    This week at North East Driveways, the project in Middlesbrough was supposed to be a 158 sq metre  brush finish plane concrete driveway. However, after being impressed by the quality and workmanship of our previous concrete Imprint driveway installations, the customer opted instead for a pattern imprinted concrete driveway in classic grey and in the pattern of a large regal ashlar. You can also join our Face book page for up to date projects here at North East Driveways Face Book Page   Watch Video Of Full Works In Middlesbrough. At the start of the job we had to remove the old tarmac driveway and dig out the ground ready for the sub base. Once the waste was removed we stone up and tracked the ground and installed some drainage.   More Services Offer By North East Driveways. Concrete Block Paving   Garden Bin Storage.

You can check out our video dairy vlogs at our Youtube channel Here At North East Driveways Youtube Channel      The Imprint Concrete Article. THE FIRST POUR As this was a 158 sq metre project, we split the concreting pours in two, straight down the middle so as to have ample time for colouring, magging, frezing and printing the job on each day. THE EXPANSION JOINTS When installing an imprinted concrete driveway or patio, expansion joints are included to control cracking. Creating expansion joints usually involves saw cutting the concrete after the first pour. But as the pours on this job where done in two parts, we used the middle line as one of the expansion joints. THE WASHING OFF PROCESS After concrete pours have been done and printed, the excess release agent needs to be washed off before it can be sealed. This usually begins on this day the forms would be pulled out. However, on this project, the surrounding outside walls meant that no form work was required.   THE FINISHED PROJECT Check out our other blogs at North East Driveways Blogs as we regularly like to post and write about our work and jobs.

      Here at North East driveways i like to show some of my latest projects whether there block paving, Imprinted concrete, paving flags or joinery.   The Starting Point   Here we have a picture of the original existing patio and my aim is to show you the transformation from old patio to the new patio.   Dig Out Process   With all pattern imprinted concrete jobs preparation is the key to a good job as you can see in this picture we have done the form work and installed the drianage and dug out and stone up the surface area.    Printing The Concrete When printing the surface area the more attention to detail is what gives your surface the more realistic element to paving.   Once A Surface Area Is Printed   After surface area is printed the concrete will need time to cure before the washing off stage begins.   Washing Off   At the stage of washing off the surface area is cleaned down and all shuttering is pulled and expansion joints are cut in.   Finished Project.    After the surface area is all clean down and dry the surface is sealed. If you would like to know any more information on then please don't hesitate to give me a call here at North East Driveways.
