How to Update Your Concrete Driveway

So you’ve decided it’s time to get rid of your old cracked driveway. The slabs are uneven, the pot hole formation is getting real, and you need to add another parking spot for visitors. Have no fear, the experts from CMC Solutions have provided a step by step guide on how to get that driveway updated.

Step 1: Contact A Trusted Concrete Contractor

When it comes to important jobs like maintaining your home’s value, you want to make sure you find a knowledgeable professional to manage the job. You can start by looking through reviews on Thumbtack, Google or even Facebook. A certified project management contractor, like the team at CMC Solutions, will keep your project on time and on budget; delivering lasting results to your home’s value.

Step 2: Request a Free Driveway Replacement Bid

Top rated concrete contractors will never give a flat price for a replacement. In fact, our team at CMC Solutions customizes a bid for each job based on your unique needs. Our clients enjoy:

  • Enhanced Curb Appeal

  • Improved Drainage

  • Grading and Leveling Fixes

  • Parking Expansion

  • ADA Compliant Features

Be weary of unqualified contractors requiring a hefty deposit. At CMC, we require a simple contract signature and begin to order your supplies.

Step 3: Concrete Permit Submissions

If your driveway update requires any sidewalk or approach updates, the city requires a permit to begin work. When the permits are submitted, there is a basic two-day inspection lead time to get the city to approve the project. No worries though, as the home owner and our VIP customer, you will not have to worry about any of this yellow caution tape, our certified construction team will do all of the paperwork for you.

Step 4: Schedule Your 1-Day Driveway Replacement

When you hire certified project managers to replace your concrete, 95% of the time your driveway can be torn out and poured back the same day. Hammering usually will begin around 7AM, followed by removal, grading, forming, rebar, and grading checks all completed before lunch. The concrete then arrives to be poured, leveled, finished and the team is out of your way by 5PM.

Step 5: Concrete Curing & Your Improved Curb Appeal

Within a week’s time you are sitting back and enjoying your new leveled concrete driveway. Just read Larry’s review from Facebook about his concrete replacement:

Tommy and his team replaced every inch of concrete outside my house last July (2017) - every single day now for over a year I've looked at it and thought "I am so darn happy we did this"! They did every thing we asked for and went out of their way to work with our timeline. It's held up great so far!

High-quality concrete allows home owners to walk on the concrete after 24 hours. However, passenger vehicle weights will require a 7 day cure time before use.
