Many people wonder what the difference is between concrete and asphalt driveways. Are you unsure if concrete is the best choice for your driveway? Here are some facts that may make your decision easier… Concrete driveways are often preferred because of their low maintenance compared to asphalt. Concrete driveways once installed and sealed require very little care. Unlike asphalt driveways that need to be resealed every 3 years, concrete is mostly maintenance free. Another reason why so many homeowners choose a concrete driveway is because of how its curb appeal and how nice it looks compared to a black asphalt driveway.

VSCF forms and pours foundations for residential and commercial projects. The foundation of a home or building is essential to the value and safety of the structure. The construction must be done correctly in terms of the type of foundation being formed to avoid problems with settlement and properly prepare the subgrade through final curing stages. Each phase of foundation construction has necessary requirements and components upon which a structure depends.
Most foundations are slab on grade. As the name suggests, a slab is a single layer of concrete, several inches thick. The slab is poured thicker at the edges, to form an integral footing with reinforcing rods strengthening the thickened edge. The slab normally rests on a bed of crushed gravel to improve drainage. A grid of steel rebar in the concrete reduces the chance of cracking.
Whether you need a small pad for a propane tank or a 20,000 square foot commercial building, let VSCF assist you with a foundation and other concrete needs.
