What are the advantages of a concrete driveway?

April 25, 2016

Using concrete for the driveway is a popular choice, providing a long lasting base for cars to be parked without ruining the aesthetics of the house. However, what is it exactly that sets concrete driveways apart from those using other materials?

We’ve listed some of the biggest benefits to having a concrete driveway below.


Concrete Driveway


For a driveway that can withstand constant use, and bear the weight of heavy cars, using concrete is the ideal solution. Concrete is one of the most functional materials available, providing a long-lasting and strong option that can withstand daily use for generations before showing any real signs of wear.

Low maintenance

A concrete driveway will often require little more than being swept to keep it free of dust and debris, and the occasional wash with warm water and soap for stains and marks. What’s more, the low maintenance properties of driveways mean that it will stay looking great year round, with minimal attention required to keep its look.

Kerb appeal

Concrete’s clean, polished looking finish can significantly contribute to your home’s kerb appeal. With a wide range of colours and finishes available, concrete no longer needs to be a grey drab addition to your home, and can instead contribute a unique look to your house’s exterior.

Low cost

Concrete remains a fairly budget friendly option compared to other driveway materials, so it’s an ideal choice if you don’t want to spend a lot on the upfront cost. What’s more, concrete’s low maintenance needs mean that repairs and upkeep requirements are minimal, allowing you to make considerable savings over time.

Temperature control

Ideal for warmer climates, concrete’s lighter colour ensures that it stays cool even in the glare of the sun – helping to reduce the overall temperature outside your home and on your feet when outside.

Looks great

Most importantly, a concrete driveway not only provides a functional solution for your property, it can also look great, too. With a wide range of colours, finishes, and textures able to be created with concrete, the material can be designed to suit buildings of all styles and structures.
