Plain or coloured concrete for driveway?

Plain or coloured concrete for driveway?

What is the expect question when you ask for driveway

What is the expect question when you ask for driveway

The only thing i can think of that could be a variation on a driveway quote is the removal of spoil from the excavation. 58 a meter sounds like a good price
