How We Can Help
G&G Concrete & Construction provides critical concrete driveway repair services. Our focus is to provide repairs before cracks compromise the driveway’s foundation. We repair small cracks and gaps before these minor issues can propagate and become bigger problems. That’s why we’ve become such a mainstay for concrete repairs throughout Southeast Michigan.For larger gaps and cracks, our teams can perform resurfacing. This is where we apply a concrete coating or overlay that matches the existing concrete surface’s texture. For sinking problems, we can apply a foam mixture beneath the slab while using a slabjack to correct the uneven surface. If the driveway’s foundation is beyond repair, then we can remove and replace the entire driveway.
Expected Lifetime of a Concrete Driveway
Under ideal circumstances, a newly-paved driveway can last up to 40 years. However, several factors can not only shorten the concrete’s life but also lead to excessive gaps, cracks, spalling, chipping, or discoloration.
Common Causes of Damage
While continual maintenance (like sweeping and washing) can help extend the lifespan of your concrete driveway, you must also be on the lookout for signs of premature stress. Some of the most common causes of driveway damage are extreme weather temperatures and improper installations.
Extreme weather (freeze-thaw cycling) is a common cause of concrete cracks and gaps. Most of the problems are caused by the winter’s extreme cold and the driveway’s exposure to road salt. That road salt comes from cars and from consumers that use salt as a means of protecting themselves against slip-and-fall injuries.
Premature aging of the concrete can also occur if a concrete driveway contractor did not properly lay down and compact the subgrade. Using the wrong concrete mix, or not mixing the concrete properly, can also cause problems. Even the framing the contractor sets up before the concrete is laid down can cause problems, and is often largely to blame for thin concrete on the perimeter of the driveway breaking apart in chunks.
