Stained and Stamped Concrete Driveway with Approach and Walkway — St. Louis Hills

Stamped and Stained Concrete Driveway St Louis Hills BuildPro Concrete

Before BuildPro Concrete arrived, this was an ordinary two car asphalt driveway. The customer decided to let us design a unique driveway that would distinguish their house from the other houses in the neighborhood. They wanted an approach to their home they could be proud, and that will be a great investment should they ever decide to sell their home. Keep reading to learn more about this fun project.

Project Overview

Cramped and Cracking to Curb Appealing

The solution for this home was a beautiful, eye-catching, stained and stamped concrete driveway with integrated sidewalk to the front door and a new municipal sidewalk with approach in front. The original driveway only extended out as far as the opening of the garage doors, so we decided to widen the driveway. By widening the drive to the exterior width of the garage, the drive now frames the house better, feels more substantial, and allows for two cars to park in the driveway side by side. No more chasing down your spouse or kids because their car is blocking you in.

Next we poured an exposed aggregate border using Old Monroe stone. We incorporated the colors in the aggregate with the colors we used in the squares. These squares are stamped with seamless patterns to approximate pieces of stone.

New Municipal Sidewalk

We also installed a new traditional concrete approach from the street to the driveway, matching the exact design of the county-installed sidewalk with a broom finish and picture frame border for continuity.

We then connected the front of the house to the new driveway with an attractive curved walkway in a matching color. Very nice!

Premium Sealer for Vibrant Colors and Longevity

This driveway has our premium sealer to bring out all the color in the stamping and exposed stone, and of course for protecting the homeowners’ investment from Missouri’s wide weather fluctuations.
