Concrete Driveway in Leicestershire

Concrete is a favorite driveway surfacing material. It’s well suited for any size or form of driveway. Many people install concrete driveways because they’re durable. If a concrete driveway is laid and preserved effectively, it can previous for at least 30 years.

Cement driveways are also relatively low maintenance. Many professionals advise that you coat your concrete in a sealer. This isn’t essential, but it'll keep carefully the driveway in good shape and prolong its life. This sealer is straightforward to use and needs reapplying about once every 2 yrs, or whenever the driveway begins showing signals of deterioration. Concrete driveways also need periodic cleansing and sweeping.

Cement driveways are also popular because they could be customised. Different dyes can be found to change the colour of concrete to suit its surroundings. Concrete can also be used to create routine imprinted driveways, which are often unique and attractive.

Concrete driveways do have downsides. They are inclined to cracking, specially when it’s very hot or wintry or they’re under extreme pressure. Cracks in concrete are difficult to correct. Although they can be packed in, this often leaves a driveway looking patchy and mismatched. The ultimate way to repair a concrete driveway is to replace it, which is often 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.

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.

How to seal cracks in a concrete driveway

Cracks on your concrete driveway can look scruffy and unsightly. They can also lead to further damage, as moisture can get into the cracks and make them worse. So, it’s important to seal the cracks as soon as you can.

Start by cleaning the area and removing any loose materials. This will help any new materials you introduce to bond with your existing driveway. Then use concrete caulking or sealer to fill in the cracks. You’ll need to use a trowel to push the filler firmly into the crack.

Once you’ve filled in the crack, make sure you consult the product instructions and leave it for the amount of time specified before using your concrete driveway again.

Do I need to seal my concrete driveway?

Sealing your driveway isn’t 100% necessary, but it is recommended. It will help keep your driveway in good condition and increase how long it lasts. Sealer should be applied approximately once every 2 years, or when your driveway begins to show signs of deterioration.
