Concrete Driveways

Home   ›   Driveways

If your driveway has reached the end of its lifespan, then installing a new concrete driveway will spruce up your home and boost your property value. Replacing an existing asphalt or gravel driveway with concrete is also beneficial. Concrete is more cost-effective, versatile, durable, and environmentally-friendly than other driveway materials. Below is a breakdown of the design possibilities.


Exposed aggregate driveways highlight the rock (aka aggregate) in the concrete mix and have a more natural, pebbly look. The amount of exposure can vary from fine to heavy, and each level creates a distinct effect.

Broom finished concrete is a classic and practical design that offers greater traction and slip resistance. Concrete brooms come in a variety of sizes with brushes that provide different levels of texture.

Colored concrete is a big part of what makes concrete driveways so appealing. The number of hues is virtually endless! Combining colored concrete with different textures, patterns, and finishes can add luster to both your driveway and your home.

Staining is another method of coloring concrete. Chemical stains can produce a stunning array of marbled, speckled, and variegated effects in color variations of black, brown, and blue-green.

Sawed or grooved patterns are created with a concrete saw or a hand tool. Oftentimes, each section or “field” of the pattern will be stained with a different color.


The four types of driveway layouts are circular, teardrop, curved, and straight. The layout that best suits your home depends on the driveway function, the position of your garage, your property terrain, and the desired look.


The cost of a new concrete driveway depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • Type of surface material
  • Coloring methods
  • Types of finishes or textures
  • Complexity of design
  •  Amount of excavation required
