Driveways & Walkways
Whichever way you get to your chosen destination, you will always either need to go along a walkway or dive up a driveway. This is the first impression both you and other people will have of your home or business. It is critical that this impression is a good one as it sets the tone for the interior, and unconsciously sets the expectation of your guests and clients. Having a well presented exterior will often set a positive mood for your clients and guests, especially if they are first time visitors. As they both state in their names, it is the “way” to your destination, and should be a pleasant one.
Design If you do not already have a design in mind for your area, our contractors are able to assist and advise on the best way to utilize your area. You can work with our contractors as a team to determine the area you have available, the size of the driveway or walkway that you would like to create as well as the shape. We are able to give guidelines on what we have found to be appropriate, taking into consideration large vehicles and mobility assistance to ensure that the design of your driveway and walkway is suitable to cater for each of your needs, as well as those of your guests.
Foundation Before we are able to commence any works on your selected design of your driveway or pathway, we need to ensure that the surface is prepared. That may mean removal of the current surfacing you have, clearing the land and making sure there are no tree roots which may grow underneath the path. The purpose of this is to ensure that you get the longest possible life span out of your driveway and walkway. Having a stable foundation and ensuring that there are no elements that may impact the quality and durability of our services is one of our primary focuses to ensure your satisfaction.
Appearance As mentioned earlier, the pathway to your destination is often the first element seen by both yourself and your visitors. This means that consideration needs to be put into the aesthetics of your driveway and pathway. This includes choosing the correct color and pattern that is suited to your area. Whilst basic concrete without any additions will do the job, it is the basic option and may not be the first impression you are wanting. We have a detailed description in our service page titled Decorative Concrete, which may assist you with inspiration of how to make the most of out of your area.
Maintenance Although our contractors take every precaution to ensure that you will get the longest possible life span out of your selected concreting service, the elements will eventually have an impact on the appearance of your driveway and pathway. This generally takes a number of years, but we are able to provide repair services to the affected areas. We would recommend that these are addressed whilst the repair works are minor. If the need for maintenance is postponed and minor cracks turn into major cracks, it can cause possible safety risks due to the uneven ground.
