The Driveway Building Process

Driveway Removal

If you are in need of a driveway removal, our comprehensive services should be your top choice. With the necessary tools and expertise to break and clear away concrete driveways, we can efficiently take care of the job for you. We also transport the removed concrete to a recycling center so that it can find new life as a sustainable base for future projects – this not only saves costs but eliminates having to hire another contractor solely for demolition. Our approach is both savvy and budget-friendly, making us an ideal option when it comes time to start your project!

The Importance Of Design

Having a concrete driveway design is essential for any home. Not only does it add to the aesthetic appeal of your property, but it also increases its value and provides safety. Concrete driveways are highly durable and can withstand extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain or snowfall without cracking or crumbling like asphalt driveways do. In addition, they require minimal maintenance compared to other materials such as gravel which need frequent replacement due to wear and tear over time. Finally, having a well-designed concrete driveway adds curb appeal which helps make your house stand out from others in the neighbourhood when potential buyers come looking for homes!

Forming The Driveway

Forming a concrete driveway requires a process that is both methodical and artful. We begins with planning to ensure the driveway fits the landscape and serves its purpose effectively. After outlining the precise dimensions, we excavate the area, removing any existing material and leveling the ground for a solid foundation. Next, we install wooden forms to shape the driveway, ensuring they are nice and straight or curved if the design requires one.  A layer of compacted gravel is added stability and drainage. Once prepared, the concrete mix, often customized with colors or textures to match the homeowner’s vision, is poured into the formwork.

Broom Finish Concrete

Broom finish concrete has remained a beloved choice for many, regardless of differing preferences, largely due to its synthesis of functionality and aesthetic allure. On a practical level, this type of finish is revered for its durability and non-slip surface, making it a safe option for all weather conditions. The simple process of dragging a broom across the wet concrete creates a texture that prevents slipping, crucial for areas like driveways and walkways. From an aesthetic standpoint, the broom finish offers a universally appealing, subtly textured surface that blends seamlessly with various architectural styles. It has the ability to maintain a clean and neat appearance while adding a layer of visual interest. Moreover, it serves as a neutral base that can be enhanced with stains or colorings if desired. Thus, the continuous popularity of broom finish concrete can be attributed to its successful marriage of practical benefits and versatile visual charm.

Types Of Driveways We Build

Beautiful Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete driveways show our dedication to creativity and accuracy. We use many detailed patterns and textures to make normal concrete surfaces into special, attractive features. Our trained workers carefully design and imprint patterns onto the concrete when it’s first poured, making it look like natural materials like stone, brick, or slate. Stamped concrete driveways make your property look better and are also strong and easy to maintain. Whether you want a classic cobblestone design or a modern geometric pattern, our skill with stamped concrete means your driveway will be a unique and long-lasting highlight for your home.

Float Finish Driveways

The float finish, or sponge finish, concrete driveway has a textured surface that is safe and looks nice. It’s a good choice for those who want a more relaxed, not perfectly straight look, different from the regular broom finish driveway. Float finish driveways cost about the same as broom finish driveways and often have saw-cut details for extra decoration. Saw cutting is also used to make borders, giving more options to make it your own. Like all our concrete work, it’s best to put a concrete sealer on the driveway.

Float Finish with A Border

The overall cost of a float finish driveway with a border might be slightly higher than a standard float finish driveway. Whether the border is monolithic or poured separately depends on its size and shape. We offer customization options for the border, including a variety of finishes and color choices upon request.

Exposed Aggregate Driveways

Exposed aggregate driveways are widely recognized for their durability and unique textured look, thanks the partially exposed aggregate rocks after washing or sandblasting is completed. This design technique enhances the driveway’s aesthetic appeal while providing extra grip, an important feature for driveways where slip resistance is key. The beauty of exposed aggregate lies in its versatility; homeowners can choose from a variety of aggregate types and colors, offering a large of design options to match the overall style of their property. 

