Professional Concrete Filling
Concrete filling is most certainly something to take advantage of. Over time all concrete slabs will expand and contract, and this causes cracks. No matter whether it's a concrete driveway, patio, pool, or porch you're dealing with, you most certainly don't want your concrete to fall into disrepair.
And so, to increase the lifespan of your concrete, we're almost sure that joint filling will be necessary at some stage of your concrete's life. The reason we know this is because your concrete's control joints will eventually widen over time. If they are not filled at this stage, they will start accumulating dirt, debris, moisture, and – with heavy traffic – they will eventually degrade over time.
Don't let your concrete deteriorate. Keep an eye on your joints and call in the experts to do any necessary filling when need be. By repairing and maintaining your concrete, you'll avoid substantial problems over time.
About The Joint Filling Process
Control joints are added to concrete slabs to stop them from cracking randomly across your paving during the shrinking process. The majority of shrinking occurs within the first 90 days of your concrete’s life and throughout the first year.
After 90 days, it is recommended to fill the joint. The filling itself is done with a material that has enough strength to match the durability of the concrete. This way, it will endure heavy traffic and wear and tear.
A joint – if not filled – is an easy entry point for water. And you know that controlling the amount of moisture that penetrates your concrete is vital. If not filled or sealed, you will see a negative impact on the adjacent concrete slabs and even your concrete base.

“I am writing this letter to commend Skylar Spahn and Dan Peters for the excellent job they did on our driveway last Saturday, August 1, 2015.
They arrived promptly and were very personable and helpful! All my questions were answered completely and thoroughly. They went above and beyond what I expected. They were interrupted by rain and had to stop. They returned and finished the job as soon as the conditions permitted that day which I was very thankful for. I will recommend them and your company to my neighbors. Thank you.”

“I had your company do some work on my steps and around my foundation. Your company truck pulled up and four gentlemen got out. They had a job to do. Each knew what to do and they went to work.
If I had any questions or concerns, Steve was there to answer them. It was a great crew. I cannot express enough how happy I am with the job that was done. My home is in one piece again. I wish I could have had the driveway done, but I understand about the black tar. Any visitors I have are surprised how good it looks. Again I thank you.”
P.S. Give the crew a raise. They were great!

“I would rate this company A+. From the start they were responsive and answered any and all questions I had. I really appreciated the fact no one tried to “up sell” me or treat me like I didn’t know what I was talking about. When they came to caulk the cracks in my driveway, they were so wonderful. Had I not seen them here with my own eyes, I would never have known they had done work here; they were so quick, efficient and cleaned up everything! I have already told a friend that I think they are the company to go with. I am very glad I called them and am so thrilled with the results so far! Thank You!”
“The Driveway Co did an outstanding job on our new garage floor. The workers, Steve and Mike, were very professional and friendly. They took the time to explain the procedure and answered our questions. They also cleaned up the work area. Thanks!”

“I’m so glad I saw the TV commercial for The Driveway Co. I had deep scoring cracks in my back patio and front walk and I thought if they went through another winter of freezing and thawing and freezing, they would require more work. And it looked like more work than I could or wanted to do to look right. They did a Great job. I’m very pleased with the work they did and would refer them to anyone who needs this type of work done. Well done and neat. I’m proud to show my patio and front walk.”
“We heard very positive things about The Driveway Company and decided to opt for a driveway renovation. We are very pleased with the technical aspects of the renovation. The 2 guys that came were very skilled at their craft. They sawed some expansion (crack) joints in order to alleviate some of the problems with expansion and contraction at the frost line in order to facilitate the prevention of any moisture that would undermine the structure of the driveway. Then they sealed each crack and fissure, even the tiniest hairline cracks.
We were delightfully surprised at the extraordinary job that was skillfully accomplished by the Driveway techs. We could not be happier nor could we have found a better company to do our drive. Thank you The Driveway Company. We would highly recommend their professional workmanship.”

“The Driveway Company removed failed caulking and recaulked the drive and patio. Their estimator and workers were friendly and courteous. They did not treat me like an idiot because I am a female and do not know a lot about concrete. The job looks very neat and I have every confidence that the driveway is structurally stable and well done. I’m very pleased with the whole experience.”
