A Concrete Supplier Explains What to Expect Before Your Paving Project, Wallingford Center, Connecticut

From patios to sidewalks, concrete projects are a great way to update your home and increase your property value. Between the time you choose a construction company to complete your project and the day the concrete is finally poured, there's plenty of preparation taking place. According to the experts, here are three things you can expect before the work begins.

3 Things to Expect Before Your Concrete Project Begins

1. Permits

Most cities and counties require permits for any type of construction to take place. The concrete company you've hired will need to apply for the necessary permits before the project begins. Typically, these are approved quickly, but if there are any issues, there could be delays in your project.

2. Utility Markings

Since most projects require excavation, your paving team will request all your utility companies come to the site and mark where important underground items are. This process will prevent any damage from occurring to the gas and plumbing lines, which would be inconvenient to you and potentially dangerous to the crew.

3. Base Preparation

concreteBefore your concrete can be laid, your contractor will need to prepare the area. If the project consists of something like a driveway, the old material will need to be completely removed. The preparation takes place by grading out all vegetation and rocks before it is smoothed down and compacted to create a sturdy base for the concrete to be poured.

Once these tasks are complete, your paving project can take place. This process is usually completed within a week, depending on the weather and temperatures.
