Spring is a popular time for remodeling and home improvement tasks. If you’re looking to boost your home’s appeal, think of what you first notice upon arrival at a house. Is it the kitchen? Bathroom? Garage? No – it’s the driveway!
After years of winter snow, ice and corrosive salt covering the driveway, the concrete inevitably deteriorates and becomes pitted and flaked, transforming into a real eyesore. The deterioration gradually worsens until it has a negative effect on your home’s visual appeal, and even its value. An old cracked driveway can not only be unsightly, but also dangerous.
Kalan Paul, owner of LCI Concrete, offers a simple solution. Kalan and his team “do driveways.” Projects are completed in two to three days.
With 20 years of experience, Kalan knows exactly what he is doing. He has been in business with LCI Concrete since 2005. “Concrete is durable, and when the soil and concrete are properly prepared and poured, you can expect it to last at least 30 to 40 years,” he says. “Concrete is also environmentally friendly, as it is composed of renewable resources that can be recycled into granular fill or concrete aggregate.”
LCI Concrete first lays 3/8-inch rebar on industry recommended two-foot grid patterns after the subsurface has been properly prepared. Using industry standards of 3500 psi, the concrete is then poured and finished.
“We have one goal – to make every customer proud of their new LCI Concrete product that will service them well for decades to come,” says Kalan.
As you plan your home remodeling this spring, don’t overlook your driveway and walkways. These two areas can provide a big bang for your buck and help boost the overall appeal of your home’s entrance. Call Kalan to schedule a meeting to receive your free estimate.
