Concrete is an excellent driveway material
When the basic driveway design has been decided, the next step is site preparation. As an example, let’s assume that an existing asphalt driveway is being replaced with a traditional, broom-textured concrete driveway. In brief, this is how a typical site preparation works.
The existing thin layer of asphalt is easily removed with a fork-lift truck and carted away. The existing gravel base is reusable, but since the new concrete driveway will be thicker, some of the gravel must be removed to maintain proper elevation.
