Significance

Homeowners choose to install concrete driveways for reasons such as low maintenance, aesthetics and increased property value, according to Cement.org.

Benefits

Concrete driveways can be customised into a variety of colours, shapes and designs to fit your needs.

Size

Standard one-car concrete driveways are at least 200 square feet, according to Drivewaytips.com, but actual size will vary.

Cost

Concrete is usually £1.90 to £6 per square foot, so a 600-square-foot driveway would cost between £1,170 and £3,900 just for the concrete, according to Costhelper.com. Coloured concrete is about £3 to £13 per square foot, or £1,950 to £7,800 for a 600-square-foot driveway.

Considerations

Concrete driveways start with a gravel base, so expect to tack on an additional 50 cents to £1.30 per square foot, or £195 to £780 for a 600-square foot driveway, as stated on Costhelper.com.

Additional Costs

You must also factor in the costs of labour, planning, complications such as slope and the removal of an old driveway if applicable.
