In almost every neighborhood, on nearly every street in America, there is a driveway, but they aren’t all constructed in the same way.  If the entrance to your home is built well, it should endure an era. In Oklahoma, a little extra time and care during construction will ensure it will withstand the elements and stay solid.  How do you know if yours will last?  It’s simple:  Call LCI.

Owner, Kalan Paul, has specialized in concrete driveway renewal and replacement for over 15 years.  His company is focused solely on their niche and expertise, and are, therefore, the authority on concrete driveways. They have earned their A+ rating with the BBB and Angie’s List, with an extraordinarily honest work ethic and the highest level of integrity.  LCI’s mission is to provide maximum quality workmanship and materials with an expeditious project completion time, all with an affordable price point and ultimate customer satisfaction.

In order to achieve their exceptional grade driveways, there are specific requirements to adhere to, ensuring that the concrete work will last for decades.  According to Kalan, a good foundation and the right mixture of materials is a prerequisite.  “Concrete in Oklahoma, in order to stand up to the elements, needs to be air-entrenched, meaning tiny bubbles are blown into the mixture before it comes out to the worksite,” he said.  “This gives it flexibility in our clay soil.”  The infrastructure of the driveway is also integral, with rebar used as the standard and set into the concrete in a grid pattern.  LCI then dowels the concrete together, in a process that drills into any existing, surrounding concrete and connects the newly laid pad.  “This keeps the new pad from rising and falling, or falling apart,” said Kalan.  A 3-day minimum cure time is required before it can be driven on. “We build a good, solid driveway that you’ll have for decades, and hopefully for your lifetime.”

A well-oiled machine, LCI’s assurance of excellence is the foundation of their business.  “I don’t want to have to come back and fix it,” Kalan said.  “With over 700 driveways installed, I haven’t had to replace one yet.  We keep and maintain the quality we provide.”

LCI provides excellence in driveway infrastructure, materials, and workmanship with quick completion of work, ensuring a driveway that will last a lifetime.

Kalan’s work ethic extends well beyond his business into his own personal life.  His father was a small business owner too and passed away early in his life.  “I became a business owner too, and now that I have children and have been married for almost 20 years, I want my children to be able to look up to me and follow in my footsteps, whatever they choose to do,” said Kalan,  “and just to know when you do something, do it right the first time, make your customers happy, and provide a quality product at a good price.  The rest will take care of itself.” 

Autumn is the best time to replace an unsightly, cracked, or stained driveway.  For more information or to schedule a consultation, please call Kalan at (918) 960-1440, or email him at eat0@eau0eav0eaw0.  Visit their website at www.lcitulsa.com to view a multitude of reviews and their project portfolio.
