When most people think concrete, all that comes to mind is typically the boring grey slab concrete we are all used to seeing. However, the capabilities and customization of concrete have changed dramatically in recent years as companies such as Dirt Connections have innovated and expanded. A wide range of options exist to customize your new concrete paving project with colors, textures, and shaping. Whereas traditional asphalt paving can really only offer one look for your home exterior, residential concrete paving can be customized to a variety of specifications, from your home’s patio and walkways, to your driveway, front porch, and pool deck.
Benefits of Residential Concrete Paving
Choosing to go with concrete for your next paving project can offer many benefits. Below are just a few of the positives associated with choosing concrete paving options.
Modern concrete paving offers a wider variety of custom finishes and designs than would be possible with asphalt. Concrete walkways, driveways, and decks can be textured and colored to resemble a number of different stone textures and shades. Additionally, concrete can be stamped with patterns or formed into shapes, giving your home’s exterior a creative and unique look that will attract the eye with a bit of color and fun.
Lifespan and Maintenance Costs
Concrete is one of the most durable and cheap construction materials that exists. A concrete driveway is easy to maintain and inexpensive to replace should it become cracked or otherwise damaged. Your concrete walkway, driveway, deck, or slab can be useful and enjoyed by your family for decades.
By choosing a lighter colored concrete driveway, deck, or walkway, you can reduce your home’s environmental impact and utility bills. Black asphalt pavements absorb a lot of heat in summer months. The heat emitted from blacktop can in-turn heat your home’s interior, forcing your air conditioning to work harder. By opting instead for light colored concrete options, which can even be made porous to allow rainwater to be absorbed into your lawn, can greatly reduce your home’s environmental impact.
