Cracked Cement: Before and After
We quite often get calls asking if there is anything we can do to help make a stained, cracked driveway look better. We recently completed a project in Scottsdale where there were very large cracks running through the driveway. As you can see in the photo below, there were multiple large cracks running through the concrete. This home is a very beautiful, traditional style home and the quality of the driveway did not match the beautiful exterior of the home.
Working closely with the homeowner, it was decided to create a custom stamped concrete overlay with a triple brick border. This accomplished tying together the brick in their home along with the planters and the custom stamped overlay on the driveway. First, we carefully repaired all of the cracks to ensure a smooth finish. Then, we applied a specifically mixed product, our cement mixture stamped with a granite texture. The following day, with the homeowner’s approval, we drew out the brick border and cut each individual brick by hand with a diamond blade. On the third day, again with the homeowner’s on-site approval, we applied three different colors that complimented the exterior of their home.
As you can see from the pictures, there is a dramatic difference between the before and after pictures. Their home now looks complete. The driveway is no longer an eyesore, but a beautiful extension of their home, which also increases the value of their home. We have received many calls from neighbors and people driving by this home who have called us because they really liked how this project turned out and now want us to coat their concrete!
