New Orleans Concrete Driveway Installation

Concrete Driveway Preparation

In New Orleans where the weather can be felt in its extremes, concrete driveways can experience surface imperfections and cracks.

Weather conditions are one of the most crucial factors that we consider when pouring concrete for New Orleans driveways.

These are the steps we take for the driveway preparation before we pour concrete:

  • Base Installation                  We carefully assess the soil of your property before we pour any concrete. If it is made of certain types of sand or gravel, we will pour a foundational pad as a base before pouring the actual driveway.
  • Grading the Driveway
    We make sure to prolong the life of your driveway by properly grading at 1-1.5” per 10’ of length and incorporating drains and pipes that will allow good drainage of water.
  • Framing the Driveway
    We use wooden frames for each part of your driveway, including the laying out of planned joints for expansion and contraction.
  • Reinforcing the concrete
    We layout a grid of steel rebar to reinforce the concrete to prevent cracking and decomposition.
  • This is especially important for commercial and industrial applications where heavy machinery and large trucks can drive onto the concrete pad.

Concrete Placement and Finishing

Our New Orleans team of driveway concrete contractors strictly adhere to proper concrete placement and finishing guidelines to prevent deficiencies.

We ensure that we have enough people to man the job, depending on the size of your driveway, the weather, and particular design aspects.

Here’s what we typically do:

  • Dampening of subgrade without leaving free-standing water
  • Releasing the proper amount of form before placing concrete
  • Preparing the adequate amount of slump for placement
  • Use of wheelbarrows for small driveways and direct pouring from a mixer for larger driveways.
  • Moving poured concrete with shovels to rough grade and avoid segregation
  • Finish grading and consolidating the concrete along the edges
  • Smoothening of the surface with an edging tool
  • Applying a final non-slip finish

Concrete Curing and Driveway Sealing

  • In our years of experience, we make sure that poured and finished concrete on driveways are sufficiently cured to prevent deficiencies like discoloration, cracking, scaling, shrinkage, cracking, and others.
  • Our crew has expertise in maintaining the required moisture condition and concrete temperature for proper curing.
  • We immediately start the curing process after the final finish by applying curing membranes or compounds following the manufacturer’s application instructions.
  • We also use wet burlap, soaking hoses, waterproof paper, or polyethylene to keep the surface constantly wet for seven days.
  • If you get your driveway in New Orleans installed or upgraded during cold weather, we use polyethylene sheets and insulated blankets in the curing process.
  • On a hot, dry, windy day in New Orleans, our concrete driveway contractors know how to deal with curing to prevent water from evaporating.
  • We make sure to hydrate your paved driveway, keeping it warm and wet, until it reaches its full strength.

When the conditions are normal, we seal concrete driveways with a penetrating sealer according to the recommendations of the manufacturer. For example:

  • After 30 days if a curing membrane is used
  • After a period of air drying if water has cured

Concrete Driveway Construction Repairs and Resurfacing

When your concrete driveway in New Orleans is properly placed, it will require minimal repairs. But in the case of surface deficiencies, we can regrind the top layer and bond a new one.

If there are major cracks on your concrete driveway because of subgrade movement or failure of the slab, we can either apply crack sealers to allow continued performance or remove the cracked section, restabilize the subgrade, and replace the damaged portion.
