Tearing out and replacing a driveway in Denver Colorado is gonna be much different than it would be replacing a driveway in Grant Colorado. Concrete prices change from region to region indefinitely from state to state. The pricing seen here is for the Denver Metro area. Pricing could be similar in other Metro areas inside of Colorado but how much does it cost to install driveway it is difficult to say. According to www.thumbtack.com, “the national average cost to install a concrete driveway” is roughly about six dollars a square foot. If you have looked at our other posts and pages about the cost of a concrete driveway replacement, you’ll see that for the average driveway (two car driveway about 38 foot in length by 16 foot wide) the average price per square foot is about seven dollars per square foot.According to various online sources, there is quite a spread of pricing for concrete installation in Denver. Some of the websites we found quoted prices as low as $2.85 per square foot while others stated that the best price would be around $10 per square foot. Some of the websites included base preparation and rebar and others did not even make mention of it. It would seem that the information is all over the place. In the end what's important is that the price you're looking at is defined and you know what you're going to be getting. Some contractors seem to focus on a price "per square foot" that is not all-inclusive and so some of the services included in their per square foot price might not be as inclusive as what you get from other contractors. Most of our customers have explained to us that when they are shopping for a contractor to replace their concrete they are assuming that they will get a "turnkey" solution. It's always important to remember that not all contractors work the same.

There are always so many different variables that need to be looked at when looking at or reviewing any concrete project especially with driveways as they are "functional" pieces of concrete these are not just concrete patios for a BBQ from time to time. These are functional pieces of concrete that actually serve a purpose, there will be heavy equipment (cars) parking and driving on this new driveway. It's important that the driveway is built to stand the test of time. So with that being said it's important that whatever contractor you work with addresses any downspouts or water near the driveway that poses a potential hazard for a new concrete installation. A new base, for pouring the new driveway on. How will the base be prepared? What kind of concrete will be used? All these types of questions are definitely things that to be addressed by your contractor.
