Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What type of concrete do you use?

A: We use 6 Bag 4000 PSI Concrete Mix which is over the State Of Michigan Code Requirements

 

Q: What type of subgrade material (base) do you use?

A: We use Michigan Department of Transportation Specified 21AA Crushed Concrete instead  of sand which is then power compacted. 21AA is a more sturdy base than as sand as it stays together and does not wash away.

 

Q: Do you use reinforcement?

A: We use 10 gauge welded wire mesh reinforcement in most concrete applications. It works better than fibermesh as in it increases the strength of the concrete and ties all the concrete together. This you do not have uneven slabs and control joints do not separate.  Fibermesh only increases tensile strength of individual slabs and does not hold anything together.
