How to Beat Concrete Cancer

Hello, my name is Tony and this is my concrete installation and maintenance blog. I am not a professional concrete contractor but I am very passionate about DIY. My dad was a contractor and when I was growing up he taught me all kinds of neat tips and tricks. Once time, he took me out into the yard and made me inspect the concrete wall. The concrete was crumbling away, exposing the metal bars beneath. My father explained that this was concrete cancer and then demonstrated how to repair the damage. I hope you find my blog useful and entertaining.

Benefits of Decorative Concrete on a Residential Property

If you're considering what paving to use around your yard, on the driveway or patio, why not consider decorative concrete? Here are several benefits. Diverse Looks Decorative concrete can be customised to harmonise with virtually any environment. For instance, you could install stamped concrete. To create this, after the concrete is poured, contractors place stamping moulds on the cement to give it texture. You can choose from numerous stamping mats. For example, you could create the impression of bluestone cobbles on the driveway if you have a heritage house.

Is Your Asphalt Driveway Cracked? Why Asphalt Sealing Is the Best Solution

Asphalt is perhaps the most widely used material in paving driveways, parking lots and other areas in a building's outdoor space. When properly installed and sealed, your asphalt pavement can last for decades with minimal repairs.  However, the pavement will not last forever. It will age and begin to crack at one point in time. When that happens, you will need to repair or resurface it. One of the best ways to minimise damage on your asphalt surface is through professional asphalt sealing.

Benefits of a Concrete Driveway

You might plan to rejuvenate your home's driveway with concrete and be curious about the benefits you can expect. To discover several, consider the following points. Design Options The design options for a concrete drive are virtually open-ended. Concrete can be coloured in numerous ways, with pigments added to the cement mix before it's poured. Alternatively, contractors can add stains or dry-shake hardeners on top to produce a blend of various tones.
