I'm trying to save some money to get some paving/concrette done infront of my garage and my driveway. In front of garage is 30x30 driveway is shaped like a backwards P all together probably 70 yards long on that part which would be the cheapest way to go in you guys opinion, and who does it Around Anderson Co. in East Tn

I know I will be doing it in parts and pay each off then do the next thats the only way I can afford to do things. The biggest part will be the 30x30 in front of the garage. the rest will be done in squares a piece at a time

Standard truck load 9-10 yds
The cost of concrete is on the rise!
About 2 years ago was an average of $100/ 10yds.
It's at about $120/ 10yds

With roughly 70 yds.... $7000 estimated. If you get a full 10 yd truck load.

Concrete will cost more on the front end ( about a third more ) but asphalt will cost more in the long run, keeping sealed and such. Concrete will be there with no maintenance.

I did a concrete slab and I got as many coupons as I could from Home Depot and Lowes and bought a bag or 2 here and there lol
I ended up with 80 bags and poured my slab I needed.
BUT I don't drive vehicles on it.
You'll want to go atleast 4" thick and add fibermix to it.
I think like $5 or so more a truck load but WELL worth it.


Quite a few family members in concrete and construction. I worked concrete for awhile a few years back with my uncles company.
