Driveway Design Considerations:
out zoning regulations and building codes of your city to find out how
wide your driveway can be at the street, as well as how far you need to
be away from property lines.
- Call to find out
where gas, water, electric and telephone lines are. Underground
sprinkler systems also need to be taken into consideration. You may
need to have a utility company move a line if it's in the way or change
the dimensions of your driveway.
- In designing your
driveway, consider the long-term maintenance. Asphalt needs to be
sealed frequently and damages easily. Concrete is the most durable, and
the most versatile, as it can be colored and stamped to look like
natural stone. Concrete is also the most cost effective over the long run.
- Slope a driveway towards the street so that water is directed away from the building
you already have a driveway that is structurally sound, but has small
cracks and chafing, consider having a resurfacing compound placed on the
existing driveway to create a new look. Click concrete driveway resurfacing to find out more about this process.
- If you would like to add some color, borders, or other designs to your existing concrete driveway, consider staining.
