Concrete

Things to consider before you have a contractor install concrete for you:

  • Determine how much concrete you need
  • Choose a shape and/or color that will compliment the rest of your property
  • Choose a finish that you like that will meet your needs
  • All colored concrete if not sealed will fade
  • Consider the lay of the land before pouring concrete
  • Consider drainage needs and accessibility for drains, irrigation and wiring before placement begins
  • Make sure concrete slopes away from the house for the first four feet
  • Make sure control joints and expansion joints are up to code
  • Always use a concrete contractor who has a C-8 License and who has liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance
  • Make sure you have 2″ clearance under the stucco to prevent moisture problems
  • Grading, conduit installation and underground work should be completed before concrete is placed

 

The Process:

  • Forms are set and stakes installed to keep the forms correct
  • Proper compaction is checked before installing road base or gravel
  • Weather conditions and moisture content of sub-grade must be acceptable before pouring
  • Concrete is placed in the forms and leveled, then immediately bull floated
  • Concrete is then edged and troweled
  • Control joints are then placed into the concrete
  • Depending on the finish you choose, it will either be exposed, stamped, rock salted, or broom finished
