Concrete Sidewalk Contractor Maple Ridge
Concrete has been the most popular building material for awhile now and developed many different types of styles and designs over the years. Having a large number of choices for your concrete sidewalk can be both a blessing and curse as sometimes there can be "too" many options to choose from. Here are some factors that should be taken into consideration for your pathway:
- Will you require the concrete to match the exterior of a building or the surrounding landscape
- Do you have the time or resources available for some routine maintenance or more of a hands-off solution
- Is this a pathway that is used occasionally or is it situated in a high traffic area
- Is this a commercial setting where heavy machinery is being used
We've worked with many contractors, homeowners, strata managers, and property managers over the years and have the experience to assess your exact situation. Not only will it be safe and have the exact functionality you request, we can also add some beautiful visual aesthetics to it as well.
If you are looking to add some visuals to your pathway, decorative concrete can be an excellent option. Stamped concrete or exposed aggregate are very common decorative concrete finishes for walkways. Your concrete can also be stained which will allow you to mix and match different styles and colours. With stamping, you can make a pathway look like different types of stone, brick, and even cobblestone. Concrete allows you to double dip as you get to use the relatively more inexpensive building material while having the flexibility to choose the appearance of how it looks. If you use a finish like exposed aggregate, it has built in utility of grip which other materials don't have.
If you are ever thinking of listing your property for sale, having your sidewalks redone can be a great way to increase your property value and give people a great first impression. While you might think a freshly done sidewalk won't be the reason someone buys your home, a cracked or damaged sidewalk can definitely be the reason that some buyers are turned off.
