Concrete Driveways

Durability

It’s hard to beat the durability of this product, although proper preparation is required to produce a surface that can endure a variable climate. A good base is essential for maximum durability and crack prevention. Bortolo and Sons – servicing the whole Lower Mainland including Vancouver and Burnaby – has extensive experience as a residential concrete contractor in designing concrete driveways that are built to last. Remember that when it comes to paving, it’s what’s underneath that counts!

Cracking is more of a problem in the northern climates because frost is always inevitable. Frosts heaves are one of the major causes of surface cracks in all driveway products. Once again, a stable base makes all the difference. Accommodations can be made for areas subject to heaving, but if the area is very problematic, then using an alternative such as asphalt may make more sense for that application. As your trusted professional concrete paving contractor, we can identify any potential problems and discuss your options for a solution with you prior to starting your project.

All concrete installations need joint expansions which control where the cracking will take place. Re-bar or wire mesh is also helpful to increase it’s strength and decrease the chances of cracking.

Colour, Patterns, Textures

While plain concrete is still the most popular and cost effective option for your concrete driveway, a variety and different colours, patterns, textures and faux finishes can be created. Concrete has become a very versatile product that can be finished in any number of ways. From highly polished (slippery when wet) to stamped, coloured and textured, even topped with slate or any combination of those you may choose. Speak to your concrete professional at Bortolo and Son’s Paving to discuss your options and pricing in these areas. Check out our Custom Colours, Patterns & Textures page for more information. Not every paving contractor has the experience to integrate these options. This is where our years of experience come into play.

One downside to choosing concrete for your driveway, is that concrete can stain more easily and is more difficult to keep clean due to its lighter colour. Sealants will help prevent stains as well as extend the life of your new concrete driveway. We recommend a thorough cleaning and to reseal your driveway every two years for the best results.
