How much does Concrete driveway cost in Albuquerque?

In Albuquerque, concrete driveways typically cost between $4 and $15 per square foot. However, the final price can vary depending on several factors:

  • Driveway size: Larger driveways will naturally cost more due to materials and labor.
  • Concrete finish: Plain concrete is the most affordable option, while stained or decorative finishes will cost more.
  • Site preparation: This includes removing old pavement, grading the land, and installing any necessary drainage.
  • Reinforcement: Adding rebar or wire mesh can strengthen the concrete but adds to the cost.
  • Color: Colored concrete costs more than standard gray concrete.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need permission to create a driveway in Albuquerque?

According to the City of Albuquerque Building Safety Division you don't need a permit for platforms, walks, and driveways not more than 30 inches above adjacent grade and not over a story or basement below and not part of an accessible route (source). However, it is best to consult a professional before you start your project just to be sure.

Is 4 inches of concrete enough for a driveway in Albuquerque?

For Albuquerque homes, 4 inches of concrete is standard for residential driveways catering to light vehicles. Given Albuquerque's climate, this thickness balances durability with cost-efficiency.

In Albuquerque, a concrete driveway can last 25 to 30 years, thanks to the city's dry climate reducing weather-related wear. Regular maintenance can extend this lifespan.

Given Albuquerque's soil composition and occasional extreme weather, using rebar or wire mesh can enhance a driveway's resilience against cracking and shifting, making it a wise investment for longevity.

In Albuquerque's climate, a 4-inch concrete driveway typically takes 7 days to cure enough for light use, but it's best to allow a full 28 days for complete curing, especially in extreme temperatures.
