There are many different types of driveway materials to fit any budget or aesthetic. No matter what type you choose, Pressure Perfect can perform driveway pressure washing to keep it clean!
Different types of driveways
When considering what type of driveway to install, you may think about initial cost, local ordinances, your local climate, future maintenance, aesthetics, and the shape of your driveway area.
Poured Concrete Driveways
Poured concrete driveways are very popular as they are fairly permanent and low-maintenance. While more expensive than asphalt, concrete driveways are more durable. Concrete driveways do not need to be one solid piece. They can be poured to form patterns and have sections, allowing for expanding and contraction during different weather conditions. Concrete can also be stamped with a pattern to make it look like brick or stone. Concrete’s biggest issue is the ease with which it can stain. We can power wash your concrete driveway to keep it clear of stains and in good shape for decades.
Asphalt Paved Driveways
Asphalt paved driveways are very popular and less expensive than poured concrete. Asphalt driveways are a combination of sand, rock, and asphalt cement and are usually black in color. While they can last for many years, asphalt driveways need to be resealed occasionally to keep them in good shape. Properly installed and maintained asphalt paved driveways can be expected to last thirty or more years. Regular power washing of your asphalt driveway will keep harmful dirt and debris from building up.
Interlocking Paver Driveway
Driveway pavers are usually made of brick, cement or concrete and are shaped to interlock with one another without the use of mortar. They can be shaped into different pattern and color combinations to add beauty to your driveway. Because pavers are porous, they can become stained over the years. Regular pressure washing can remove marks from oil, tires and other contaminants.
Exposed Aggregate Driveway
Exposed aggregate is one of the most popular driveway finishes. It creates a non-slip sealed surface that can last for nearly a decade with little maintenance. Exposed aggregate is available in a wide range of colors, sizes, and shades allowing you to create a unique and attractive driveway that will enhance this part of your home. Exposed aggregate uses special concrete mixes combined with unique aggregates that are exposed on the surface. Smooth textured stones and pebbles remain exposed as part of the concrete surface. Pressure washing of your exposed aggregate driveway can keep it clear of harmful dirt and debris.
