Driveway Dilemma; Contractor screwed up; WWYD??
We have a beautiful new driveway which unfortunately does not drain properly.
Contractor has said he will tear up and re pour the three lower sections of the driveway; closest to the house, and re-pitch it so that it will solve the problem. Trouble is, color will not match. They will do their best but it's like a dye lot thing; so there will be a difference. Any ideas on how to make this work? Maybe putting a border around new section? Make it a big enough difference that it looks intentional?? Never thought of the driveway as a design element but now looks like we may have to.
Here are photos with the house included so you can visualize the overall effect:
The top of the driveway is perfect and they did a good job re-grading a problem area there; so we would rather leave it alone, plus the agonizing thought of tearing up the entire thing (6" thick with wire) is pretty nauseating. Any ideas on an acceptable solution?
If anyone has photoshop skills here I would be forever grateful. Right now we are just shellshocked; the drainage issue in question isn't MAJOR but is not right and does need to be addressed.
