Commercial Versus Residential Concrete
Commercial concrete is used to construct or upgrade business facilities, such as industrial buildings, warehouses, retail stores, and restaurants. Commercial concrete has many applications, from slabs, city sidewalks, structural walls, commercial trench drains, ramps, and structural slabs.
The key difference between commercial and residential concrete is the demands they face. Commercial concrete needs to withstand greater wear and tear from foot traffic and machinery, placing a higher demand on structural performance and durability.
Old, dilapidated concrete is more than just an eyesore. Left unchecked, deteriorating concrete can be a hazard and get in the way of your daily business operations.
Extensive surface wear, widespread cracks, planned modifications, or frost heave are all reasons to demolish old concrete. We can take care of the tear-down to make room for concrete expansion or replacement.
Formwork determines the shape of the finished project. Before we can place any concrete, we create custom forms to ensure the desired shape and size.
We have the experience and expertise to handle any concrete forming project, big or small. We’ll work with you to create a custom concrete forming solution that meets your specific needs and budget. Whether you need a simple slab or complex custom shapes, we can help.
While often referred to as ‘pouring,’ concrete placing is the process of depositing freshly mixed concrete into pre-constructed forms where it hardens, after which the forms are removed.
This is how we create large machinery pads or retrofits, city sidewalks, curbs, structural walls, slabs, or ramps. Concrete placing is a delicate process. We take the utmost care to ensure all technical and climatic parameters are considered for the structural integrity of the final product.
Not all house slab types require formwork. An infill is a type of slab where the concrete is placed between existing walls. Infill slabs are commonly used between masonry walls that have been built on a footing, like in a garage, shop, or warehouse.
Trench infills are for backfilling a trench that’s cut for plumbing or some other type of underfloor trenching. We have extensive experience with concrete infills to meet your project’s needs.
Rebar is a steel bar used to create reinforced concrete for high-durability areas. These reinforcing steel bars are added to floor slabs, walls, and posts to prevent cracks, wear, and structural compromise.
If your project needs some heavy-duty concrete construction, we have the tools and know-how to make it a reality.
