Frequently Asked Questions

These are some frequently asked questions from our customers. If you would like to ask something more specific, please give us a call on 01633 530 144 or use our contact form.

Q: Can the concrete be laid all year round?

A: The concrete can be laid all year round although the process may take longer in the winter when it is colder.

Q: How long does the sealant last?

A: Depending on wear and tear, the sealant will usually last 3-8 years. Gradually the sealant will become dull and whilst not necessary, a new coat will make it appear new again.

Q: Will the concrete fade or crack?

A: The colours do not fade but should they appear to look dull, resealing the concrete will brighten up the colours again. The specifications we use minimise cracking but if a crack does develop, it will almost always remain barely visible.

Q: Why are crack control joints required?

A: Crack control joints are recommended by British Standards and are cut in at regular intervals. They are cut to a depth of 25% of the slab. If a crack should occur, it would follow the direction of the weakened points so that the crack never becomes visible, and the crack control joint itself is filled with mastic.

Q: How long must I wait before using a new driveway?

A: It is recommended to wait 24-48 hours for pedestrian traffic, 6 days before you drive a car on it and 48 days for heavy goods vehicles.

Q: Is it a messy job?

A: The process can create dust particularly when windy but any dust will be washed away before we leave.