Exposed Aggregate with Borders

Exposed aggregate concrete driveways, popular for many years, can feature borders in any concrete finish, or with natural stone or brick mortared borders. For mortared choices, we build a sunken rough slab border. Although combining exposed aggregate with a border is a costlier driveway option, it’s highly regarded. Spray paint is often used to give a clear preview of border designs before they’re made.

Acid Stain Driveways

Acid-stained driveways, known for turning regular concrete into vibrant, unique features, involve applying an acid, water, and metallic salt mixture to concrete, causing chemical reactions that create a large range of colors. This results in deep, earthy colors and patterns like natural stone. These driveways are not only visually striking but customizable and durable, resisting fading, peeling, and chipping. Their combination of artistic flexibility and resilience makes acid-stained driveways a popular choice for those wanting a unique, long-lasting outdoor aesthetic.

Broomed Finish Driveways

Broom finish driveways are a common and functional option for concrete surfaces. The distinctive texture, created by using a broom in the finishing process, adds to the visual appeal and enhances the driveway’s functionality. The surface is slightly rough, increasing grip and lowering slip risk, especially when wet. Additionally, the broom pattern prevents the concrete from appearing too uniform, adding subtle visual interest. Along with its practical benefits, a broom finish driveway is durable and easy to maintain, making it an excellent choice for homeowners who want a reliable and elegantly textured driveway.

Light Sandblast Driveways

Light sandblasting texturizes concrete surfaces, creating a refined, contemporary finish that complements various architectural styles. It allows for exact depth control, revealing only the sand in the concrete matrix, for a clean, functional surface. The charm of lightly sandblasted driveways comes from their ability to blend seamlessly into the environment, enhancing a property’s overall aesthetic appeal.

Wave Broom Finish Concrete

The Broomed Wave Finish gives concrete surfaces a special and eye-catching texture. This is done using a special broom with a wave pattern, creating a unique wavy design on the concrete. This finish gives a creative and flowing look to the surface. If you want a driveway with an interesting and classic look, the Wave Broom Finish is a good choice. It keeps the practical benefits of a regular broom finish, making it a good option for different outdoor areas.

Creative Driveway Combinations

Every decorative concrete driveway we build is tailored to meet our clients’ specific tastes. Your imagination is the only limit when it comes to patterns and finishes. The range of color combinations is endless and fully customizable. We place equal importance on the design and finish of the driveway, striving for a seamless integration. With custom concrete driveways, you have the flexibility to choose from a multitude of combinations and designs for both finish and layout.

Stamped Concrete and Borders

Stamped concrete driveways with borders are a high-end choice that offer many design options. You can create different looks with color hardeners. You can choose from eight color options to mimic the look of real rock and stone. Depending on the look you want, the borders can be poured before or after the main part of the concrete.

Smooth Finish Driveways

Smooth finish driveways give a neat and stylish look that makes outdoor areas look new and modern. They’re made using special techniques that create a flat and even surface, which can improve how homes and businesses look. But, you should know that this type of driveway can get slippery when it’s wet. So, if you live in a place where it rains a lot or gets very cold, you might need to think about whether a smooth driveway is the best choice, or if you need something that’s more slip-resistant.

Modern Driveway Styles

Modern driveways with intentional gaps between slabs accommodate gravel or grass, adding greenery and creating more eco-friendly, visually dynamic spaces. These gaps enable creative landscaping, allowing homeowners to blend nature with the driveway’s contemporary aesthetic. Whether garnished with greenery or kept minimalist, these driveways combine functionality and design, offering a personal touch that enhances the property’s architecture.

Concrete Sealing

Concrete driveways endure a lot of wear and tear more than other concrete areas. To prevent harm, it’s important to keep your driveway free of salt and other substances used to melt ice. Prevent your car from leaking corrosive chemicals and oil on your new driveway as some stains may be hard or even impossible to get rid of. Regular use of a sealant on your decorative driveway is key to maintaining its good looks over time. Our maintenance services are accessible to all clients, ensuring the sustained durability of their investment.
