What to Consider When Installing Imprinted Concrete Driveways
Imprinted concrete driveways are an extremely popular choice for driveways up and down the country as more and more homeowners are seeing the benefit of the product. Imprinted concrete driveways are incredibly aesthetically pleasing but also are very hardwearing and durable. When you’re having your new imprinted concrete driveway, there are a few things to consider and that you should pay close attention to.

What Are The Main Benefits Of A New Driveway? The Quality of The Print

You need to ensure that the quality of your print is up to standard. Because fresh concrete is being used rather than concrete block paving or stone cobbles, you have a few variables to consider. Warm weather can cause the concrete to set prematurely which means you won’t be able to get a high quality, detailed print. Having enough printing mats and being able to work quickly is also essential to ensure the quality of print.

What Are The Main Benefits Of A New Driveway? Ensuring Durability

Imprinted concrete driveways should stand the test of time, but only if it’s installed correctly from the outset. The mix of concrete, your sub-base, thickness and compaction all come into play and can be the difference between your driveway being able to cope with regular foot and vehicle traffic, or not.

What Are The Main Benefits Of A New Driveway? Keeping the Colour Consistent

Everyone wants their driveway to look great and a massive part of having an attractive looking driveway is ensuring the colour is kept consistent throughout. To do so you’ll need adequate colour surface hardener and release agent. Obviously for a larger surface area you need to increase the percentage of colour surface hardener that you use. Here at Premier Surfacing, we install imprinted concrete driveways that not only look amazing and match the aesthetics of your home, but also stand the test of time.
