Concrete Driveways Installation In Brisbane

Stunning, simple and stylish, our concrete driveways are good for the environment, your bank account and your home’s value.

Plain concrete driveway or exposed aggregate?

A plain concrete driveway is just a smooth surface made of concrete. It’s simple, easy to install, and relatively inexpensive. Plus, it’s a durable and long-lasting option.


The minimum required thickness for your concrete driveway is 10 cm (4 inches), but if you are planning to use it for heavy machinery, it may be required to opt for a thicker concrete layer.
On the downside, plain concrete can be boring to look at, and it can be slippery when wet.


An exposed aggregate driveway is a bit fancier. It’s made of concrete, but it has small stones or pebbles exposed on the surface. It’s more attractive to look at than plain concrete and a bit more slip-resistant.


The downside is that it’s more expensive and more challenging to install than plain concrete. And if not done correctly, the surface can be uneven, and the aggregate can come loose.


So, it depends on your budget and preference, plain concrete is more cost-effective and easy to install, but the exposed aggregate is more decorative and slip-resistant but more expensive.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Questions & Answers

How much do concrete driveways cost in Brisbane?

A good rule of thumb to work by to get an estimate for your concrete job is $100 per m2 laid. This price can fluctuate significantly as it really depends on your particular project (accurate pricing can be acquired only through an on-site visit and quote).

Smaller jobs are priced individually based on requirements, difficulty and other factors.

Like you and me, concrete driveways are unique…just with a harder exterior. Price is mostly affected by design, size of the job, and ease of access to the job.

How long does it take to install concrete driveways?

Usually 1 to 3 days of work. This can be extended however depending on how long your concrete driveway will need to cure.

Our trades team will let you know exactly how long you need to wait so there’s never any guesswork from your end.

How thick should concrete driveways be?

4 inches. This is subject to change, but is a general rule of thumb. The thickness of your concrete slab is heavily dependent on its structural requirements.

Is it a small driveway that will be mainly used as a path, or will you be parking your work truck on it as well as your partner's car every day?

Our expert team always guarantees that the thickness and structural integrity of your concrete driveway meets and exceeds Australian regulations and standards.

Is a concrete driveway a good investment?

Yep! In fact, many of our clients are installing new concrete driveways as instructed by real estate agents as they are likely to boost the home’s value.

Just think, if you were buying a home and it had a beautiful brand new concrete driveway laid likely to last the next 50 years, that’s one more box ticked on your dream property.

Not only do they last decades and are extremely affordable, they reduce upkeep and are not appreciated enough for their eco-friendly qualities.
