I am looking to extend my pool deck and have what's there replaced as well. I spoke to a few neighbors who have done this in the recent past and each one has said who they have used but also said they would not reuse them at all. So I am looking for recommendations on a good concrete person/company that will do the work in a timely manner (actually show up).

Thanks!!

We used Schneider Concrete to do two patios and walkway out of 4'x4' squares, in out backyard.  We hired him, pretty much, because he actually showed up to give us a bid.  His price seemed reasonable to us and we really like the work he did.

Whoever you choose to do the work, I would ask that they add Fibermesh to the concrete. It is tiny polypropylene fibers that strengthen the concrete in every direction. Our driveway extension has Fibermesh and after nearly 20 years we have yet to have a single crack.

Still needs expansion cuts in the concrete even with the fibers.


Angies List has a few places listed with reviews if you are interested in that kind of reference....

I'm practicing being you.  It is just so difficult for me to be so consistently limited, though.

Left OK over 40-yrs. ago with Williams Bro. Passing through 4-yrs. ago I saw downtown's potential. I've lived in 200 places & love good citiies.  Tulsa's phoenix rise is reason enough to stick around.  Besides,myou can't fully be an Okie except in Oklahoma.

Ya don't gotta have 'em, but under certain conditions, "they" sometimes can be of great benefit, as can knowing what you're discussing before you hit the "Post" button.

"They" are not the same.

Hint:  Before typing another inane comment, look for a reliable source of information about subjects such as: concrete curing, contraction, control joints, expansion, and fiber reinforced concrete online* or in a printed glossary of very common, basic, elementary construction terms/concepts/methods.

Take your vorpal sword in hand and slay the manxome foe of ignorance.  Read.  Learn.  Enlighten yourself.  That's the very best, most concrete recommendation I can give you.   Wink

*Some online sources, such as the frumious Wikipedia and discussion boards frequented by ignorant trolls, can be misleading or even false.  Be cautious.  Use judgment.  Discriminate.  Discern.  Don't let your mind be polluted with tainted "facts" while you're standing (or sitting) in uffish thought.

Remember Boo, some still people consider Wikipedia scholarly material when they want to chime in on someone else’s conversation...completely unarmed.
