Frequently Asked Questions

How thick does a concrete driveway need to be?
If you drive an ordinary passenger vehicle, a thickness of four inches should be enough for your new driveway. Many contractors will also recommend additional reinforcement such as wire mesh or rebar. For heavier vehicles a thickness of at least five inches is usually required.
Which is better for a driveway, concrete or asphalt?
Concrete is an excellent choice for any driveway because it is extremely durable and does not require much maintenance. A concrete driveway could last up to 30 years or more. Asphalt is generally cheaper to install and it’s also easier to repair, but it will need regular maintenance, including sealing every three to five years.
Do I need to seal my concrete driveway?
Sealing is not as important for concrete driveways as it is for asphalt. However, applying a sealant can help to extend the life of your new concrete surface. Choose a protective product that will defend your driveway against the elements as well as oil stains and other signs of wear. A solvent-based sealant will provide a high-quality barrier and should last up to five years once applied.
