Benefits Of A Concrete Driveway In South Auckland
Concrete driveways are better than other driveway surfaces in a number of ways, such as:
Concrete is a very strong material that can stand up to a lot of foot traffic and harsh weather.
Unlike other driveway surfaces, concrete doesn't need to be sealed or resealed on a regular basis. This makes it a good choice for busy homeowners who don't have a lot of time to spend on upkeep.
Range of styles:
Concrete can be coloured and stamped to make a wide range of finishes and designs. This makes it easy to make a driveway that matches the style of your home.
Concrete driveways can be less expensive than other driveway surfaces in the long run.

FAQs For Our South Auckland Concrete Driveways
On an accessible residential site, a typical driveway in Auckland costs between $120 and $450 per square meter. This includes labour, material delivery, sub-base laying, concrete pouring, and finishing touches. It also includes everything from start to finish. Concrete driveway cost estimates frequently take the following factors into account:
- How big is your driveway?
- The slope of your driveway or the area you want to concrete
- How much digging is required?
- Different concrete materials are chosen
- Drainage planning
- The installation site's condition and the amount of preparation required
- Removing concrete, garbage and dirt
- Performing the installation, which requires some manual labour in places where machines cannot reach
A few pricing considerations: If your quote is extremely low, all prices per square meter may not have been considered.
When the total cost is added to the low per square meter pricing, the price is typically much higher per square meter.
We intend to give you an all-inclusive price per square meter, but the exact cost cannot be determined until we arrive on site and assess the scope of the work.
When looking for a dependable, trustworthy, reputable, and high-quality concreter, consider the following factors:
- Client testimonials, previously completed cases, and before and after photographs
- Understanding of concrete driveway planning and installation methods
- Years of experience laying concrete and installing driveways
Unfortunately, a newly laid concrete driveway will deteriorate over time. A skilled concrete worker will take the following steps to reduce the likelihood of your driveway cracking:
- Before installing the driveway, make sure the site is properly prepared
- Set up controlled joints
- Have a strong steel foundation
- Cut concrete into pieces or add metal reinforcement to allow it to expand and move
- Have plenty of high-quality concrete on hand
- Allow at least one week for drying before returning to normal traffic; for heavy equipment, allow 14-30 days. Keep heavy equipment, tracks, and garbage cans away from your concrete driveways
The thickness of a concrete driveway is affected by the soil in which it is placed, local industry standards, and the frequency with which heavy vehicles use your driveways.
For typical expansive soils, the majority of contractors will lay a 7.5 to 15 cm structural base and pour 4 to 6 inches of concrete. Heavy vehicles should be avoided on your driveway whenever possible because they can seriously damage it.
To reduce the likelihood of your new driveway cracking, try to avoid:
For typical traffic, at least a week.
Large trucks or equipment require at least 30 days, and heavy equipment requires 14 to 30 days.
Moving vans and skip bins, due to their weight, can crack a concrete driveway. Try to keep them off your concrete driveway whenever possible.
Concrete driveways must be sealed to extend their useful life. They should be sealed at least every two to five years to keep them looking new and extend their lives.
The driveway process usually requires three visits and takes about 1-2 weeks from start to finish:
- Preparing the driveway
- Sealing the concrete pour
Additional steps for obtaining council approval and a site visit for council crossings and footpaths may lengthen the process.
As a result, it is recommended that paperwork with the council be completed as soon as possible in the process.
Yes, you will need to do the footpath and crossing concreting as part of the CDC or council approval process.
Your driveway contractor will work with local council to coordinate permit applications, schedule inspections, and assist you in obtaining permit and approval from council.
