Concrete Work Best Completed by Professionals

Home Repair

When searching for a professional to do any concrete work on a home, it is important to find a company that is knowledgeable and experienced. While each step in the process of pouring concrete may seem simple, it is, in fact, quite complicated. The frames have to be set up to the proper specifications, and the concrete has to be handled just right to avoid any issues. It is so important to research concrete companies in Denver to ensure only the most skilled one is hired for such a complex job. An experienced concrete company can help with any concrete needs a homeowner might have.

Concrete Demolition

Breaking concrete is very difficult, requiring the proper tools to get the job done. Depending on the thickness of the slab and the amount of concrete that needs to be excavated, a professional will use either a sledgehammer or jackhammer to break it apart. Once broken, the pieces will be removed and disposed of. Bolt cutters or a reciprocating saw may be necessary to remove mesh or reinforcing bars that were used to reinforce the concrete. A professional concrete company will have access to these tools, and know which to use to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Driveways, Sidewalks, and Walkways

Concrete is commonly used for paving driveways, sidewalks, and walkways. Pouring a concrete slab is not as simple as it may appear—there are certain requirements that must be met depending on what the slab will be used for. A driveway will need to be thicker than a patio or walkway given the weight it will need to withstand in daily use. Prior to pouring concrete, the slab will be framed out using wood. When this is finished, stone will be leveled off in the frame as the base. Finally, once the concrete is poured, it must be smoothed out just right to create a flat surface for use.


Building concrete steps is a complicated process. Local building codes must be checked prior to starting work on a set of steps to ensure they are completed correctly. A form is made and set on top of a pre-existing concrete slab, then concrete is poured and smoothed out, helping create each step.


Concrete slabs are the foundation of any sturdy home. These slabs should be poured by a professional and experienced concrete company to ensure they are up to code. These foundations hold the weight of the house, and need to be done properly to ensure that house will stand strong for years to come.

Stamped and Colored Concrete

The two most popular treatments used to give concrete a unique look are stamping and coloring. Stamping concrete consists of using a pattern or texture to create a design in the concrete. Oftentimes, these patterns are made to resemble different types of stone, such as flagstone, slate, and brick, but can also be made to resemble wood and tile. This treatment is best done by a professional to ensure the pattern comes out perfectly. If done incorrectly, any imperfections will be easily noticeable.

Concrete can be colored in a variety of ways, but the most common is with the use of acid. The outcome of an acid wash varies based on the concrete it’s used on and the way the treatment is applied. Unless done by an expert, the treatment can result in disaster, as the acid treatment is finicky and must be applied just perfectly to avoid issues with the coloring.

Professional concrete companies in Denver can help homeowners with any concrete needs they may have, ranging from demolition to pouring slabs, and even adding decorative touches like stamping or coloring. When in need of any concrete work, it is best to call a professional who has the knowledge to do the job correctly.
