Your driveway is one of the first things that people see as they drive or walk past your home. While there are many alternatives, a concrete one will last longer and remain strong and attractive. To get quality work done, you need to hire the services of a concrete driveway contractor. If installing a concrete driveway is a DIY project, you must plan everything to have enough time and manageable deadlines.

Outline the perimeter of your measured driveway with wooden stakes. Create temporary housing for your driveway and keep the concrete in place using anchored sturdy wooden planks. Dig out the top level to create a solid and level foundation upon which you will pour your concrete.
You may reinforce your driveway with concrete with steel mesh to make it stronger and help in distributing vehicle weight. Pour the concrete in even loads and then level and flatten it to create a smooth and consistent surface.
Use a coarse brush to create a non-slip finish by evenly running the broom across the driveway from one side to another. Make sure you stick to one direction in every stroke. Finally, water-cure your driveway for at least seven to 10 days before driving your car over it.
