Concreting Contractor FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right concreter for your job

1. What is a concrete contractor?

Concrete contractors are skilled and experienced professionals who can provide an assessment for preparing and applying concrete. Contractors are required to identify and evaluate certain points before they begin work on a project. These include understanding details about the concrete, formwork, site preparation, placement, pouring and finishes.

Applying concrete to an area is not as easy as it seems. It requires much preparation by identifying an accurate amount of concrete to use and ensuring each concreted area is strong without regular maintenance. For example, laying down a concrete foundation requires a lot of preparation as the size, shape, depth, colour and finish of the concrete must be first determined. These are all required as each option can change during the installation process.

In addition, the area must first be cleared where the foundation will be installed. The entire area must be cleared of grass, rocks, shrubs, trees and garbage. This is to ensure that the area is levelled as much as possible. As soon as the area is ready, the formwork is installed and the cement is poured over. After the cement is poured, concreting contractors will then screed the top of the concrete to ensure it is compact, level and smooth.

 

2. How to find a good concrete contractor?

There are many things to keep in mind when it comes to hiring the best concrete contractor for your project. Searching for concrete contractors on iSeekplant is made easy, but there are a few points to consider before choosing the top supplier in your area.

  • Research: You will need to do your research if you want to hire a contractor with the best expertise. This ensures that your money is being well spent without cutting on quality. It’s also recommended to choose a concrete contractor that responds to your questions and gives you an explanation about the concreting process.
  • Check past projects: Experienced concrete contractors usually have a published portfolio or galley of their past projects that can often be found on their website. Past projects can provide assurance that a particular company conducts a range of quality services.
  • Check customer reviews: Customer feedback is valuable for the reputation of concreting companies. Therefore, be sure to check for customer testimonials and reviews.
  • Pricing: Once you’ve placed a search on iSeekplant, you can get quick quotes from the list of local concrete contractors. In most cases, you’ll want to save money, so it’s wise to choose the company with the cheapest pricing.
 

3. How is concrete poured?

The process of pouring concrete involves different stages. When preparing the area, concrete contractors remove all the unnecessary debris from the site such as rocks, trees, shrubs, grass and even old concrete. This exposes the soil and helps the levelling process to fill the sub-base gravel more easily.

Once the area is prepared, the formwork can be assembled and installed. The type of formwork used varies depending on the scale of the project. Formwork is available in different materials such as timber, plastic, steel and aluminium. In some cases, a combination of the materials is used to ensure formwork stability.

Once the formwork is all set, concrete contractors can begin mixing the cement. The cement is mixed with water using shovels, rakes and specific types of machinery to remove voids or air pockets from the mixture. The wet cement is then poured into the formwork and left to cure.
