Stonework

Stonework in Columbus

The interesting thing about stonework is that it can serve as a base for pavement or all on its own. At McCoy Paving, we understand the importance stone plays in creating the perfect base for concrete preparation, but we also know that stone makes excellent driveway material. So, whether you’re looking to get a crushed stone base for your new paved drive or prefer the simpler and more affordable style of a stone driveway, you can count on us to get the job done.

Concrete Preparation

When it comes to concrete paving, the finished product is only as good as the concrete preparation that went into the job. We want your new pavement to look great for years to come, which is why we prepare with crushed stone. Before pouring the concrete, we come in with crushed stone to create a level and solid base. Failing to do so leaves you with a soil base that is bound to settle unevenly. When this happens, your driveway will start to crack and buckle and eventually need to be replaced.

Another thing that a stone base provides is superb water absorption. When crushed stone is used for concrete preparation, it allows for water to absorb into the rock rather than remain stagnant in the concrete. When water has nowhere to go, it will quickly discolor your concrete and eventually lead to cracks.

Stone is the best base for concrete preparation because it provides your slab with an environment tailored for longevity. At McCoy Paving, we start with stone because our customers deserve nothing but the best.

Stone Driveways

Stone driveways might seem like a thing of the past, but there are many benefits despite their simple look. One of the best things about a stone driveway is that they tend to be substantially cheaper than going with pavement. However, this will depend on the type of stone you get, how deep you lay the stone, and how much preparation work is needed before we can pour the rock for your new stone driveway.

One of the other great perks about choosing a stone driveway is the relative ease and low cost of maintenance. Unlike pavement, stone has the freedom to move with the base of your driveway. Consequently, where pavement cracks when its base shifts, the stone simply moves along with it. When this happens, you can simply fill any unlevel spots with more stone–a far more affordable option than crack repair or new pavement. Whether you’re going for a specific look or just trying to save a few bucks, stone driveways are an excellent option.
