Concrete

Concrete

  • What is concrete ?

It  consist of a mixture of aggregates, sand, gravel, crushed stone ,cement, and water.

REASONS TO CONCRETE

  • Durability

Most driveways,sidewalks,slabs,ADA ramps will last more than 30 years.Concrete is superior to weathering and corrosion resistance.It is not as likely to rot, corrode, or decay as other building materials. Thus offering excellent protection from daily and severe weather condition.

  • Low Maintenance

The key to achieving a strong, durable concrete-mix rests in the careful proportioning and mixing of the ingredients. This will achieve the desired little or no maintenance, which adds to its popularity.  Concrete’s long life and relatively low maintenance requirements increase its economic benefits.

  • Aesthetic Appeal

Aside from the many advantages. Curb appeal is a great bonus,it will add beauty to your home, or business.The two main types used are hard-troweled and broom finish. Broom finishes are appropriate for exterior slabs such as sidewalks, offering durability and a slip resistant surface. Decorative finishes are also available, including: Patterned, Colored and Exposed Aggregate.

  • How is concrete placed?

Sub grade must be compacted and leveled.  All necessary forms are set, and mix is poured. Control joints are placed and mud is finished according to customer.

 

Curing compound will be applied. This will act like a blanket it forms a thin membrane over the concrete to prevent water from evaporating quickly.

 

Note: All concrete preparation, and finish, Will vary per individual project.

Seal Coating

Seal Coating

  • What is Seal Coating?

Liquid sealant – a mixture of coal tar, sand, performance additives, a quick dry component, and water

NOT a crack filling agent (crack filling must be done prior to sealcoating)

 

REASONS FOR SEAL COATING

  • Saves Money

Sealcoating your pavement extends the asphalt life cycle. Asphalt prices are skyrocketing. Sealcoating is more cost effective than ever before.

  • Restore “New Look” to Pavement {Read More}

Fresh sealcoat brings a deep, rich, black color to the pavement, making it look like new. First impressions are greatly enhanced with a fresh sealcoat.

  • Slows Oxidation and Sun Damage

Exposure to oxygen hardens asphalt binders. Sun causes the essential oils and binders to dry out. This results in a brittle pavement surface that soon cracks.

  • Prevents Water Penetration

The #1 enemy of asphalt is water. Asphalt is porous. Left unsealed, water will penetrate the sub-base, weakening it and reducing pavement strength.

  • Increased Flexibility

Sealcoat keeps a parking lot black. The blacker it is, the more solar heat is absorbs which makes for a more pliable and less brittle surface area.

  • Protects Again Gas and Oil Spills

Sealcoating creates a protective barrier and slows penetration of gas, oil and chemicals.

  • Easier to Clean and Maintain

Sealcoat  fill surface voids while coating the pavement surface. This creates a smoother surface which is easier to maintain.

  • How is Seal Coating Applied?

Asphalt surface must be clean and free from all dirt and debris.

 

Seal Coating is applied by pressurized spray application . Its is of most importance that equipment shall have continuous agitation capabilities, this will  insure consistency of pavement sealer  throughout the application process. Hand squeegees and brushes shall be used  to carefully trim all edges, and in areas not wide enough to use pressurized spray system.

Note: Pavement surface repairs should be made prior to sealcoating with  hot  asphalt mix. Cracks should be filled with  hot rubberized joint sealer or cold applied crack fillers

Asphalt

  • What is Asphalt?

Asphalt is made from stones, sand, and gravel, held together by asphaltic bitumen a dark, sticky substance derived from crude oil. All of these materials are mixed in Hot batch plant and either loaded into trucks for delivery or stored in silos for pick up.

REASONS FOR PAVING 

  • Versatility 

Because of its strength and flexibility, asphalt can be used for driveways, parking lots, roadways . With proper maintenance and repairs pavement can last 20 years plus.

  • Minimal Down Time

Paving with hot mix cuts  project time significantly and eliminates the long curing times of concrete. As a result, traffic can resume smoothly and impact on business is minimized. Pavement is ready for traffic soon after it is compacted and cooled

  • Easy to Maintain 

Clean the parking lot,driveway at least once a year. Seal coat the asphalt every two to five years. Cracks and holes should be repaired as needed. Patching is a common asphalt repair on areas of pavement with potholes.  Unlike concrete, which needs to be removed and replaced, asphalt can be resurfaced in much less time, and at a fraction of the cost.

  • Curb Appeal

An attractive blacktop surface with “curb appeal,” adds value to your home or business and should, therefore, be looked at as an investment, not simply an expense.

  • Process Of Asphalt Paving

Because of the complexity of the overall process. The basic structure of  paving goes as follows.

Surface must be clean and free from all dirt and debris(this does not apply to new parking lot,driveways,or roadways).

Apply asphalt binder to all asphaltic surfaces. Lay down hot asphaltic materials and compact using a vibratory roller.

Note: New pavement should be seal coated 90 days after job completion. Seal coating is NOT included with paving but it is recommended at an additional price.
