Topic: Driveway Reconcreting

Hello Friends,

My driveway concrete has cracked at some places.  The driveway is used by cars and not trucks.

I was told that the steel used was 5mm bars which is not able to support the load of the traffic.

Can fresh concrete be laid on top of the original with ticker steel bars? Or I have to remove the old concrete before laying fresh concrete?

Please give suggestions.

Thanking you,
Peter

Dear
     If you have no any height problem than lay additional cement concrete at least 4'' thick on the old concrete, care should be,  taken that old concrete should be clean  and wet at the time of laying.

Thank you Mr. Gupta for your suggestion.

Additional height of the driveway is no problem. May I know the size of steel bar to be used?
