Everything You Need to Know About Concreting
In order to produce the desired concrete structure, ingredients must be properly mixed, placed, shaped, retained, and cured – all within specific time constraints. These preparations involve various technical details that only a skilled and qualified concreter can perform.
What Is Concreting?
Concreting is the process of mixing and placing concrete. Concrete is a composite material made from a combination of water, aggregate and cement. Additives and chemicals are often included in the mixture to improve the physical properties of the concrete, for example, resistance to damage or electrical conductivity.
Concrete forms a fluid mass when initially mixed, but later forms a hard substance that binds all of the components into a durable, stone-like material. The cement in concrete makes it weak in tension and vulnerable to cracking under heavy loads, so it often requires reinforcement. This can be done by constructing reinforcing bars, steel fibres, plastic fibres, or glass fibres before pouring the cement.
Finding the Right Concreter
One of the best ways to find a good concreter is by looking at the business’ reviews. When researching local companies, make sure to check their reviews to see what clients have to say about their work quality, costs, and procedures.
Oneflare has an extensive list of trusted local tradespeople in Australia Listed businesses are verified to have valid licences, operational permits, and insurance, so you can be sure that whomever you choose will be able to complete their work both legally and safely.
What Are the Costs Involved in Concreting?
The costs will often include the procurement of materials, hourly rates, the type of finishing, the scale of the project, equipment hire and the experience of the tradesman.
It is highly important that you ask for a detailed quote when discussing the concreting project with a tradesman so that you can understand what is included and what services are an extra charge. Rest assured, if anything bad should happen, Oneflare provides a $500 guarantee if you hire a tradesman with a Oneflare Verified Badge.
Paul was excellent to work with. They did a tough job well. He listened and actioned any requests I had. He followed through to completion and if I had more concreting work I would definitely invite him back.
Jamie was very professional, turned up on time. He did a concrete slab for my back yard. Looks amazing, would recommend to others, as I would used his service again.
