Unique Cement’s concrete driveway replacement process.
Replacing your driveway is a simple four-part system we call the “Unique Transformation”. Unique Cement specializes in driveway replacement in Macomb and Oakland County, Michigan. We remove all old existing concrete and materials, then frame and install a new driveway reinforced with steel. Then we minimize the chance of the cement cracking by saw cutting. We use a 6 bag mix concrete and steel rebar for reinforcing the concrete to prevent settling, cracking, and the concrete from moving. With over 30 years of experience working with concrete, we can guarantee a well built driveway that will last.
Step 1: Tear out existing concrete driveway and prep the work area.
The first stage involves the preparation necessary to replace your driveway. We break up and tear out all the old cement, then frame out the area where you wish to have your new driveway installed. Careful laying of forms is necessary to make sure that the final product is even and clean-cut. We lay down crushed concrete, which is compacted to ensure a level surface to pour on, and steel rebar, which will provide an extra level of stability to the finished driveway. Once that’s all done, it’s time to pour.
Step 2: Pour concrete and finish it smooth, swirl pattern or broom finish.
Our trucks arrive at the job full up and ready to go. Concrete is evenly poured throughout the work area and then carefully smoothed to produce an attractive and functional flat surface. Once the whole form is filled, Unique’s trained crews use special techniques to broom or swirl a faint texture to the surface of the concrete, based on your preference. We can give it a smooth, brushed, or swirled appearance – check out our gallery to see more.
Step 3: Saw-cut and let cure.
To prevent cracking or shifting in the future, expansion joints are carefully saw-cut into the concrete. These joints are placed strategically to avoid disrupting the look of your concrete while allowing each slab the necessary flexibility to move slightly with weather changes. Proper saw cutting is extremely important to the durability of your new concrete creation, and Unique Cement uses specialty diamond-cut saw blades to produce clean, unobtrusive cuts at exactly the correct width. Once the concrete has set, it’s ready to go – you are now the proud owner of a brand-new Unique driveway! Give us a call today to schedule a free in-home estimate and set out on the journey to a brand new look for your home!
