I know nothing about this. You never see it up north. We have looked at several "designed" driveways and liked the looks of them, but have wondered about many of the same things being discussed here. Besides trying to choose which way to go..what about selling your home? I'm guessing that a prospective buyer won't agree with your driveway color & design and want to pay less for it. Any thoughts on this? And..the last question..cost??

What exactly is the process of doing liquid concrete? Actually, I thought all concrete was liquid at some point. Does it come in colors or designs? How does this compare to the costs of other treatments?

I suggest you to NOT use the paint or stain products. I have been thru several type of applications. I urge you to choose the liquid concrete application that several contracors are using. And my suggestion for a contractor is Florida Deck and Pool.

Thumbs up Experience

We had our driveway done by Amy L.Newsom, Inc. (352) 308-7410. They did an outstanding job. They first ground all of the old stain off of the driveway and patio and then painted and then coated, etc. They were reasonable, were on time and great to work with. We had seen other driveways they had done and they were terrific.

Look into pavers. The price is not a whole lot more.

Just make sure you are allowed to Paint your driveway, check your Deed restrictions. You could be subject to huge fines by the VCCD

I am convinced that staining is not the correct word , perhaps painting isn't either. When I thing of staining, I think of the stain penetrating what it is applied to... Staining should never chip or peel. In my neighborhoopd there are hundreds of "stained" driveways that are peeling, chipping and fading down to the bare concrete. Staining should not be able to be ground off, when I had the liquid concrete applied, the contractor did just that. My drive lasted 12 years and I expect the liquid concrete to last twice perhaps three times that long. I have no major complaints abouit the "stained" driveway except for the fact that I was continually scrubbing off tire marks. In two yearsI have not had to wash my liquid concrete driveway, not a single time.

This is another downside to a stained driveway. If at some point you would rather have the liquid concrete, the stain MUST be removed by grinding. There is very little that can be applied over a stained drive.

I am in the process of contacting someone to do concrete coating. I haven't been satisfied viewing the painting which looks pretty plain for the money. This process costs more but I've seen only two driveways done which look great but of course it is NEW and hasn't been down for several years.

Please let me know if you find someone!

Also do you have a good allergist????

thank you, joyce

Epoxy is the only way to go .. I can't think of anything that can damage an epoxy floor.
