For any project you have in mind, we will, of course, arrive at the site with the necessary materials. Depending on the size of the job, these can include a truck with a mixer (those huge rotating drums that prevent concrete from hardening too soon), pre-mixed concrete bags, trowels, molds, and so forth. Pre-mixed bags are typically brought in for smaller jobs like concrete countertops, floors, or steps. For large endeavors such as patios and decks, you might see one of the trucks.
To give you some numbers, a batch of concrete needs to be poured no longer than 90 minutes or 300 revolutions after being mixed with water. Longer than that and the batch begins to deteriorate. This deterioration is commonly referred to as slump loss.
Concrete Pouring Process
At the job site, we’re going to pour your concrete into a form (or frame) set up in advance to our standards. The forms are usually wooden and, should reinforcement be necessary, will also use steel rods or mesh screens. Once the concrete is in place, it will need time for curing (drying). Paradoxically, the surface of the project must be kept damp during this process, as concrete tends to shrink as it dries, and will warp if allowed to do so without evenness and uniformity.
The heat of our Southern California sun sometimes causes issues with rapid curing, in which case our crews will need to work in the mornings or late afternoons.
Once the concrete is dry, we’ll add a sealant to protect it from that beautiful sun, as well as water, foot traffic, and other forms of physical interaction.
