Working With Us
Great Lakes Concrete provides the concrete look and design you need to create the perfect outdoor living space from driveways and walkways to pool decks and patios.
There are so many more reasons why concrete is a better option than asphalt.
First of all, concrete lasts longer. Second, asphalt driveways heat up faster and create potholes and cracks where there is wheel traffic or vehicles sitting on them. Concrete will not create potholes. Third, asphalt driveways are typically cheaper to install but need more care over time to protect them. Fourth, having a concrete driveway will add value to your home or business.
We start with the removal and disposal of existing material.
Then we install a minimum of 18” of A gravel then we compact the new base to ensure your concrete project will last for decades.
Then we form your project using 2x6’s we pour a minimum of 5” concrete and install wire mesh. In some cases, we use a fiber mesh to double up the strength of the concrete.
Then we apply the finish of your choice to complete your concrete project.
The next day we insert expansion cuts to help in the prevention of cracking. We wash and clean up.
** Sealer is offered at an additional charge.
