Smile Repairing an old driveway

DIY time of year - have been looking at my driveway - was originally all concrete, over the years it has cracked and has exposed patches of soil.

Can anyone list what options are available to revamp/patch up the drive?

Could it be re-skimmed, re-concreted, tarmacked? etc etc

Thanks all

I thinks it's past the point of repair. You need a new driveway. Repair will need a new substrate of gravel. And that is like putting a new driveway.

Hi Norm

thanks for the reply - appreciate that.

Would you think it would be an expensive job to get it replaced? The driveway is about the size of a small car

Thanks

Around here I guesstimate about $1500. Problem is finding someone to do that small a job.
