Decorative Concrete Driveways - Pricing and Installation Cost Notes

Homewyse cost estimates are approximate ranges for basic work in typical conditions. The estimates should only be used for preliminary planning. Homewyse estimates are NOT substitutes for quotes from qualified vendors. Homewyse strongly recommends that you contact reputable professionals for an accurate assessment of work required and costs for your project - before making any decisions or commitments.

  • Decorative Concrete Driveway cost estimates may require an onsite inspection. Usually these estimates will be "free". You should expect any estimate to be presented with an in-depth sales pitch/presentation.
  • The homewyse cost estimates include all typical costs for site preparation to achieve uniform driveway thickness, proper finish surface height and effective water runoff; placement of form boards and expansion joints at spacing not to exceed 12 feet; setting concrete reinforcement; pouring, settling, leveling, uniform imprinted surface finishing of 4 inch thick, 3500+ psi concrete.
  • The homewyse Decorative Concrete Driveway cost estimates do not include costs for significant regrading or excavation, or demolition and removal of existing hardscape.
  • Higher priced Decorative Concrete Driveways may include features/attributes that include more complex surface design and coloring, higher quality surface finishing and better warranty.
  • Low to High labor cost range differences are in part due to variations in work load, job location and seasonal wage rates.
  • The variation in installation costs for complex configurations (non-rectangular shape, many corners, multiple levels, etc.) can be considerable. For accurate cost estimates, collect detailed bids from several qualified professionals.
  • To maximize the payback of your Decorative Concrete Driveway investment, use materials and installation quality appropriate for your home and neighborhood - but be careful not to over improve. Less expensive alternatives to Decorative Concrete Driveways may provide a better return on investment.
  • Reduce total project cost by having multiple vendors bid on the same, detailed work specification of your Decorative Concrete Driveway project.
  • Save on installation costs by combining similar jobs and by being willing to have your project completed during low demand periods for the vendor/installer.
