To ensure that your concrete will look good for many years to come, there are important steps we follow during installation. How well your concrete looks and performs long-term is largely related to the quality of workmanship and materials that go into it.

Concrete Mix

All too often contractors will save money and increase their profits by using a less expensive concrete mix. Down Right Concrete LLC is NOT one of those companies – we only use the most durable and well renowned products available in the area, with no exceptions. Our suppliers are few, well reputed, and like us, they stand by their product 100%.

The standard in most commonly used mixes is 2500-3000psi --Unlike some of the other companies, we use a minimum of 6 sack- 4000psi mix for our exposed aggregate jobs and a 4500psi for everything else.

Another thing to watch out for is companies that add massive amounts of water to the mix to increase the workability of concrete in order to make the pouring process easier on their bodies -- Adding 1 gallon of water per yard can decrease the psi by up to 200psi. This is a lazy practice and is all too common in this industry -- When we pour concrete, we add the minimal amount of water. Less water to cement ratio results in a more durable and long lasting final product.

Reinforcement

Rebar/Wire Mesh – We pour concrete at 4”slab thickness and reinforce with a minimum of 3/8 rebar at 18" to 24” centers for all of our jobs. This is our standard practice. Thickness and rebar size can always be increased for slabs with higher weight-load expectations such as RV pads.
