Concrete Parking Stops King of Prussia

For such a familiar item, you would think there would be one, standard name used for it. But it seems there are quite a few different terms that can be used to describe it. Most commonly it’s referred to as a parking curb. However, it can also be called a wheel stop, a parking block, a wheel stopper, a parking bumper, and a variety of other names as well.

Concrete Parking Stops

Regardless of the name that’s used to describe it, the job remains the same. And the name of that job is safety. Curb stops are typically installed within each individual parking space in a parking facility. This may be a parking lot, a parking garage or a simple driveway. The intent is to prevent vehicles from pulling too far ahead within the space and damaging the property in front of it.

By providing a physical barrier, vehicles are prevented from bumping into the car in the space in front of them. Cars can no longer block walkways by pulling too far ahead and covering sidewalks. Pedestrians are protected from moving vehicles pulling into spots, and buildings & fencing are safe from drivers pulling too close & bumping into them.

Installing tire bumpers not only increases the safety within a parking facility, it also adds to the aesthetics and offers a great first impression. Because concrete parking lot blocks make such a visual impact, visitors and clients will take notice. It will be obvious that every detail is important, even down to the spaces in the parking lot. Customers will feel comforted to know that their safety was a consideration even before they became a customer.

Redi Mix Concrete King of Prussia

You’ve probably heard of Redi Mix concrete, but if you’re like most normal people, you’ve not given it much thought. However, if you’ve landed on this site, it means that you have more than a passing interest in concrete for some reason, and since we’ve laid claim to your eyeballs for a few moments, we’re going to give a little discussion about what Redi Mix concrete is:
  • It’s a type of concrete that is manufactured in a factory or batching plant, according to a set recipe, and then delivered to a work site, by truck mounted transit mixers
  • It’s a precise mixture, designed for your job, allowing specialty concrete mixtures to be developed and implemented on construction sites
  • Ready-mix concrete is sometimes preferred over on-site concrete mixing because of the precision of the mixture and reduced work site confusion. Instead of trying to have the workmen prepare and mix the concrete, the truck rolls up and they start to pour.

So now that you know a little more about it, why should it matter to you? Because it does matter. The quality and mixture of the Redi-mix concrete will determine whether your job goes well or not. We can make your concrete look and turn out well, which is why we spend so much time fussing with our Redi Mix formula before it gets to your job. We want to make sure it’s specifically mixed to meet the requirements of your project.

Concrete Patio Construction King of Prussia

Concrete patios are just plain fun and comfort. You can park your chairs and tables out there in any configuration you want, and not have to deal with the bugs and dirt that come with sitting n the grass. Ever have your chair sink into the grass, and then you have to get up and pull it out, along with a big plug of dirt? It’s not very pleasant. We can guarantee you that won’t happen on a concrete patio. We can install a nice railing to set it off from the yard, or leave it open with nice, rounded corners for a welcoming, inviting look. It is easier to maintain than a wood or imitation wood deck (less nooks and crannies for dirt to gather in), and it does not fade or splinter. We can also arrange to have it screened in for you for ultimate bug free comfort. Some customers even add a ceiling fan and a TV to make a sun room, which turns it into and extra room!

Some of the most important advantages of a concrete patio are versatility, durability and cost. These patios are so versatile because they can be poured into virtually any shape and size, optimizing your space. They are highly durable and can stand up to a range of weather conditions found in our area. In addition, their costs are competitive and often lower than patios made of stone, brick or tile.
