How can I estimate the cost of a cement driveway?


Answer by  fred19 (73)

Calculate the square footage of your driveway. This is done by measuring the length, width, and depth of the driveway and multiplying them together. This will give you square footage. The same formula is used for the stone. To calculate re rod just use length times width. Then go to a cement supplier and get a quote.

Take the length times the width of the intended driveway then multiply that by the thickness( typically 4 inches) to get yardage of concrete you need.

Measure the dimensions and head over to your local hardware store and start looking at prices for everything you will need.

There are some very shifty contractors out there in the world of driveway paving. These guys often try to take advantage of a persons desire to just get thier home the way they want it ASAP. Do not accept the first offer. Shop around and price compare, and tell contractors you are doing so up front.

The cost of a cement driveway will be anywhere from $5 to $15 depending on the type of cement you choose. You can choose from basic to decorative and color.


Answer by  sanityrose (2664)

On average the typical cement driveway cost $1-$3.50 per square foot. Determine the thickness you may need, the amount of parking spaces, and the 'lifespan' you expect. Take into account such items as sand, contractors fees, permits, gravel, and sealants. Don't forget a warranty that covers yearly repairs and treatments.

The best and most acurate way of estimating the cost of putting down a cement driveway would be to look up local services that you will seriously consider using, and ask them over the phone. This way you will know what your local prices are, which differ from area to area.


Answer by  Zaka (2315)

By the length to be covered, the inclination of the angle and the treatment of the edges, not to mention the kind of soil it will cover. Compare prices from at least four contractors.

You may refer to online websites or contact your local builder. As an estimate, you must know which material you are using. If you are using cobblestones, the cost tends to be high. Concrete is cost effective while materials such as gravel and asphalt are cheap alternatives. According to these choices, you can work out an average cost.
