Young Couple Updates older home with A. Pietig

A couple who had just moved into a house that they had renovated the interior of the home. They wanted a number of services done on the exterior of their home now. They wanted a new concrete driveway as well as extensive work in the backyard. They called us first as we were referred to them by one of their friends who had work done to their home with us. Before we could give the couple an estimate we asked to meet with them at their home, so we could see what kind of work they wanted done in their backyard and for their concrete driveway.

We met with the couple the next day. They showed us their current driveway and what they wanted to have done. We then looked over the backyard, and we offered several different options including a concrete patio, paver patio and concrete steps. We gave the couple the estimate and they both agreed it was a great price. They wanted us to start first thing Monday morning. Our crew arrived promptly on time at the beginning of the following week.

We Started Building the Concrete Driveway and Patio

In addition to the Minneapolis concrete driveway we did concrete steps in the backThe crew started removing the current driveway. Once it was removed the crew started working on the base. We then added edge restraints anchored by spikes, so there wouldn’t be any shift. The crew worked on the concrete driveway until it was finished, then they started working on the paver patio and concrete steps. Although this was a big project, we were able to get the job done on time and on budget. Each evening the couple would look at the work that we had done and they both complimented the crew for doing a good job.

When we had each project completed for the homeowners, the crew cleaned up all the tools and equipment and let the couple know that we were finished. The couple said the work we had done was phenomenal. The both agreed that our company was the expert in Minneapolis concrete driveways that homeowners could depend on and trust for quality craftsmanship and skilled work. The wife said she was so happy that their friends recommended us, because we went that extra mile to get the job done on budget. She was really happy with how everything turned out, and that our knowledgeable concrete contractors gave them options and solutions that were better than what they were looking to have done in the first place.

New Minneapolis Brick Paver Pathway for Vet!

A customer in Minneapolis reached out to A Pietig Concrete & Brick Paving. The customer is a US Navy veteran and wanted to have her old walkway path redone. Her current concrete had many cracks and looked shabby. The customer wanted to replace the concrete walkway with brick.  One of our specialists arrived at the customer’s home and evaluated the existing concrete. We assured her we could get the job done well and would be honored to help her with her needs because we are proud to be the brick pavers Minneapolis prefers.

The brick paver crew started removing the current concrete very soon after the initial meeting. Once the concrete was removed, the crew prepped the ground area for the bricks that were going to be laid. When the crew had the area ready they laid the brick on the path. The customer was impressed by the discipline and skill of the crew. By late afternoon the crew had the brick walkway in place and looking great. The customer was really happy  with how the brick paving looked. She was amazed at how efficient and professional each of the crew members were.

At the end of the day A Pietig was very satisfied to be able to provide a safe and attractive walkway for this customer. We thrive on always providing affordable brick paving services.

New Concrete Steps & Brick Pillars Create Beautiful Entrance for Minneapolis Home

This Minneapolis home made quite the transformation once we were done with it! We added brick pillars, brick buttress, concrete walls, walks and steps. It added a very elegant entrance to this beautiful home. To begin, we tore away the old steps and excavated the area. We started with the stairs by measuring out where they would be and put stakes into he ground to build the framework. We poured in the concrete and let it harden. Then, it was time to build the brick pillars along the sides of the staircase. We laid the bricks in a staggered pattern and filled the gaps with mortar. Then, we added another layer until it reached the correct height. We brushed the brick clean and smoothed the mortar before drying. Our customer loved the results. You can see photos from this job below!

What Factors Influence The Price Of Concrete?

What factors can influence the price of concrete?

There are several factors to be considered in the price of a concrete driveway. One of the factors is the materials, including the sand, cement, and water, which are a few ingredients whose prices fluctuate. If you see a rise in price of these materials, then it will influence your concrete pricing. Lumber and steel are also included in this, as these materials are needed to create your concrete. One factor that drastically will influence the price of concrete is crude oil. If crude oil is high in price, then you can expect to pay at least $6.00 per square foot for concrete.

The concrete driveway cost is also influenced on how the contractor you hire will install the concrete. Will the contractor manually mix, and then pour the concrete, or will the contractor use equipment? If the contractor uses equipment, this will alter influence the cost, along with the labor and the amount of workers that the contractor uses.

The size of the area and what you want done will influence your total concrete cost. If you are putting a new walkway in and there needs to be clearing of trees or shrubs, then of course this will be added into the cost. You cannot expect a contractor to remove these items or any other items for free. This involves workers, equipment, and time – all components are factored into your concrete cost.

There are many things that can influence the cost of concrete. Asking many questions to your potential contractor will help in letting you know an approximate cost of the concrete. A contractor will go over what you are wanting and needing to happen with the concrete and then go from there. The contractor will give you many different options that will allow you to pick and choose the best concrete for your home. The best thing about concrete is that it is maintenance free. You don’t have to spend a lot of time working on your concrete. Once the concrete is installed, you can expect it to last for the majority of the time that you own your home. When you are ready to have concrete added to your home, you can go over some of the things that can influence the cost of the concrete.

How Long Does Concrete Last?

One of the most common questions that is asked about concrete is “how long will it last?”

If the concrete has been properly installed and sealed, then the concrete can last up to 50 years. Once the concrete has been installed, it is important for your concrete to cure. The curing process allows the concrete to gain strength. The curing stage is usually a month, and then a sealer is applied to protect the concrete.

The most important thing to remember about the concrete is to stay off of it for the first 24 hours after the concrete has been installed. You will want to keep everyone and everything off the concrete for this first 24-hour period. After this initial period, you can walk across the concrete, but you should avoid driving on the concrete for at least a week. Giving your concrete this time will allow it to gain the strength that it needs to last the full 50 years. Once the week is up, you can drive on it, kids can play on it; you can enjoy the driveway. You do want to make sure no heavy vehicles, such as trash trucks, drive on your driveway for a while. It is recommended to keep heavy vehicles off the driveway for at least 30 days. This gives the concrete plenty of time to cure and gain the strength that it needs to hold up.

After the curing time has passed, a sealant will be applied. The only thing that homeowners will have to do to their concrete is a good washing with a power washer or hose several times a year. This will keep the concrete clean of any chemicals and dirt. Weather elements such as rain, snow, and sunlight contains many chemicals that can be deposited on the concrete, but a good cleaning will remove them. The sealant will also protect the concrete from absorbing any of these chemicals.

Concrete is an excellent addition to any home and can last a homeowner 25-50 years. The length of time depends on the concrete, weather conditions, and how well the concrete is maintained by the homeowner. Many homeowners never have to worry about replacing their concrete for the time that they own their home, which is the main reason homeowners choose concrete.
