When choosing a material for your driveway, you need to make sure that it looks good and stays durable. Remember, your driveway will see many years of daily wear and tear from cars and other vehicles. To help you choose, here are three great reasons to concrete for your driveway.
When most people think of concrete, they think of grey construction concrete. While this is an option, there are lots of different concreting styles and techniques available today. You can opt for exposed aggregate; a concrete that incorporates stones to create a distinctive rough, pebble-like finish or choose stamped concrete, which integrates a pattern or texture into the surface to mimic pavers or stones. You can even colour your concreting to add more texture or personality.
Unlike other driveway materials, such as stone tiles and bricks, concreting is extremely cost-effective. While the price of your concrete driveway will depend on what exactly you choose (coloured, sealed, stamped etc.), on the whole, your driveway will cost you far less. Better yet, it’s very easy to extend your driveway with the same concreting later down the line.
Concrete driveways are very easy to maintain, especially if they are sealed. Simply hose down or sweep you driveway clean as needed. If it starts looking a bit grimy, simply organise a pressure clean and it will come back looking as good as new. If you opt for coloured concrete, just make sure you reseal your driveway every 2-3 years.
