Concrete Flatwork

What exactly is concrete flatwork? Think flat! Concrete flatwork is formed from poured concrete which creates flat surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks and walkways, parking lots, foundations, patios, pool decks and more. Concrete flatwork is also often seen in commercial interior spaces. For example, polished concrete flatwork floors are popular in commercial stores such as Home Depot and Walmart. Concrete flatwork is also used for ease in access, such as ramps and loading docks.

Concrete is a preferred material for flatwork for several reasons. It is strong and durable, offering high compression strength and can last for decades and possibly even longer without requiring repair. Concrete flatwork is cost-effective and can be found on the most expensive properties, inexpensively increasing property value and curb appeal. Concrete is also an extremely versatile material which can be adapted to accommodate just about any project.

Concrete flatwork finishes are versatile too. They can be textured to prevent slipping on wet or inclined surfaces. Concrete flatwork can be stamped with design impressions. Pigments can be added to wet concrete, dyes and paints can be added after concrete is dry and color can also be added to concrete sealants and epoxy.

Excavation, form construction, a strong base, a high grade mix of concrete, as well as proper pouring and finishing can all affect concrete flatwork. For quality concrete flatwork, it is always a good idea to employ a reputable firm with experienced personnel and high caliber materials.
