How are Concrete Patios a Better Choice for the Winter Months?
By choosing a concrete patio you won't have to worry about extreme damage from the winter months. Compared to wood decks, concrete doesn't expand when it freezes, potentially causing cracking, buckling, and splintering. Using concrete for your patio ensures that your outdoor space will look beautiful season after season. Contact Scott's today for a concrete patio in Bloomington, IL.
Why should I use a Professional?
Pouring concrete requires careful planning, knowledge, and skill, in addition to the right materials, tools, and equipment. Concrete will last for years, but only if it's installed properly.
- When installing a concrete patio, proper preparation is key. It is necessary to establish a solid base. At Scott's, we ensure that the soil is tightly packed and the surface is carefully leveled. If your concrete is sitting on top of loose soil, it will crack and degrade as the soil settles.
- Pouring concrete is a time-sensitive process. The materials and processes must be coordinated strategically, as the inaccurate amount of water or incorrect materials can lead to a broken (and dangerous) outcome. A concrete patio can be hazardous for your family if not completed correctly. If done poorly, concrete patios can be slippery and uneven.
- As one of Bloomington's top concrete contractors, we are experts in concrete patio installation. Scott's professional, dedicated team will assure that the process is smooth from start to finish.
