I just had a a question. Do I need a lot of gravel under concrete for my dr
iveway. I live in California and get no extreme weather changes and I know
this can matter in the long run. I have a guy putting concrete in our drive
way, which is on a slope, used minimal gravel and rebar. Should this matter
? Or should there be more gravel? Please help. Thank you

The most important thing is you need a stabilized base. That means you
can't pour concrete over soil, you need something solid. If there is
16" of soil, then packed gravel and clay, then the 16" of soil needs to
be taken out and backfilled with gravel or similar fill material and compac
If you only have 6" of soil before you hit a sturdy, packed formation,
then you only need 6". So how much you need depends on the local soil

Your written agreement with the contractor should specify the details
of the job ? No written agreement or quote ?
... is he the cheapest guy ; talks real confident and friendly and
brags about his great workmanship - can start tomorrow ;
shows up in a beater pick-up with no business markings . ?
Hope you didn't hire that guy.
