This snappy section will address the questions we receive from clients on a regular basis. These Q’s include:
Do I need to apply sealant to my driveway?
Sealant will help protect your investment against seasonal extremes and freezing conditions. A good sealant will act as a safe guard against moisture and stains.
What if cracks appear?
If the job was executed properly, cracks should rarely appear. A knowledgeable groundworker will apply joints to the drive allowing your concrete to breathe, expand and contract.
In a suitably jointed driveway cracks are rare. However, if they do appear you should discuss this with your company of choice and ensure measures are in place to correct any blemishes that appear.
