Fredericksburg Concrete Services
Few Fredericksburg driveway paving materials can match concrete when it comes to sustainability and conserving the environment. Below are some of the top reasons why.
Concrete is made with renewable resources.
Unlike asphalt pavements that are made with nonrenewable petroleum supplies, concrete pavements are made from abundant, sustainable resources including water, natural rock and sand, and cement. The predominant raw material for the cement in concrete is limestone, the most abundant mineral on earth.
Concrete can utilize recycled and waste materials.
Your ready-mix supplier can also make the concrete for your driveway using waste byproducts, which reduces the consumption of raw materials and keeps waste out of landfills. Fly ash, ground blast furnace slag and silica fume—all byproducts from power plants, steel mills and other industrial processes—are commonly used as partial cement replacements. You can also use recycled aggregates in the concrete mix and reinforcing steel that has a high recycled content.
