Durable Cement Driveway
A cement driveway is very strong and durable. It also requires very little maintenance which is a huge plus to homeowners. The strength and longevity makes it really good value for large areas of paving. Cement driveways are more expensive than gravel but less expensive than a driveway that is made from cobblestone or pavers. If you do not like the plain look of concrete, you can add color and make your cement driveway stamped to create a unique surface for a great curb appeal.
Cement Driveway Longevity
Generally speaking, a cement driveway will be functional for 25 to 50 years depending on how they were built, maintained and weather conditions. If you live in an area with harsh winters that could affect some cracks in the cement and can be fixed when needed. Most people see concrete driveways as maintenance free and while this is true for the most part, it is important to ensure a long life with proper cleaning with a hose. You may also add a sealer once a year. If you live in an area with snow then the best time to seal a driveway is in the fall to ensure the slab will handle the harsh weather.
