Concrete Driveway Contractor Services
Greenlawn Georgia, LLC is a full-service concrete driveway contractor in North Fulton, Gwinnett and Forsyth Counties in north Georgia.
When home or business owners observe cracked, unsightly, heaving concrete with cracks they know it is time to replace the driveway. Heaving refers to cracks that go all the way through the concrete causing one side to be higher than the other.
As water gets between the cracks and freezes and thaws, this problem will continue to get worse. This can also happen when the base below the concrete was not well compacted and stable prior to laying concrete. As your vehicles drive up and down the driveway each day it puts stress on the driveway over time.

New Concrete Driveway Installation
A new installation of a concrete driveway in the Gwinnett, North Fulton or Forsyth area is a great way to extend your parking area. A narrow drive can be a nightmare to navigate, especially when family or friends arrive. New installation to widen your driveway is a creative way to extend the use of your property, and to increase its value.
The Concrete Driveway Installation Process
We take great care in the process of installing your new concrete driveway. First, we make sure the soil is well compacted. This helps to ensure that the concrete sits level and will stay that way.
We then measure and frame out the size and shape of your driveway. We put reinforcing bar in the open cavity. Reinforcing bar works to help stabilize the concrete and give it the right amount of rigidity and durability over time.
We then pour the driveway using the PSI or pounds per square inch that is required for your specific needs. We pour driveways at a depth of 4 inches minimum. There are instances when this may be thicker such as for use with heavier vehicles.
As the concrete begins to cure, we put expansion joints or relief points in the concrete. Without joints in the concrete it will crack due to weather induced expansion and contraction. We place joints every 10- 12 foot apart (depending on the actual size) with a center joint in the middle.
Estimating Concrete Driveway Prices
Concrete driveways and patios in Gwinnett, Fulton and north Forsyth cost between seven and twelve dollars a square foot. Here are 4 factors to consider when determining where your costs will lie.
- Are you going to need your old driveway or patio broken up and removed or are you starting with a new installation? This affects the amount of labor and disposal costs that we will incur.
- What is the access to the location you are looking to have poured? This question addresses whether the concrete truck can drive straight to the site or if other equipment is needed to pour the area. If access to the area is limited, then we can often use a concrete buggy, for smaller projects. For a larger project with accessibility issues, we order a concrete boom pump and a special mix to achieve quality flow, which will affect the cost of the driveway or patio.
- How does the size of the project affect the price per square foot? The larger the area the lower the price per square foot. The inverse is also true — the smaller the area the higher the price per square foot. This is because the concrete trucks charge what is known as a light load fee. This means that if it is below a minimum number of cubic yards, then an additional fee is added to compensate for their costs in delivering to the project.
- How do sloping grades and curved designs affect the cost? Expect your concrete driveway or patio’s costs to increase if the design, shape, or grade changes are significant. As a rule, costs rise when the driveway or patio being installed is in an area that slopes, has storm water drainage issues, or requires resolution of other design or installation issues.
