The Driveway Design

We initiate the process by establishing a precise vision for the desired driveway aesthetics. Typically employing spray paint as our tool of choice, we provide property owners with a vibrant and detailed preview of the intended driveway design. This initial step allows for a clear communication of ideas and ensures that the property owner has a tangible representation of the proposed design before any physical work commences. This visual preview becomes an essential part of our collaborative approach, fostering a shared understanding and facilitating any adjustments or refinements to guarantee the final result aligns perfectly with the client’s expectations. Upon obtaining the owner’s approval and satisfaction with the design, we seamlessly transition to the subsequent stage—the formation of the driveway. This careful and detailed approach ensures a clear understanding of the envisioned driveway appearance before progressing to the execution phase

Driveway Forming

 A carefully executed forming process ensures the desired slope and drainage, preventing problems like pooling and cracking by directing water away from the driveway. Additionally, a carefully formed concrete driveway sets the foundation for other finishing techniques, such as stamping or coloring, adding further customization and visual appeal. In essence, the importance of meticulous forming cannot be overstated, as it lays the groundwork for a durable, functional, and visually pleasing concrete driveway

Types Of Driveways We Build

Broom Finish Concrete

This texture not only creates visual appeal but also plays a vital role in improving traction, especially in wet conditions where the likelihood of slipping is increased. The broom finish, with its roughened texture, provides an effective solution to mitigate this risk, ensuring a safer environment for individuals walking or driving on the driveway. Simultaneously, the broom pattern introduces a nuanced texture, preventing the concrete from looking overly plain and contributing to a visually captivating and varied surface. Moreover, the easy maintenance and durability associated with broom finished concrete establish it as a cost-effective and enduring solution, appealing to homeowners who value both functionality and a touch of textured charm in their outdoor spaces.

Broom Finish Driveways

As an ideal choice for homeowners seeking both reliability and textured elegance in their outdoor spaces, a broom finish driveway stands out for its durability and easy maintenance. Beyond its practical benefits, the distinctive texture achieved through the finishing process, employing a broom, enhances both the visual allure and functional aspects of driveways. This specific finish not only introduces a mildly textured surface, improving traction and reducing the risk of slipping, particularly in wet conditions but also adds a nuanced visual interest with the broom pattern, preventing the concrete from appearing monotonous.

Float Finish Driveways

The Sponge or Float finish stands out as a textured surface that skillfully blends safety with an attractive decorative touch. This uneven and textured surface caters to those desiring a more relaxed and non-uniform aesthetic, setting it apart from the sleek appearance of a broom finish driveway. Typically, Float finish driveways come at a similar cost to broom finish driveways, often incorporating additional intricacies carved with a saw to introduce extra decorative elements. Saw cutting is frequently utilized to craft borders, offering additional customization possibilities. As a standard practice for all our concrete projects, it is recommended to apply a concrete sealer.

Float Finish with A Border

The allure of incorporating borders into a Float finish driveway lies in the opportunity to elevate its aesthetic appeal with precision and finesse. Borders, created through meticulous saw cutting, add a layer of sophistication and customization to the textured surface. These carefully defined edges not only enhance the overall visual impact but also provide a structured and polished look to the driveway. The interplay between the irregular texture of the Float finish and the precision of the borders creates a harmonious contrast, making the driveway a truly unique and eye-catching feature in outdoor spaces. This thoughtful detailing not only reflects a commitment to craftsmanship but also allows homeowners to infuse their personal style into the design, making the driveway a distinctive expression of both artistry and functionality.

Stamped Concrete Driveways

Our team, with expertise in stamped concrete, meticulously designs and imprints patterns onto the concrete during the initial pouring, replicating the appearance of natural materials like stone, brick, or slate. Using a variety of patterns and textures, we transform ordinary concrete surfaces into unique and visually appealing features. Stamped concrete driveways not only enhance the visual appeal of your property but also provide the durability and low maintenance typically associated with concrete. Whether you envision a rustic cobblestone design or a more modern geometric pattern, our proficiency in stamped concrete ensures that your driveway becomes a distinctive and enduring centerpiece for your home.

Acid Stain Driveway versus Broom

An acid-stained driveway goes through a special process where acid, water, and metallic salts are applied. This creates lively earthy colors and marbled patterns that look like natural stone. This method allows for unique and artistic driveway designs. The stain soaks into the concrete, making it resistant to fading, peeling, or chipping. On the other hand, a regular broom finish driveway gets its look through broom-texturing during the finishing process. It has a more classic appearance with a bit of a rough surface, making it safer in wet conditions by improving traction and reducing the chance of slipping. While a broom finish is known for its durability and easy maintenance, the acid-stained option stands out for its artistic flexibility and enduring resilience, appealing to those seeking either a classic or a more personalized and visually striking driveway.

Exposed Aggregate Driveways

An exposed aggregate driveway offers a myriad of benefits, combining both aesthetic appeal and durability. This type of driveway showcases the natural beauty of the aggregates embedded in the concrete surface, creating a textured and visually interesting finish. The exposed aggregate not only adds a decorative element but also enhances traction, making the driveway safer, especially in wet conditions. Beyond its visual charm, the exposed aggregate surface is known for its durability and resistance to wear, ensuring a long-lasting and low-maintenance driveway. This makes it an excellent choice for homeowners seeking a resilient and visually appealing solution for their outdoor spaces.

Exposed Aggregate with Borders

One of the more expensive driveway options, the combination of exposed aggregate with a border is highly sought after for its appealing aesthetics. Borders for exposed aggregate can include various concrete finishes, as well as natural stone or brick mortared borders. Exposed aggregate concrete driveways are widely popular due to their durability and visual charm. To visualize and plan border design options before formation, spray paint is often used, providing a clear visual depiction.

Stamped Concrete and Borders

Combining stamped concrete driveways with borders presents an elegant and versatile option, showcasing a multitude of choices and effects for concrete driveways.  You can use integral color hardeners or topical color hardeners to create different looks. The palette includes hundreds of color options, allowing you to mimic lifelike natural rock and stone effects. The placement of borders, determined by the desired finish, can take place either preceding or following the main body of the concrete.

The Light Sandblasted Driveways

The process of sandblasting the concrete surface involves using fine abrasives to create a light texture. This technique is meticulously executed to ensure that the depth is controlled, revealing only the sand within the concrete matrix while eliminating any visible aggregate. The result is a driveway with a subtle finish that exudes a polished and modern appearance. This careful approach to sandblasting not only contributes to the aesthetic appeal but also serves a practical purpose. The pristine and refined surface achieved through light sandblasting not only enhances the visual elegance of the driveway but also maintains a smooth and even texture, making it both pleasing to the eye and conducive to practical use. This meticulous treatment adds a touch of sophistication to the overall design, creating a driveway that seamlessly combines aesthetics and functionality. 

Concrete Sealing

Maintaining the longevity and appearance of your poured concrete driveway is crucial. To protect it from winter damage, the initial step is to keep the driveway free of salt and other ice melt products. Avoid corrosive chemicals and oil leaks from your vehicle, as these stains can be difficult to remove. Regularly sealing your decorative driveway is essential to safeguard and preserve its appearance over the years. Our maintenance services are available to all clients, ensuring the lasting durability of your investment.
