If your old driveway is starting to look a little worse for wear, it may be time to install a new one. Before everything gets started, though, you may want to know what’s going to happen. Knowing what to expect during the concrete driveway installation process will help you be prepared.
Old Driveway Removal
Before anything else happens, your old driveway will have to be removed. This usually requires jackhammering and other methods of breaking up the old driveway. Be prepared for the noise and the commotion of the removal so you aren’t surprised by it.
Form Placement and Pouring
After the old driveway has been removed, the concrete team will then place the forms for your new driveway. These forms hold in the concrete and shape it. After that, the new driveway will be poured and smoothed.
Before you can use your new driveway, it will have to be cured. The curing process is different from drying as the concrete will be dry but it has to set completely before any weight can be put on it. Generally, the curing part of the concrete driveway installation process takes between seven and ten days.
