August 2021: Home improvement is currently trending, and honestly, never goes out of style. However, for obvious reasons, more and more people are increasing their investment of time and money into their sanctuaries, whether for updates, replacements or additions. The first impression of any home is the driveway that leads to the house itself. Add that to the top of the list when making your next improvement investment.
One of the most underappreciated parts of a home may very well be the driveway. Incidentally, most people won’t notice how important this facet really is, until it’s in need of repair. 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 16 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 750 new driveways since 2005. Fully insured, Kalan and his employees have over 70 years of combined experience working with concrete, with full rebar installation. “We always highly recommend the use of rebar in concrete,” Kalan said. “It will increase the life span by approximately 20 years.”
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. Driveway replacement can add to the value of the home and is a good investment. “I don’t think anyone would lose money replacing a driveway,” Kalan said. “It’s amazing what it can do for the look of a home.”
LCI takes great pride in the speed at which they are able to complete their work. Removing and replacing 50,000 lbs and beyond of material requires a great deal of effort! Most homeowners appreciate being able to utilize their driveway as quickly as possible, and they consider this a top priority. “We lead the way as a well-oiled machine,” said Kalan. “In most cases, we show up early, work hard, remove and replace driveways within one day!” Most projects can be completed in one to two days. Their business philosophy focuses on three major points: customer satisfaction, quality workmanship and minimizing a homeowner’s downtime.
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 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.
