Concrete Flat Work

Concrete flatwork is any poured surface that moves along a horizontal plane. Flatwork surfaces include patios, walkways sidewalks, foundations, driveways and any other flat surface. Concrete is the choice material for flatwork due to how it can form a perfectly flat and even surface.

Flatwork is formed with a frame and a sub base made up of either rebar or aggregate rock. The sub base will strengthen the concrete and prevent cracks from forming under pressure and age.

Central Valley Conrete Lifting Poly Pros will first section off and frame the area where the concrete feature will be located. They make a frame out of wood that will act as a mold for when the concrete is poured. The mold will eventually be cut away, but it will ensure that the concrete is poured at the right depth and dryer even and flat.

Concrete Flatwork Cost

The cost of concrete flatwork is higher than any other paving material like asphalt but pays off when you factor in how long it will last. Concrete flatwork will not need to be replaced as often and will stay finished longer.

If you use pavers or bricks to make flatwork you will have to worry about settling and movement. Concrete flatwork is more resilient to factors like tree roots and rain damage than pavers.

Sidewalks

Sidewalks are a common form of concrete flatwork. Sidewalks are poured in sections with expansion joints in between them. They typically are not made with rebar reinforcement but rather have an aggregate rock sub-base. Sidewalks are finished flat and can sometimes have a subtle finish to enhance grip and safety when the surface is wet.

If your concrete is structurally-sound, why replace it? Replacing the concrete won't fix the soil problem that's causing the settlement. Concrete leveling is the answer.
