I want my driveway to last without any cracks of any kind for at least a couple decades after it’s complete
When building my current home, I made the executive decision to build everything up to code & beyond. I heard about that couple who built the only beach house that withstood that type 5 hurricane that slammed Mexico Beach, Florida back in 2018. They asked the builders to take the home up to the code for type 5 storms & to surpass it to whatever degree they could. That beach house could legitimately withstand artillery fire because of how it was built. I was amazed seeing their segment on the news after that storm leveled every other property within a few hundred yards of their home. It gave myself and others the motivation to build my current home to excessive standards, hoping that I would also have a beach house that wouldn’t fall over from a slight wind gust. I asked to have the walls made out of concrete block, utilizing black bar steel rebar tie wire within. However, I designed my current driveway utilizing reinforced concrete containing galvanized, zinc coated steel rebar tie wire. Above the reinforced concrete is a lawyer of stone pavers arranged in geometrical patterns. The zinc coating on the galvanized steel rebar tie wire prevents moisture from penetrating the steel & corroding it past the point of failure. I want my driveway to last without any cracks of any kind for at least a couple decades after it’s complete. Some might call myself and others silly for using steel rebar tie wire in my driveway, & even crazier for buying galvanized rebar of all things. They would say I could have used black bar steel rebar tie wire instead.
