REFINE’s team of Concrete Finishers are focused on quality, precision and detail when it comes to commercial and residential Concrete Placement of walkways, patios, driveways, roadways, curbing, foundations and retaining walls.
REFINE’s concrete slabs are used to support everything from patio furniture, to foot traffic, to semi-trailer trucks. With such a wide range of purposes and support requirements, concrete slabs present many construction variables that must be considered by REFINE’s placement professionals before concrete placement begins.
A slab pour requires efficient planning so that all of the elements that go into producing a high-quality slab are done in time (before the concrete sets) and done correctly. Knowing the right finishing tools to use and the right time to start bull floating and final troweling are essential elements you’ll want to trust with REFINE’s placement and finishing Craftsmen.
Determining the right concrete mix design and reinforcement requirements for the anticipated slab exposure and traffic conditions is essential as well. REFINE will calculate the proper water-cement ratio and air-entrainment requirements for the concrete mix to ensure that the slab will perform as intended. Proper positioning and support of wire reinforcement is also important to control and minimize cracking.
After concrete placement, there’s a whole new set of issues to address, such as proper placement and spacing of control joints and adequate curing. The timing and execution of these post-pour activities are equally essential to good slab performance, since rapid drying of a slab and improper installation of control joints can lead to inadequate strength and unwanted cracking.
Quality Concrete Placement is complicated and demands an attention to detail and planning that you can entrust with REFINE.
