Frequently Asked Questions
A: Yes but it will usually depend on how busy we are. Just contact us via our website and get a quote. Someone will get in touch with you soon.
A: It’s a symbol for square meter or meter squared which is a unit of area.
A: It’s a unit of pressure (stress/strength) and a measure of concrete compressive strength that means Mega Pascal.
A: Between 20 to 25 MPa. This varies depending upon what kind of surface. But it’s a high performance concrete. A standard compressive strength of a concrete is between 17.5 to 50 MPa. In more than 28 days, its strength increases.
A rebar is a mesh of steel wires used to strengthen and hold the concrete in tension. For this, we use the SL72 square mesh. It has a diameter of 7 mm bars, which are on a grid of 200 mm apart.
A: We highly encourage you to wait and not walk or drive on your new driveway for at least seven days. Though this depends on what kind of finish, it is usually fine to walk on new concrete after about twelve hours.
A: 28 days after placing the concrete.
A: Many factors are to be considered on how long it should be sealed. Abrasion, weather conditions, heavy weight staying too long on the concrete, are among the considerations. It is highly encouraged to reseal after every 2 years.
A: Yes, there are many techniques to repair cracks. Though it would be highly encouraged to resurface the entire section where the crack is for the reason that the repair will be more evident than the crack itself.
A: It’s a popular method of finishing concrete, exposed aggregate concrete is made by removing the top layer of cement and smoothing the surface where the concrete is poured. Not just decorative, adding aggregate also makes surfaces skid-resistant and durable.
A: Our standard lead time is two weeks.
A: It’s either there’s a lot of water in the mix which makes the concrete weaker or shrinkage from being too dry.
A: No, we don’t. We quote depending on the scope of work.
A: You can revamp your old concrete with our resurfacing service! You can also clean and seal if you just want to maintain the way it looks. Either way, it will become pristine. You can also add shapes or colours, if you want.
A: You can apply nonslip additives to concrete sealer before sealing or you can just apply a nonslip sealer.
A: It is an imprinted, embossed, or patterned concrete that is done to replicate stones like bricks, slates, and tile with the use of rubber stamps. What makes it different from a regular concrete is that with stamped, colour is added to the mix. It is also altered and shaped to be more visually appealing.
A: For aesthetics. Who doesn’t love an exterior who’ll turn heads and make neighbors want to ask where you had it made? It adds to the curb appeal.
A: Concrete, although long-lasting, is susceptible to cracks, discolouration, and other damages caused by extreme weather conditions. This is why it is a must to maintain its structure as well as its appearance by sealing it.
A: For standard-sized driveways (about 50sqm), it will take 1-2 days.
A: For large concrete slabs like driveways, we highly recommend that you use a concrete expansion joint. This will prevent cracking from tension or temperature changes.
A: It is also a decorative concrete that is stained or dyed to achieve a particular colour. The colour pigments are UV protected, too.
A: Stenciled concrete makes use of paper stencils and in comparison to stamped, it takes less time and effort to do. It can create contemporary patterns without the use of real stones.
A: Can be easily maintained, built to last, extensive creative options, and cost-effective.
A: You’ll have a stylish and trendy-looking driveway! Basically, your outdoor area will not look dull and plain.
