CONCRETE PAVING IN FORT LAUDERDALE, FL AND SURROUNDING AREAS
Driveways are made to withstand the heavy weight of automobiles and should have expansion joints to prevent cracking. It is common to see cement driveways in houses due to them being poured with the foundation of the home.
Concrete driveways are formed with a frame. Depending on the slope of the driveway may not require rebar underlay. Concrete driveways are a cost-effective driveway.
Concrete sidewlks are 4″ (6″ when supporting vehicular traffic) thick slabs formed and poured to create a pedestrian walkway. Expansion joints are installed between slabs, or flags, to prevent the concrete from buckling due to expansion. Concrete is extremely durable and does not fail structurally unless extenuating environmental circumstances have affected the sidewalk.
Concrete slabs are used in many warehouses and parking garages, as well as dumpster pads and aprons. Concrete slabs tend to be thicker than a regular sidewalk, ranging from 6″ to 18″. Additionally, concrete slabs are usually poured from a higher PSI concrete mix than sidewalks since they support more weight. Concrete slabs are also reinforced with either wire or fiber mesh, or with rebar, to add tensile strength.
