What can I do to improve the look of my driveway?


I recently had 22 yards of concrete poured to expand my existing driveway however the older original driveway and the new concrete are not even close to the same color. Is there any durable solutions to improve the appearance and match up the concrete? Any help will be greatly appreciated, I'm sure this is a common problem and there must be a fix. Thanks again Dan.

Anything you do will be short term. They will age differently and they came from different mixes.
They do have concrete stain you might try.

pressure wash


Pressure wash your old concrete and you might get it closer. Then you can apply a concrete stain to even them out. Years of age usually does the trick too.
