The Best Cement Driveway Contractor In Saskatoon
If you’re thinking of ways to re-pave your driveway, why not look into the benefits of concrete for such a project? Concrete is frequently used for driveway projects because of its optimal benefits in terms of safety, comfort, and longevity. Concrete, when installed into the driveway, is poured into a frame that outlines the exterior of your driveway and is later smoothed and left to dry before being used. Since most driveways are not covered, concrete makes for a great building material to support your driveway when exposed to the sun, heat, and other weather elements.
Measuring Your Space
Measuring your space is one of the most important steps to ensuring that the concrete in your driveway is suitable to your standards. If the concrete does not entirely fill the space available or is unevenly poured throughout the space, then it could result in premature damages to your concrete, such as cracking and crumbling. To avoid this, we properly measure all of your outdoor space where the anticipated driveway is meant to be and convert those measurements into concrete ratios that will ensure the mixture is evenly spread to every part of your new driveway.
Extending Your Driveway
If you have an existing driveway but would like to make it bigger, we can assist with extending it to other parts of your home’s exterior, either from a current size or building a new one. Many clients look into extending their driveway for further car space when parking or storing their vehicles. Others may want quicker access to the backyard, less lawn to keep up with or would simply appreciate the full exterior of their home to be even.
Concrete stamping is the process of using a stencil to the top layer of wet concrete in order to give it a unique and embossed appearance. This is done using our specialty tools which allow us to engrave designs and patterns into the concrete while it’s wet, then allowing it to dry into form, often times mimicking other building materials such as stone or concrete. Concrete stamping is a a great way to emphasize your exterior concrete on the driveway, especially if your home is made from other building materials like stone or brick. It can add depth and dimension, taking away from the standard, paved appearance.
Wraparound driveways are those that curve around the exterior of the house and offer a unique shape to the driveway itself. Many wraparound driveways also extend up into gates that separate part of the driveway from the front yard to the inside of the home where the garages are. If you’re looking for a wraparound concrete driveway or would like to learn how we can create one for you that allows you and your guests to safely enter your property, then you’ve come to the right place! We’re more than happy to show you previous examples of clients whose driveways are on hills or curved and require special attention to detail when pouring the concrete on their driveway. Some also want connection to an interior courtyard, which can be done through further planning.
