Concrete Steps and Concrete Walkways Installation Process
Our process varies depending on the concrete project we are working on. Particularly for concrete steps and walkways, we follow the step-by-step process below to deliver high-end quality results:
Step 1: Delivery of Materials and Preparation of the Project Site
Before starting any project, we ensure all traditional materials and tools are on site. This enables us to start and finish the project on time. Once the materials are ready, we begin with clearing up the space. It is essential to clean up the project area to avoid any hindrances as we move on with the project. It also enables us to begin on a clean slate, literally. When the site is clean and ready, we make measurements, ensuring we follow what is on the plan. We then place form boards made of wood. The panels serve as the skeleton of the walkways or steps. We install wire mesh or metal rebar for stairs to reinforce poured concrete. Meanwhile, for a more solid foundation for your concrete, we also install a gravel base.
Step 2: Mix Concrete
It is vital to use only new concrete mixes in any concrete project, stepping stones or stairs. Using a unique concrete mix enables us to deliver quality results that last for years. We use either readily available concrete mix or customized depending on the project. For the latter, we follow a specific formula to ensure we have a mixture that's durable and fit for the space. We crush gravel or sand and add them into the mix using a plate compactor.
Step 3: Pour Concrete
The concrete pour step is the most crucial part of the entire process. We carefully pour concrete to avoid the creation of air pockets. An excellent concrete slab is solid and flawless. No matter what you envision for your concrete walkway (if you want it textured or with patterns), it is vital to have a solid foundation. During this process, we also do stamping or replicate other materials like a natural stone of your choice. With wet concrete, we also add a railing for concrete steps.
Meanwhile, we use control joints or a bull float for a ground-level and smooth finish. What's nice about concrete is you can pour it even with wet weather. Thus, you do not have to delay even when it's raining outside.
Step 4: Dry Concrete
The curing process is crucial to ensure your concrete walkway's durability and longevity or step. While it's exciting to use your concrete walkways or steps right away, waiting is vital. For concrete stairs, the curing time is at least 21 days. It is also only after this time that we remove the formwork. Meanwhile, concrete walkways usually dry up in 24 to 48 hours. But, it's best to wait for 21 to 28 days for the concrete surface to cure appropriately.
Step 5: Quality Check
We have a dedicated team that does quality checks upon completion of our concrete walkways and steps' installation process. We do so to ensure we deliver quality output.
