A:  We’ve been in business for 50 years! Family owned and operated since 1967!
A: We use a “ready-mix” concrete provider.  “Ready-mix” means the concrete arrives at the job site premixed and ready to pour.
A: We use a 6-bag mix for all our cement applications. This means there are six bags of cement powder per cubic yard of concrete. The mix is required to meet a minimum of 4000 psi within 28 days of curing.
A: Cement must be a minimum of 4” thick for all applications except for approaches and sidewalk slabs that are a part of the driveway; they must be 6” in depth minimum.
A: The best base material available is “21AA Crushed Concrete,” the process of recycling concrete creates several sizes of aggregate and a very fine powder that when compacted creates a strong base. If the sub-base fails, then concrete will fail regardless of its strength and quality.
A: Yes, we are licensed and we are fully insured. Never let a non-insured/ non-licensed contractor work on your property because you the homeowner will be liable for any injuries or accidents.
A: It takes 1-2 days depending on the size and difficulty of the project. We have a large crew with all the equipment necessary to complete your project in a timely manner. (Not just you but your neighbors will appreciate that too!).
A: Saw cutting is important! It helps to control where your cement cracks. The saw cuts are very narrow and only 1.5”-2” deep. It takes the place of using too many expansion joints in the concrete. They also add a nice aesthetic look by dividing the cement into slabs.
A: We offer standard, rubber and vinyl expansion joints.
A: Generally the next day, but in colder temperatures it may need additional time.
A: You can drive on your new driveway in 10-14 days. When temperatures are colder, 2 full weeks is recommended.
