What’s the difference between concrete and asphalt?
Asphalt is a primarily used for public roads and highways because of the cheaper cost of manufacturing and installations, but the downside is it a far more inferior building product than concrete. Asphalt is made up of gravel and oil. It does not contain any reinforcement to control movement and can become soft in hot weather. Asphalt comes in one option, flat and black. Concrete on the other hand, has an engineered design strength to withstand any weather conditions, weight loads, and can be reinforced different ways to add additional strength. Concrete also comes in hundreds of different styles and colors.
How does the cost of asphalt compare to concrete?
On average, an asphalt pad is roughly half the cost of concrete.
Will you come to Penticton or Vernon?
We currently service our residential clients throughout the entire Okanagan, and our Commercial clients take us as far as Saskatchewan.
Do you seal and/or repair existing concrete?
We are proud of our experienced Repair and Sealing crews. They take care of all types of floor coatings, concrete and crack repairs, foundations leaks, saw cutting, control joint treatments, wall facing and tie hole filling. In the history of our business, there has not been a challenge that we haven’t accepted.
How soon can you get started on my project?
It all starts with a call in to our office. Our receptionist will take your information and ensure that one of our estimators will call you back promptly to schedule a meeting. Once the contract has been accepted and signed, our Project Managers will get in touch with you on the next available date to schedule. On average, we are able to start your project within a couple weeks of contract acceptance.
How long does the average project take?
This can depend on the size of the project. We prefer to schedule our 3 divisions (Forming, Finishing and Sealing) one right after the other so that your project is completed efficiently. We will always let you know when we are coming and what the next steps are during the project so that you know what to expect.
Who will call me?
Each of our divisions (Forming, Finishing and Sealing) have a Project Manager. This manager will contact you promptly to let you know the next available date that works for you and their crews.
When can I drive on my new concrete?
Concrete needs to cure a minimum of 28 days to meet full compression strength before you drive or park on it. Also, if sealing is required, you will need to wait until our crew gives you the approval first before you use it.
When can I walk on my new concrete?
This all depends on the type of finish. If your concrete does not require any other surface coatings (as part of the contract), then 24 hours is an ideal cure time before walking on your concrete. If the weather is cooler (during the months of October to March), 48 hours is required before walking on your concrete. Please contact our office if you are unsure about the remaining work on your project than may affect walking on your concrete earlier.
