Concrete Driveway Specialists

Aurora Concrete will send out a trained concrete specialist, review your needs and conduct a professional site evaluation. A proposal will be drawn up and submitted promptly. Upon acceptance of our proposal, Aurora Concrete will remove your existing driveway or area to be prepared and haul it to an authorized dumping location. Aurora Concrete then will re-establish 4-6 inches of compacted base material. We then frame the area to have concrete and set up rebar throughout the entire framed area. The concrete is then poured 4 inches thick followed by a cure & seal application. Lastly, the expansion cuts are made.

Life expectancy of new concrete can be well over 20 years. Aurora Concrete warranty for all concrete work is 3 years & excludes any cracking that might occur, petroleum staining and normal wear and tear.

Concrete is considered to be the longest lasting and most durable material for driveways. Although asphalt is usually less expensive, it requires more maintenance and it’s lifespan is generally considered half of that of a concrete driveway. An asphalt driveway will also usually cost seventy five percent of a concrete driveway. A concrete driveway will also increase the value of your home more than an asphalt and give you much more curb appeal. Taking all this into consideration, concrete will give you the best return on your investment.

Concrete Driveway Contractors - Professional Installation

Concrete is only as good as the base underneath it. We start with a premium gravel base that is mechanically compacted. Forms are placed for the desired shape and size of your new driveway. Rebar reinforcement is then placed and tied for proper structural reinforcement. The concrete is then placed with the specified mix design from the ready mix supplier. We specify a super plasticizing admixture in all of our concrete driveways for higher strength and durability. The concrete mix will also have fiber reinforcement for secondary reinforcement to minimize cracking and improve impact resistance of the driveway. We double reinforce all of the concrete driveways we place for the longest lasting driveway, something most contractors don’t do. After the concrete is finished, we apply a final cure and seal. This properly cures your concrete so it achieves its mix design strength. These steps create the most durable, longest lasting driveway possible, generally giving you a lifetime of service.

The choice of concrete as the paving material for your driveway is one almost impossible to regret.

And twenty years from now while your concrete driveway still look barely a few years old, your neighbor on the other side of the street will be forced to endure the sickening smell of asphalt for the second time. When it comes to quality driveway installation, concrete and Aurora Concrete can’t be beat.
