Laying the Foundation for Your Dreams
Allow a new concrete paver driveway or walkway to welcome you home.Schedule FREE Consultation
A custom driveway or walkway can change the way you feel each time you pull in. With all of the hardscape material selections offered, we’re able to complement the existing curb appeal your home already contains. Whether decorative pavers, Carvestone or something entirely custom, a beautiful driveway can be the final touch needed to set your home apart.
Over the years, we’ve completed thousands of driveways and elegant walkways and understand that our applications must extend beyond their aesthetic. While we understand beauty isn’t something you’ll sacrifice, we always look for a way of combining form and function. An Allied driveway will look beautiful the day we finish and will continue to look beautiful for many years to come.
As a Belgard Authorized Contractor, you’ll know that your partner comes with world-class training on cutting-edge installation techniques.
Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute Certified Installers benefit from the industry’s latest information, education, and training.
A driveway or walkway can make it easier for people to access your home, especially if the property is located on a busy street or in a hilly area. We’ll consider all of these items before we begin establishing elevations and drainage plans.
Improves Curb Appeal & Home Value
A well-designed and well-constructed driveway or walkway can enhance the overall appearance of your property, which can increase its value and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
A driveway provides a convenient and secure place for cars to park, reducing the need to park on the street or in a public parking lot. This can be especially useful for homeowners who have multiple cars or who frequently entertain guests.
Driveways & Walkways Details
The driveway is the first thing that visitors see when they arrive at your home. It sets the tone for the entire property and gives visitors a sense of what to expect. A well-designed and well-constructed driveway can be both functional and attractive, providing a safe and convenient place for cars to park and for people to walk.
The walkway leads visitors from the driveway to the front door, providing a clear and inviting path. It can be made of a variety of materials, such as pavers, brick, or concrete, and can be designed to complement the style of the house and the surrounding landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our biggest strength is a commitment to two related issues: installation quality and customer satisfaction. Both really begin with a commitment to process – every stage of it.
We’ll have a thorough pre-job walk-through. All the necessary permits will be secured, drainage and irrigation considered, inspections arranged, HOA approval received, layout confirmed and then, finally, work can begin. After completion, your project manager will perform a post-job walk-through.
Unfortunately, we have chosen to not offer these applications but we have many alternative solutions we can discuss.
We’re a member of the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute. You can relax knowing that we have done our homework so that you don’t have to. We have gone to great lengths to keep ourselves up to date on installation training and methods so that we make sure that every project is installed the way we’d want it in our own backyard.
Not typically. Because pavers consist of small, high-density units, they resist the long, unsightly cracks that can mar ordinary concrete.
Yes. Inch for inch, pavers are stronger and more durable than conventional surfacing materials. Pavers can easily handle the daily weight stressors of cars and trucks. In fact, they are currently being installed on airport runways!
At Allied, a typical pour has a 4” slab of concrete, 3/8” rebar on 18” centers and the slope determined by the on-site foreman. We’ll also take into consideration things like thicker concrete at the approach, drains that need to be installed, and sprinkler issues.
Depending on your environment, we can utilize an overlay system, remove and replace, or start from scratch. For a standard remove and replace, paver installation begins with the demolition of the existing surface. The existing hardscape—be it concrete, stone, or pavers—is removed. We then excavate down another 4″-6″ to create an 8″-10″ paver system. Your area will be built back up using a stabilized and compacted base material. We then apply a small amount of bedding sand to your pavers for the perfect base. An edge restraint is poured around the outside to help keep everything intact. Once the pavers are laid, we carefully fill the joints with polymeric sand—it looks like grout and will help inhibit weed growth and prevent sand loss and joint erosion.
Because we are one of the few contractors across the state to be recognized by Belgard, the homeowner is rewarded with a lifetime warranty on the paver itself. While a paver is a durable product to begin with, it must be installed by an authorized contractor in order to have the backing of the warranty given. The correct installation of the paver is what gives it its longevity.
While any cement product will change color over time or be impacted by outside forces, pavers are less likely to stain than other applications. Pavers are rated for less than 5% absorption, which is considerably lower than asphalt and poured concrete. This aids in resistance to oil and salt, both common destructive agents in the life and appearance of other paved surfaces.
There are varying degrees of required maintenance depending on the product selected and those can be discussed in greater detail at the time of sale.
