Another client of ours that we have been able to help is Wilmington Concrete Contractors. The owner of this company came to us needing help in getting more customers to call. During the housing boom that Wilmington was experiencing finding work was not a problem at all but then word of mouth advertising began to slow down and they were faced with laying off some of their workers. We got right to work rebuilding their website and working with their designers to make the phone start ringing again. Some of the content we wrote for them is below.
Are you in need of concrete or cement work in Port City area? As the best concrete contractor in Wilmington we provide both commercial and residential services. This includes concrete driveways, foundations, sidewalks, boat ramps and many other of your masonry needs. Concrete is one of the strongest materials and its use dates back to Roman times. The romans used this material to build an empire that lasted for thousands of years and that is what we want out of the structures that we will be making for you.
Our process starts when you contact us and our estimator will come out to the site for an evaluation of the work that needs to be done. If you have an engineering drawing or blueprint specifying what type of pour you are going to need please provide this in advance and we can potentially give an estimate without having to visit the site. This type of print will define how thick the pad needs to be and if any reinforcement such as re-bar will be needed. It also defines what type of site preparation needs to be done. This can include digging the soil out and using tamping or compacting equipment such as a roller to compact the soil beneath the cement. It can even include a layer of gravel to be a base for the pad to sit on. All of these are important factors to consider when estimating the scope of work. Some contractors will cut corners in the preparation stages to keep costs low so they can bid and the be the cheapest. While this technique may get them jobs in the short term we want to be around for years and stand behind all of our work so you know you will be getting a quality job.
After the base is prepped we will begin the pouring process. We only work with the top concrete plants in the area to ensure that a consistent mixture is being used for each job that we need. Sometimes special mixtures are needed for different desired properties of the end product and when this is the case our relationships with the plants make sure that we get exactly what is specified for your job. Some areas require more compressive strength while others will need to have some flexibility to resist cracking. The more of a load that will be placed on the surface will mean the thicker the pour will need to be. The thicker the pour the longer it takes for the surface to cure and be able to handle the load that will be applied. We have had some foundations that have taken months to cure because of how much material was used during the pouring process. One thing is sure though and that is that the foundation will not be going anywhere for decades and centuries to come.
We hope that you will consider Wilmington Concrete Contractors for any of your future concrete needs!
