Home Remodel Includes Stamped Concrete Driveway and Patio
Renton, Washington, Angie’s List member Dwaine M. intended to wait on driveway replacement and focus on other aspects of his home remodel.
According to his review, Dwaine says he originally wanted to do the concrete work in stages, starting with the backyard. “My initial plan was to put in the patio and walkway around to the driveway,” he says. “Then, [I’d] have the driveway and walkway to the front door done next spring.”
According to Dwaine, the company he hired, highly rated Jay Construction of Seatac, Washington, bid on the backyard work. Then, they asked if they could make a bid on the driveway and front walkway. “I said I would entertain the offer,” Dwaine says. “I knew I was going to do it eventually, and finally agreed.”

All the completed concrete work cost $13,000. Dwaine says he didn’t expect to have to purchase the coloring, seal and other materials himself, but he admits that it was in the contract he signed. These materials set him back an extra $400 that he didn’t plan on spending.
He says that even though that disappointed him, he loves the finished driveway. “They do quality work,” Dwaine says. “I do like the end result.”
