Winona Concrete – Residential
Concrete is perfect for driveways, patios, steps, fire pits, garage floors and more in Winona. 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!
