Wilmington Concrete Service
Concrete Driveway Replacement Wilmington NC
While minor concrete driveway cracks and surface damage can be repaired or resurfaced respectively, replacing an existing driveway is a whole other matter. Concrete driveways are expected to last upwards of twenty or more years but inevitably they will become damaged enough (or grimy enough) to the point of needing to be replaced.
Luckily, Wilmington Concrete Contractors can handle all of your driveway replacement needs whether they be residential, decorative, or commercial in nature. Since Wilmington, North Carolina requires a permit for any sort of major construction such as this, you’re always better off going with an expert than attempting to do it yourself.
What is Involved in a Residential Driveway Replacement?
Before we answer that question, does your driveway…
- Have potholes?
- Drainage issues?
- Deep spiderweb cracks along its surface?
- Have to be spot repaired often but still has issues?
If so, then it’s a great candidate for a residential driveway replacement. While concrete driveways have a super long lifespan as mentioned before, when you start seeing issues like those described above, there are more serious issues occurring underground. It’s best to seek replacement as soon as possible as the longer you wait, the worse it will become.
That said, what all is involved?
Well to start, Wilmington Concrete Contractors will need to first break up all the broken, hole-ridden, or otherwise useless concrete and pour a brand new one. Oftentimes, this will also involve a structural analysis to see if any of the rebar underneath needs to be adjusted before pouring the new concrete. After it dries, you’ll have a brand spanking new, long-lasting, concrete driveway.
How We Handle Decorative Concrete Driveway Replacement
Let us just say that we LOVE decorative concrete. Stained, stamped, or otherwise, we not only specialize in installing these works of art for the first time but we also know how to replace them!
Similar to the more plain concrete driveway replacement, the process is still to break ground, confirm the structure is sound, then lay the concrete as before. However, to ensure your driveway looks the same as it did before, we’ll go a step further to match what is already in place so your driveway will look just like it did when you purchased your home.
If you’re looking to change things up, however, say come up with and add a family crest to your driveway, this can also be done for you at the time of replacement. It may cause the job to become bigger but if you currently have a plain concrete driveway installed, it can be resealed, reglossed, or just embedded into the existing pavement. If you’re looking for something super special, please feel free to ask!
Commercial Driveway Replacement
Businesses, large or small, in the Wilmington, NC area will often need to consider driveway replacement in high foot or vehicle traffic areas. Unlike homes where relatives visit, your clientele will take notice of any imperfections in the grounds you keep. As such, you’ll want an expert in the field who can handle:
- Tear out and replacement
- Concrete cutting
- Cement laying
- Staining and stamping
- Haul away
No need to look any further as we can handle all of that right here. As with residential driveway services, we will ensure you have all the proper permits, dimensions, and time you need to make the replacement process a breeze.
