Simple Steps to Installing New Concrete
We’ll measure your property and outline the exact size and grade for your new concrete. We’ll also discuss options for long-term sealants and joint caulking. You’ll receive a project drawing and estimate for your review and approval.
We’ll demolish your existing concrete, place it in a dumpster and haul it away. This is a noisy process, but we take care to keep our work site as clean as possible.
New Concrete Base
We’ll establish a proper base by compacting sand and fine-grading the area to ensure long-term performance.
We’ll use form boards to establish the shape of your new concrete. If you want any special curvature or design aspect, now is the time to decide.
We pour concrete with a mix design specific to our local climate, an exterior mix that allows for maximum strength in freeze/thaw cycles. We can also customize a performance mix and add fiber and wire mesh to meet your requirements.
Depending on the application, we’ll use either a broomed or a troweled finish on your concrete. Ask us about options for stamped and colored concrete, as well as exposed aggregate.
Control Joints, Sealing and Caulking
We’ll cut or tool control joints as appropriate to the size and design of your concrete. An initial sealant will be applied to your concrete to help it cure properly. If you elect to add a long-term sealant, we will schedule the application approximately 15 days after placing your new concrete. Caulking the joints within your new concrete slab helps to protect it from freeze/thaw cycles and erosion of the subgrade.

‘Concrete’ Or ‘Cement’ Pouring?
Many people are unaware that there’s a difference when asking for new cement pouring services. Cement is the compound that forms the base of concrete. Cement can be bought in bags of dry powder from any hardware store. Only when it is mixed with an aggregator (sand, pebbles, etc.), and water, does it become the final product called concrete.
