If you’re a Melbourne homeowner looking to make the front of your property look more practical and pleasing to the eye, a concrete driveway might well be the way to go.

You might be wondering whether to pave or concrete your driveway—and we believe we have the answer.

Concreting is a better alternative to paving as it requires less maintenance and it’s generally far more durable.

There are some real perks to having a concrete driveway—and as one of Melbourne’s most trusted concrete experts—we’re going to tell you what they are right now.


First of all, concrete driveways are incredibly functional. With a smooth yet grippable surface, concrete driveways are designed to make parking and walking easy even in difficult weather conditions.

It’s likely that you use your driveway on a regular basis which means that you want something that is functional and reliable—concrete delivers on both counts.

Strength & maintenance

As mentioned earlier, concrete driveways are hugely durable and usually last for at least 20 years.

Not only are concrete driveways built to last, but as they’re not built with blocks or slabs, surface wear as well as weeding issues are far less of a problem—so maintaining them is easy.

These two plus-points combined result in cost savings overtime, offering an excellent return on investment.

Looks & value

Not only are concrete driveways strong and practical, but with the right design, they look stunning.

Concrete driveways look slick and stylish which, in turn, will enhance the looks of your home while offering guests or visitors an excellent first impression.

As concrete keeps its looks overtime, the front of your home will retain its appeal for years to come—a perk that can actually increase the value of your property. A real win-win.

In addition these amazing benefits, concrete driveways are also:

  • Affordable
  • Environmentally-friendly
  • Versatile & customisable
  • Increasingly popular for all types of home in and around Melbourne
