Hartford Concrete Driveways
When it comes to the process of pouring the proper concrete driveway there is so much that goes into it. First, you will want to know that you are hiring the best contractor for the job and can rely on them to guide you in all the right directions. Price can always be a great factor in the choices you need to make as the client of Hartford Concrete. We need you to be informed about the different options you have with your concrete driveway. Tearing out old cracked concrete is always a mess and needs to be done with heavy equipment and safety first to ensure no one gets hurt. All job sites need to be kept clean and tidy at the end of each day with proper caution tape to make sure pedestrians are aware of whats going on in the area. Tearing out concrete requires big trucks trailers and loud noises and dirty dusty air is always going to happen and all vehicles need to be moved out of the areas. Once the old concrete is removed and hauled away the driveway base layer needs to be prepped and graded to proper specs. The base layer needs to be compacted and forms placed and staked for support of the concrete pour. On the day of the pour we need to make sure all contractors are in place and ready to rock and roll so when the cement truck arrives we can get to work right away. All concrete tools and equipment will be provided by Hartford Concrete to complete the job the right way in a timely manner. When the cement truck starts pumping concrete as the homeowner please advise staying out of the way and at a safe distance. Make sure all pets our inside or fenced in the backyard. The last thing we need is your pet Jake running around barking and trucking through the cement. The concrete will be poured and finished with a broom to give texture to the concrete. We make sure all concrete is finished to its specs and requirements. Your concrete driveway will need days to cure and harden before it is safe to drive on. All concrete will need to be cut for expansion joints to ensure that the concrete can expand. The reason for the concrete cuts is to ensure that when concrete cracks it's on a cut line and not across the middle of the concrete. After the concrete driveway has had time to rest and cure and harden its time to wash and seal the concrete to protect it from the harsh chemicals of oil and gas and salt. The concrete should be washed and sealed every couple of years to keep it in great shape and safe from the harsh products that can eat away at the surface of the cement.
