Concrete Forming Solutions
Concrete is a unique substance that begins life as a semi-solid. It can be worked and manipulated to create any shape and then it will harden in the shape desired. The ability concrete has to fill in voids and assume any shape is what makes it one of the most-used building materials available today.
Concrete forming consists of the creation of a solid barrier designed to hold concrete in place or that forces the concrete to assume a specific shape. However, there are some newer forming systems that have other jobs, too. For example, we offer concrete forming to provide insulation or to create specialized decorative effects.
Our team also provides floor finishing and flat work for concrete. This involves taking freshly mixed concrete and pouring it into a cast to create a desired form. It takes an experienced flatwork finisher to create a surface finish that has the desired texture or smoothness to offer a durable concrete slab. The concrete’s function will determine the finish that is applied to the flatwork.
For example, we offer burnished, textured, and decorative flatwork finishes. If the work is done inside a warehouse, for example, it may require a tighter tolerance on floor levelness and flatness. Most exterior concrete jobs will require a textured surface to help provide slip resistant benefits. Our finishing professionals understand the various specifications and finishing procedures for any job and will ensure that the proper finish is applied.
There are several steps our team will take to ensure that the highest quality finish for a concrete surface is achieved, which include:
-Casting or placement
-Consolidation using vibration
-Strike-off or screening
-Straight edging, darbying, bull-floating
-Wait period to remove bleed water
-Jointing and edging
-Float, wait, trowel (by hand or a power tool)

Once dry, you will have the durable and great looking concrete driveway that improves the look of your business or home.
Thanks to the versatility of concrete, you will find we offer an array of finish options to choose from and to customize your concrete surface. From decorative concrete finishes to stamped concrete finishes, some of the most popular options we offer include:
Floating or Troweling: After tooling the concrete with a screed, our finishers will use trowels to fine-level and smooth the concrete’s surface. This is done manually or using a machine.
Edging: This provides beveled or rounded edges on your finished concrete and creates joints where necessary to minimize cracking.
Broom Finishing: To make a concrete surface slip resistant, a broom finish is applied. As the name implies, a broom is swept across the surface to create small ridges that offer traction control.
Exposed Aggregate: This effect is created when our team washes the top layer of concrete away, exposing the edges of the natural stone aggregates. This offers a slip resistant, attractive finish.
Salt Finish: This finish is most commonly used for swimming pool decks.
Stamped Concrete: This is a texturing process created by using concrete stamps and we can create an array of designs, patterns, and textures to customize the look of your concrete surface.
Concrete Curb Installation
The installation of a concrete barrier is an essential part of any sidewalk or parking area. While there are many who don’t give this much thought, it offers an array of important functions.
There are several ways that concrete curbing can be beneficial. For example:
It defines the edge of a parking area
It helps prevent cars from running off of the edge of a parking lot
It protects any finished or landscaped area
It separates driving and parking areas from pedestrian areas
Helps with the retention of inclines in parking lots
Selecting the right barrier is an important part of any paving project and something we can help with. Our team can evaluate your paved area and help you determine the curbing option that best suits your needs and that will provide the highest level of protection.
Some of the most popular types of curbing solutions we offer include:
Concrete Ledge and Gutter
