Walkway and Stairs Services

Concrete is one of the most durable materials a person can build with. It is no wonder that so many people choose to have many of their construction projects performed with concrete as the primary material.

Here at CC Concrete LLC, we didn’t get into the concrete construction business on a whim. We chose concrete because it is a material that offers so many different benefits, and unlike some other building materials, it will never be just a fad. It provides good acoustics, superb fire and water damage protection, excellent thermal mass and low carbon construction. It is also an incredibly versatile material with very few limits on its ability to be structured and manipulated.

Why Choose Concrete Over Other Building Materials?

Concrete has been used in construction for centuries and is a popular choice for many reasons.

Here are some advantages of using concrete over other building materials:

  • Highly durable: Concrete is incredibly strong and able to withstand heavy loads, making it an ideal choice for stairs and walkways.
  • Fire resistant: Unlike wood or steel, concrete does not burn.
  • Low maintenance: Once properly installed and cured, concrete requires minimal upkeep.
  • Versatile and customizable: Concrete can be poured into different shapes, sizes, and colors to suit various architectural styles and designs.
  • Environmentally friendly: The materials used in making concrete are abundant and have a low environmental impact.

Concrete walkway construction

Walkways are a great way to keep a healthy looking yard as they create an area for foot traffic so that the grass is not trampled. They also provide protection as concrete walkways can be given a coarse texture to prevent slipping or they can have top coats applied that provide better grip. Placing a walkway also gives you the possibility of dividing your yard into different areas. On one side you can have your garden and on the other you can have an area for activities.

Is Gravel Needed Under Concrete?

Gravel is often used as a base material for concrete projects. The purpose of using gravel under concrete is to provide a stable and compacted foundation, which helps prevent the slab from settling or cracking.

If the ground underneath the concrete is already solid and well-draining, gravel may not be needed. However, if the soil is loose or has a high water content, adding a layer of gravel can help improve the stability and longevity of the concrete slab.

Our experts can evaluate your project and recommend whether or not gravel needs to be used in the construction process.

Can You Pour Concrete Over Concrete?

In most cases, new concrete can be poured over existing concrete. This method, known as an overlay, can be a cost-effective way to repair or update an existing concrete surface.

Before pouring the new concrete, the existing surface must be thoroughly cleaned, and any cracks or damaged areas must be repaired. A bonding agent may also need to be applied to ensure proper adhesion between the old and new concrete.

How Long Does Concrete Take to Cure?

The curing process for concrete can take anywhere from 7 to 28 days, depending on various factors such as weather conditions and the type of cement used. During this time, the concrete is still vulnerable to damage and should be protected from heavy traffic or other stresses.

Here are some tips to help ensure proper curing:

  • Keep the concrete moist by regularly sprinkling it with water for the first few days.
  • Avoid putting heavy objects on the concrete until it has fully cured.
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions for any sealants or coatings applied to the surface.

It is important to allow sufficient time for concrete to cure before subjecting it to regular use. This will help prevent future cracking or damage.

What is the Difference Between Cement and Concrete?

A common misconception is that cement and concrete are the same thing. However, they’re actually quite different.

Cement, primarily made from limestone and clay, is an ingredient in concrete, acting as the binder that holds everything together.

Conversely, concrete is a composite material that includes cement, sand gravel, and water. When mixed, these ingredients undergo a chemical reaction that allows the mixture to harden into a durable, strong material used in construction.
