Concrete driveways are large initial investment, it makes sense to maintain them to avoid costly repairs. One of the most cost-effective things you can do to keep your driveway looking great is to caulk all of the joints and any cracks that develop. Cracks, either by themselves or simply in the control joints allow water to erode the supporting soils under the slab. This erosion leads to cracking and/or settling. In addition plant growth, access for burrowing insects such as ants and other critters further creates problems.

A bigger and bigger part of our business has become preventative maintenance and this includes caulking many thousands of feet of cracks and joints every year.

When we are called out to do an estimate the estimator will present an offer to raise all of your settled concrete and he’s going to provide an estimate to seal up all of your cracks and joints. In addition we are going to be looking for evidence of voids under your concrete slabs. These voids often develop along foundation walls, at control joint junctions in your driveway and around vertical support walls such as around pools. We search for these voids because where voids are present cracked concrete or settled concrete is sure to follow. So in addition to providing an estimate to raise your slabs and caulk the joints we may propose to also protect your existing concrete that hasn’t yet settled, but likely will because of voids, in the future.

We present you with all of our best solutions and allow you to make the choice thats right for you.
