We use a premium blend of concrete, which is not only durable but also resistant to the freeze-thaw cycles typical in Minnesota. This ensures that the concrete aprons we lay remain intact and functional for years, with minimal cracking or heaving. Our skilled professionals employ meticulous installation practices, including proper ground preparation and drainage planning, to withstand the seasonal shifts.

The Importance of Concrete Aprons

Concrete aprons play a critical role in residential and commercial properties, acting as a functional and aesthetic bridge between different surfaces. Typically located at the juncture where a driveway meets a street or a garage, these aprons serve as a crucial transition zone that bears the brunt of vehicle traffic. They not only enhance the overall appearance of a property by providing a neat, finished look but also contribute significantly to the longevity and integrity of the driveway. By effectively channeling water away from the garage and foundation, concrete aprons prevent water damage and soil erosion, crucial for maintaining the structural integrity of the building. Additionally, they offer a stable and durable surface for heavy loads, reducing the risk of damage to the driveway and surrounding areas.


What is a Concrete Apron?


A concrete apron is a flat, durable surface made of concrete, typically located at the transition point between a driveway and a garage, or where a driveway meets a street. Its primary function is to provide a stable and strong surface that can withstand frequent vehicle traffic and heavy loads. The concrete apron helps in directing water away from buildings to prevent water damage and soil erosion, and it also serves an aesthetic purpose by offering a clean, finished look to the driveway or entryway. This structure is essential in maintaining the integrity of the driveway and the adjacent structures, especially in areas with variable weather conditions.
