Concrete is perfect for driveways, patios, steps, fire pits, garage floors and more in St. Paul. You can choose traditional grey concrete or jazz things up with the addition of color, texture and curves. Either way, choosing concrete for your home adds a touch of class you can take pride in! It is very difficult to tell the difference between decorative concrete and a mason laying stone or brick. Although they look similar, a mason laying stone or brick costs significantly more than concrete.
When you choose concrete for your driveway, patio, etc., you are making a wise investment! Did you know that concrete driveways last as long as 30 years and requires minimal maintenance? Blacktop (asphalt), on the other hand, requires more maintenance and major repairs or replacement can be required within 10 years of installation!

History of St. Paul, Minnesota
After the Louisiana purchase in 1803 where one hundred thousand acres of land was negotiated from the local Dakota tribes in 1805 for the purpose of establishing a fort. The territory sits on both banks of the Mississippi River beginning at Saint Anthony Falls until the Saint Croix River. Many settlers came and established themselves in the area due to the protection provided by the fort. At around the 1840s the community became an important trading center and a popular destination for settlers west bound. Father Lucien Galtier, a French Catholic priest was sent to establish a chapel in 1841. He named the chapel after his favorite, Saint Paul the Apostle. When the Minnesota Territory was established in 1849, Saint Paul was named as the capital of the new state.
