Concrete Driveway & Retaining Wall
Overall Difficulty of Project
First on this driveway we removed the old railroad tie retaining wall. Then we had a durable stone wall replace the old one, with an attractive stair-step flow meeting the driveway.
Next we removed the old narrow asphalt driveway. This driveway was too narrow so we extended the length and width. This house also had water flowing incorrectly into the garage. We corrected the driveway’s pitch with the new concrete, thus re-directing the water’s drainage path away from the house, and averting a serious problem that could have lead to expensive water damage and the potential of a compromised foundation.
Finally we put a broom finish with a nice looking picture frame border that really dressed up the overall look.
The property looked like a totally different house from the installation of this high quality, long lasting sloping concrete driveway retaining wall combination, and easily added more resale value to the house than the cost of the project. Win win.
