You have a high-performance vehicle that is your pride and joy. The thought of driving it across a dilapidated driveway might make you cringe. But even if you’re not driving an expensive car, a surface ridden with potholes can damage your suspension, chip your paint job and maybe even your car windows. Concrete Services Plano is experts at resurfacing your concrete driveway to create a smooth surface the looks good and prevents you from battling the rocks and gravel that scatter and shoot in a hundred different directions to damage your car. As the leading concrete service in North Texas, we have a stellar reputation for exceptional workmanship.
If there was a battle between asphalt and concrete for using the best materials for your driveways, concrete would be the champion every time. This is because of its ability to go the distance and withstand the test of time. Though asphalt can last 20 to 30 years, concrete has a 50-year long lifespan when accurately installed. But your concrete driveway is only as good as the contractor’s skills. We offer highly experienced teams who have decades of experience providing clients with strong and durable concrete driveways. When you call us, we come to your property to provide a detailed evaluation of your topography and the conditions that might affect the accuracy of installation.
Whether you are seeking to employ us for a traditional surface or decorative concrete, we offer superior custom designs for commercial and residential driveways. When guests enter your property, your driveway might be the first impression they have of your style and attention to detail. We can provide stamped concrete, patterns, and textures that highlight your chosen architectural style. The customization is just as strong and durable as a traditional smooth surface, but the finishes give your property the wow factor that you are seeking for a fraction of the cost of architectural remodels. We have a wide variety of styles clients can choose from or develop their patterns for a truly unique property.
Heat Reflection and Lighting
Some materials absorb heat while others reflect. This is one of the differences between asphalt and concrete material. Studies have proven that concrete is a cooler material that absorbs far less ultraviolet rays compared to its rival asphalt. There is a marked difference between the heat on asphalt versus concrete. Just ask anyone who has tried to walk without shoes on either surface and they will tell you that concrete is less painfully hot. Concrete also has the advantage of reflecting light, whether from the sun or lamppost. This makes a significant difference when wanting more security in your driveway.
There is a reason why concrete is the construction of choice for so many builders. Its load-bearing ability is unmatched by materials like asphalt, which are more flexible. Instead of concrete when it hardens becomes inflexible and this is the perfect feature for a surface that needs to handle the constant heavy weight of multiple vehicles. It is particularly advantageous when you own more than one vehicle that will sit in your driveway. Boats, motor homes, construction dumpsters, and other large objects can take their toll on asphalt. We ensure that our sealing process, as well as our use of contraction joints, are well placed to protect your concrete surface and its load-bearing capacity.
