Why Is Smith Evergreen Concrete Driveway Better Than Gravel Driveway?

May 11, 2022

Smith Evergreen Concrete Driveway in Richmond is the best choice for those who want a clean, smooth surface that won't get muddy or rutted by rain. Gravel driveways often become unsightly after heavy rains because of all the dirt they collect flying around during storms which can make them very messy to maintain - especially if you have pets.

Why Smith Evergreen Concrete Driveway Is Better Than A Gravel Driveway?

Smith Evergreen is a sustainable, cost-effective material that can withstand tons of traffic. It's also durable and long-lasting so you won't need to worry about repairs or replacements for years!

Cracks are common with any concrete project, but they don't have to be! Smith evergreen can fix small cracks in your sidewalk or walkway so that you never notice them. You may get one or two every year if it has been installed well- these marks will only add character and beauty as time goes by. If there's serious damage though - like pieces coming off because of an accident – then call us right away before things get worse. 

Why Gravel Isn’t The Best Choice For Your Driveway?

Installing a gravel driveway is an investment that will need more constant maintenance than a concrete driveway. However, if you don't maintain it properly or leave snow on top of the stones during wintertime there can be some serious problems! You may find yourself struggling with frozen pebbles every January when trying to shovel out puddles caused by water overflowing from cracks between individual rocks stuck in place due to this insufficient draining capacity- which isn’t recommended either since most people who install such surfaces want them clean enough so as avoid additional dirt accumulating within their own home grounds over time. We recommend sweeping & power washing your Smith Evergreen Concrete surface periodically.
