Concrete Driveway FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right driveway concreter for your job

1. How do you build a concrete driveway?

There are several things to prepare and consider when it comes to concrete driveway construction. Driveway construction begins by preparing all the tools needed to make the building process efficient. Some of the construction tools used include a wheelbarrow, shovel, hand spade, spirit level and more.

In addition, it is important to check for underground utilities and complete land surveying before you start excavating the ground. Once the ground is excavated and levelled, aggregates such as soil and gravel can be added as a base. The thickness of the base should be at least 4 to 10 inches to ensure stability.

Once the base is ready, it’s time to add soil to fill and stabilise the base. Adding a thin layer of gravel can also secure the thickness of the base and enhance the structural stability once the cement is applied.

Driveway concreters can then add mesh or rebars to cover the base surface once it is settled. This can help reinforce the concrete driveway’s structural integrity by keeping it firm and robust. This process is crucial and recommended to be completed by experienced professionals. Concrete driveway suppliers also use formwork to ensure that no wet concrete can leak and ruin the driveway’s shape and form.

The next step is to pour the concrete once the reinforcements are placed. This process involves pouring the concrete against the form and spreading it out evenly across the area. Concrete driveway builders use different tools depending on the scale of the project to keep the building process fast and efficient.

Once the concrete is evenly poured and spread out, the driveway concreters can begin to smooth, level and groove the surface. This process can help prevent cracks and provide an aesthetic finish. The concreted area can then be left to cure and dry, where it can take a minimum of 1 to 3.5 weeks to ensure the concrete is fully cured. It’s best to not rush the curing process as this can weaken the concrete driveway leading to future problems.

 

2. How much does a concrete driveway cost in Australia?

On average, concrete driveways cost around $1,500 to $3,500. However, this cost depends on the scale, size and shape of the project. There are several factors that can affect the pricing like the required preparation, materials, type of concrete and driveway style. Adding a slope in your driveway can also increase the pricing.

 

3. Is it cheaper to complete an asphalt or concrete driveway?

An asphalt driveway costs about $2.50 to $4.00 per square foot. On the other hand, a concrete driveway costs about $4.00 to $6.00+ per square foot. While asphalt appears to be cheaper than concrete, there are several considerations that make concrete the best choice when it comes to building a driveway. Concrete is far more durable with a longevity of over 40 years, compared to asphalt with durability of 20 years.

 

4. What is the longevity of a concrete driveway?

A concrete driveway can last over 40 years. This can be achieved with proper maintenance, especially in regions with cold climates. Concrete tends to crack in areas with freezing temperature, hence proper maintenance should be applied. Concrete driveway resurfacing must be completed to seal any cracks and reinforce the driveway’s stability.
