Creative Living : DRIVEWAYS Considering concrete for your new driveway? A professionally done concrete driveway combines quality workmanship and materials to create a product that lasts for many years. Typical Concrete Virginia Beach material is a combination of different elements. Cement (composed often of limestone, calcium, silicon, and aluminum), ash, water, aggregate (larger chunks of gravel and sand with crushed stone), and steel re-bar to reinforce the pour. Occasionally as well, the concrete mixture will be treated for aesthetic benefit. ‘Stamped concrete’ has designs added to it, from stone and brick patterns to natural designs like shells and wood and can be dyed into certain tints as well.

THINGS TO CONSIDER with your Concrete Virginia Beach , The pouring of a home driveway is a very long term investment. This will be a permanent addition to your home, and as such, proper planning should go into the decision making process in every step. First of all, consider the lay of your land. The geography of your home is important. If you live on a hill, making sure drainage is possible is vital. Also, large rocks or trees can be very difficult to dig up and remove, so it may be better and more visually appealing to build the driveway so it goes past the obstructions. A circular driveway, while uncommon, has the benefit of allowing you to drive forward into traffic when exiting your driveway. Creative Living concrete contractors Virginia beach.

THE PROCESS? The driveway site is first excavated and prepped with a Class #5 base fill. The Class #5 fill is used to create a stable foundation for the application of driveway concrete pours. The driveway area is then formed to dimension with rigid steel forms and stakes that prevent bowing. Concrete contractors Virginia beach . Reinforced rebar is placed and tied into itself. Concrete Virginia Beach is then poured 5 inches thick (commercial driveways are usually poured 6-8 inches thick to compensate for the weight of tractor trailers, aerial lifts and other extremely heavy machinery not typically found parked in front of the average home!). Typically a 6.5 bag or 4500 PSI concrete mix with a granite aggregate is used for the pour. Expansion and control joints are used for sections amounting to the 70 sq. ft or less, this aids in preventing the concrete from cracking. Ideally look for your driveway to be hand finished to a non-skid surface and a cure/seal compound to be applied. Your new Concrete Virginia Beach driveway will be ready for use after 5-7 days and will provide many years of dependable use.
