Different kinds of concretes for driveways

If you are looking to change the look of your driveway, it may be a challenge to decide what to do. Concrete is a great material to use for new driveways. It gives you a clean, modern look that can add a curb appeal to your home. However, there are a few different kinds of concrete looks to choose from. Here are some different kinds of concretes to use on your driveway, from Concrete Impressions Inc. in Calgary.

Stamped concrete

This kind of concrete is a type of concrete that gives the look of natural stones. Stamped concrete allows for a little more creative freedom and you will have plenty to choose from when it comes to design. It comes in many different colors, patterns, and styles, and can be arranged in numerous ways. The material can provide a rougher surface, allowing for more grip and traction. It’s long-lasting, durable, and weatherproof, making it a great choice for your driveway.

Stamped concrete and other decorative concrete styles are also a stunning choice for the back patio and walkways. Concrete Impressions Inc. can help you design a patio for your outdoor living space that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Plus, having this eye-catching concrete design on your property will help boost its value.

Exposed aggregate concrete

Exposed aggregate concrete is a type of concrete design where the top layer of concrete is removed. Once it’s removed, it reveals a pattern that looks like gravel or stones. This pattern is great for driveways because due to its texture, it has a great grip. It’s skid-resistant for those cold, icy climates. It can also be very decorative because you have more options when it comes to colours and textures.

Broom finish concrete

Broom finish concrete has a clean look and is typically what you see for driveway concrete in most neighbourhoods. Depending on what stage of the concrete installation that the broom finish is done, it can create a different effect. For example, if it’s done earlier on in the process, there is more traction seen on the driveway because the concrete is still freshly put down. If it’s done later in the process, the traction marks stand out less. No matter which stage of installation the broom finish is applied, it still allows for a fresh clean look that can add simplicity to your home.
