What’s the average cost of concrete driveway replacement for homeowners in Kansas City?
Nobody wants the condition of their driveway to make all the neighbors recoil in horror every time they pass by it. Those cracks, weeds, oil stains, and even black mold can get rather hideous after a while. Of course, you may also want to fix your concrete driveway, before selling your house, to attract more buyers.
Whatever your motivation, having a budget and knowing the cost figures is essential. Johnson Concrete wants to help you form a better understanding of how much it costs to pave a new driveway for KC homeowners.
How Do You Assess the Cost of Concrete Driveway Replacement?
You can arrive at a rough idea of the cost of driveway replacement if you simply pull out some measuring tape and figure out the size of your driveway. Most of the price tag boils down to two big things: 1) The Market Cost of Concrete, and 2) Labor.
So, if you know your driveway dimensions, you can come up with a ballpark guess of the project cost. Since concrete works the same in other applications, you can also estimate what you’d pay to replace concrete patios, garage floors, and even sidewalks/steps.
Let’s take a hypothetical example using the typical American, two-car driveway size (which is about 600 square feet). If the prevailing cost of concrete is about $4 to $8 per square foot, you’d pay between $2,400 to $4,800 before adding in the labor costs.
The labor can be substantial if a contractor has to devote more time to leveling the soil beneath your current driveway. It also costs more to haul away all that broken concrete, of course.
How Damaged is Your Driveway?
Common sense tells you to make sure you really have a sufficiently damaged driveway before going to the trouble to replace the concrete. Keep your eyes peeled for these signs that your driveway needs a full replacement from a professional.
- You have massive cracks that seem to get worse every season. This often comes from expansion and contraction of the clay soil beneath the driveway concrete.
- It’s no longer possible to scrub away those horrendous car oil stains.
- Your current driveway isn’t terrible, but you’re searching for ways to add curb appeal. There are many other terrific reasons to upgrade to a new driveway for aesthetic purposes. It also helps boost your home value to have sturdy and flawless concrete.
