Like many other services, concrete installation and removal can be a significant investment. You can see how much it would cost to install a driveway in Denver in our post. Our customers explain the process they have gone through to obtain an estimate, it seems chaotic. It seems that finding a concrete contractor in Denver can be much more challenging than it would sound. They report experiences of poor communication, no shows for appointments and a lot of other unprofessional responses. Our customers explain that they have a difficult time obtaining estimates or return phone calls. If hired, they explain that sometimes the contractor does not show up or reschedules the start date.

Denver Concrete Inc offers a different experience for obtaining a concrete estimate for driveway replacement. It starts with your initial contact with our concrete experts. When you call our office or request a concrete estimate, one of our concrete experts is assigned to your case. They will contact you to set up an in person estimate they will review the scope of work to and take measurements. It is during this meeting that our concrete expert will assess the project situation. They will start to give options as to what solutions might correct the conditions of the concrete driveway.

Educating Customers is Mission Critical

It is this education process that differentiates us from any old concrete contractor. We realize that most of our customers don't have the experience or knowledge about concrete to make an educated decision. Most customers do not know what they need to do to fix their concrete driveway. This is because they deal with concrete a couple of times in their life. Customers might think it is time to replace a concrete driveway, when the expert finds that the concrete is in excellent shape. We have had customers think they needed driveway replacement, we were able to resurface the driveway instead. This kind of recommendation saves the customer over 50% on replacing the entire concrete driveway.

Assessment

Your concrete expert visits your driveway replacement project site you will doubtlessly notice a difference right away. Your expert will start by talking with you about the project and immediately taking pictures and video of the project site. We want to make sure that we get as many eyes on the project as possible. When your concrete expert submits the project notes for review, your project site is reviewed by other in-house concrete experts. We do this to make certain that every possible mitigation and preparation is considered.

For example, down spouts seem to get ignored. In the image above, you can see a concrete driveway replacement project wherein the driveway has heaved over 2". At the garage door entrance, you can also see a down spout that drains out onto the driveway. The down spout needs to directed away from the concrete driveway. If not directed away from the concrete it will create "run off erosion" adjacent to the concrete and create a void underneath the driveway. The first concrete expert to review this project did not address the down spout. It was during the review process that we discovered this issue. We fixed the estimate for final delivery and the customer was not subject to a "change order" in the middle of the project.

Project Notes / Scope of Work

Customer communication is a keystone to successful completion of any project and this is the culture at Denver Concrete Inc. We continually ask our customers why they choose Denver Concrete Inc. over using other contractors. The answer seems to come back the same, "It was your reviews and then the project notes were so professional and useful." We invest significant time in every one of our concrete estimates. We start with the project notes, this is to make certain that the estimate and the scope of work to be completed are aligned. This is where we make certain that we are taking all of the customer's concerns into consideration. We want to deliver a comprehensive estimate the first time.

We have heard from prospective customers that they really appreciated the detail that we put into the project notes. They used these notes with other contractors so that they could obtain an "apples to apples" estimate and compare notes.

Denver Concrete Inc. encourages customers to use these project notes with other contractors. Because at the end of the day we are genuinely committed to helping "people". We cannot win every project. The more people we help the more projects we complete. It is amazing how that works, but it does.

How Do You Know It Is Time To Replace Your Driveway?

We believe the best thing to do is to get an assessment and recommendation from one of our in-house concrete experts. However, let's say you wanted to skip that and just get a quick idea as to whether or not the current driveway needs to be replaced. Candidly, if there are no tripping hazards and the concrete just has some fracture cracking throughout, it does not need to be replaced.

If your concrete driveway presents a tripping hazard as seen below for example, it would be time to replace the driveway. Matter of fact, the driveway pictured below should have never been allowed to get into this poor condition. Tripping hazards like this open any property owner to more liability than anyone would like to have.
