So, the question is: Should you repair or re-do your dirty Phoenix driveway?

Repairing Vs Replacement
Over time, your driveway will begin to show signs of damages. Cracks, holes, and divots can begin to appear over the surface, and can potentially lead to larger, and deeper, problems. This can be caused by a number of factors including:

  • Freeze-thaw cycles
  • Weight of vehicles over time
  • Extreme heat and sun

If the visible cracks in your driveway are less than a quarter-inch wide, you shouldn’t be too worried. These can easily be repaired. Your concrete professional can help prolong the life of your driveway and with simple repair and resurface project.

However, if the cracks in your driveway are larger than a quarter-inch, filling them will only serve as a temporary fix. The age of your driveway should also be taken into effect as well. If it’s more than 20 years old, it’s probably time for a replacement.

Building A Gorgeous Outdoor Kitchen In Your Backyard

Needing more space for entertaining outside? If so, you may want to think about adding a gorgeous outdoor living space. Today, more and more homeowners are deciding to entertain at home. Plus, adding outdoor living space can increase your home value by as much as 11 percent, which is a pretty sound decision according to a study done by the University of Michigan. However, if you’re thinking about doing improvements, think about an outdoor kitchen first.

Installing an outdoor kitchen can help bring beauty and functionality to your backyard. Plus, you’ll add living space to your home. If you’re thinking you don’t have the space or live in an area that isn’t quite flat, you may have to build out your space first. You can do this by adding a retaining wall. Outdoor retaining walls can easily allow you to create an outdoor area that can easily host an array of additional living space.

 And, if you have a flair for cooking, you will also be giving yourself a place to enjoy a great hobby. Outdoor kitchens don’t have to be elaborate, but if you’re really into cooking, you may want to pull out all the stops when creating an outdoor kitchen. However, when adding a gorgeous kitchen, you may have to watch expenses. If you’re really looking for a great outdoor al fresco dining experience but for half the cost, think about creating your chef masterpiece from concrete. Finished concrete can give you the same look and feel as a high-end natural stone kitchen, but for much less. Plus, if you do have to add a retaining wall, you can also use concrete or block. Don’t worry though, block retaining walls can take on the look of natural stone to match any home façade. You can even incorporate a block fireplace too. Whatever you choose to build, your investment will add to your home’s value, and you’ll end up with more living space to boot. Contact a top rated masonry contractor in Livermore for more information!
