Everyone knows that concrete is durable and low-maintenance, but fewer homeowners are aware of just how versatile concrete can be. For example, colored concrete makes concrete well suited to a wide variety of decorative renovation projects. Here are some ways you can incorporate colored concrete when remodeling your home.
Decorative Floors Concrete floors can come in a wide variety of colors and shades. This can make them the perfect choice for decorative flooring. Whether you are looking for a new floor for your basement or looking to update your living room’s style, concrete floors are the perfect choice. Furthermore, because of the sheer variety of colors available, you don’t have to worry about your new floors clashing with your room’s interior decoration.
Pool-Side Decks Pool-side decks can be hard to maintain. They are constantly exposed to the elements and can also be high-traffic. While conventional flooring materials require frequent maintenance and repair. Colored concrete, on the other hand, can add elegance and style to your pool-side deck without costing you in the long run. Concrete is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance.
Countertops Kitchen countertops are notoriously hard to maintain. They are exposed to spills, impact damage, and cuts and scrapes. Colored concrete can give your kitchen the splash of color it needs without the maintenance issues.
The options listed above are just a small sample of the many instances in which you could incorporate colored concrete. With colored concrete incorporated into your home, you will be sure to enjoy added elegance and style. In addition, concrete’s durability means that you will save money on maintenance and repair in the long run. If you want to learn more about how you can use colored concrete in your next remodeling project, call A-1 Ready Mix Concrete at (888) 429-0767.

Used in the construction of family home and business foundations, driveways, pools, pools, walls, and sidewalk pavement, concrete is more than a household term. It is a household building block. Almost anyone can identify concrete when he or she sees it, but far fewer people can tell you precisely what concrete is.
Concrete has been used as a building material for thousands of years. During that period, the make-up of its contents has changed little. Today, concrete consists of cement, sand, water, and construction aggregate.
Using the right ratio of these ingredients, concrete can be mixed anywhere. Anyone who has hand mixed concrete and purchased ready mixed concrete, however, will tell you that there really is no reason to mix your own concrete when you have the opportunity to purchase a pre-mixed concrete batch. Carrying traditional Portland limestone and other colors of drop-ready concrete, A-1 Ready Mix Concrete can help you tackle whatever concrete-based project you may be working on. To learn more about our product and same-day service, call (888) 429-0767.

Is your aging concrete driveway cracked, stained beyond belief, or just plain uninviting?

To ensure that your concrete driveway restyling project runs as smoothly as you hope the driveway looks when it’s done, follow these steps:
Create a Budget Embarking on any sort of construction project, only to find out that you do not have enough money to complete it on schedule is an annoyance that no homeowner or contractor wants to deal with. To safeguard yourself or your company against this nuisance, create a detailed budget. Consider all materials and labor that your project requires. Make sure you leave a bit of buffer room for unexpected costs that may arise.
Determine How Much Concrete You’ll Need Having too little concrete for your renovated driveway can set you back several steps in the driveway renovation process. Having too much concrete is a waste. There are several tools available online that can help you figure out just how much concrete you need for your project.
Obtain Necessary Equipment Consider all aspects of your driveway construction or renovation. What tools and equipment do you need to properly and efficiently carry out each task? Rent or purchase these supplies before you get started.

Although durable and practical, concrete cannot retain a like-new appearance forever. From modest residential driveways to large commercial parking structures, there eventually comes a time when an old concrete structure should be destroyed to make way for the new. Just because a slab of concrete has fulfilled its purpose on your property, however, does not mean that it cannot be used by somebody else. Opportunities for dealing with concrete during your upcoming renovation project include:
Demolishing It Concrete demolition is best done by professionals, as it requires the use of specialized equipment and safety precautions associated with the process and the machinery used. If you are looking to knock down an entire concrete structure or clear out a driveway or garage floor, demolition is the way to go.
Crushing It After the concrete structure on your property is demolished, a professional can crush it into pieces of varying size. Once crushed, your old concrete structure or surface will look like piles of gravel. Crushed concrete is easier and safer to collect and transport than larger concrete fragments.
Recycling It The piles of crushed concrete described above can be recycled and reused for various construction purposes. You may even find a use for this crushed concrete in your very own remodeling project! If you would rather have the crushed concrete removed from your property, a ready mix concrete contractor can do this for you. If the fragments that remain are reusable, they will be incorporated into the construction of building or roads elsewhere.
At A-1 Ready Mix Concrete in Hayward, we believe in sustainable practices designed to protect and conserve the environment. For this reason, we offer concrete crushing and processing services that enables the crushed concrete product our services yield to be used again for other construction purposes. If you would like to hire a professional concrete demolition and concrete crushing contractor who will ensure that your old concrete is put to good use once it leaves your San Francisco worksite, call (888) 429-0767.
