If you’re thinking about repairing your driveway, understanding the types of repairs needed is crucial. Take a close look at your concrete driveway for issues like spelling, cracking, or heaving. This initial inspection is the first step.
In some cases, a driveway may be so deteriorated that replacement is the only option. After inspection, if replacement is needed, consider any additional improvements, as larger projects often come with lower costs due to concrete delivery expenses.
An economical option is resurfacing, where a new concrete surface is applied on top of the existing one. This revives the look without the cost of a new driveway.
For minor damages and a few cracks, crack chasing is a suitable option. This method addresses cracks without major surface deterioration.
Sealing and Waterproofing
Prevent further damage by sealing and waterproofing your driveway. This protects against water penetration, preventing large voids under the driveway that could lead to more damage.
Concrete Driveway Rejuvenation
A simple rejuvenation involves power washing with muriatic wash to remove stains and revitalize the appearance. While it won’t bring the driveway back to its original condition, it makes a noticeable difference.
Concrete Driveway Replacement
If necessary, removing and replacing the entire driveway might be the best choice. Check our page on concrete driveway costs for guidance, and consider a personal estimate for accurate pricing.
Mudjacking or Concrete Lifting
Concrete lifting can address sinking driveways, but it may not always fully fix the issue and can be costly. Cesar’s Concrete. doesn’t offer this service, as our experts believe fixing the base pour is more effective in cases of a dropped driveway due to improper installation.
