Flatwork for Driveways and Patios
in Salt Lake City
When you think of the final product of concrete flatwork, it can seem rather simple. Driveways, sidewalks, patio surfaces, garage slabs, and foundational slabs—all can just look like basic, unfinished, poured concrete.
When you consider what actually goes into the process of concrete flatwork, however, it’s anything but simple. First, concrete can be mixed in a number of different shades, from the lighter cement mix to a darker, mortar concrete. The shade of the concrete used in your next concrete project will be discussed with you beforehand, but you should know: You have plenty of options. And that’s not even getting into stamping and staining. Here are a few things you need to know about the flatwork options offered by Buster’s Concrete in Salt Lake City, serving Davis and Weber Counties.
What is flatwork?
Flatwork describes the process of pouring, shaping, grading, and texturing liquid concrete into a surface that’s stable and flat when it dries. Flatwork is typically the least glamorous of all concrete projects, serving the following utilities:
- Garage slabs
- Foundation slabs
- Walkways and sidewalks
- Patio surfaces
- RV pads
- Other mixed-use concrete surfaces
Basically, if you need a flat surface on which to drive, walk, or do any number of other activities, you need concrete flatwork. An added advantage of using flatwork services is that they are considerably more affordable than using pavers or bricks to finish a surface.
Considerations of flatwork
Just because flatwork isn’t the most complex of all custom concrete projects doesn’t mean you don’t have options. When scheduling us for a job involving flatwork, here are some of the things you have to consider:
- Color Options: As mentioned, concrete is typically associated with the sandy shade in which it’s commonly seen, but can be mixed in a variety of different tones. Ask us to see color options before you approve plans for your concrete surface.
- Stamped Patterns: Stamping on the surface of concrete flatwork can make it look a bit more sophisticated, with a wide variety of available patterns to choose from. Ask us for more information about available flatwork patterns.
- Stains: Stains are useful in tinting concrete surfaces for two reasons: First, they can help protect the surface of the concrete from chips and scratches. Second, they can help the surface match architectural styles of the home and property, putting a sophisticated look into your price range.
