We Form and Pour Concrete Driveways and Walkways
Concrete is an excellent, durable, long-lasting, maintenance free construction material and perfectly suited for the construction of driveways, walkways, and sidewalks. There are various types of concrete, different reinforcement methods, different finishes, and different thicknesses depending on your wants and needs. Contacting an experienced, local, company that specializes in concrete driveways and flatwork is the first step to getting that new driveway. Hiring a professional is key if you want your driveway to look good and last for many years.

How Much Does A Concrete Driveway Cost?
Concrete driveways are generally billed out by the square foot. The bigger the driveway the higher the cost. There are other variables that can affect pricing too such as the need to clear land or remove old concrete, properly leveling and grading for drainage, forming the driveway, the thickness of the concrete, and the type of finish that you would like. For a basic concrete driveway with a broom finish you're probably looking at $8 - $15 per square foot. This is a wide range but without seeing your project and the potential scope of work it's very hard to give you an accurate price.
How Thick Should A Concrete Driveway Be?
A concrete driveway should be a minimum of 4 inches thick. If your driveway will have to support heavy vehicles, large boats, large RV's or equipment then you will want to have thicker concrete. Moving from a 4 inch thick driveway to a 5 inch thick driveway will increase the cost but the load carrying capacity is also greatly increased. This is a good conversation to have with your contractor so they can listen to how your driveway will be used and determine what thickness will be best suited for your needs and situation.
Should Your Concrete Driveway Be Reinforced?
Reinforcement is common for concrete driveways, especially if they will be supporting heavy loads. Typically steel rebar or a steel wire mesh is used as reinforcement. Reinforcing the driveway won't entirely prevent cracks, but should they occur the driveway will still hold itself together. Reinforcement can significantly add to the cost of your driveway so again, it's best to discuss your needs and options with your contractor.
