Kalan Paul and LCI Concrete are experts in replacing concrete driveways that have lost their appeal.
Face it. A deteriorating driveway is an eyesore. It’s a bad reflection of you and your neighborhood. If you live in Oklahoma long enough, the odds are that one day your drive is going to be in need of a makeover. Between the freezing snow and ice that our winters generally deliver and the corrosive effects of products used to melt ice from our frozen paths of travel, your driveway is eventually going to start showing negative signs of age, corrosion and other influences.
Kalan Paul and LCI Concrete specialize in the replacement of concrete driveways that have, for one reason or another, a case of the “uglies”. “We use only the finest and strengthening materials available for any project we do,” said Kalan. “When only the best materials are used in properly preparing the ground through the laying and curing of the concrete, we expect the finished product to serve you well for at least 30-40 years.” LCI performs their trade throughout northeastern Oklahoma communities including Tulsa, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Collinsville, Jenks and Owasso.
LCI’s ultimate goal is a satisfied customer and outstanding workmanship in each job they tackle. When you’re considering replacing a driveway or other concrete areas of your home or business properties, make sure you know the people you’re asking for estimates. Get a quote in writing that itemizes all work to be done and specifications of the products and materials they will use in completing the work. Ask to see verification of the individual’s or company’s general liability. It’s always good to deal with companies you know or those who have been in business in our area for at least a year. Don’t be duped by an imposter claiming to be in the home-improvement business. Ask for credentials and references before you commit.
Any reputable business will be able to provide you with proof that they are a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau. If you have any doubts, call the BBB and/or check records to see if any complaints have been lodged against the person or company with which you are negotiating. It’s also important to ask for references for projects the company has done that were similar to yours. Call the home or business owners and then visit the properties to see some finished projects. LCI Concrete has served the Tulsa Metro area for over 12 years and they have a list of more than 100 driveways available for your viewing.
“Steel rebar is critical for strengthening concrete work,” says Kalan. “Make sure it is part of the fabrication process and specified in the total cost estimate before you sign a contract.” Replacing a tired, unsightly driveway is not inexpensive. But, with its life expectancy when done professionally, it can be a great investment adding value to your home or business. Call LCI concrete today for your estimate.
