Cracks: Simple minor cracks can be fixed by patch up work done on the spot. Alternatively, concrete engraving can be an cost effective alternative to disguise the damage. In many cases, cracks can even be left alone to produce a natural brick or stone feel.
Engraving concrete allows special patterns and color staining to be applied to the cracked portion of your driveway..
Surface Damage: If your driveway is scaling off, it might be wise to consider resurfacing to cover up the flaws. Resurfacing allows high degree of aesthetic controls as you can colour stain, engrave or apply stamped concrete on top of the existing layer.
Sinking Damage: Occasionally the foundation under the concrete fixture can start to sink, causing a dreadful fault along the driveway. It is possible to inject mixture of sand, ash, and cement to elevate the bed beneath the slab. After the re-leveling repair work can be executed. This process is called Slabjacking.
