Ivy Lea Construction’s professional concrete contractors give you a stunning look and solid surface anywhere in or around your home. From stamped driveways and patios to steps, pools, porches and more, we work with a wide variety of applications and techniques. Concrete is a highly versatile material that holds its shape in many situations and also displays many differing looks. We use modern techniques to manipulate the concrete surface and showcase your preferred design at a fraction of the cost.
Ivy Lea can enhance the look of your driveway, porch, patio, steps, or pool. Stampede concrete captures the looks and texture of natural stone, brick, slate or wood, and washed aggregate is another attractive option.
Stamped or washed concrete can display many textures including natural stone, brick, slate or even wood. Add this sophisticated look to any area in your home or revitalize old concrete surfaces with an imaginative new shine. We professionally pour or repair to suit your tastes and give you a long-lasting, resilient shine.
Concrete patios are more durable than wooden decks. Over time, wood rots, warps, and fades. The hassle of staining, painting and/or sealing the wood gives many people headaches. Nails can stick out of the wood and hurt people’s feet and hands. Concrete, on the other hand, doesn’t need much maintenance and doesn’t involve nails. Concrete is strong and durable. In a colder climate, concrete makes sense, and, as you probably know, Buffalo winters can be brutally cold, with snow, wind and ice.
If you’re thinking, “Well, I don’t want a boring concrete patio,” realize that Ivy Lea Construction has the ability to liven up concrete with color stains, textures/patterns, and curves. These days, concrete can even be made to look like brick, natural stone and wood!
Since concrete is a solid surface, it’s easier to maintain than, say, natural stones/paving stones, which may have grass and weeds sprouting up in between– meaning you have to always cut them down. And concrete, unlike wood, does not require you to stain and seal it annually. Plus, termites don’t attack concrete, but wooden decks? They love wooden decks.
