Since concrete has such a long lifespan compared to other flooring materials, it is important to provide regular maintenance. With proper care and ideal conditions, your driveway, floor, or other flatwork will last even longer.

Adding Epoxy for Longer Concrete Use

With almost 30 years of use, it might not seem necessary to use anything else with your concrete. Adding an epoxy coating will further protect your concrete, extending the lifespan of your flooring even more.

Concrete vs Asphalt Driveways

Concrete already has a long lifespan when used in driveways and parking lots. When compared to asphalt, concrete is the clear winner since it lasts longer. On average, concrete will last ten years longer than asphalt. While it is faster to install an asphalt driveway, the savings of a decade are hard to ignore.

Concrete is easier to maintain as well. Asphalt is more prone to developing pot holes and cracks while concrete is able to withstand more traffic. An asphalt driveway will be incredibly hot during summer months by absorbing sunlight while concrete will provide more even temperatures.However, the greatest advantage offer by concrete is its aesthetic appeal. If concrete is stained, the stain can be removed with the right cleaning. Decorative concrete uses different textures and colors to upgrade your home or business with a professional quality finish.
