Benefits of installing a concrete driveway

  1. Lifecycle expense While pebble or asphalt driveways may have a lower upfront cost, in the longer term you’ll find concrete saves you money. The service life of a concrete driveway is, on average, about 50-60 percent longer than asphalt. When it comes to many pebble or stone mix driveways, much of the mixed material ends up in your house, washed away by rain or blown onto the road.

  2. Reduce dust and dirt in your home While many people opt for a stone or pebble driveway for cost-effectiveness, the true cost is the amount of dirt and dust that will get walked in or blown in from your drive way. We think a driveway that reduces your cleaning load is simply priceless…but lucky for you, we’re here to do it for a fair and reasonable price.

  3. Heat reflectance With Australian temperatures, we’ve all fallen victim to a hot slab of asphalt in the summer. Unlike an asphalt driveway, concrete driveways will reflect heat more than absorb it. Meaning, you can walk comfortably barefooted to your car all summer – a serious consideration for family homes.

  4. Load-baring capacity (boats, caravans, trucks) Concrete is a strong, rigid material that isn’t prone to warping, rutting or many other forms of damage. For homes with a heavy fleet of vehicles, a concrete driveway is a must – just be sure you choose the right concreter who will deliver a high standard of work your drive will stand strong for a very long time.

  5. Beauty and curb appeal As delightfully practical as concrete is, it equals in beauty and curb appeal. In fact, a nice concrete driveway will certainly help your home’s resale value. Our most commonly requested driveway finishes are: 

  • Plain concrete with stipple finish

  • Coloured concrete 

  • Exposed aggregate concrete
