What Does a Concreter Do?
A professional concreter has the experience and knowledge to ensure that your concrete construction or resurfacing project is completed on time, to your budget expectations, and to a high standard of workmanship. Concreters work across a wide range of both residential and commercial projects, and they can help you with your concrete driveway installation, concrete flooring, concrete patio, or even concrete foundations. Search for a local cairns concreters in your area on hipages and narrow your search by service features, location, reviews and ratings, and pricing to find the right fit for you.
Is there a shortage of tradies?
Before pouring new concrete, your concreter will prepare the ground. This includes measuring the area, and marking out the concrete slab with form guides. They may also build in an angle into the concrete slab, and install things like damp-proofing or insulation if required. If they’re installing a concrete slab for a shed or carport, your concreter will advise you on the best type of concrete for that particular use, taking into account durability, termite-proofing, and thermal properties.
When they’re ready to begin, your concreter will order a concrete delivery and mix it, using a machine if necessary. Once it’s poured, they’ll level the concrete to create an even surface for your driveway or other project, and they’ll cut in joints to control cracking and to make the finished product stronger. They may also use a chemical accelerator to speed up the setting time of the concrete if you need it to be ready for immediate use.
