Alexandria Concrete Services
New concrete driveways and driveway replacements are without question among the best property investments and residential improvements that a home or business owner can make. Homebuilders, contractors, and landscapers uniformly agree upon this fact. Drives are needed, and they also accentuate the premises and surroundings.
Concrete driveways are durable, functional, attractive, safe, and often very much needed due to water run-off patterns or weather. Even after allowing for any special lawn concerns, they are still routinely installed without problems or difficulties.
Most importantly, concrete drives provide a great "bang for the buck" during these trying economic times. Despite being reasonably priced - a properly designed, planned, poured, shaped, finished, and cured concrete driveway will generally last for decades. Yes, decades. With hardly any upkeep costs, concrete installations are extremely cost-efficient when compared to asphalt or rock driveways. (The cost of replacing old driveways with new ones, and carting the old concrete off, is also reasonable.)
What Types Of Concrete Driveways Are Available?
Today's concrete contractors are not only able to provide basic driveway installations, but can also professionally lay decorative concrete driveways of all types. These include stamped concrete (to mimic hard stone, slate, brick, flagstone, wood, tile, geometric figures, blocks, and more) or colored concrete (acid stained, dyed, or painted, etc) and even various forms of concrete with embedded stones or pebbles. These special yet still relatively inexpensive projects add much value to properties.
