Concrete Crossovers Melbourne
We have been working with local councils for years and our pours meet specifications the first time every time.
What is a vehicle crossover?
At Skyco Group, we’ve been working closely with the Melbourne council for years to ensure all our projects follow the local regulations and specifications. Driveway crossovers is another name for driveways, and you might think that the task is as simple as pouring some concrete slabs and voila!
It’s not as simple as that, as there are many safety considerations and careful planning done in the background to ensure your vehicle crossover isn’t responsible for any accidents down the line.
Furthermore, vehicle driveway crossovers in Melbourne have become vital elements in residential and commercial buildings, as they streamline the drive between the garage and the road.
You can expect driveways in commercial buildings to get more traffic than their residential counterparts. For this reason; there are extra measures that need to be implemented to ensure the driveways’ durability and longevity.
Let’s not forget the aesthetic aspect, as the vehicle crossroad can be the first striking design feature that people notice about your house at first glance.
At Skyco Group, we offer plenty of customization features, including choosing the colours and textures of your cement driveway to match the same modern or vintage vibes of your property.
We also use special exposed aggregate concrete that fits perfectly in driveways. The concrete’s surface is polished in a way that makes it less slippery, enabling your vehicle to maintain excellent traction while getting into or out of the garage.
The non-slippery features are essential to avoid any potential traffic accidents, as you get to the paved road.
Melbourne Crossovers Services
Many people get garage extensions down the line as the number of the family’s vehicles grows. You need to extend your current crossover as well, so it becomes more convenient for different vehicles to get in and out of the garage.
A crossover widening follows the same construction principles used while laying the original driveway. Our Skyco Group professionals will start by excavating the extension site and laying down the base. Then, the exposed aggregate concrete layer will be laid on top. This will be followed by curing and polishing stages before your driveway becomes ready.
The trick here is to get the new extension to feel as if it has been there all along. You don’t want any gaps between the new and original crossover, making your drive from the garage to the paved road bumpy and inconvenient.
Any changes in your concrete crossover location require a prior permit from the local Melbourne council to ensure the new driveway follows the city’s safety regulations. At Skyco Group, we do all the paperwork on your behalf and proceed with the construction work once the permit is in hand.
Crossover relocating involves removing the old one and laying the foundation for a new driveway in another position. Getting rid of your existing driveway involves specialized machinery to cut through the concrete slabs without damaging any surrounding structures.
We then take care of all the demolition waste and help you clean up the old driveway’s site, before moving on to constructing the new crossover.
Driveway Crossover Reinstating
If you’re pleased with your current driveway’s location, but you’re frustrated with how it looks from accumulating all those cracks and stains over the years, we can get your crossover instated.
We opt for resurfacing techniques first as they’re more affordable and resource-saving. Instead of breaking down your existing crossover and building a new one from scratch, we only target the damaged areas.
The cracked topmost layers are removed without affecting the surrounding surfaces, then modified concrete polymers are laid down to fill in the gaps.
We work with your council to ensure a smooth and headache free operation.
