Driveways can be made from many different elements. Aggregate and poured concrete are the most popular in areas such as Brentwood and Franklin, TN. Aggregate drives are usually brown or gray in color, have rock showing through and have a sheen when sealed. The mixture typically contains concrete, sand, gravel and crushed stone. Aggregate driveways are cleaned the same as the smooth concrete seen in both residential and commercial.

Why is your Clean & Seal the Best in town?
Sealing your aggregate or concrete driveway is not a necessity but is recommended. Most driveways on new homes are not sealed by the contractor due to added cost. Using the proper sealer has long and short term benefits. Short term, if you use a topical sealer, you will have a nice sheen that will definitely add curb appeal. Long term, a sealer can prevent or minimize cracks. One reason for driveway cracking is Freeze Thaw Weathering. This is when temperatures fluctuate from below freezing to above freezing. This allows water to seep into any surface when temps are above freezing, then when it drops below 32 degrees this water freezes and expands. The force of the expansion creates cracking. When temperatures stay close to the freezing mark the water does not have a chance to evaporate and continues to exacerbate the situation.
For aggregate, concrete and stone
Acrylic Aggregate Sealer and other topical sealers will form a film on top and will not allow moisture to penetrate. This film also creates a slick surface that dirt and oils do not adhere to as easily. This makes homeowner maintenance much easier. With garden hose pressure you will be able to keep your driveway cleaner longer. Our commercial grade sealers are guaranteed to protect your property and enhance the beauty for many years. Note: The aggregate sealer used on your driveway is the same sealer chosen by Opryland Hotel after the 2010 Flood. We sealed all interior walkways and majority of the outside walks. We were proud to know they agreed that we were using the best in town!
Penetrating sealers do not leave a film on top, thus not changing the appearance at all. These do not create a sheen and do not leave the surface slippery when wet. These are great for pool decks, natural stone and white concrete driveways. As you see in the picture, these still form a seal and do not let moisture intrude.
