The professional concrete contractors at A. Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving, Inc. recently had the opportunity to install new concrete steps for an apartment complex in Minneapolis, MN.
The property manager at the apartment complex noticed that the stairs were beginning to wear. Over the years, the combination of the snow, ice, freeze/thaw cycles and salt being applied to the main entrance and side entrance stairways had really worn on the concrete. Plus the handrails had some signs of corrosion, despite the fact that they had been kept up well over the years. After searching Google and social media for a reputable concrete paving expert in the area, he found us and gave us a call.
We arrived two days later for the initial inspection. We proposed that the existing stairways and hand railings be removed and replaced. We gave an estimate for the process in addition to the installation of new concrete steps, landing pads and a nice set of wrought iron hand railing for each side. The customer was happy with what we had to offer and asked us to start on the job when it was most convenient for us.
We had an opening the following Tuesday. Our crew got started early in the morning. We started by removing the main entrance stairway while leaving the side entrance open so residents had stairs available for use. Once removed, we installed the new steps, landing pad and hand railing. Once the stairs were completely ready to be used, we started on the side entrance steps. Once the project was complete, the new stairways looked great and the iron railings really added a nice touch.
Thank you for choosing to work with A. Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving, Inc.
A. Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving, Inc. had the opportunity to install a new concrete driveway for homeowners in Bloomington, MN.
The couple had us install a new concrete stairway and pad as well as a front sidewalk, measuring 21’ x 4’ total, in 2013, so when they needed to have their concrete driveway redone, they knew who to call! They asked us to come take a look whenever we could work them into our schedule to get the ball rolling.
We were working in the area and were able to stop by first thing the next morning. Since they were both currently working from home, this worked for their schedule. The long Minnesota winters had taken their toll on this driveway as the concrete had many large cracks in it, plus the top layer of the driveway was showing significant signs of wear from salt usage. We told them we could get to their job the next Thursday and they were thrilled.
Our concrete paving crew arrived first thing on that Thursday morning. We began by cutting the concrete joint between the footings in the garage so we could remove the garage pad and the large driveway. We then surveyed the sub base to ensure the driveway would have proper drainage. Next we recompacted the sub base and set the concrete forms to pour the new 78 x 20” concrete driveway.
The new driveway looks great and the client was very pleased with our work and the improved overall appearance of the home with the new garage pad and driveway.

A plumbing contractor who had increased in size was needed to have his gravel driveway leading to the office replaced with a dependable driveway. The contractor had doubled in business within the last two years, so he had hired quite a few new workers. The driveway was getting a lot of traffic from customers, workers, and equipment. The owner of the business had previously hired us for work at his house, so he didn’t hesitate to call the top concrete company in Bloomington, A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving, and we told him we could install the new driveway without a problem.
The A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving crew met with the customer to give him an estimate on a new sturdy and dependable driveway. The crew measured the current driveway, then gave the customer an estimate he was pleased with, then he scheduled us to start on the driveway as soon as possible. The crew returned on the day scheduled, then started prepping the area and constructing the concrete driveway. The crew completed the project ahead of schedule and right on budget. The customer was happy to see that the driveway was done and looking great. The customer said he thought about getting an asphalt driveway installed, but when he learned that a concrete one could last him up to fifty years he had to go with it, because it was a wiser investment. The customer said that once again A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving came through for him again and proved that we are the only concrete company in Bloomington to call.

A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving was called upon by a homeowner in Edina who rediscovered some of the joys of cooking after a friend had given him a new grill as a gift.

A dad had noticed some the gradual, natural damage that slowly eroded and crumbled his steps over the course of his home’s life. He never kept the maintenance up on the steps, because he always thought that his concrete steps would last forever. His wife stumbled on the crumbled steps one afternoon carrying in the groceries and she sprained her ankle. Her husband knew this accident could have been much worse and knew he could no longer not do something about the steps, so he decided to upgrade his Bloomington concrete steps with an attractive and safe new installation done by A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving.
The A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving crew arrived at the Bloomington home and started removing the old concrete steps. The crew started installing the new steps and had the job done for the homeowner ahead of schedule.

The customer said that A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving provided him with Bloomington concrete steps that make his home look wonderful, but most of all he doesn’t have to worry about anyone tripping and being hurt on the steps either. The customer thanked our crew members over and over and said that we were a professional and knowledgeable company that provided him with concrete steps Bloomington homeowners would approve of.
A few weeks ago, A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving was contacted by a homeowner in Minneapolis. The homeowner was a baseball fan who was getting really excited about spring training. He had just purchased a new grill on sale during the winter months, but realized that he would need an excellent concrete patio in Minneapolis to be able to enjoy it fully. He wanted to have the patio ready by spring, so he called us to come measure the space and to provide an estimate for him. He approved, and we’ll be installing it as one of our first projects in the next season.
The A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving experts arrived at the home in Minneapolis. The homeowner showed us the space where he wanted the concrete patio installed. We measured the space, then gave him the estimate, which he was delighted with. We let the homeowner know that we could do all types of different patios, then we showed him some pictures of previous concrete patios in Minneapolis that we had done for our customers. The homeowner was really impressed with a few of the patios, then said he would think about the decision and let us know. The homeowner must have been impressed with our estimate and previous work, because just a few days later he called us to have us do his patio. The baseball fan said he talked it over with his wife and they both agreed that A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving is the professional contractor to do their Minneapolis concrete patio.
