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 and 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.
