Concrete is the most widely used man-made substance on the planet. There is about a 90% chance that you have had some sort of contact with concrete today, whether you have driven over it, walked on it or even lived in a place that used concrete as part of it’s foundation. Humans have been using concrete in some form for more than 8000 years now.
So that will let you know that there is nothing really hard about making and using this versatile material. In ancient times it was used to build aqueducts, coliseums, statues, roadways, walls, forts and buildings. It is so durable that many of these structures are still standing today and this is without any of the modern technology that we have added. Today concrete is still used in construction. With the use of rebar and other reinforcing structures, concrete has become our driveways, sidewalks, our roads and interstates, our skyscrapers, our foundations. You can even find it as the material that your grandmother’s garden gnome is made out of. We can even stain concrete if you find the color a little off-putting. Red, black, whatever color you like we can stain it to perfection.
Cost effective and efficient, concrete is possibly the most low maintenance material that we utilize. But bear in mind; the biggest consideration in any concrete job is the preparation work. The Concrete Connection takes great pride in not only the finished product but the entire process leading up to it. We don’t want to brag but we have seen lesser concrete companies “skimp
during the preparation stage as way we are and this can lead to you needing to do some Concrete repair. Concrete repair is one of our specialties. If your concrete driveway is cracking all to pieces there really is no reason for you to. Driveways are like people, many times they have issues that are just below the surface and with a little work can be fixed easily. If your driveway is less than 5 years old and it’s already cracking your may have a drainage issue UNDERNEATH it. We can fix that too. We’ll drain it, prep it, pour it, and finish it and even landscape around it so that you can have a product that will be pleasing to you for years to come. Sometimes you may just have an area that needs a little concrete repair instead of redoing the entire job.
