Concrete Driveway Repair

Residential concrete driveways are a common feature of any modern home as they are practical and durable.

After some time, however, a well-loved concrete driveway can result in some discolouration, cracking and scaling. This is often the result of improperly compacted sub-grade, low quality of original product, and bad placement procedures and weather conditions.

There are a number of options to repair and restore your concrete driveway back to its original condition (or better) including concrete engraving, concrete resurfacing and recolouring.

Concrete Engraving

A common option for a concrete driveway repair if discolouration or cracking is evident is employing concrete engraving.  Concrete engraving is a decorative concrete resurfacing option which involves a pattern being engraved or etched onto your existing concrete driveway to disguise concrete flaws completely.

Speak to the team at McGinn Concrete today for more information.

Concrete Resurfacing

If your driveway is cracking, faded, peeling or showing some imperfections, then concrete resurfacing is often recommended. The options are plentiful when it comes to resurfacing including;

  • Plain concrete
  • Plain concrete with a colour added to the concrete mix
  • Textures and patterns
  • Finishing styles such as brushing and sweeping

Concrete Re-colouring

Despite most colour hardeners being water resistant and long lasting, coloured driveways require a refresh from time to time to ensure they keep their colour and not fade too much.

If your driveway needs a colour lift, the team at McGinn Concrete can assist
