Start with Proper Care and Maintenance
If it happens that you are here before your concrete has faded, then we commend you on your proactiveness. Mindfulness and routine maintenance can prevent your concrete driveway from fading early.
First and foremost, clean your driveway regularly, and immediately when there is a spill. Motor oil, radiator fluid, and other chemicals can penetrate down to a quarter inch in concrete, so you will have to use absorbent materials to soak them up. It’s important that you also sweep leaves and grass clippings from your driveway as these activate chemical reactions as they decay, leaving stains on your concrete.
Simply Add A New Layer of Concrete
Concrete is tough enough to withstand great pressure, but the elements as well as chemical, oil, and paint spills can discolor and deteriorate your driveway. Even dropped leaves can decay on the concrete and leave unattractive stains. These stains can be serious eyesores but nowhere near as awful as rusted and crumbling concrete. The good news is there is a quick and affordable solution.
You do not have to replace your driveway to get rid of those problems. Our concrete resurfacing is a great way to make your old and tired driveway look brand new again. Call Artistic Concrete Designs to learn about our concrete resurfacing services and packages.
