Driveway Installation Process
Before installing the new driveway, our crew will visit the site for a survey and then help you apply for the necessary permits. Only after the project has been approved is when the actual installation work will begin.
The first step in the installation of a new driveway is demolition. In this step, the old driveway will be used to pave way for the construction of the new one. Our crew will first determine if any utility lines are passing underneath the old driveway before commencing demolition. The demolition work will be done using sledgehammers or jackhammers, depending on the size of the project.
Driveway Frame and Form
Our crew will install frames, also known as concrete forms, along the borders of the area where the driveway will be using wooden stakes as braces. They will do this after the area has been prepared and unwanted material removed. We will pour a sand base and install rebar for reinforcement afterward.
Before pouring concrete or laying asphalt, driveway grading must be done. We do this to ensure that water shades and drains properly from the ground, and that the sub-grade is stable to ensure the driveway is built on a solid foundation. Doing this is important as it helps prevent water from flooding the driveway or the driveway cracking due to a weak foundation.
When all is set, we commence pouring concrete. We do this using state-of-the-art equipment. The process involves pouring the concrete fairly quickly and uniformly to avoid sections from setting before the rest, something that could cause cracks when it finally cures.
To ensure that the final product is perfect in appearance, we use a saw-cutting machine to cut off the edges and other irregular sections.
Driveways made of concrete are designed to last for a very long time. However, due to some factors, its lifespan is shortened and features such as scaling, settlement, discoloration, and cracking start to appear.
These features are usually caused by bad placement procedures, exposure to severe weather conditions, the use of an inadequate concrete mix, and an improperly compacted subgrade. Ripping and installing a new driveway might be the solution. However, this is costly. You can simply opt for repairs, especially if the structural integrity of the driveway is sound.
