Orellana Construction: Residential Concrete Is What We Do!
Concrete work is Orellana Construction’s specialty. Orellana performs many different home improvement services and even home building, but concrete is core to the company. Types of residential concrete work we do include:
- Exterior steps
- Pool patios
With the many designs for each of these categories, you have a lot to work with for your home’s hardscaping options. There are two main types of concrete we use for these installations, namely the following.
Poured Concrete: Pros and Cons
Poured concrete is easy to install and can be a flat, smooth, light-colored pavement at its simplest. Poured concrete will last for decades. On top of that, you have countless poured concrete surface design options. It can take on different colors and appearances. Some pavements look like flagstone, brick, or pavers. Some have motifs, patterns, or emblems stamped on them.
The downside is that if a crack forms in the pavement, it is more difficult to repair than if damage happens to concrete pavers.
Concrete Pavers: Pros and Cons
One of the benefits of concrete pavers is that they are very easy to replace without up-ending the whole pavement. Pavers are individual pieces that interlock with others to create one pavement. Concrete pavers are more affordable than natural stone pavers but can look just the same and stand the test of time quite well. Because paver driveways, patios, etc., are made of many separate pieces, it is easy and affordable to repair your pavement by replacing just those pieces.
The downside is that concrete pavers are more expensive than poured concrete.
Everything needs maintenance, and that maintenance generally looks like cleaning. You can hose down or use a pressure washer once a year to remove layers of dirt, moss, etc., from your concrete pavement to keep it looking new. It also helps maintain the concrete’s structural integrity, keeping dirt out of its pores.
As a porous material, concrete needs a sealant to guard it against moisture, dirt, spills, and more. If you seal the concrete every few years, you will prolong its life.
Residential Concrete Costs
The general cost to install a concrete driveway, patio, or another type of residential pavement in Maryland as of 2023 is between $5 and $15 per square foot. It depends on the kind of concrete you use, the size, and how elaborate it is.
