CONCRETE DRIVEWAYS

Concrete driveways provide a variety of practical and aesthetic possibilities that set them apart from other types of paving. Although you might be able to save a little money by completing the concrete work yourself, it will take a lot of time, and you might get the professional finish that you were aiming for. For this reason, you should call on the best concrete driveway contractors in San Antonio for your next residential or commercial job to ensure that your concrete work is completed to a high standard.

TYPES OF CONCRETE DRIVEWAYS SERVICE WE OFFER IN SAN ANTONIO

At Rocking S Concrete, we offer more than the traditional concrete driveway that’s most common in residential and commercial properties. We customize designs and offer unique finishes that complement your building’s aesthetic.

Stamped Driveways
We specialize in stamped concrete a selection that imitates several types of stones, including slate and flagstone, tile, brick, and even wood. With its many pattern and color options, this choice has become quite popular for enhancing driveways. Stamped concrete also offers an inexpensive alternative to paving stones and requires less upkeep.
Engraved Driveways
We’re also your go-to for concrete engraving. With this method, our craftsmen carve patterns into the concrete that leaves a permanent finish that won't fade or lose its bond. The decorative potential is truly amazing. Any designs that we imprint, such as brick, tile, or cobblestones, will last as long as the surface itself.
Stained Driveways
We can also stain your concrete driveway to improve its appearance in a cost-effective and adaptable method. The stain coat creates a permanent, fade-resistant color that won't flake off or peel away from the surface. You can also select between acid-based chemical stains and water-based stains.

THE DRIVEWAYS CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

As one of the most experienced concrete driveway contractors in San Antonio, we are transparent about our process. When you visit with our reps to review your free estimate and the project details, we’ll outline every step of our process which includes the following.

Remove Existing Material
The first step involves demolishing and removing any existing paving, vegetation, or debris from the worksite. This gives us a clear space to start the next step.
Excavation, Grading and Sloping
Next, we dig out the existing material and soil to create enough space for the driveway and extra space for drainage. We ensure any soft spots are excavated and then back-filled with compacted sub-base material.
Strength Check or Proof Roll
From there, we perform the proof roll test to check the profile of the subgrade layer before installing the overlying pavement layers. This is done by rolling a heavy truck over the subgrade layer.
Prepare the Sub-base
Once the area is prepared, the sub-base is graded or leveled to fit the final paving's intended profile. We make sure no holes are left in the sub-base. However, any openings that are found are filled with sand or stone dust and then compacted before the laying course is applied.
Binder and Surface Course
Once everything checks out, we move to the binder course which involves distributing the load to the base course that’s located between the surface and the base course. Immediately below the surface or binder course, the base course provides more load distribution and sub-surface drainage.
Butt Joints and Transitions
Butt joints are the places where the new driveway concrete joins the sidewalk. To guarantee proper grading and water runoff, we give some extra attention to these transitional zones. Also, to prevent cars and pedestrians from noticing a difference in the surfaces, butt joints are crucial.
Install Top-coat
The next step brings us to the top-coat which eliminates any slippery surfaces, mitigates cracking during seasonal temperature changes, and helps retain a uniform appearance.
