Top Concreting related questions
The cost of concreting will depend on the size of the job and what finish you need for the project. A plain slab will cost around £65 to £85 per square metre, while more decorative finishes can cost up to £150 per square metre. Some areas that need to meet building and council standards, such as driveways and house slabs, will cost more to cover the compliance aspect. Specify the details of your project to get the best quote from concrete contractors around you.
Concrete contractors mix concrete using cement and sand using cement mixers or cement trucks for different construction projects. Once the concrete is mixed, they lay, spread, compact, and finish the concrete to create foundations, slabs, paths, driveways, and other types of infrastructure.
A contractor who wants to work in concreting jobs can take different courses, such as ready-mix concrete technology. Concreting skills are generally picked up through on-the-job training, as an apprentice or trainee for construction companies or civil engineering projects.
Depending on the size of the area, it can take 24 to 48 hours for concrete to dry, and up to a month to cure completely. You should avoid putting anything heavy on the concrete for at least a week.
Find the best concreter near you by checking their reviews and any examples of their previous work. When you hire a local concrete contractor in your area through Airtasker, you can see what previous customers say about their work, review their profile, and make sure they’re a good match for your task.
Prepare your area by ensuring there’s clear access, minimal debris, and space for tools and equipment. If you have pets, it’s a good idea to arrange pet sitting or tie them well out of the way so they don’t get into wet concrete. Depending on what’s being concreted, your contractor will usually take the prep work from there, including excavation, levelling, and measurement.
What do concrete services include?
Concrete services involve more than just mixing and pouring concrete. Your local concreter can help with everything from giving advice, cutting concrete, and removing old concrete, to laying the slab and installing things like washing lines and fence posts. Here’s what you can expect when you hire concrete contractors in your area:
Concrete contractors don’t just install new concrete - they’ll also offer concrete cutting to get rid of the old one. They might do this before you lay new concrete, or if you decide to move a shed or patio, and replace your old concrete with grass or gardens. Contractors use heavy-duty tools to safely remove concrete, cut up and remove old pathways, remove washing lines, pull out fence posts, and remove broken sections of concrete to prepare for repairs.
Preparing the base
Before laying new concrete, your contractor will start preparing the base to ensure a long-lasting, quality finish for your concreting that doesn’t crack or crumble. First, they’ll measure and mark out the area and prepare the base by levelling the ground. If the soil is clay-based or you’ll have heavy loads on the concrete, your contractor may create a reinforcement layer with gravel first. This is compacted with a plate-based leveller, giving each layer a smooth finish before the next is laid.
Setting up form guides and insulation
Once the ground is level, your concreter will mark out the area with form guides and string to ensure a consistent depth of concrete. Your concreter will build a slight angle into the concrete to allow for water runoff. If the concrete is for an indoor area, they’ll also install damp-proofing and insulation before laying the concrete.
Laying concrete slabs
Concrete slabs are popular for house foundations, concrete flooring, sheds, and carports, thanks to their durability, termite-proofing, and thermal properties. The slack thickness will depend on the ground underneath, as well as the expected load that it will hold. A concreter near you will advise on factors like insulation and waterproofing for your concrete slab for local conditions. Then they’ll order a concrete delivery, ensuring your concrete is mixed consistently and poured within the form guides. They’ll use a shovel to make sure the concrete fills out each edge and corner and remove air pockets. Finally, they’ll use a screed to level out the concrete, using the formwork as a guide.
Laying concrete driveways
A new concrete driveway can dramatically improve the street appeal of your home, and there are many decorative concrete options available. Whether you need a new driveway or a replacement, or you want to add a stone or paved look with coloured concrete, a local concreter near you can help. Driveway concreting often requires council approval, so it’s important to find a concrete contractor nearby that is aware of local by-laws and can ensure compliance.
Once the concrete for your slab or driveway is poured and starts to set, your local concrete contractor will finish the surface. They’ll use a broom to make a roughened, easier-to-grip surface for outdoor areas, or a trowel to make it smoother for indoor flooring. Your new concrete will need 24-48 hours to dry, and shouldn’t be used heavily for at least seven days. If your concrete is indoors, you may want to request another finish, like concrete floor polishing to help seal your concrete and give it an on-trend industrial look.
