South Omaha Driveway Repair

When you live and work in the north country, you see a lot of work being done around the city on surface concrete areas such as the highway projects, the chip sealed parking lots, and new blacktop in places all over retail and medical offices. It seems that every year during the height of summer, multi-lane roadways are forced down to one lane for construction, putting off travelers of both kinds of local and non-local tourists alike. The reason that the projects seem to be a never-ending stream of repairs in progress is that concrete is highly susceptible to moisture and temperature.

Concrete Driveway Specialists

In the north, we have more than average rainfall and less than average temperatures for a good portion of the year, certainly from November to April. Though concrete is by far one of the most stable materials for roads, driveways, and parking lots, it can take a beating from day one. If it is installed correctly from front to finish, concrete truly stands the test of time better than other materials. With a little maintenance, it can last for decades without needing to be replaced.

When putting in a new driveway, firstly the concrete has to be installed in above freezing temperatures, making winter concrete pours risky and prone to costly mistakes. Secondly, the amount of water used in the mixture needs to be perfect or the concrete will begin cracking almost immediately upon drying with the slightest stress like pressure from the weight. The less water the better in most cases. However, water makes concrete easier to pour evenly with less work, so the tendency for many contractors is to add water to both stretch the concrete and make it pour faster and more fully with less handling and waste. The result will be less than perfect when corners like these are cut.

Your Driveway Service Professionals

If you bought your house with a concrete driveway already installed and it is showing signs of disrepair, you can imagine how it was installed and see the kinds of things that begin to show. Alligator cracking, potholes, and uneven concrete are the telltale signs that either the concrete was not installed properly or the driveway has not been attended to with the maintenance that was needed to ward off such degradation to the concrete. When concrete pouring deviates from simple but powerful rules, it can wreak havoc on your concrete driveway.
