Construction

Badly cracked Driveway?

You are not alone, driveways crack for a number of reasons. age, weather, poor workmanship and installation are just a few of the more common reasons.

Cracked driveway

Demolish existing concrete

This is done quickly and efficiently using a large concrete breaker mounted on a Bobcat.

Remove Concrete

Next our crew will load all the broken concrete into a dump truck to be hauled away. All concrete is recycled into crush that will be reused.

Remove Concrete

Prepare Base

After the concrete is removed, a few inches of the dirt “base” will be removed. This allows our free draining ¾” clear crush to be added. This is a critical step that allows water to freely drain away and prevents freezing of water under the new concrete driveway which could cause cracking, sinking or lifting.

Prepare Base

Place, Finish, and Seal

Lastly with all the preparations complete the chosen concrete can be placed. Colors, designs, patterns and finishes are endless. After all is complete, we add a sealer to not only protect the new finish, but also to enhance the look of the concrete.

At Atlas Bobcat our skilled crew goes to great lengths to create beautiful long lasting driveways. However, no concrete contractor can guarantee that a crack won’t from in a new driveway once it is finished. The Atlas Bobcat crew prides itself in placing concrete on a sound base and providing correct joint control lines to “direct” the cracks. Even with all if the correct procedures in place, a stray crack can form in your new driveway. While it may seem like a faulty installation, it is an unfortunate joint that the concrete needed. These stray cracks are not often signs of bigger problems and Atlas Bobcat in not responsible for stray or random cracking.

While choosing custom colors for your new driveway, it is important to remember that while our color system is pretty accurate, discrepancies can occur between brochure color swatches and the finished product as well as from load to load of concrete. Our concrete suppliers do their best to provide consistent colors, but Atlas Bobcat will not responsible for variations in the color.
