Concrete is used in a wide variety of paving projects, including but not limited to sidewalks, ramps, curbs, gutters, barriers, and even signage. For a complete commercial pavement installation, it’s important to have some concrete work in addition to asphalt pavement so that your commercial property is safe and inviting for all visitors.

Concrete vs Asphalt
While asphalt is made up of aggregates like gravel and sand mixed with liquid asphalt binders, concrete is a mixture of aggregates, water, and concrete. Asphalt is applied hot and cures by cooling, while concrete is poured cold and cures through water evaporation. Both are very durable and require a gravel sub-base to remain stable.
- Sidewalks – Concrete sidewalks are a simple and beautiful way to finish a commercial property, and our concrete paving experts can provide a variety of decorative finishes including stamped and colored concrete, exposed aggregates, or a classic broom finish.
- Drainage – Concrete is idea for drainage systems like gutters because it allows water to flow away from asphalt parking lots or other pavement installations.
- Concrete Curbs & Parking Bumpers – Concrete provides valuable finishing for asphalt edges and parking lots with steel-reinforced curbs and parking bumpers.
- Bollards & Barriers – A bollard is a short post that creates a barrier for cars while allowing pedestrians to pass through, and concrete bollards are made with steel rebar surrounded with concrete in various shapes.
Though properly installed concrete paving is durable and beautiful, damage can occur. A cracked sidewalk is a liability issue; deteriorated concrete curbs can be hazardous for vehicles; and improper drainage can cause a host of pavement issues. Concrete can crack or degrade because of vehicle traffic causing stress, erosion of the underlayers, or moisture penetrating the pavement. Our concrete repair services target these conditions to ensure that your sidewalks or curbs remain stable and beautiful for years.
