    Fully Resealed Driveway

    Fully Resealed Driveway

    Although we had snow in the middle of March this year, it looks like winter has finally gone. Sometimes the weather can affect a driveway, but it is usually only superficial damage.

    If your driveway looks like it needs a facelift, there are a few things that could have caused it. The most common is what we call blooming, which is where moisture has gotten into the sealant. Don’t worry, the concrete underneath is fine and this is easily fixable. The picture above is a resealed driveway which previously had blooming, and as you can see it looks great! We did a blog on this last year which you can see here.

    Another common problem is where the sealant has worn away over time, making the driveway look old and shabby. Be aware that this means the concrete is not protected any more, and we would advise a full reseal in order to protect it from the elements. You can see examples of where maintenance is needed in this blog from last year.

    Your driveway may just have become dull over winter, with the colour not as vibrant as it once was. This is probably just an example of weathering on the seal, and shows that the sealant has been doing its job. A reseal would bring back the full colour of the concrete underneath, and make the driveway look as good as new.

    All-Weather Landscaping

    In March we braved the snowy Manchester weather to install this landscaped lawn in Bowdon. The area was first dug out using a micro-digger and a dumpy level was used to make sure the ground was flat. Topsoil was added before the strips of turf were carefully laid down to leave a beautiful large stretch of lawn.

    As you can see from the video (available on our Youtube channel and our Facebook page), we really do work in all types of weather conditions, so although we need nice weather to install pattern imprinted concrete, we can carry out lots other work like this landscaping job, building walls and decking, erecting fencing and security bollards, installing non-concrete driveways like Indian stone or block paving, or just preparing an area ready for concrete, until the weather gets better.

    Now that the weather is (finally) looking a bit nicer, we can start to plan our summer schedule, and we will be installing lots of pattern imprinted concrete driveways and patios throughout.
