Concrete Work on the driveway.

  • Break up the concrete driveway in front of the garage, including the little walkway at the side door of the garage towards the east wall of the house. Saw cut the concrete sidewalk near air-conditioning unit, then break up the driveway on the north side of the house to the asphalt driveway. Saw cut approx. 16 ½’’ by 5’ of uneven asphalt driveway and break it up for the extended part of the new concrete driveway. Break up the sidewalk in front of the house from the driveway to the front steps of the house, including bottom landing.
  • Excavate soil 2” max deeper than 5” depth for compacted gravel that will be laid under the concrete on the driveway area to get the proper pitch away from the house. The proposed excavated 2” extra depth is because of new concrete driveway being a lot lower than existing soil grade in the yard (especially in the backyard). The new pitch of the concrete driveway will be accomplished by lowering the driveway at certain points. This will allow rain water to slowly drain away from the buildings due to hard elevation conditions. When removing more soil than proposed there will be additional charges to dispose of the soil and grade it (not including seeding new grass). The additional estimated charge would be approx. $1,000.
  • Frame up and lay out 5” of compacted gravel on the new concrete driveway and 4” for the new sidewalks.
  • Lay out steel wire mesh on the gravel for new concrete driveway.
  • Pour new concrete driveway using 4000psi 6 bag mix 5” thick and pour new concrete sidewalks 4” thick, pitching them away from the building walls.
  • Apply all necessary expansion and crack control joints on the driveway. Max span between the joints will be 6’ apart on the small concrete areas and 8’ on large concrete areas. There is approx. 1334sqft of concrete work area.
  • Clean the property and haul away debris.
  • Owner supplies 3 copies of plat of survey and contractor gets the driveway permits. Use sand, not salt, on the new concrete as salt will damage the surface.
