Concrete is one of the most versatile building materials used in the United States today. Homeowners and commercial building owners rely on concrete because it is trustworthy.
Concrete is commonly used in driveways, parking lots, and access points for garages. It is becoming more common for homeowners and business owners to request concrete driveway installations in Bellingham, WA.
One reason for the surge in popularity is because concrete driveways are good for the environment. Concrete covers up where grass and plant life would grow. However, if the alternative is asphalt, concrete wins by a landslide. One reason is because it takes a lot less energy to do concrete driveway installations in Bellingham, WA, than it would to do the same installation using asphalt.
It is common for concrete contractors to use concrete that has been recycled from demolished buildings and driveways when creating new driveways. Many customers specifically ask their concrete contractor to use recycled concrete because of its environmental benefits.
Concrete driveways are easy to maintain. Concrete can withstand the fluctuations in temperatures brought about by the summer and winter months. They are not affected by pests. The one thing that can damage concrete is strong plant roofs. However, as long as a homeowner regularly maintains their concrete and does what is necessary to prevent tree roots from damaging it, they should not experience any problems with the concrete surface.
