Benefits of Concrete & Stone Driveways

A paved driveway is not only aesthetically pleasing, but paved driveways makes a better surface for parking your vehicles. A paved driveway is much easier to clean than would be packed dirt or gravel, and they keep us from us dragging dirt inside our homes from the outside.

Driveway paving materials are either solid, aggregate and pavers. One popular type of solid paved driveways is a poured concrete driveway. Aggregate driveways are designed by compressed gravel and crushed rock or stone. Driveways composed of pavers can be designed by using cobblestone, formed concrete or brick.

A proper foundation prior to installing the surface is very important. Concrete and even crushed stone driveways will benefit from having a 3-to-6-inch base of packed gravel in place prior to laying the finishing material on top. Cobblestone and other paver-type materials should have a level sand base to provide an even, level surface.

The driveway can be dyed, texture added to add to the total cube appeal of your home. The driveway is usually an invitation, the path to your welcoming home.
