Decorative driveway options
We need to replace our driveway. It's about 500 sqft concrete and chipping, flaking, turning into gravel bad. Don't know thickness, but I'm assuming it has to be removed.
We have people coming to give estimates on stamped concrete, printed/dyed asphalt, and grading/prep for pavers (I can DIY laying and sanding pavers, just don't want to do the excavation and compaction).
Drivway has a mild slope and has two large trees flanking it, but the roots don't seem to have bothered the concrete. DC metro area, so figure a few snow/ice/freeze events, but not horrible.
My question to all the GW community:
Do you have a driveway of any of these types?
Pros / Cons?
Hidden things you wish you knew?
