Types of Driveway Materials
The availability of driveway materials and finishes to meet your design tastes is endless. There are many things you should consider when deciding what type of material or finish will work best for the lifespan that you expect out of a new, beautiful drive way.
Poured Concrete Driveways. Poured concrete driveways are a popular choice for many people because it is low-maintenance and lasts long without decaying. This driveway type can be poured to form patterns or sections, which allows the homeowner to decide how they want their new look while still being able to contract and expand with movement of the ground below.
Asphalt Paved Driveways. Asphalt paved driveways are a great alternative to gravel or dirt. They’re durable, provide plenty of room for parking your vehicle and come with upkeep costs that you need to consider before making the investment – but hey, it’s worth it! After all, asphalt paving has an average life expectancy of 30 years so there won’t be any worries about having to replace them again in another decade or two.
Stamped Concrete Driveways. Stamped concrete is perfect for creating the impression that a different type of material was used in construction, such as stone or brick. These materials can also be stamped into cement when it’s still setting so you know your driveway will last through whatever weather condition mother nature throws at us! It could even work on patios and inside floors too.
Interlocking Pavers. Interlocking pavers are usually made of cement or concrete and shaped so they can interlock with other pavers of the same type. This also makes them easier to install without the use of mortar. The interlocking design provides a great solution for those wanting an attractive, rugged pathway that requires little maintenance and is perfect for any outdoor space from gardens to driveways!
Exposed Aggregate. Exposed aggregate is one of the most popular driveway finishes, creating a non-slip sealed surface that can last for nearly 10 years with little or no maintenance. Offering a wide range of colors, sizes and shades, exposed aggregate creates an attractive home addition to any property.
