How Thick Should a Stamped Concrete Driveway be?
It depends on where and how your space will be used. The thickness of your stamped concrete includes the foundation consisting of at least 4 inches of clean stone. We typically use 5-6 inches of 4,000 psi fiber reinforced concrete for a stamped concrete driveway. For additional strength, we also use 6″ x 6″ wire mesh reinforcement and a 3′ on center rebar mat throughout the areas being poured. Proper construction and control joints are used to help reduce any shrinkage cracks that may occur in your stamped concrete driveway.
What is the Average Cost for a Stamped Concrete Driveway?
Stamped concrete is merely a fraction of the cost of natural stone, brick, or pavers. Expect it to be around half the price of building with traditional materials. But the saying holds true “you get what you pay for.” Stamped driveways are still a quality long-term investment as they typically cost around $12-$18 per square foot.
What are the Advantages of Stamped Concrete over other Materials?
The most notable advantage is the cost. It’s not only far cheaper than other materials, but it’s an investment that can actually increase your home’s value. But while it costs almost half of what natural materials cost, it’s no less durable. In fact, stamped concrete can last over 25 years if properly installed and maintained. It’s a win-win.
