Pattern imprinted concrete comes in a massive array of colours and patterns to make each seperate driveway totally unique. The finished surface is 25% stronger than traditional concrete and virtually maintenance-free. The surface is sealed to repel dirt, stains, plant growth, moss and algae.
The driveway is laid on a substantial sub-base to eliminate cracks, sagging and susidance. There are hidden expansion joints to allow the finished concrete to move freely in the extremes of hot and cold. The driveways are truly built to last a lifetime and whenever they are resealed they immediately take on that 'just laid' appearance.
Essex driveways are laid in five distinct phases.
First the survey levels are checked to ensure the falls are right and any water will run away from the house! If not deco drain or aco drain must be installed to preserve the property from damp.
There is the excavation of the area for the new surface and the laying of the sub-base. This is of identical material used in the construction of roads and motorways. The drainage is installed and new manholes are set.
The concrete is poured, levelled and coloured. A secondry colour covers the area for two reasons. The first is aesthetic; the other is to protect the print. As the pattern imprint is set when wet, so the release preserves the print when the mats are lifted and the unique pattern is perfectly maintained.
Expansion joints are installed on a return visit and final fixes and snagging are carried out.
Finally the driveway is sealed and cleaned. This gives a lasting finish and completes the trasformation of your property.
The colour and pattern of the driveway is permanent and this can be cleaned and resealed at any time to give that 'just laid' appearance.
