Concrete Orleans Supply
Preparing the concrete mixture added together with their corresponding proportions is one of the first and most essential steps of concrete construction.
To achieve a high-quality concrete structure, it is best to have well-mixed concrete. Another variable that has to be considered is the cement type, chemical admixtures, mineral, and amount of water added into the mixture.
It is also best to pick an experienced contractor to prepare the concrete mixture. At Ottawa Concrete, our technicians have gone through years of experience in this field, and they are skilled and well trained in designing the mix, according to the type of project.
All these details are essential to creating a sturdy and durable concrete structure for your Orleans project.
Coordination of different trades is an essential part of the construction process. This factor is significant in electrical and mechanical works.
Concrete Orleans Placing
Parking the concrete mixing truck as close to the site as possible is the best way to go.
In this way, the concrete can be conveniently poured directly into the forms. If it is not possible to park the concrete mixing truck nearby, it can also be transported through buckets by a wheelbarrow or by a crane.
Another way to do it is by transporting in buckets. This is best if it is impractical to transport the concrete by wheelbarrow or by a crane due to the size of the area or the distance of the construction site. It is also possible to have the fresh concrete mixture pumped directly into the construction site through concrete.
The concrete will then be transported via a system of pipes and hoses.
Finishing Process for Concrete in Orleans
Finishing is the final treatment of the concrete. This process is done after the concrete was mixed and placed to achieve the desired results and properties. Concrete finishing can be as simple as pushing a wide blade over the surface of the fresh concrete in order to achieve a flat surface. This process is also called screeding.
Screeding is the process of pushing a wide blade over the poured concrete to ensure a flat surface. If there are low spots that are not flattened during screeding, it can be filled and leveled by means of bull floating. Edging is performed after screeding and bull-floating to ensure the durability of the sides of the concrete and the edges. This will also protect the concrete from scaling and chipping.
Floating and troweling can also be used to smoothen the surface other than screeding. Floating and troweling is the process of compacting and smoothing the concrete surface, and compared to screeding, it is done when the concrete is already starting to harden.
Mechanical finishing can also be used to polish the surface and can serve as a decorative step to bring out the beauty of a special aggregate like creating marble chips. Once the concrete has already hardened, mechanical finishing can make the surface rough and less slippery.
Here at Ottawa Concrete, we also use concrete dyes and surface molds to imitate the appearance of decorative pavers, bricks, or even ceramic tile.
