We use them everyday, and yet we often don’t think about the importance of walkways. Whether leading up to your house, going around the side of your house, or trailing through your backyard, walkways connect you and make your property accessible. But walkways are also so much more than just a way to get from one place to another – they are a way to add style and value to the appearance of your home. Our professionals will work with you to develop the walkway of your dreams, and then carry out the execution.
When it comes to creating your walkway, choosing the style is often the most important aspect. Yes, you want it to be durable and easy to care for, but you also want it to compliment your house and yard. Stamped concrete is a type of concrete that has been stamped with three-dimensional patterns. This can be done with regular or colored concrete, and results in a unique and aesthetically pleasing walkway. Stamped concrete can be pricey, which is why we’ve worked hard to give you the absolute best deal we can offer.
Exposed Aggregate involves removing a thin layer on the top of the concrete during the setting stages, so that the stones that lay beneath can be seen. Not only is the texture and color of this form becoming increasingly popular, but exposed aggregate also offers a number of benefits compared to regular concrete walkways. For one thing, the stones provide a durable, non-slip surface, which is especially beneficial during snow and rain seasons and can prevent nasty falls. This form of concrete is also extra durable, making it resistant to heavy foot traffic and harsh weather conditions.
Brushed finish is created by dragging a brush over the surface of the fresh concrete after it has been leveled off. This provides texture and also hides any imperfections that could be clearly seen with regular concrete options. This option is perfect if you’re looking for something a step above plain concrete, but wish to stick to a more classical style. Brushed finish is clean-looking, while also providing a similar non-slip, durable surface as exposed aggregate. Brushed concrete can be colored to add style to your yard and make your walkway stand out. It also increases the property value of your house.
Interlocking concrete walkways are made using interlocking pavers, which connect through the use of sand. They mimic the appearance of cobblestone, and are highly sought for their beautiful, rustic and unique appearance. Interlocking pavers come in a wide variety of colors, textures and shapes and provide a non-slip, durable foundation for a walkway. The spaces between the pavers allow water to drain safely and create a seal that protects the concrete from shifting or becoming damaged. Interlocking concrete is one of the strongest forms of concrete, suitable for withstanding heavy amounts of foot traffic. This makes it a perfect option for your home’s walkway.
