Concrete Driveway repair
1 Attachment(s)

Hi All,

My first post in this forum.

We bought this house only a few months ago and got a notice from the HOA to fix a damaged block in our driveway (pic attached). I have taken quotes, but no-one will remove and replace this small block. The cost to replace the entire driveway is $3800.

Is there any way I could replace just this block myself? How would you go about repaving/fixing this little block.

Thanks all in advance.

EDIT: Thanks, Chris. They are saying too small job, they need to bring in at least a truck load of concrete to any job. Noob homeowner.

Here are the edited, nearly verbatim, responses I got. If I had the square footage, the bids would be more concise. In total, I got 15 responses in just four hours of the posting. I specified demolition, hauling, concrete, mesh in the cement for strength, and finishing. Bid to include all materials and labor .... You can see my original idea as to the cost was a bit low ... but I was very speficic on the tasks required. The $1200 bid is stupid ... and the guy who bid $150 had to be on drugs.

Here are some of the actual bids:

Hi. I can do it for anywhere from $500-$700 depending on the size.
