Imprinted Concrete Driveways Installation

Excavation: Our professionals will excavate the driveway to 200mm depth, and then road stone is added up to 100mm.

Drainage: Following that, shuttering and drainage are placed.

Concrete: In this step, our experts will bring the concrete to the job site and pump it over the driveway. Then, the concrete is levelled and screeded before being hand-troweled to a smooth finish.

Colour: To make the surface pigment, a colour hardener is applied and smoothened with the help of a hand trowel.

Printing: When the concrete becomes a bit hard, we apply a release agent over the surface, and the imprinting process starts. After the imprinting, the driveway is allowed to cure for 24-48 hours.

Joints for Expansion: Once the concrete surface is hardened enough to walk on, our experts will use a pressure washer to clean the driveway and cut the expansion joints to avoid cracking.

Washed and Sealed: Lastly, we will clean the driveway and leave it for drying.

The time taken may vary depending on the size of the area to be covered. Generally, it may take around 7-10 days.

The textured finish of the imprinted concrete and the application of anti-slippery sealants make the driveway non-slippery.

These driveways don’t require any special maintenance. All they need is pressure washing at regular intervals and degreasing to remove tough stains.
