Dayton area residents know how winter ice, snow, cold, and winds can take a toll on properties, and driveways are no exception. Properly installed concrete driveways and driveway repairs can stand years of snow and ice (emphasis on the phrase properly installed). We recommend taking advantage of the summer months and installing a concrete driveway before winter weather hits.
Concrete driveway installation and repair requires proper installation knowledge, quality materials, patience, and the ability to do physical labor. If you plan on installing your own concrete driveway, here are some tips:
• Do your research. Concrete Network outlines quality concrete driveway construction basics, so you can understand the general process and see whether you’re up for the task.
• Don’t skimp by buying cheap materials. Remember that low-quality materials may only amplify long-term driveway issues by increasing the chance of cracking, pop-outs, poor drainage, and so on.
• Set aside plenty of time for completion. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and your driveway won’t be either. Make sure you have the time necessary for completing each step of the project, and don’t rush the process either.
• Consider soliciting help from experienced friends. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
