Residential Driveway Paving Services
Looking for concrete driveway contractors in Thorndale, PA?
Concrete is a strong, durable building material consisting of four main ingredients: cement, sand, stone, and water. The variations of these individual materials determine the overall strength, color, and appearance of the concrete driveway. Cement is the bonding, or hardening agent for concrete. Color is affected by the cement, sand and stone. “Cement is made by heating limestone with small quantities of other materials (such as clay) to 1450°C in a kiln. The resulting hard substance, called ‘clinker’, is then ground with a small amount of gypsum into a powder to make ‘Ordinary Portland Cement’, the most commonly used type of cement in Thorndale, PA.
