Concrete Flatwork FAQs

What is Concrete Flatwork?

Concrete flatwork refers to any concrete work installed in a fixed area on a flat surface including floors, patios, sidewalks, parking lots, and concrete stairs are all included under the umbrella of concrete flatwork. There’s more to a great concrete paving job than pouring and forgetting. Contact Cardinal Concrete Services today to learn more from a professional.

Is a Permit Required for all Jobs?

It depends on the size and scope of the work. As a rule of thumb, for any concrete project that alters or establishes an existing structure, there will almost certainly be a permit required. However, for concrete pavement such as a commercial parking lot or residential driveway, it is typically not required to have a permit. 

These rules may change from location to location, and any owner should make sure to examine all local codes and laws before the commencement of work. 

What is the Best Plan for Sloped Surfaces?

When it comes to sloped surfaces, there are typically two options. The first option is to match the existing slope with your concrete pavement. This is usually the most cost-effective approach and can provide a sufficient driving surface as long as the sloped area is not too intense. 

However, in the event of an extreme slope, the most recommended approach is to install a poured concrete retaining wall. This makes it possible to create a much more level surface area, while still maintaining structural integrity.
