The Perfect Walkway
All of us wish to live in a house that gives out a great impression by setting it apart from the rest. The first thing that you or anyone else will see in your house is the walkway that leads to the front door.
A walkway is much more than just a path that takes you in and out of your house. It adds that aesthetic appeal to the place by adding a sense of grandeur to the place.
If you already have a walkway and wish to transform it then Eminent-Constructions are right here to assist you. We will turn that drab place in to an area where you would want to go again and again.
What is a Concrete Walkway?
Plain gray concrete installed in the walkway is an old site. Move over and give way to newly develop decorative concrete. It comes in stained, colored, molded as well as other personalized styles that are being used in stores, restaurants, malls, offices and homes.
Concrete is the most opted material for a walkway due to its versatility. It can give the look of natural stone, brick or tiles depending on your personal choice. Concrete walkways have become an area where you can show your artistic side.
Here are some concrete walkway design options to suit your individual requirements.

What if I already have an existing walkway?
There are many ways to pep up an already existing walkway. Eminent-Construction is one of the leading contractors of concrete walkway installation in Los Angeles and will provide with various options to upgrade your walkway.
1. Resurfacing the Walkway
If small cracks or chafing has appeared on your walkway than a small coat of resurfacing compound can be placed on it to hide the unsightly cracks. It can only be done if the concrete is structurally sound but if there is movement in the concrete, the best option is to tear it out and re-pour.
2. Stain the Walkway
In this process the top most layers will be colored to give a mottled or natural stone look. The stain will not have a uniform look as it combines differently with the areas of the concrete.
3. Overlay the Walkway
A thin coat of concrete is poured over the top so stamping and staining are both possible. Like resurfacing, overlaying too can be done only if the concrete is structurally sound.
As the leading contractors for concrete walkway installation in Los Angeles, we understand that a concrete walkway plays a key role in making your guest feel invited.
