Concrete Driveway in Bala

Concrete is a popular driveway surfacing material. It’s suited to any size or shape of driveway. Many people install concrete driveways because they’re durable. If a cement driveway is laid and taken care of appropriately, it can last for at least 30 years. Cement driveways are also relatively low maintenance. Many professionals recommend that you coat your concrete in a sealer. This isn’t essential, but it will keep carefully the driveway in good condition and prolong its life. This sealer is easy to use and needs reapplying about once every 2 yrs, or whenever the driveway starts showing signs of wear and tear. Cement driveways also need periodic cleaning and sweeping. Concrete driveways are also popular because they could be customised. Different dyes can be found to change the color of concrete to match its surroundings. Cement can be used to create pattern imprinted driveways, which are often unique and attractive. Concrete driveways do have downsides. They are prone to cracking, particularly when it’s scorching or cold or they’re under extreme pressure. Cracks in concrete are difficult to correct. Although they could be packed in, this often leaves a driveway looking patchy and mismatched. The ultimate way to repair a concrete driveway is to replace it, that can be expensive.

    FAQs

    How to concrete a driveway?

    Whether you’re going to hire a professional to create your concrete driveway or are trying DIY, it’s a good idea to know how to create one.

    Firstly, make sure you’ve thought carefully about the size and location of your driveway, and mark it out with pegs and string. Then, you’ll need to dig out the area. Ideally this should be about 20cm deep – 10cm for the subbase and 10cm for the concrete layer. Make sure this is level and compress both the soil and the subbase with a compactor if needed.

    Then, you’ll need to assemble the formwork for your driveway. These are pegged out planks of wood or metal that support the edges of your driveway while it’s setting. If your driveway is more than 4 metres long, you’ll also need to create control joints to allow the concrete to settle without cracking.

    Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to pour on the concrete. You’ll need to level it and ideally give it some texture so the surface has some grip. Cover your concrete driveway with plastic sheeting when you’re happy with the finish and leave it to set. Make sure you don’t walk or drive on it until it’s completely set – this usually takes 3-10 days. Then, you can remove the framework and enjoy your new driveway.

    My garden is sloped, can I install a patio?

    Patios are suitable for many gardens. If you do not have a flat area already, consider having some landscaping work done to create one. If your garden is on a very extreme slope, you could have a multi-layered (terraced) patio with steps between each layer. Ask for advice and get quotes if you're not sure.

    How to resurface a painted concrete patio?

    A big benefit to concrete is that you can paint it, making it easy to customise and coordinate with your outside area. However, it’s easy to resurface it too, so if you change your mind or inherit a patio that’s the wrong colour, you don’t need to worry.

    Start by cleaning the surface with water and a brush. If you come up against any tough stains, you might need to use a detergent and water mix to remove them. Then you can prepare your resurfacer.

    Generally, it’s best to apply resurfacer to a moist surface, although make sure you follow the instructions on the specific product you buy. You’ll need to mix the resurfacer with water, then pour and spread it on with a trowel or brush. You might need to apply multiple coats, and can add texture if you want to make the surface more grippy.

    Ensure you protect any expansion joints in your patio with duct tape or weather stripping to stop the resurfacer from filling them in. You can also add a colour agent to your resurfacer before you apply it if you’d like to customise the colour.

    What materials do patios come in?

    Patios can be made from brick, natural stone or paving stones or slabs. These materials come in a huge range of colours, sizes and effects, so your patio can perfectly complement your garden space. Have a look for yourself or get a paver in to show you and bring samples.
