Concrete flatwork is the process of installing concrete in horizontal panels fitted into measured frames of the ground surface. Often times, beneath the surface level, there is also a level of aggregate that is intended to provide more strength and support and keep the concrete from shifting or caving. Concrete flatwork can be provided by our professionals at a low cost and with long-lasting results that you can count on.
Concrete flatwork is done by installing frames into the area where the concrete will be installed and measuring the space where the concrete will then be poured. Once the frames have been set in place and the concrete is mixed accurately, it is then poured into the frames and worked flat using one of our scraping tools. When completed, it is then left to dry completely to avoid premature deterioration. Concrete that does not dry properly or is not mixed properly can succumb to external weather damages quicker and be costlier to repair over time. To avoid this, concrete flatwork is best left to the professionals who understand the mixture ratios and installation process. When your concrete has fully dried, it is then ready for a sealant and eventual use.
Concrete flatwork is intended to last a long time for extended and frequent use. This means that when you invest in our concrete flatwork, you’re getting lasting quality and security. We back our concrete flatwork with warranties and guarantees that if you’re not satisfied with our level of work or your concrete flatwork is not living up to its name, then we’ll fix the problem with no questions asked. We stick by our goals of providing concrete flatwork that have extensive longevity to be proud of, so you can worry less and enjoy your surfaces more!
Concrete stamping is the process of stenciling shapes, patterns, and designs into the surface layer of the concrete while it’s still wet. This is done to mimic other forms of building materials or simply add dimension to the otherwise flat layer of concrete. Concrete stamping does not compromise the integrity of your concrete, nor does it reduce its ability to perform well under foot and car traffic. Concrete stamping is merely done for aesthetic purposes and is a simpler way to spruce up your generic concrete without damaging it or opting for another building material altogether.
Once your concrete has been installed and dried completely, it must then be sealed using a sealing agent that is added to the top layer of the concrete. The sealing agent functions as a protective layer to divert water and damage away from your concrete. Sealant has the ability to prolong your concrete’s lifespan and reduce the need for frequent repairs and replacements. After working in the industry for a number of years, we’ve found that concrete that is sealed with industrial-grade sealant lasted longer and performed better over time than concrete which was not sealed. Furthermore, adding sealant to your concrete can reduce the need for frequent cleanings or overall maintenance. Check out our next post block and stone walls.
