The Replacement Process

Madewell Concrete delivers high quality driveways, walkways and patios that bring curb appeal to your home. We’re your one-stop shop for residential concrete repair or driveway replacement.

First, your old concrete is removed, disposed of, and hauled off to be recycled into stone. Next, we grade the sub-grade and install temporary forms to hold the wet concrete in place. The concrete is poured and immediately smoothed, and control joints are added. Once the concrete hardens, the forms are removed.

CONTROL JOINTS: Control joints help manage any cracks that might occur in concrete. They are shallow grooves that are put in place after concrete is poured. As the concrete hardens and shrinks, any separation usually occurs at the contractions joints where the concrete is thinner and weaker. Even with proper control joints, concrete driveways can still crack. Due to the variability of terrain and conditions, there is not a way to fully prevent or guarantee against aesthetic(hairline) cracking.

CURING: Concrete sets or cures through a chemical process called hydration. Water molecules and the cement form tiny crystals that interlock with one another and the aggregate in the mix to give concrete its strength.

CONCRETE RATINGS: Concrete grade is defined by the strength of the concrete and is measured in pounds per square inch(PSI). Generally, the higher the PSI grade, the more weight it can handle. Residential driveway concrete is 3000 to 4000 PSI.

DRIVEWAY DESIGN: Residential driveways are usually 4 inches thick. Driveways should be designed and graded to manage water runoff and prevent excessive puddling.
