Do you do stamped concrete?Our stamped concrete services can be included as part of our concrete installation package for residential or commercial buildings. We do not do concrete stamping as a stand-alone service.
Do you provide a guarantee on your concrete foundation?We take extra effort to prevent concrete from cracking or shifting by installing dual-walled corrugated high-density polyethylene, Prinsco Proform. Proform is impact resistant and helps waterproof the foundation.
Why do you need to excavate before pouring concrete?Excavation is critical for having a solid and stable concrete foundation. Concrete must be poured on ground that is firm, even, and dry to help prevent cracking, shifting, and structural damage.
How long will a concrete driveway need to cure?There are many factors that impact the length of time for a driveway to be stable enough to drive on. We recommend at least 3 to 7 days depending on time of year, weather, and vehicle weight.
Are your workers qualified and reliable?All of our projects are supervised by concrete professionals. Workers are trained through apprenticeships, on-the-job experience, and given opportunities to develop their skills in new areas whether that is driving heavy machinery, mechanics, or leading a team.
Will you install a driveway, patio or sidewalk?Installing residential driveways, patios and sidewalks are projects we do as part of larger-scale commercial and residential excavation and concrete work. 

On a case-by-case basis, depending on the size and location, we may install stand-alone driveway, patio and sidewalk projects, although typically we do not do that work separate from excavation or foundation services.  
Can I rent a dumpster from you?No, we do not manage dumpster rentals. We recommend searching online for a waste management and/or dumpster rental provider near you.
