Are Concrete Driveways Worth it?

Concrete driveways provide many benefits, such as low-maintenance, strength, and longevity. Concrete driveways are more expensive than gravel and asphalt but they are effective at guiding rainwater in the desired location which can prevent flooding and deterioration of the driveway. Concrete driveways are more durable and prevent cracks and weather damage that can be caused by harsh Michigan winters and storms. Value-wise, concrete driveways are one of the best options. Brick or cobblestone driveways are a good option and provide a look that many people are looking for, but concrete driveways typically last longer and are cheaper. 

Are Concrete Driveways Secure?

New concrete driveway bases are compacted several times to ensure security. Concrete driveways are poured with a “6 bag mix” or higher. This mix is used in Michigan to withstand harsh weather conditions and offer reinforcement to the driveway. Concrete companies will offer additional reinforcements for new concrete driveways to improve durability and further prevent cracks. Options like fiber mesh and the more traditional wire mesh are common reinforcement options.
