We needed some concrete work done in our facilities, so we had Mike from our customer service department do some research, and he did so well, we wanted to share it with everyone. Read on for more information:
Most concrete contractors will offer a wide range of services related to concrete construction.
The most commonly available concrete services include:
1. Slabs and Driveways
Most homes will need a driveway, and in many cases, will have the need of stone slabs for various purposes. Concrete is an excellent material for both of these structures. Skilled and experienced concrete contractors can offer homeowners installation servcies for these products.
2. Swimming Pool Additions
Most swimming pools will require concrete surrounds to separate them from the soil and to provide structural integrity for the large mass of water that is being supported. Concrete contractors can quickly, easily and economically perform this important service for homeowners.
When it comes to developing a backyard, few additions work better than a patio. They can be used for many purposes, including barbecues, gatherings, hot tub installations, and much more. Concrete is a great material for this purpose, because it is water resistant and long-lasting.
4. Retaining Walls
Many landowners experience problems with erosion and land movement. This situation can degrade not only the structure of the hoem itself, but it can also potentially lower the value of the property. By having sturdy and durable concrete retaining walls installed, this situation can be stopped in its tracks.
5. Stamped or Decorative Concrete
Whatever surface you want concreting, you can jazz up your designs with some well-thought out stamped decorative concrete patterns. The designs are only limited by your imagination, as you can construct almost any pattern imaginable! Your local concrete contractor can normally help you with the design, as well as the installation, process.
Concrete floors are commonly requested installations, as concrete is a great, robust material for most flooring applications. There are a variety of flooring options, depending on whether or not the floor is internal or external, and exposed to the elements. Internal flooring can be further enhanced by using a polished concrete product.
