How Are Your Sidewalks Constructed?
Sidewalks are poured in sections with expansion joints in between them. They typically are not made with rebar reinforcement but rather have an aggregate rock sub-base. Sidewalks are finished flat and can sometimes have a subtle finish to enhance grip and safety when the surface is wet.
Do I Need To Seal My New Concrete Driveway?
You should apply a high-quality sealer to all exterior concrete slabs exposed to freeze-thaw conditions. The sealer helps protect the concrete from moisture absorption, exposure to chemicals, grease and oil stains. On decorative colored concrete, a sealer will also help enhance the color. Sealer should be applied 30 days after initial concrete pour and can be reapplied every 2-4 years.
How Thick Should My Concrete Be Poured?
On average due to expansive soils the minimum thickness is 4”. Though, depending on the weight to be applied to a slab the thickness will increase.
How Long After Concrete Is Poured Can It Be Walked On?
In most general situations, the following day you can walk on the concrete without damage. However, depending on weather conditions and some other variables it can length or shorten this amount of time.
