Project Specific Information: Residential Concrete
The most typical residential concrete services we offer, are the replacement of your existing concrete sidewalk and or concrete driveway. We also offer the construction of new concrete sidewalks and concrete driveways.
Replacement of residential concrete sidewalks and driveways consist of breaking up the existing sidewalk and driveway and hauling it away. Typically most residential sidewalk and driveway replacement projects, require the installation of additional sand fill to bring the settled dirt level back up to the proper level.
The new concrete sidewalk and driveway is then put in place by forming for the new concrete. Typical form work consists of 1”x4” or 2”x4” lumber supported by wood stakes driven into the ground.
Steel re-enforcement is then installed. The most typical steel re-enforcement used in residential concrete sidewalks and driveways, is a 10 gauge roll wire mesh. Installation of steel rebar is also used to tie the new sidewalk and driveway into an existing abutting house slab or other existing concrete.
Expansion joint material, typically used in most residential sidewalks and driveways, are a series pressure treated lumber; usually 1x4’s. The expansion joints are typically placed approximately every 300 to 400 square feet depending on the layout. Expansion joints in sidewalks are typically placed approximately every 15 to 20 apart, depending on the layout.
The new concrete is then placed and finished. The concrete that is used in most typical residential flatwork, sidewalks and driveways is a 3,000 PSI (pounds per square inch). The finish of the concrete is typically a broom finish.
Residential concrete used in most of the New Orleans residential projects consist of sand, cement and aggregate mixed together. The most typical thickness of the concrete used in sidewalks and driveways are four (4”) inches thick.
