Concrete work


Address25 Stacy Lane, Glenview IL

Concrete Work on the driveway.
  • Brake out the concrete driveway from front in front of the garage in the back yard including apron and little walkway at the side door of the garage towards the east wall of the house saw cutting off the concrete sidewalk by the air-condition then brake out the driveway on the north side of the house to the asphalt driveway. Saw cut approx. 16 ½’’ by 5’ of uneven asphalt driveway and brake it out for the extended part of the new concrete driveway. Brake out the sidewalk in front of the house from the driveway to the front steps of the house including bottom landing.
  • Excavate soil 2” max deeper than 5” depth for compacted gravel that will laid under the concrete overall on all driveway area to get the proper pitch away from the house. The proposed excavated 2” extra depth is proposed because of new concrete driveway being a lot lower than existing soil grade in the yard ( especially in the back yard). The new pith of the concrete driveway will be accomplished by lowering the driveway at certain points that will allow rain water slowly drain away from the building strictures due to hard elevation conditions. When desired to remove more soil than proposed there will be additional charges to dispose of the soil and grade it (not including seeding new grass). The additional estimated charge would be approx. $1,000 for that.
  • Frame up and lay out 5” of compacted gravel on the new concrete driveway and 4” for the new sidewalks.
  • Lay out steel wire mesh on the gravel for new concrete driveway.
  • Pour new concrete driveway 4000psi 6 bag mix 5” thick and pour new concrete sidewalks 4” thick pitching them away from the building walls.
  • Apply all necessary expansion and crack control joints on the driveway. Max span between the joints will be 6’ apart on the small concrete areas and 8’ on large concrete areas. There is approx. 1334sqft of concrete work area.
  • Clean the property and haul away debris.
    Owner supplies with 3 copies of plat of survey and contractor gets the driveway permits. Do not put salt on the new concrete. It will damage the surface. Use sand
