Concrete Sidewalk Vancouver
Concrete is a building material that has been used for a long time in history. Compared to the early days when concrete was used, many different types of designs, colours, and textures have been developed. Having a plethora of choices can be both a blessing and curse to some people. Some people can get caught up in analysis paralysis when there are too many choices to choose from. For example will you require the concrete to match the exterior of a building or the landscape? Do you have the resources or time available for a bit of routine maintenance or are you looking for a hands-off solution? Will the sidewalk be something that is used occasionally by people or will it be in a high traffic area with people or heavy machinery.
These are just some of the factors that need to be considered when you have so many options available to you. We have worked with many homeowners, property managers, strata managers, and contractors with similar needs to yours and have turned them into happy lifelong customers. We can help you design a safe and functional sidewalk that matches your exact needs while still giving a wow factor to anyone that gazes their eyes upon it.
A pathway is also a perfect candidate for decorative concrete. A properly stamped walkway or something that is installed with exposed aggregate can be a way to add a unique flavor to your walkway. Your concrete can be coloured and stained to allow you to mix and match different designs and colours. With modern technology, you are able to make a concrete pathway look like brick, cobblestone, and other types of stone material. This allows you to get the best of both worlds as you get to use the durable and inexpensive material of concrete with the visual aesthetics of other materials. When using exposed aggregate concrete for your pathways, you gain the added utility of grip that other finishes might not necessarily provide. It's a no brainer to use concrete when thinking about a sidewalk or pathway.
If you're thinking of selling your property in the future, having any sidewalks or pathways around your home re-done can be a great way to increase your property value. Potential buyers will have the peace of mind that the walkways will last for years to come. While a freshly done sidewalk may not be the reason why someone buys a home you want to make sure an old cracked one doesn't become the reason they don't.
