Have you been tripping over the darned raised piece of sidewalk? Or driving home and getting aggravated about that crack in your driveway? We can fix these little things, no problem! We also arenâ€™t scared of a bigger project like a patio. We’ve had a lot of experience with concrete pouring.
Step by step concrete pouring
Let’s talk about the process of putting in a concrete driveway:
Remove any existing concrete, or remove black dirt if no existing concrete
Thickness of concrete should be 6 inches and therefore you would need to dig down 12 inches
Say you want a 20 feetx24 feetx6 (length by width by depth) inches driveway, you would need 9 cubic yards of concrete (480 square feet) and 12-15 cubic yards to of fill.
Form up area to pour with 2″x6″ lumber. Add fill and compact install (1/2″ rebar, 2″ on center)
Pour concrete, float it smooth and finish with concrete broom.
Rebar should be in the middle of the concrete, 2.5″-3″ off gravel base
Under normal conditions, concrete pouring completion 7-10 days until driving ready.
