Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
With another summer fast approaching, companies in the city of Houston are rolling out their home improvement solutions for protecting residential areas from the ravages of heat. The Houston Concrete is one of them, presenting its brand-new stamped concrete coating service for residents of the Houston metropolitan area.
Houston Concrete, true to its "stamped concrete" designation, is patterned and texturized to look like real stone. To start everything off, professionals create a compactable base material meant to provide stability. This is accomplished by placing redwood expansion joints and 0.375- to 0.5-inch rebar. Then the technicians cover the home and fences with Visqueen plastic sheeting. The sheeting protects the residence as the concrete is wheeled in. The concrete is then leveled for an even surface, as well as bullfloated and troweled for smoothness. The finishing touch to the concrete consists of brooming the material to provide a slip-resistant surface. Depending on the type of project, the concrete process can take between one to five days to complete.
Each Houston Concrete project comes with control joints to manage possible cracking during the hotter months. There are also transits to ensure that there is proper drainage. The concrete is characteristically sturdy, completed at 4 inches thick. Its rating is, at the very least, 3000 psi. That makes Houston Concrete tougher than its main competitors, which are usually rated at around 2500 to 2800 psi.
All Houston Concrete projects are overseen by Shea Ledford, the general foreman. He has over 12 years of concrete work experience. He specializes in patios, pool decks, foundations, and driveways for commercial, decorative, and residential projects. Ledford leads highly experienced crews of technicians who use time-tested concrete techniques and materials of the highest quality. Houston Concrete recommends that concrete surfaces be re-sealed at least once every three years for maintenance.
