Concrete & Rural Driveways

There are several popular choices for driveways: paving, gravel, asphalt, and concrete. While each of these options comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks, concrete is often considered to be the best option.

Here at Renshaw Civil Ltd., we offer general contracting services that include the construction of concrete driveways in Wellington.

Reasons Why you Should Get A Concrete Driveway:

  • Concrete is durable and long-lasting. It can withstand heavy vehicles, extreme weather conditions and regular wear and tear without showing any signs of damage.
  • Concrete driveways require very little maintenance compared to other driveway materials like asphalt, bricks or gravel. Regular cleaning and sealing are all that’s needed to keep them in good condition.
  • Concrete can be stamped, stained or coloured to match the style of your home. It’s a great choice if you want to customise the way your driveway looks.
  • A well-maintained concrete driveway can boost the curbside appeal of your home. It has a neat and refined aesthetic to it, which can help increase the value of the property.
  • Concrete driveways tend to offer better traction than other materials, reducing the risk of accidents or slips. They are also less likely to produce loose stones or debris that can cause damage to property or injury.

The Process

If you’re keen on having a concrete driveway installed, then this is what the process entails:

  1. Site Prep: This includes clearing and grading the site where the driveway will be situated.
  2. Formwork: Wooden frames are laid out to define the shape and size of the driveway as designed.
  3. Reinforcement: To increase the driveway’s strength and durability, we install steel wire frames within the formwork.
  4. Pouring: The pouring of the concrete is done carefully and spread out evenly and smoothly.
  5. Finishing: The surface of the concrete is smoothed out and levelled carefully.
  6. Curing: The concrete is left for a few days to set and harden fully.
  7. Sealing: A sealant is applied at the the very end to protect the driveway against weathering.
