There is no more important step to developing your new parking lot than beginning with optimal grading and leveling. This must be done with care by an experienced professional.
Volcano Concrete has years of experience in ensuring proper level and grading of parking lot sites, large and small. We take the time to make sure that we start with a properly prepared lot before we begin any paving or other work to ensure the desired results.
The leveling and grading of your site involves bringing in fill dirt and compacting the area to avoid settling. Volcano Concrete will also plan for adequate drainage that will keep your parking lot traversable and easy to maintain for years to come.
Once your parking lot site has been properly prepared through leveling, grading, and compacting, Volcano Concrete sets the forms and places rebar to ensure long lasting, durable results. Our forms are designed with pressure treated cedar joints and strong rebar grids that create a firm foundation for your parking lot.
The joints in your concrete are carefully planned to allow for seasonal contraction and expansion that naturally occurs as temperatures change. Proper placement of these joints keeps you concrete strong while giving it space to be flexible as needed. Without expertise in this area, concrete will quickly crack, buckle, and deteriorate.
The final step in developing your new parking lot is the pouring of the concrete. This may seem simple, but expertise is required each step of the way to ensure attractive, long lasting results. The professionals at Volcano Concrete will ensure that all elements that effect the life of your concrete are considered when pouring your parking lot.
The mix of the concrete used is one of the most important elements that we must determine. Weather, traffic, and size of concrete slab all are calculated in order to develop the proper mix specifically for your site.
The professionals at Volcano Concrete have the expertise to work quickly and effectively, which is key in concrete pouring. Work must be done with precision before concrete begins to harden. This is a careful balance that has been mastered by the technicians at Volcano Concrete.
