The cost of a concrete driveway can vary depending on several factors such as location, size, thickness, and any additional features or finishes.
On average, a basic concrete driveway can cost between $12 and $60 per square foot. This cost can increase if the driveway is larger, thicker or if added features such as color, stamping or exposed aggregate are included.
So, for a standard size driveway of 500 square feet, the cost would be between $14,000 to $20,000. However, if you include additional features, the cost can increase to $8,000 or more.
It's important to note that these are just estimates and the actual cost can vary depending on your location, the complexity of the project, and the contractor you choose. It's always a good idea to get multiple quotes from different contractors to compare what each contractor is offering. For instance a 4" thick driveway may cost less and will not be suited for Canadian climate. Ideally for a concrete driveway or patio the concrete should be minimum of 5" and rebar steel rods should also be used.
