Concrete has been used for driveways for a long time, but now it doesn’t need to be drab. Like patios, the concrete can be salt finished, have exposed aggregate or be stamped. The concrete driveway can also be stained or engraved to give the property great curb appeal. Among the more popular stamped patterns are cobblestone, English Yorkstone, fractured slate, fractured earth, ashlar and riverstone. They can be stamped in interlocking or European fan patterns or a pattern called embossing skin.

Why should you choose concrete as your driveway surface material? Concrete is desired for its clean look and long life span and is the preferred surface for many homeowners. Most contractors strongly advise homeowners to replace, rather than try to resurface, a badly scarred or pitted concrete drive. You can expect a 4-inch gravel base topped with 4 inches of concrete.
