"If you don't go with Concrete it's your own asphalt."
American Pride Concrete specializes in the customization of driveways, patios, etc. into works of art that accommodates you and/or your family and/or business(s). We are skilled in the designing of new projects and working around and with the existing. We are highly experienced in the tearing out of the old and properly installing with the new. With over 25 yrs. experience in the concrete industry, we pride ourselves on professionalism and extreme attention to detail.
We are also reputable for the fixing of water drainage problems of all sorts. Being certain water drains away from homes and foundations properly is highly critical. In most cases we cure water problems WITHOUT having to rely on plastic piping, dependent upon many factors of course. If we must use piping, we aim to use PVC that will last versus plastic that is collapse-able, and we place piping within the rock base below the concrete versus within the concrete to avoid abnormal spider-web/jagged cracking. In some unique situations we have used and may recommend the use of self-sloping drains as seen in the picture below.
Control Joints are planned and professionally placed cracks which allow for movements caused by temperature changes and drying shrinkage. In other words, if the concrete does crack-you want to have an active role in deciding where it will crack, and that it cracks hidden within the straight line control joint versus visibly jagged.
Consistency is Key

A driveway with the retaining walls being high risk resulted in the previous concrete contractor giving homeowner a refund and voiding the agreed upon contract. We wasn't informed of such until we had successfully completed the project. If you'd like to hear more of the story from homeowner, read Judith J.'s 5-star review on our HomeAdviser page.
This Patio was constructed with water-drainage going towards the house. When the downspout drains stopped up water became a big problem pooling up around their foundation, therefore we fixed that with more room to boot. Homeowner reviewed us on HomeAdviser under Carol M.
This family was just sick and tired of their black top buckling, sinking, and creating water pooling in several places. We came in and replaced with 4 inches of concrete versus 3/4- 2 inches of asphalt. Like the saying goes "If you don't go with concrete it's your own Asphalt!"

These couple went concrete crazy on their property, but they did it right and we did too! Earned another 5-star review with HomeAdviser on this project under Marty S.
This homeowner sadly got scammed into a thin-coat overlay on his driveway that would never last with vehicles driving over, and the change in temperatures from summer to winter. Don't put your trust in an overlays no matter what, due to the fact that they will never bond to last for long! Find this homeowners review on HomeAdviser under Harold F.
