Steps for getting the perfect concrete driveway

  • Step 1
  • Complete an online quote using our online quote calculator or call our office to arrange a FREE onsite measure & quote.
  • Step 2
  • Concept Concrete will provide you with a contractual agreement to sign. To lock and secure start date we require a 10% deposit via bank transfer.
  • Step 3
  • We will conduct an initial site inspection. Following this, we will begin site preparation. Site preparation may include excavation and drainage and will include crushed rock base, formwork and steel being installed as per the standards in the National Construction Code of Australia and Australian Standard 2870. Temporary barricades will be installed for site protection.
  • Step 4
  • Inspection will be completed by our Concept Concrete Registered Builder Practitioner. During inspection a series of checklists will be completed to ensure work meets our stringent guidelines and to ensure we maintain our high standards of workmanship, following the National Construction Code of Australia and Australian Standard 2870. After inspection is conducted, 50% pre-pour payment is required prior to concrete pour.
  • Step 5
  • Once payment is received the concreting process will begin. The concreting process includes pouring and exposing or finishing the concrete.** We will then cut the concrete within a 36 hour period. Following this we will arrange for your driveway to be acid washed and sealed.
  • Step 6
  • We will return to do a final inspection to ensure our high standards of workmanship are met. Your final payment of 40% is required at this time.
  • Step 7
  • Your concrete and formwork solution is now complete from Concept to Concrete.
  • * Please note that weather conditions can sometimes impact on our ability to complete work on your driveway. Where weather conditions result in us being unable to complete work on your driveway within the above time period Concept Concrete is not liable for any loss or liability incurred by you as a result.
  • ** You must not drive any vehicle on your driveway for at least seven days following pouring of the concrete. We recommend that you do not drive any vehicle on your driveway for 28 days following the pouring of the concrete. This is to prevent cracks occurring on your driveway. This is following National Construction Code of Australia and Australian Standard 2870 which specifies that concrete will not have its full strength until 28 days after pouring.
