Short Pump Concrete Services
Few Short Pump driveway paving materials can match concrete when it comes to sustainability and conserving the environment. Below are some of the top reasons why.
Concrete saves energy by reflecting light.
Concrete is naturally brighter and more reflective than asphalt, saving energy by reducing the need for lighting at night. Up to 27% of light falling on a concrete surface will be reflected, compared with as little as 5% of light from asphalt pavements.
Concrete lasts longer.
A properly installed concrete driveway should last for many decades—and at least two or three times longer than an asphalt driveway. Because concrete driveways don't need to be replaced or resurfaced as often, fewer raw materials are consumed over the life of the pavement.
Concrete can be recycled at the end of its service life.
If your concrete driveway ever needs to be replaced, it can be crushed and recycled at the end of its service life. The material from your recycled driveway can then be used as granular fill, as a base course for a new pavement, or as aggregate in new concrete.
