Building a driveway is about creating the style and useage that suits your needs.  Driveways come in several options.

Asphalt Driveways

Asphalt driveways are durable, can look attractive and less expensive than concrete and brick driveways.

Asphalt driveways require re-sealing periodically to prevent deterioration but can outlast a concrete driveway if properly maintained.  Hot temperatures can cause asphalt to become soft and pressed out of shape by heavy objects.

Concrete Driveways

A driveway made of concrete is the best, most stable and problem free driveway you can have. It can be poured in any configuration that you chose and its durable and strong and will match concrete sidewalks, etc.

Driveway Location and Design

You need to determine your driveway usage and decide on what dimensions best suite your needs. The length of the driveway will be determined by the setback of your house from the street and by the shape of your driveway's approach: straight, curved or half circled.

A driveway that forces you to back-out on to a blind curve or hill is dangerous.  Avoid steep and sloped driveways.

Driveway Construction

Constructing a driveway is a two stage process, first the ground must be excavated, lined with a base layer of crushed stone, and lastly a durable layer of either concrete or asphalt. Proper drainage is critical.
