Frequently Asked Questions about Imprinted Concrete

Please check the list below for answers to the most commonly asked questions we receive

What is Pattern Imprinted Concrete?

Pattern Imprinted Concrete is an innovative technique of laying blended concrete, colouring and imprinting to offer you distinctive, tailor-made driveway, patio or courtyard.

How long will it take to install?

This depends on the size of job, but we will stay on your project from start to finish. An average driveway is a five day project if the weather is good.

How long will my new driveway last?

Reinforced concrete should last a lifetime when installed correctly by a professional company.

When am I able to park on my installation?

Once the final stage is completed, 48 hours before driving or parking and 2 weeks before placing any plant pots. You can walk on it after 3-4 hours of completion.

What depths do we dig down to?

Overall, we excavate to approx. 200-250mm. The sub base of hardcore will be compacted to a depth of approx. 100-150mm depending on the type of ground, and concrete is to a depth of approx. 100mm.

Can you build walls?

Yes, if it is part of the project we have qualified brick layers who carry out all necessary brick laying requirements

Can you remove the garden and make it a full driveway?

A lot of people are doing this to enable better parking facilities. Some customers also mention the benefits of going maintenance free.

What about drainage?

All necessary drainage requirements are installed at the preparation stage. The imprint team will install “deco” drain and or, “key” drain if necessary and “rake” the concrete when pouring, to gain the correct rainwater flows once complete. This will ensure the finished driveway does not hold water.
