Crack and Joint Sealing: Unsealed cracks and joints will allow water to pass through and seep beneath your concrete, washing out the base that acts as it’s support. Furthermore, water between cracks and joints can expand and contract by up to nine percent, resulting in fractures or crumbling of concrete.
The Driveway Company of Grimes will make sure the job is done right and to your satisfaction in order to prevent further damage to your concrete.

Driveway Replacement: We love driveway resurfacing, but there comes a time when a complete replacement is necessary. Just like your home, it all starts with a solid foundation. You can go around patching holes and filling cracks, and while that is great preventative maintenance, if the foundation underneath is bad, you need to get to the root of the problem. If you don’t, those issues are just going to rear their ugly heads again next year. The question is…is it time to replace the entire driveway?
The only way to know that for sure, is to determine whether or not the foundation itself is bad. A good measuring stick is age. If your driveway is more than 20 years old, it is time to replace it. Once driveways reach this age, they almost certainly have structural damage underneath and it is time to get to the root of the problem.
Is your driveway newer? If so, the issue can be a bit trickier to diagnose. Particularly harsh winters, and lots of rain can damage even newer driveways as well. Tell tale signs of a failing driveway foundation is the size of the cracks. If the crack in the driveway is more than a few inches wide and deep, then it is time to get an expert out to determine if the foundation underneath is bad, or a simple crack filling job will suffice.
If you think your driveway might need replaced, give us a call, we’d be more than happy to come out and give you a free estimate.
Protective Concrete Sealing: Applying protective concrete sealant extends the life of your driveway by sealing cracks and joints. Whether you have a newly poured driveway or want to prevent your current driveway from having issues, sealing is crucial.
Properly sealing your driveway can prevent bigger problems from occurring. Unsealed cracks can allow water to seep underneath and erode concrete. Over time untreated cracks will enlarge further, accelerating the erosion of your concrete.
In addition to driveways, patios and sidewalks are subject to the same problems. The application of our commercial grade products will leave your driveway looking and functioning great for years to come!
Mudjacking: Do you have uneven concrete that needs to be raised? Uneven concrete can cause erosion, water penetration, foundation leaks, and, most importantly, trip hazards. Trip hazards can potentially lead to lawsuits. Reduce the possibility of this occurring with mudjacking.
Mudjacking is both an economical and environmentally friendly way to raise the concrete on:

The Driveway Company mudjacked two slabs of my drive at 2 inches. They also 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.

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!
The guys were here on time. They worked very hard on our driveway and it really looks great! We are very pleased. Thanks for all your hard work.

Thank you for a job well done! The crew that was here did a great job! Please be sure to tell them!
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 mudjack and caulk the cracks in my driveway, they were so wonderful. Had I not seen them here with my own eyes, I would never had 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!
