Our standards demand that the concrete is to the proper thickness—many contractors only use wooden 2×4 forms, which actually are 3 1/2 inches tall. The result of doing so leaves you with a thinner slab. We use metal forms when possible, and our slabs have a minimum of 5″ thickness. We use heavy wire-reinforcing metal in 5’x10′ sheets supported by high chairs; this ensures that reinforcement is up in the concrete, not laying on the ground like most other companies.
We take our time to make sure that slabs are sloped correctly and in a direction away from structures. Just as importantly, you are not left with a mess! We thoroughly clean up when the job is done!
We also only use local concrete plants. This helps us to avoid ‘hot loads’ — loads that require excessive amounts of water and result in a substandard mix of concrete.
