Kalan Paul, owner of LCI Concrete.
By, Macy Goodnight; Autumn is the perfect time to make updates to a home. The weather in Oklahoma is optimal for exterior updates, and with the quickly arriving holiday season, preparations can be made for optimal visual appearance to our abodes for entertaining. A driveway is the first impression of your home. How’s the condition of yours?
If your driveway is cracked, chipped, stained, or generally in need of renewal, LCI Concrete is your solution. Owner, Kalan Paul, has been in business helping homeowners in Tulsa and surrounding areas alleviate their driveway woes for over 14 years.
“The driveway really is the first impression, and a new one can on average update the look of a home by 20 years,” he said. LCI specializes in driveway concrete replacement for existing and new home builds, and his company has provided over 700 new driveways since 2005. Fully insured, Kalan and his employees have over 90 years of combined experience working with concrete, with full rebar installation. “Even if we don’t install your driveway, we always highly recommend the use of rebar in concrete,” Kalan said. “It will increase the life span by approximately 20 years.”
LCI Concrete can replace your old damaged driveway with a brand new one in only one day.
As Oklahoma weather is famous for its intensity, the average wear and tear on a driveway can be extreme. “Even how we care for our driveways because of weather can cause problems,” said Kalan. “Ice Melt is an enemy to concrete. It will take the top layer right off.” The right time for most people to consider driveway replacement can vary, but several factors are standard in making that determination. Aesthetically, the overall look of the driveway visually is the most significant factor. Oil and other car fluid stains, or peeling and cracks can make the driveway look very unsightly, and can also be a progressive issue that will only get worse over time. Functionality is a priority, as physical hazards such as holes or cracks can wreak havoc on a vehicle and its wheels and tires. Legal concerns may be considered, as any accident that takes places on your property as a result of hazardous driveway conditions can be a nightmare.
With the weather in mind, Kalan says that now is the time to schedule driveway replacement. “We stop pouring when it starts consistently freezing,” he said. “Our season stops around the first week of December, and won’t start back up again until the end of February.” Appointments are usually scheduled about 2-3 weeks out, but LCI is most known for their quick turn-around time with the highest quality. “We can have the whole project done in a day,” said Kalan. “With time to cure, you’ll have your car back on your driveway in under a week.”
Kalan Paul recommends full rebar installation to increase the life span of a driveway by approximately 20 years.
The quality of work with LCI Concrete speaks for itself, with an A+ rating with the BBB and Angie’s List. “We are the highest-rated and most reviewed concrete contractors online,” Kalan said. “That’s a lot to be proud of.” His mission is to provide the highest quality of workmanship and materials, with an expeditious project completion time, for ultimate customer satisfaction.
Kalan has been an Oklahoma resident for over 40 years, and a Broken Arrow resident for over 25 years. He and his wife will be celebrating their 19th wedding anniversary this year, with their four children. LCI Concrete is an extension of his commitment to the standard of excellence he provides his customers in this place he calls home.
