Whether your project involves private roads or public streets, concrete paving is the best choice for your project. There are many differences between concrete and asphalt street paving services which include: physical attributes, cost incurred, environmental and safety factors.
Some of the main reasons you should choose concrete for your road project are: it is the most recycled construction material in the world, life range between 25 to 50 years which saves you big time on repair and maintenance, more rigid and durable which means less potholes to keep drivers and their families safe and sound.
Parking Lots & Garages
A concrete parking lot is the right choice for your commercial or industrial property. There are many benefits to choosing concrete over asphalt like: excellent durability, low maintenance and improved safety to name a few.
A parking lot is essentially a slab on grade or an exterior slab on ground that has a sloped surface for water drainage so that water can be directed to certain areas to prevent flooding. Another feature of well built commercial parking structures is steel reinforcement or the use of rebar so that the finished product has the ability to handle heavy vehicle loads.
Sealer, Stains and Dyes
All concrete surfaces will have wear and tear including rain, snow, oil, gas, fertilizers, UV rays and freezing temperatures. To protect your investment requires proper care and maintenance. This means sealing your concrete whether its driveways, sidewalks, patios or porches – if it’s exterior concrete, protect it now and for years to come – seal it.
Sealing your concrete helps to control moisture penetration as well as contaminants that could produce stains that if left untreated can have permanent damaging effects over time. Concrete sealer also allows your concrete to breathe, this will ensure that no moisture is trapped in the concrete and helps greatly with freeze and thaw cycles.
Building the right concrete wheelchair ramp for your commercial property can sometimes be a difficult task. There are very strict guidelines that have been set up by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that require minimum and maximum widths, edge protection, landings, handrails, stable slip-resistant surfaces, placement of truncated domes and prescribed slopes that are measured in percentages.
If you have decided its time to add ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps to your existing concrete walkways to help your visitors safely and comfortably access your facilities then its time to contact a quality commercial concrete contractor that knows all the rules and regulations set by the ADA – Douglas Concrete is that contractor.

There are two types of concrete curbing installations the first is cast-in-place curbing, the second is extruded curbing. This type of curbing is not as durable as the first but it can be a very cost effective option if you are working with an existing parking lot and wanting to place the curbing on top of asphalt.
