Concrete flatwork surfaces include walkways, curbs, concrete aprons, sidewalks, foundations, driveways, patios, and more. Concrete is the best material for flatwork due to its ability to form perfectly flat and even surfaces. Pavement Solutions is a pioneer in concrete flatwork technology.
Concrete Flatwork Instillation
Concrete flatwork is created using a frame and rebar or aggregate sub base. The poured concrete is strengthened from the sub base, preventing crack formation under pressure and age. First we section off and frame the work area. After that a wooden frame is made to act as a mold for the pouring concrete. The frame ensures the poured concrete is at its designated depth, dries evenly and flat.
Sidewalks are poured in sections typically made using an aggregate base and expansion joints in-between. For enhanced grip and safety during the wet season additional sealants can be added on.

Poured concrete is compacted with an extruder to strengthen the curb for fracture cracking prevention. Control joints are placed to allow curbing expansion during the winter season. High quality sealant is used to protect the concrete from oxidation.
Existing pavement is removed to prepare the concrete apron location. The area is then leveled to ensure the apron will be properly placed when its installed. Concrete is poured and the apron is leveled to be smooth and sleek looking.
Advantages of Concrete
- Weather Management – A lower temperature is generated from concrete surfaces.
- Low Maintenance – Concrete pavement requires minimal upkeep. It only needs joint sealing and annual cleaning.
- Long lifespan – Properly maintained concrete can last for twenty or thirty years.
