But have you ever thought about what makes concrete driveways so awesome? They're very popular, and it's easy to see why.
You can style them however you want and if you're thinking about getting a new driveway, here are 3 reasons why concrete is a fantastic choice:

Durability


Concrete driveways can take a lot. Whether it's lots of cars driving over them or crazy weather, they don't crack or break easily. They're perfect if you've got a busy driveway or live somewhere with tough winters.

Weatherproof


Concrete is really good at standing up to the elements. It doesn't rust, and things like road salt don't bother it. So, your driveway will keep looking great year after year, no matter the weather.

Low Maintenance


One of the coolest things about concrete driveways? They're so easy to take care of. Unlike asphalt, you don't have to seal them all the time. Just some simple sweeping and the occasional power wash, and you're good. And if you ever need to fix something, it's no big deal to get it sorted.

Concrete Driveways VS Other Driveways - Which is Best?



Trying to decide between a concrete driveway and other types like crushed rock or Tuscan toppings? It's a tough choice, right? Both have their ups and downs. Let's chat about what makes each one unique, so you can figure out which one's the best fit for your place.

Types of Concrete Driveways



Thinking about jazzing up your driveway with concrete? There's a bunch to think about.
Do you want it smooth or with a bit of texture? Smooth is easy to clean but can get slippery in the rain. Textured ones have better grip but need more cleaning. Also, consider your weather – if it's snowy and icy, you'll want something that can handle that. And don't forget about matching your home's style.
Want something shiny? Go glossy. Prefer low-key? Matte's your friend. It's all about what you like and what works for your place.
We want to help you pick the best choice for your driveway so here’s a list you can look into and think about before anything:

Aggregate Concrete Driveway

This one's a tough cookie, mixing concrete with stuff like gravel or sand. It's VERY strong, lasts ages, and isn't too fussy to clean. Plus, it's not slippery, so it's great if you've got kids or pets running around. You can even pick different colours and textures to make it your own.

Colored Concrete Driveway

Want to make your driveway pop? Go for colour! Just think about how it'll blend with your house and yard. Remember, some colours might fade or get stains. And yeah, they can be pricier, so shop around before deciding.

Modern Stamped Concrete Driveway

A showstopper through and through! It's like regular concrete but stamped to look like stone or brick. It’s durable and really ups your curb appeal. Take care of it, and it'll take care of your home's look for years.

Plain Concrete Driveway

Nothing wrong with plain ones. In fact, if you're after something simple and sturdy, plain concrete is your go-to. It's a solid choice for handling cars and doesn't need much fuss. Plus, you can always spice it up with some staining or stamping if you change your mind later.

Glow in the Dark Stone Driveway

Talk about cool! This driveway lights up at night. It's made with special materials that glow after soaking up light. It's not just safe and easy to see, but also a total hit with guests so it’s something to think about. Imagine showing off your glowing path at night!

Something to Spruce Up Your Concrete Driveway

Why Concrete Driveways Might Crack



So, you've got a concrete driveway because they're tough and don't need much upkeep, right? But sometimes, they can get cracks. Here's why: One big reason is too much water under the driveway.

If it's really wet down there, the concrete might move around and crack. Also, if the ground shifts because of things like tree roots or changes in underground water, that can cause cracks too.

And then there's reactive soil – a type of soil that changes size when it gets wet. If your driveway doesn't have enough steel reinforcement, these soil changes can lead to cracks. Even though concrete driveways are usually super durable, it's good to know about these things that can cause trouble.

How to Keep Your Concrete Driveway from Cracking



Cracks in concrete can be a bummer, but there are ways to stop them or at least make them less of a problem. First off, try not to pour concrete when it's really hot out. If it dries too fast in the heat, it's more likely to crack.

If you're in a place with big temperature swings, do your concrete work in the morning or evening when it's cooler. Also, picking the right steel reinforcement is key. Welded wire mesh usually works great, but sometimes rebar is the way to go.

And here's a pro tip for the cracks: use an alcoholic spray to keep the concrete moist while it dries. Follow these pointers, and you're on your way to having a crack-free driveway for a long time.
