I had my driveway done with stamped concrete. Go Concrete Design was the contractor I hired. Their work is gorgeous. I wish I could take pictures and download them but I don't know how. In two week they are returning to my home to do the floor in my lanai with a different technique which looks like slate. If you're interested PM me and I'll give you my address so you can see for yourself.

I used Delcrete, as did all of my neighbors. Very happy with results and price.

Decorative Concrete did our garage and driveway......still getting compliments from folks driving by. Cliff was great to work with and he and his crew made us happy campers.

Might be a result of what they added to the clear coat. Decorative Concrete added chips which provides traction when wet. I have talked to neighbors who have had their driveways done with pavers, great look, unfortunately I wouldn't have been able to afford the cost.

No matter which company you use I would advise you to wait until you have lived in the house for 1 year. After your 1 year inspection is done. We did ours shortly after moving in and during the first year parts of the driveway cracked and chipped. Once they were repaired we had to call the company who painted it. We waited 4 months to get it fixed and then he wanted $200 to repaint it or for free he would just paint it the base color. The area needing repainting was just the triangle at the bottom of the driveway. I was so mad about the price I just had him paint the base color and leave. Next time either stamped concrete or pavers.

Morning dew on mine is like an ice skating rink. I took a bad fall on it just about two weeks ago. Make sure you address this with whomever you hire.
