Do you offer free quotes for concrete driveway installation?
Yes we do. We also provide a 24 hour turn around from Initial on site meeting with you to receive your quotation.
When can you start?
Once the quote is accepted, we can start within a couple of weeks.
How long will it take to complete my job?
Every job is different. Typically by the time all of the stages are complete, the works will take around two to three weeks. Visit our Services page for our step-by-step process.
What if the driveway cracks?
We are experienced in ensuring that if and when your concrete cracks due to movement and to relieve stress, we have ensured we have done everything we could do with precise concrete cutting to control the cracks. Sometimes concrete cracks before we can do the expansion cuts, this can occur due to weather, humidity, wind and/or drying times on site. Further advice can be given at the time of our initial visit.
Does my concrete need to have cuts in it?
Definitely. The cuts in the concrete helps induce a crack in the concrete along the cut. We cover this in great depth at our Pre-Start Meeting.
Should we have Reinforcing in our concrete?
We absolutely recommend it and include it in our pricing. Although steel mesh does not necessarily prevent cracking in concrete, it does help hold it together. Also, if cracks do develop, they will stay far finer than would otherwise if there no steel mesh.
How long before I can drive on my new driveway?
We recommended new concrete driveways must be left for 7 days minimum once the concrete has been laid. New Asphalt driveways must be left for 2 days minimum.
What other services can you provide?
We are lucky to have qualified builders on our team, which gives us the opportunity to provide our customers with other services, including timber decking and timber fencing to finish off your project.
Will my driveway need a sump or strip drain?
This will be discussed on on initial site visit, it depends on the size of your driveway, the slope of your section and your landscape design. We are able to provide drainage service.
