Concrete is necessary to facilitate the building of residential and commercial structures along with many other products. When looking at the make-up of concrete it usually consists four main ingredients, but can you alter this recipe? The answer is yes; there are admixture and additions that can be used with the main components of concrete. Admixture is added to concrete during mixing or before and changes the properties of concrete. Additions to concrete are interground or blended with Portland cement changing the behavior of the product.
Concrete can be modified using additions to create lightweight concrete. Lightweight concrete offers different benefits to consumers including heightened insulation and low energy consumption. To create lightweight concrete we add one of the following solutions, limestone powder, normal sand, fine sand, fly ash, fine fly ash, and expanded clay. The characteristics that are created with the addition of these materials create a variant on the original concrete surface. If you are looking for a concrete addition solution for your commercial or residential property contact us and take a look at your options.
Creating an interesting and appealing concrete surfaces can be accomplished with the help of pigments in concrete. During mixing the pigment is added altering the overall color of the surface! Instead of a classic concrete color, you can manipulate the mix to reflect natural tones such as brown and black and red or more unique colors such as blue, green and more! The pigments are added during the mixing process to ensure complete consistency throughout the application of the poured concrete. Enhance your stamped concrete to mimic natural stone, brick or more with the addition of pigments to your otherwise grey space. We offer competitive prices for our clients with quality results.
Adding a stamp to your concrete surface is a great way to revolutionize the classic concept of concrete. Through the years concrete has played an important role in the construction of homes and the facilitator of surfaces. We can now add a stamp to brushed concrete surfaces to add pattern, increase traction or mimic natural materials. Stamps are applied following the pour and leveling of concrete onto the designated space. The end result is a beautiful, functional space that can be enjoyed by inhabitants and guests alike. For samples of stamped concrete reach out to our customer care team today!
In some cases concrete slabs are already in place and functional but homeowners can benefit from additional square footage to the slab. We offer additions to slabs and structures following consultation and inspection of the current state. We go above and beyond to deliver the results that we promise to customers so with this in mind we do want to be realistic about our offerings and our limitations. Not all properties are the same and some situations require different cautionary measures that require the services of industry experts.
