Our decorative concrete services include providing new installations. A new installation consists of laying the concrete for a newly constructed home or an existing home. The concrete industry has developed rapidly, and your choices have expanded to include a multitude of decorative concrete designs. While standard gray concrete is still an option and often installed, today the concrete industry offers more choices and opportunities to create your own style.
If you already have a driveway, but you have problems such as water pitching towards the house, unsightly cracks, or chipping, don't hesitate to give us a call. We're here to solve your problems, and we'll remove and replace concrete as required. We can also help if you simply want to expand the space you have.
A typical concrete slab consists of a 4" compacted gravel base with reinforcements such as 6" x 6" wire mesh, fiber mesh, and rebar. We then pour 4" of 4,000-psi concrete. The equipment we use is listed below.
Power Buggy – A power buggy is used so the concrete truck does not interfere with or ruin your foundation, landscape, or lawn. It also works well to get concrete into hard-to-reach areas.
Bobcat – This piece of equipment comes into play when we remove existing concrete or provide excavation and grading services.
Compactor – A compactor is just that; it compacts the gravel we lay down to create a solid base for the concrete.
Concrete Forms – We use forms to make any shape required to fit your project or your desires.
Listed below are the services we offer. To see samples of our flatwork, please view our gallery pages. If you have a project that is not listed here, and you would like us to take a look at it, please contact us. We offer custom designs and architectural overlays for:
• Driveways • Sidewalks

• Curbs • Garage Slabs
• Approaches • Walkways
• Stoops • Patios
We provide a wide variety of decorative concrete finishes that incorporate color and texture. The possibilities are almost endless.
Colorful 3/8" pebbles are placed in the concrete at the plant or "seeded" into the concrete at the jobsite. At the right time during the finishing operation, the top layer of the cement paste is washed off, leaving the tops of the pebbles exposed.
Colors are either added to the concrete at the ready-mix plant or "dusted on" at the project site. A wide variety of colors is available to create a border, and colors are often chosen to match stone or other elements used around the home. Coloring can also be combined with stamping to create an outstanding effect. Concrete is placed and then stamped. A wide variety of patterns is available to emulate bricks, stones, pavers, or flagstones.
