As people continue to expand their investment in real estate, the demand for beautifying these properties should continue

One of the most effective ways to enhance the look of a home is by gracing it with a decorative concrete driveway. The Concrete Network has put together a new downloadable catalog on Concrete Driveways for homeowners, designers and builders looking for ideas on enhancing driveways with decorative concrete.
Pages are filled with all of the necessary information to make an educated decision regarding a concrete driveway make-over. Included are full color photos, and design options in using decorative stamps, stains, sawcut patterns, color options and much more.
When homeowners build a new driveway or revamp an existing one, many turn to concrete, but not just the typical, gray concrete. Decorative concrete allows for driveways to be customized. Because concrete can be forged into a range of textures, colors, and patterns, it is a versatile part of an overall landscape design and can increase the value of a home.
"As people continue to expand their investment in real estate, the demand for beautifying these properties should continue," explains Mike Verlennich of Verlennich Masonry and Concrete. "Beautiful, durable concrete is the best choice for long-term function and aesthetic appeal."
Many concrete driveways last for 30 years or more and, in the long run, may cost less than using and maintaining natural materials like flagstone, brick or slate. The catalog also features many decorative products that can resurface existing driveways without the need to tear out and replace the entire slab.
