Concert on blacktop
Am I able to pour concrete over my blacktop driveway. The drive way is in pretty good condition.

I will be building a garage in this area.

of course, its YOURS, ain't it ? ? ? :yes:

the process is called ' whitetopping ' & its been done successgully many times,,, there are some particulars that should be followed but, in general, its the same as placing a conc pad on dirt,,, for a garage, you'll need footers OR a turned-down edge w/steel reinforcement

good luck !

It's half mine. Half the banks really lol.

Was just making sure. I searched some threads on google. But the page wouldn't open.

So what I could see from the description. Some said no.

many are ignorant of conc & its uses incl those who daily place & finish it,,, IF it were not viable, various state dot's & the feds wouldn't use it :thumbsup:

google ' whitetopping '
