrete, reducing the need for frequent repairs. The sealer also resists moisture, preventing cracks and stains and maintaining the integrity of your surfaces. Beyond protection, our concrete sealer provides an added layer of sheen, intensifying the color and depth of your concrete, imparting a lustrous finish that elevates the overall visual appeal of your outdoor spaces.
