My driveway is 32 feet 8 inches wide by 43 feet
long.The contractor poured it in 6 slabs. Each
slab was 21 feet 6 inches long by 10 foot 9 inches wide.
Apattern like !--!--!. The first slab cracked
after 26 days right in the middle. I believe he
did not use enough expansion joints and he poured
to large of slabs. No wire mesh was used and no
stones were laid. He did rip out the old macadem
and tamped the dirt. The concrete is between
four and five inches thick. Please provide your
Thank You,

Ed McKitrick
