Concrete Driveway Installation -- Orland Park, IL.

Serving Tinley Park, Mokena, Frankfort, Homer Glen, New Lenox & The Southwest Suburbs of Chicago

At Vander Veer Concrete, we will review your needs and conduct a professional site evaluation. A proposal will be drawn up and submitted promptly. Upon acceptance of our proposal, Vander Veer Concrete will remove your existing driveway or area to be prepared and haul it to an authorized dumping location. We will then re-establish 4-6 inches of compacted base material. We then frame the area to have concrete and set up wire mesh throughout the entire framed area. The concrete is then poured 5 to 6 inches thick followed by a cure & seal application.

Concrete is considered to be the longest lasting and most durable material for driveways. Although asphalt is usually less expensive, it requires more maintenance and it’s lifespan is generally considered half that of a concrete driveway especially in Chicagoland. An asphalt driveway will also usually cost seventy five percent of a concrete driveway. A concrete driveway will also increase the value of your home more than an asphalt and give you much more curb appeal. Taking all this into consideration, concrete will give you the best return on your investment.

Professional Concrete Installation for Driveways

Concrete is only as good as the base underneath it. We start with a premium gravel base that is mechanically compacted. Forms are placed for the desired shape and size of your new driveway. Wire mesh is then placed and tied for proper structural reinforcement. The concrete is then placed with the specified mix design from the ready mix supplier. The concrete mix will also have fiber reinforcement for secondary reinforcement to minimize cracking and improve impact resistance of the driveway. We double reinforce all of the concrete driveways we place for the longest lasting driveway, something most contractors don’t do. After the concrete is finished, we apply a final cure and seal. This properly cures your concrete so it achieves its mix design strength. These steps create the most durable, longest lasting driveway possible, generally giving you a lifetime of service.

Concrete Driveway Replacement

The choice of concrete as the paving material for your driveway is one almost impossible to regret. While your neighbors are enjoying the little bit of money they saved by layering their dirty entryway with gravel, you can enjoy not having to pick tiny little pebbles out from your tire tread on a regular basis. 20+ years from now while your concrete driveway still looks new, your neighbor on the other side of the street will be forced to endure the sickening smell of asphalt for the 2nd time. When it comes to quality driveway installation, Vander Veer Concrete can’t be beat.  Call us today for an appointment at 708.444.1345.
