Locally-Owned Concrete Pavement Services
Spartan Paving & Concrete paving services include concrete installation for a variety of home and business owners’ projects Our service area for concrete installation is the Upstate, including Spartanburg and Greenville counties and their surrounding areas. Concrete costs more than asphalt but in addition to strength and being relatively maintenance free, concrete has a longer lifespan than asphalt. Properly installed, concrete can last in good condition 30+ years. Our concrete services are turn-key from site preparation to concrete finishing. Concrete is a popular choice for driveways, patios, pads, pool decking, garages, carports, storage buildings, and the occasional basketball court. We even offer excavation, which enables us to remove broken portions of a driveway, patio, or walkway without completely redoing the project.
The Advantages of Choosing Concrete Paving
At Spartan Paving & Concrete, we utilize our extensive experience to deliver quality customer service in our concrete installation projects. Concrete possesses special advantages:
Concrete Lasts Longer
While concrete has a higher up-front cost than asphalt, due to its strength and durability, it is relatively maintenance free. As compared to asphalt, though oil and spills will stain concrete, concrete does not deteriorate from spills as asphalt does a cost-effective benefit over time. Concrete also lasts up to 60 percent longer than asphalt which again, is a cost benefit of concrete to consider, particularly if you are building your “forever” home.
Concrete and Curb Appeal
To some home or business, asphalt’s jet-black appearance isn’t as attractive as concrete’s light gray coloring. But, as a rule, some of the choice between asphalt and concrete has to do with personal preference and how well concrete or asphalt fits in with the surrounding landscape Curb appeal is important, and both concrete and asphalt concrete can provide that. Additionally, concrete can be stamped and even integrally colored/stained.
Concrete Absorbs Less Heat
Ever tried to walk barefoot on asphalt on a hot summer day? You can’t; that’s because asphalt absorbs tremendous amounts of UV radiation and holds that heat long after the sun has gone done. Concrete reflects more UV rays, which makes it a cooler surface to walk on.
Concrete – Strong and Durable
Because concrete is rigid when fully dried, control joints are cut at regular intervals to allow for sub-base conditions and weather fluctuations. If you drive a heavy truck or own RV equipment, concrete may serve your purposes better than asphalt but the thickness of both concrete and asphalt can be increased to accommodate heavy loads or traffic.
Concrete and Maintenance
Whether you’re paving a walkway, driveway, or patio, concrete is an excellent choice because it doesn’t require the regular maintenance that asphalt does to stay in good condition. Cracks can appear in concrete, largely due to weather-related ground conditions or excessive loads traveling on concrete. Generally, the repair for cracked concrete is to saw cut, remove and repour the cracked section. Superficial, cosmetic-only cracks do not affect the durability of concrete. Large, pervasive cracks may require excavation and repouring of damaged sections of concrete.
Concrete is Environmentally-Friendly
Concrete requires less energy to produce and install than asphalt, making it an environmentally-friendly option and does not emit any harmful greenhouse gases. While asphalt is renewable, it benefits from regular sealcoating – which involves the use of more petroleum products.
Homebuyers and Concrete Driveways
Whether you intend to move now or someday in the future, resale value is essential. When potential buyers visit your house, the driveway is one of the first things they see. A concrete driveway, patio, or walkway can create a positive first impression and potentially increase resale value.
