Process and Prices for Our Concrete Driveways
Step 1) Free Consultation
In order to discuss your concrete driveway, our team will meet on your site. If your driveway only requires a repair, it can be less expensive. We will make a recommendation depending on your needs, budget, and style. A scope of work breakdown will accompany our recommendation. You will understand exactly how each cost is determined.
Step 2) Area Preparation
We start working after accepting the final quote. First, we prepare the space by ensuring that there is adequate Hardfill to serve as a sturdy base course. If necessary, we will compact the ground there to make sure we have a solid base. This will reduce the possibility of future movement and/or cracks.
Step 3) Marking The Driveway
Our team will arrive and mark the profile of your driveway. This is where we’ll pack everything up and where your new driveway will be installed.
We will install Grade 500c mesh on your driveway. The sheets range in size from 4.5 m to 2.5 m wide. We place them 65mm off the slab on a black plastic chair and overlap them by 1 run of 150mm. We make sure there is at least 65mm of protection on the exterior, away from the boxed material.
Step 4) Level Check
We use a laser level to double-check our heights after installing the mesh and boxes. This guarantees the proper fall and slopes to avoid water pooling.
Step 5) Concrete Pour
Typically beginning in the early morning, our concrete layers will pour and place the concrete. Depending on the size, drying, and curing times, pouring concrete can take anywhere between two and four hours.
Step 6) Finish and clean the driveway
We will clean up and wash the area after installing your driveway, leaving you with a stunning new concrete one.
Whats Included In The Cost Of Your Nelson Driveway?
01 – Pegs & Timber
To designate your boxing space, use pegs and loose boxing lumber. Pine pegs 600mm long and 50x50mm high. Typically, a packet of 50 pegs costs $45.00.
02 – Timber Cost
Depending on the quality of your driveway, we would use loose timber such as rough sawn pine boxing. At $8 per lineal meter, 150 x 50mm.
03 – Mesh Sheets
Depending on size, sheets of grade 500c mesh cost between $110 and $130 per. This ensures that your driveway’s foundation and structural integrity will last.
04 – Plastic Chairs
A package of 100 65mm black plastic chairs costs roughly $35. These are used to support the mesh.
05 – Concrete Cutting
After laying the driveway, pour standard 20MPA concrete, then 24 hours later, cut 3 meters of concrete. By doing this, concrete is kept from cracking. Every three meters, a professional saw cut is provided for $2.50 to prevent the concrete from splitting over time.
06 – Concrete Pour
Depending on the size of the driveway, a concrete pump truck will be scheduled. This might cost a load an extra $750-$900.
