Driveways, Sidewalks, and Patios
As professional concrete pavers, most of the jobs that we are called in to work on actually involve a driveway, a sidewalk, or a patio. This is usually because driveways and sidewalks near driveways are usually under more stress than other areas because they have to handle the weight of the cars that drive up on them. Patios on the other hand along with other areas of the sidewalk face other issues. Concrete structures that are placed near trees or water may have a tough time with roots or with water that is filtering underneath them. Pools, trees, and drain systems are their biggest enemies!
While driveways are only driven upon a couple of times a day that doesn’t mean that they don’t carry a car’s weight often. Add to that the fact that most driveways have slight slumps that make up the way to the top of the driveway. While a slight incline will lead down onto the street. If that slope is not set up properly it can be an area that is going to give you constant troubles. When a crack forms in a driveway especially in a part of the driveway that sees a lot of vehicle traffic during the day the crack grow quickly. Giving people more and more problems. We can come in and smoothen out the original surface and then replace the concrete to make sure that cracks don’t continue to form!
Hitting the edge of your sidewalk with your car constantly can bring forth problems. Sometimes these parts of sidewalks are not fully fit to be able to handle impact with cars. This will make for interesting results that can see you cracking your own sidewalk. Also parts of sidewalks that see a lot of water flow under them can really face some issues. We already talked about how water is one of concretes worst enemies here it can show up from time to time.
Sorry for not including warehouses in the title and taking all of the people that are looking to have the concrete in your warehouse replaced by surprise! Commercial warehouses that get a lot of heavy duty traffic and loading and unloading of packages can really see their concrete floors deteriorate right before their eyes.

Calling in for a repair even when the crack hasn't fully developed yet can be a wise move. A cheap quick fix that doesn’t disturb the flow of your business will always beat an expensive major overhaul that stops your business.
