    Default Painting concrete driveway

    Hi

    Ive had several additions to my driveway over the years and was thinking about getting stencilling done to try to reduce the patchwork look it has at the moment. Unfortunately my budget doesnt extend to doing it properly at the moment so I was thinking about just painting it all myself in a darkish colour.

    So my questions are...

    Will painting the driveway make it hard for the stenciller in the future do his job or can they just paint over it (seems doubtful)? If I need to strip it back will that be a major hassle?

    Is there anything in particular I need to consider when painting a driveway? Theres very few oil spots on it but I assume Ill need to at least reduce them as much as possible? What paints in particular to use?

    Whats a good product to use to fill in the few cracks that have appeared over the years?

    With the paint should I roller it or can you use a spray gun?

    Thanks
    Neil
