No problem. Attached is my current driveway it is in good condition except where the root from a tree lifted it by the garage door. My goal is to make it wide enough for a car coming out of the hate to get around a car in the driveway. I'll be renting a jack hammer to bust up the driveway, walkway, and patio this weekend.

As you can see water runs right into the garage for how it's raised.

When I priced pavers vs concrete for a driveway replacement the concrete was, on average, a little over half the cost of the pavers.


Don't know what the difference would be in your area but it might be worthwhile to check. A DIY concrete solution might be affordable.

I second 7ECHO. I had a tentative, rough estimate for pavers in the last two months and was almost three times the cost of concrete, all labor included.

I think we will be getting pavers and doing it ourselves. Driveway is 30 feet and currently 10 ft wide. Going to break out all concrete and do all pavers extending it to 16-18 ft wide

ryan -

Probably a good chice for your situation.

Real interlocking concrete pavers can be a very good DIY solution, since it can be done at your pace. Just make sure to throw a coating if fine sand on the top and use a plate vibrator to finish up, true the surface and create the high pavement strength necessary for the application.
