A Brief Look at Concrete
Concrete refers to a type of material primarily made up, of course, granular filler within the cement. The material is designed to firmly hold together the particles inside, binding the structure together very strongly. Because of this, concrete makes a fantastic material to create whole structures, beginning with the concrete slab foundation. Concrete is also an excellent choice for paths with heavy traffic, such as concrete sidewalks and patios for backyard entertainment.
Concrete has a lot of uses:
In fact, there are innumerable projects in and around your home that are made perfect when made with concrete:
- Parking Lots
- Residential & Commercial Foundations
- Concrete Slab for a home, business, shed, home basketball court, etc…
A Little Concrete History….
The Romans were the first ones to use concrete initially, and now it’s a common building material globally. In fact, it’s used more than twice often than aluminum, steel, plastic and wood materials combined.
Many people mistakenly believe that concrete is synonymous with cement, alternating the word when they might actually mean the other material. This is not accurate whatsoever. Cement is a part of the concrete mixture, and the concrete is the structure formed.
We always have operators available ready to discuss differences in concrete materials for your next home or commercial project in the North Carolina or southern Virginia area. Give us a call to schedule an appointment!
When Does Concrete Slab Need Repair?
We receive several questions from our customers in the area. The one that comes up the most often: How can you tell when it’s time to repair or replace a concrete slab driveway? In truth, many homeowners and business owners are not aware of the symptoms of a driveway that requires repair, waiting too long before working with a concrete contractor. Because of this, we find that we can only repair about half the driveways we inspect. The rest require a full replacement.
We make this decision by considering a number of factors on-site. For one, we examine how old the concrete slab is and what kind of cracks and similar wear and tear it has. We check what condition the base of the concrete slab driveway is in, what kind of weather it had to withstand, water flow patterns and pressures in the area that could cause natural damage to the concrete slab surface. If there are problems underneath the concrete, such as a shift in the ground or roots growing, then it makes little sense to repair the area just for the problem to recur.
If erosion spreads too far or there are several cracks, it makes more economical sense to replace the entire concrete slab driveway rather than try to make several overlays, repairs and patches. In that same vein, if you intend to remain on the property for several more years, just replace the concrete now — it’ll be necessary down the line anyway.
If any damage and erosion exist in an isolated area, then it might be better worth sticking with basic repairs instead. This will cost less overall and take less time.
We will always discuss all options that you have available based on the condition of your driveway. And of course, we will provide you with a free estimate after our inspection.

Picking the Right Concrete Contractor
We recommend employing a number of tactics when you’re ready to pick a concrete contractor for your concrete slab needs. Some of these tactics include basic common sense, but others are not quite so obvious.
For starters, ask your relatives and friends for references. Do your homework and see what kind of work the company has previously done, ask them whether they had any problems and how quickly the job was done. Be sure to check out the website and call a few companies to compare services and prices. Be equally sure you’re comparing fairly; some may offer a lower price but don’t have as many services that you need or use thinner concrete.
