Concrete Slab Services
Concrete slabs are a durable material that is the go-to for footings and foundations. Concrete can be very useful for multiple reasons besides just creating a walkway or sidewalk. If you have to support a heavy object or building, or you are trying to create a unique outdoor space by adding a patio, concrete slabs can be very beneficial. Franklin Concrete Company offers several options for creating outdoor living spaces and pouring concrete slabs for many different applications. If you need help deciding or would like more information about pricing, give us a call today.
Before the concrete can be poured, there are a few things that must be taken care of in advance. By planning ahead with our team, we make the process as seamless as possible. First, your local building authority will need to be contacted so that it can be accurately determined if you will need to obtain a permit for your project. There may also be some extra rules that will need to be followed about where we can pour. Utility lines will need to be marked before the pour happens to avoid hitting any lines and causing utility problems. It will also be necessary for us to discover how much concrete will need to be mixed before we come out to your construction site.
A common reason for homeowners to pour a concrete slab in their yard is so that a level area is available for utility use such as air-conditioning units or trash can storage stations. In many cases, the slab may need to be extended past the measurement for the utility to create a standing space. We have many different mixes available for quicker setting needs and more durable slabs. We will work with you to decide what the best concrete mix options will be for you and your specific utility needs.
A hot tub is a fabulous amenity to have in your yard and will need to be properly maintained over time to keep it working properly. A great way to keep erosion and damage from affecting our hot tub is to lay down a concrete slab that will support the hot tub. Hot tubs can also become very heavy, holding lots of water and with the added weight of 4-6 people, your hot tub could potentially end up sinking downward. A concrete slab will keep this from happening.
Many people enjoy having a basketball hoop outside their home, but the common placement, which is near the road, can be cause for concern. This can be unsafe for kids, as cars are driving by and putting them in danger. A concrete slab can be the perfect solution to keep kids and adults both from playing in the street around dangerous hazards.
