We Install, Repair, and Replace Concrete Driveways

Concrete Driveways are common in Atlanta.  Concrete is a durable material, but when concrete driveways are installed incorrectly, as most are, then you are bound to have issues with concrete cracking, dusting, spalding, heaving, etc.  As the premier concrete contractor in Atlanta, BOSS Construction LLC is able to fix whatever driveway repair issue you have. 

 

Common Concrete Driveway Issues:

  • Cracking concrete due to tree root stress;
  • Cracked concrete due to erosion or settlement;
  • Sinking concrete caused by underground trash pit;
  • Concrete driveway cracked under excessive loads;
  • Low or weak PSI strength of concrete mix;
  • Excessive water added to concrete mix during installation;
  • Insufficient concrete thickness;
  • Insufficient control joints or expansion joints in concrete;
  • Insufficient reinforcement added to concrete driveway mix.

 

But don't worry, because even cracked concrete driveways can be fixed.  So how is concrete 'fixed'?  Most situations require that we remove and replace the affected concrete area. Sometimes it is preferable to fix just the concrete sections that require replacement. How big of an area should be replaced?  It depends on your situation.  Let us take a look.  It is important to note that most concrete cracking cannot be fixed properly by resurfacing.

Under some circumstances, it may be best to replace the entire concrete driveway.  Whole driveway replacement may be the best option if you are experiencing widespread cracking due to improper concrete thickness, low initial concrete strength, or when too much water was added during driveway installation.  It wouldn't hurt to ask us for an estimate; its free!

Every concrete driveway needs a few things:

  • A properly compacted sub-grade;
  • A strong concrete mix of 3000 PSI or greater;
  • A minimum concrete thickness of 3 1/2"-4";
  • Properly installed control and expansion joints;
  • And a Concrete Contractor who knows how to pour concrete.


Does every concrete driveway need reinforcement?  No.  Our temperate climate and clay soils can provide enough stability for concrete driveways and any outdoor concrete work.  That doesn't mean that you never need reinforcement.  It depends on your situation.  Be careful with any concrete contractor that tells you that you have to have reinforcement in every situation.  He may just be spending your money.
