Houston Concrete Contractors Install, Repair, and Level Driveways
Because concrete is so versatile, durable, and easy to maintain, it’s a natural choice for residential and commercial driveways. A concrete driveway indicates quality construction from the first glance at your property’s exterior. At CCS Concrete Driveways, we pride ourselves on offering high-quality concrete driveways for property owners throughout Houston, TX.
People don’t always associate concrete with its versatility. A mixture of cement, sand, and crushed rocks, it is durable and relatively inexpensive compared to pavers. Although it costs a bit more than asphalt or gravel, concrete is highly resilient. It can last 25 years or more and requires little maintenance.
If your driveway looks old and the surface is damaged, consider redoing it with concrete. Our concrete driveway installation contractors will assess your property and determine if a new installation or repairs are necessary. Damage to concrete includes cracks, gaps, segregation, uneven slabs, and discoloration. Sunken areas and subgrade issues can create safety hazards, but our concrete driveway repair service professionals will correct the problem, so your driveway remains functional for many years.

Installation: First, the grass and vegetation at the construction site are removed, so we can stabilize the soil foundation and adjust elevations to ensure proper drainage. High-quality materials are used for frame out. We use expansion joints made of treated wood or redwood, and rebar on risers to match local spacing and size requirements, before pouring 3,000 psi concrete.
Repair: At CCS, Houston driveway repair is available 24/7 to make things look like new, no matter what the damage is. We apply polyurethane sealants or polymer-based cement resurfacers, where possible, and we address complicating factors such as retaining walls, hand railings, joints, plumbing, and drainage. We’ll evaluate why your concrete has cracked, stained, or crumbled and provide the necessary fixes.

Concrete Driveway Installation
Installation teams at CCS understand that your concrete driveway won’t be level if the subgrade isn’t adequately prepared. Settlement and structural cracking are major concerns here. We prepare the subgrade soil and materials for construction by replacing soft areas with more solid gravel or crushed rock. Our engineers work to ensure optimal soil characteristics before installing your concrete driveway.
Next, they dampen the material to prevent it from drying out the fresh concrete and use specialized machinery to compact the materials below the soon-to-be-installed concrete slabs. Then the concrete is properly mixed. We are also concerned about the durability and longevity of the finished product, so the installation process includes:
- Joint placement: Control joints are placed at pre-determined intervals and help produce a regular pattern that’s easy on the eyes.
- Steel reinforcement: Structural support helps the driveway hold up to heavy traffic; the steel rebar or wire mesh holds things together, even if cracks do form.
- Finishing: We’ll work to ensure a uniform surface, but not overwork it until the bleedwater subsides; sometimes less is more when finishing a concrete driveway.
- Drainage: Sloping the driveway toward the street and away from structures enables water to drain without accumulating where it can cause damage.
- Curing: CCS Concrete Driveways employs the appropriate curing techniques, to guarantee optimal strength and weather resistance upon completion.
Concrete Driveway Repair
Concrete driveways often last for a very long time but can become settled, cracked, scaled, or discolored. Sometimes problems arise because of improperly compacted subgrades, or conditions that cannot be controlled, such as severe weather. We will check that the concrete is structurally intact; if so, replacement is probably not required,
First, our team will try to determine the cause of the damage. We’ll then work on the best possible solution to correct the problem. There are many additional techniques we are skilled in that can restore your concrete driveway to its original luster.
Resurfacing: Cracked or scaled concrete can be resurfaced, which covers up the flaws that are there and affords an opportunity to upgrade the look. Additional repairs may be needed first, especially if the concrete isn’t sound or the cracks are extensive. With resurfacing, new colors or patterns can be selected.
Engraving: Cover up relatively minor cracks and discolorations by engraving unique patterns into the existing concrete. Our Houston driveway repair team can also work with existing flaws to integrate them into the pattern and overall look, using a routing machine to cut into the surface.
Recoloring: Weathering, neglect, and sun exposure can cause discoloration of concrete. If this has become a problem, we can apply one of several coloring methods, including staining or acid coating. A UV-resistant staining product is used to enhance durability, while an efficient sealer will protect the driveway and its appearance for years to come.
Slabjacking: This is one way to lift sinking driveway slabs. If soil erosion or improperly compacted subgrade materials have caused the concrete to sink, cement, sand, ash, and other materials can be pumped underneath the slab to raise it up.
