Here is a list of common questions that our clients ask us. If you need more information don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

Do you install any sub base preparation for the concrete projects?

Yes, we use a granular base underneath before concrete placement and compact with a mechanical plate tamper.

Are there different kinds of concrete?

Yes. Concrete can be made to order in terms of strength, workability, and durability. There is even a form of environmentally friendly concrete that allows water to pass through. This pervious concrete easily drains storm water into the subsoil keeping it from running off into sewers, rivers and streams.

Does concrete have to be grey?

Not at all. There is an almost limitless palette of special finishes for concrete pavements and slabs. With the addition of color and a skilled decorative concrete contractor, concrete can take on almost any shape, pattern, color, or texture, in both exterior and interior applications.

Will Superior Materials place the concrete for me?

No. Placing the concrete for your project is your concrete contractor’s responsibility. Our role is to produce, deliver, and discharge a superior quality concrete mix that is specified for your project, in a safe and timely manner.

Is there a difference in the concrete mix in the summer and winter times?

Yes. In the summer there is an additive that acutally slows the drying process and helps the concrete to cure properly.

Is there anything I can do to prevent concrete cracking?

Generally your concrete subcontractor will follow a procedure to ensure the concrete cures properly and prevents most cracking. Your contractor may give you instructions to periodically water you concrete to help in this process.
