Since the use of deicing products can potentially cause damage to your concrete, it is important to note that this damage may not be covered by your warranty.
Because some geographical areas use deicing products on city streets, county roads and state highways, melt-off of “salty” slush from your vehicle may also cause damage. When this occurs, as conditions permit, hose off accumulation(s) of salt deposited by cars on newly placed driveways and garage slabs. Annual fall application of a concrete sealer will help avoid damage to driveways and garage slabs.

If you’re looking for concrete with a little more texture to it, exposed aggregate may be for you. This finish gives traditional concrete a more natural look. It’s done by brushing and washing away surface mortar as the concrete begins to harden, so the stone or gravel in the concrete becomes visible. Attractive stone, such as marble, granite chips, pebbles, or even shells for beachfront property, can be embedded into the surface for a more decorative look.

With all this warm weather we’ve been having, being outside is great. Having a patio for entertaining and barbecues can be great fun. Before you choose a wooden deck, why not consider concrete? Here are a few reasons why concrete is a great choice.
Less Maintenance: Concrete block paving requires far less maintenance than other paving materials. Concrete block paving’s strength and durability eliminates costly patching and surfacing.
Easily Reusable: Unlike asphalt, paving blocks can be removed for access to underground utilities and reinstalled after repairs are completed.
Cooler in Summer: Concrete block paving remains cooler than asphalt in summer making it the ideal choice for parks, patios, around swimming pools and pedestrian areas.
Easier to Install: The installation of concrete paving blocks requires neither the specialized equipment nor the intensive skilled labor of asphalt. Block paving does not require favorable weather and temperature for successful installation, avoiding costly construction delays.
Major Cost Savings: The initially higher cost concrete block paving is recouped many times over through longer product life, reduced maintenance, repair, sealing and stripping costs, making concrete block paving an economical choice for your next paving job.
