Concrete Flatwork in Kansas City
What is Concrete Flatwork?
Flatwork is a broad term for any horizontal and flat building component. Concrete is the material most often used for flatwork because of its ability to be poured and cured into a completely flat surface. Concrete flatwork also tends to be the most resilient, as you will have to worry about replacing asphalt far more often than concrete. Pavers or stones have a tendency to settle differently and migrate in the soil.

What is the process of concrete flatwork?
Our concrete flatwork contractors will first meet with you to discuss the project and go over the details, including providing you with a free estimate for our services. Once the work gets started, first the area will be sectioned off and framed in wood. This wood frame serves as a mold for when the concrete is poured and will eventually be cut away. A sub-base is also made up either of aggregate rock or rebar—this lends your concrete extra strength and prevents settlement and cracks from forming.
How Much Does Concrete Flatwork Cost?
Concrete flatwork has a slightly higher initial cost than asphalt, but in the long run it is a much more economical option. Asphalt needs to be resealed every few years and will generally need replaced entirely within a decade or so. Concrete has a much lower maintenance and our experts know how to do concrete flatwork that holds up to the test of time. The actual cost will depend entirely upon the location and square footage of your flatwork needs, which is why we encourage you to reach out to us for a FREE estimate from our concrete flatwork contractors.
