Designing Your Concrete Driveway With Ease

Today’s concrete can be formed into practically any shape, texture, pattern, or color. It’s a way of adding a new dimension of quality and elegance to your home, at a reasonable cost.

When designing your concrete driveway, you should always take your budget into consideration. The cost of a typical 1,000 square foot driveway can run anywhere from $2,600 to $3,500 depending on the complexity of the new concrete driveway.

Your new concrete driveway should be fully functional above all else. If you’re not going to be able to use it, it’s not going to do much good. One of the biggest problems we see when called to install a new concrete drivewayis the radius (Curve) that doesn’t allow vehicles to properly make a turn. When designing your new concretedriveway, make sure you have enough room on both sides of the car.

When designing your concrete driveway and planning the width, we suggest 9-10 feet wide for a single car garage and 18-20 feet for a double car garage. This doesn’t mean you have to keep the 18-20′ width all the way to the end, but it should give you an idea of how wide your new concrete driveway should be when parking 2 cars next to each other.

When designing your concrete driveway, you should also allow the driver and passengers of the vehicle to exit on both sides with an easy exit. If it’s necessary to remove a tree and some shrubs, you’ll need to decide which is most important to you.

Decorative concrete stamping is an exotic and colorful way to enhance ordinary concrete paving, but the cost can be quite considerable compared to a regular broom finshed concrete driveway. Essentially, the driveway is cast-in-place concrete which has been colored and imprinted with a pattern designed to look like ashler slate, plain slate, brick, tile, cobblestone, or other various patterns. Textured finishes include bromide, swirl, or exposed aggregate.
