The Process of our Concrete Preparation Services

First, we start with job assessment. Different types of concrete work require different methods of ground preparation. The start of the preparation sequence includes removing surface vegetation and topsoil, excavating grade, surface prep and fill placement. Our thorough and well trained staff ensure that every step is completed the right way so that your concrete looks great and lasts long.

Machinery for Concrete Preparation Services

Rammers: Also referred to as “jumping jacks,” these work by delivering high-impact forces at a rapid rate to the ground. We use rammers in trenches and smaller spaces. They are used for three types of compaction: vibration, kneading, and impact. The soils they are especially effective for are clay and silt.

Vibratory Plates: By spinning weights at a high speed, vibratory plates are able to deliver low amplitude and high frequency by transferring the force to a flat plate which travels across the ground. These are the most popular ground compactors, and are best suited for compacting granular soils.

Rolling Compactors: These are the best for asphalt applications and for compacting sand and clay. They provide a kneading action that is ideal for compacting trenches.

Rubber Tire Roller: For road building and large projects, we use a rubber tire roller to compact the soil. It uses 11 pneumatic tires on an extremely heavy frame. Compaction is achieved by kneading and exerting pressure on the soil.
