The approach, or driveway apron, is the area of the driveway closest to the road and is usually composed of the same material as the remainder of the driveway. Because most municipalities have building standards that govern driveway aprons, changing yours if it's in terrible shape or you want to enlarge the driveway can be difficult.
DeFord Contracting has been putting their skill, workforce and fleet to design and create long-lasting, high-quality concrete approaches for decade.
Metal dumpsters and trash trucks exert a lot of force on pavement. Because concrete is a firm substance, it will not as easily acquire dents and dimples in the surface like asphalt will. And when wire mesh or metal rebar is added to the slab, it creates an incredibly durable matrix that will withstand the weight of a trash truck for far longer than asphalt.
We lean on a thorough process and decades of experience, humanpower, and a massive fleet of heavy equipment to ensure the work we do is to the highest quality and exceeds your exacting specifications.

Extruded curb is commonly used to encircle a parking lot or landscaping, preventing dirt and grass from spilling onto the pavement in the event of severe weather. It's made by "extruding" a sand and concrete combination via a metal shoe, which makes it stronger and more durable.
