The (3-4 man) crew will arrive at your home and start the ground preparation. First, the ground will be marked with spray paint or a string line. Then a small sod cutter is used to remove the grass where the curb is to be installed. This process will NOT disturb existing beds.
Concrete is mixed with color additives on site using a small mixer mounted on our trailer. There will be no heavy equipment or concrete trucks on your property.
The concrete is fed into the extruder from a wheelbarrow. This creates the shape of the continuous concrete curb.
The curb is then hand-finished using a trowel and special stamping tools.
Control/Expansion joints are cut approximately every 3 feet while the concrete is wet. The cut is approximately 1/3 of the way through the curb. This is to minimize cracking.
The curb is sealed using a clear concrete sealer.
