4. How do I protect my concrete from harsh materials?
Although concrete is known for it's incredible strength and durability, it won't last forever. Intense winters, wind driven rain and harsh chemicals such as grease, gasoline and oil can increase the deterioration of your concrete. That is why we suggest using a concrete sealer. The protection benefits from a concrete sealer can greatly reduce the risk of chipping, cracking, and wearing down of the concrete.

It is not uncommon to see stains on your concrete from such things as mildew, oil and grease, potted plants, rust. Thankfully there are many DIY solutions that can be found online depending on the nature of the stain. Make sure to do a small test spot on your concrete prior to applying any of the suggested DIY stain remedies.

8. Why does concrete crack?
There are multiple factors that contribute to the cracking of concrete. Excess water in the mix, rapid drying of the concrete, the wrong strength of concrete used, or lack of control joint. We take all of these factors into consideration and complete your concrete job with the highest quality to minimize the risk of future cracking.
9. How long does it take for cement to set so i can walk on it?
Depending on the wind, humidity and sunlight, concrete will take various amounts of time to cure. As a general rule we tell customers that they can walk on it within 1-2 days and drive on it within 5-7 days.
