Perfect for Small Jobs
A small concrete contracting job might involve pouring a small slab for a walkway, patio, or driveway. It would involve measuring and preparing the area, marking off the area to be poured, laying out a form to contain the concrete, and ordering the right materials. On the day of pouring, the concrete would be mixed, and then spread and leveled out. The concrete would be left to cure and harden, and then any additional finishing steps, such as troweling or staining, could be completed. Finally, the area could be sealed to protect it from the elements and to ensure a long-lasting job.

A Successful Concrete Project
There are many things to consider when planning your concrete contracting project. First, you need to ensure the site is properly prepared. This includes clearing the area of debris and weeds, compacting the soil, and laying a gravel base of 3–4 inches. When pouring the concrete, you should ensure that it is spread evenly and that there are no air pockets or voids. After the concrete is poured, you should use a trowel to smooth the surface. You may also need to use a concrete edger to give the edges a finished look. After pouring the concrete, you will need to wait at least 24 hours before applying any weight to the surface. You should also cover the concrete with plastic or wet burlap to help it cure properly. How many square feet 7 yards can poor varies depending on how deep the hole you are filling is. A typical driveway is 4 inches thick. Going 4 inches thick, 1 yard pours 81 square feet. Our friendly customer service representatives are also happy to help determine how much concrete you will need.
