Here are the steps we follow to complete each project:
- Excavate mud, concrete and any debris.
- Dig about 1 foot down for driveways; sidewalks about 4 to 5 inches down.
- Set up proper heights and slope with a laser level or transit.
- Form the job with 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 depending on job site.
- We supply ¾ down (gravel) for base, and then compact it with a plate compactor.
- We supply 10mm rebar on standard jobs.
- Lay rebar vertically and horizontally between 15” and 18” centres (depending on job), plus concrete blocks or plastic chairs to hold up the rebar off the ground.
- Drill holes into existing concrete if necessary, usually between 12” to 15”
- Concrete is delivered to every job site. Type of concrete being used is 32mpa* and 32mpa. Once concrete has cured for 24 to 48 hours, expansion cuts are completed on the concrete to prevent cracking. High quality acrylic cure and seal compound is then sprayed onto the concrete. (Thickness of concrete per job varies. For example, sidewalks and patios are approximately 4” to 5”, driveways and garage pads are 5” to 6.” All city approaches are 6” and concrete used must be 32mpa).
- Once the city approach has been completed, a city inspector will be contacted by us to have the approach inspected. This is a city requirement.
*MPa: A megapascal (MPa) is a measure of the compressive strength of concrete. It lets inspectors know how much force can be applied to the concrete before it cracks or fails.

We guarantee 2 years warranty against faulty workmanship. Hairline cracks may occur due to heaving. Heaving occurs when the moisture in the soil/clay freezes, it expands as all water does. This expansion pushes up against the concrete slab and raises it, causing hairline cracks. This is why rebar is used. It prevents the concrete from becoming uneven or separated if frost heave has occurred.
