When you call us you can rest assured that your concrete driveway cost will be the most competitive and best installed concrete that you can get.
The basic elements of concrete are rock, sand, cement powder and water. Concrete's simple ingredients and its work-ability, gives it durability and strength. Because of that concrete is the most widely used man made material in the world. Its strength, durability and versatility make concrete an integral part of all your building needs. From the first stages in the building process of installing footings, to the final installation of your driveway and sidewalk, concrete is literally the foundation of any building project.
Since concrete is so important to the building process homeowners and property owners alike want to be absolutely sure that the concrete that is being used for their building needs, is being installed and finished by a trusted professional such as Concrete Services of St. George.
Many factors determine the concrete's strength. Water is one of those factors. Water also affects the "work-ability" of concrete. Too little water and it is too difficult to finish leaving the possibility of a poor finish . Too much water and it will lose strength after it cures. Concrete Services of St. George knows how to install a cement driveway at the best cost and professionally in order to maintain its strength. Leaving you with concrete that will last for years to come.
Different "types" of concrete are installed differently. Whether it is a driveway, garage floor, basement floor or sidewalk, they are each done differently. Driveways, sidewalks and patios are textured with a concrete broom so that it won’t be slick in the rain and less slick in icy conditions. Garages and basement floors or any interior concrete flooring is finished smoothly because you don’t need a rough finish on interior concrete flooring and the smooth surface gives it a more finished “look”.
You can trust us to order the correct amount of concrete for your job. Unless there are special circumstances, concrete is generally installed 4 inches thick. An uneven depth or incorrect measurement can result in too much concrete being ordered and then wasted. Maybe even costing you money. We will accurately measure the amount of concrete that you need, at the correct thickness so you don’t pay for more than you should.
We also know the correct concrete mixes to use depending on the type of concrete surface that we are installing. Concrete that is used for footings and foundations are generally less expensive than concrete that is used for driveways, sidewalks and patios. These different types of concrete product vary in the amount of cement powder that the product contains as well as the air content. The cement content in concrete adds to the “finished” strength but it also increases the cost. Air is added to concrete so that it won’t crack or crumble from frost or freeze. Generally air is not needed for interior concrete. You can trust us to order the correct concrete that is needed for your project so that you get the best value for your money as well as the strongest concrete.
There may be circumstances when your concrete will need to be reinforced for strength. To reinforce concrete, rebar is added to the surface before the concrete is installed. Adding rebar to the concrete is not always necessary but it may be needed if because of large vehicles, boats or other equipment that may be driven and stored on it. You can trust us to know when rebar is needed and when it is not, ultimately saving you money and future concrete repairs.
The ground or ‘grade’ that your concrete is being installed on, is just as important if not more important then the type of concrete that is being installed. Concrete should never be installed directly on dirt. Installing concrete on dirt will dry the concrete out too fast and leave the finished concrete weak and susceptible to breaking and or cracking. Concrete should always be installed on a surface composed of gravel, sand or other appropriate material. It should always also be compacted in order to prevent the surface from underneath the concrete from ‘settling’ which can cause the concrete to collapse and crack. Because of its availability and cost, Gravel is generally the most popular material to add to the ground before concrete is installed.
We will always ensure that your concrete project will be installed correctly from start to finish in order for you to enjoy the benefits and low maintenance that professionally installed concrete provides.
