If you have an old concrete driveway or parking area that you want to get rid of and you are wondering what it would cost to have new concrete put down, there are some things you want to take into consideration. You can save a lot of money on the project if you don't have the professionals take out the old driveway and if you get rid of the concrete on your own. Here are some of the things you can do yourself and costs to consider in advance.
Jack Hammer Rental
Find out how much it will cost to rent a jack hammer and then try to figure out how long it should take you to get the project completed. You have to take into consideration that you're going to be tired after you start to do it, and you may not be able to break up the entire driveway in one day. After the driveway is finally broke up, you'll have to remove all the concrete from your property in a safe, legal, and environmentally-friendly way.
Concrete Salvage Costs
Find a concrete salvage yard and see if you can get a bin dropped off at your house to fill with the concrete. They may be willing to take the bin back to the salvage yard for a set price. If not, you'll have to load it, take it, and then unload it, and you'll have to get a vehicle and then pay to dump the concrete additionally when you get there.

Concrete Replacement Estimate
Find out what it will cost to replace all the concrete where your driveway was. If you're looking to improve the driveway by getting a textured, stamped or designed concrete driveway, it is going to cost you more money. There are a lot of great designs and personalized ways you can make the driveway exactly how you want it.
Concrete is a great material for the driveway and taking the time to replace the concrete driveway on your home is a great way to improve the property value and the way the house looks from the outside. Talk with the concrete professionals and ask them what the savings is when you go out of your way to do all the removal of the old concrete driveway on your own and if you have all the old concrete removed from the property before they get there to start the project.Share
