Overview Of Commercial Concrete Application Process


Commercial concrete repairs, maintenance and installation must be conducted with extreme attention to detail in order to create a long-lasting surface that stands up to years of wear and tear.

At Kleenco Construction we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service in the industry, hence why we are the trusted name for large-scale commercial construction projects ranging to include retail, industrial and commercial facilities.

Here’s A Brief Overview Of Commercial Concrete Application Process

The Consultation

Prior to starting work, we meet with the store manager or other team member to discuss the project at hand. At this point a schedule is created outlining overall goals, what work will be completed and final deadlines.

Preparing Our Crew

After we meet with you and outline your exact needs, it’s time to deliver the messages to our specially trained crew. Team members are assigned day-to-day tasks to help ensure the project is completed on time and surpasses all standards set at the initial meeting. Additional meetings are held at the start of every workday to ensure safety, efficiency and the highest quality work.

The Importance Of A Project Layout & Evolving Plans

Prior to the first day of work, the entire project is outlined step by step and before pictures are taken of the site for comparison purposes. Site plan and inspection photos are used as tools in creating a project layout. We work hard to handle any issues or changes that come up along the way to the best of our ability. As opposed to bothering you with every last issue, we come up with the best solution possible before presenting anything to you.

Saw Cutting & Demolition

When it comes to cutting, we only do so when completely necessary. Demolition is time consuming, which is why we use this time to do any necessary route and fill, armor joints and surface repairs. Time is money and therefore efficiency is key!

Prepping For Concrete Placement

We use dowels installed at least 6 inches in depth and never use rebar for dowels. Dowels are smooth so that there are no restrictions during expansion. Areas are compacted prior to pouring concrete. Careful attention is placed on straight and uniform edges. If any damages appear due to demolition, edges are clean cut as needed.

Concrete Place & Finishing

Depending on the weather we apply any necessary retardants or accelerants. Edges are floated prior to concrete screeding. We don’t just bull float, but instead all concrete is troweled by frenso or by hand prior to booming.  Joints are sawed to depth of 1 ¾” and surfaces are broomed. Lastly, a sealer is applied using a sprayer.

Cleanliness Is A Top Priority

Around here we don’t take cleanliness lightly. We ensure workspaces are left clean and tidy after every day of work, and at the end of the project.

The Details Matter

The details are incredibly important when it comes to creating a job well done. In order for concrete or asphalt to pass the test of time there’s no room for error. That’s why every last process is outlined with precision regarding weather, special procedures, precautions and so forth.

For instance, armor joint surface repair comes with a detailed set of instructions our team knows by heart. This will give you a good idea as to the level of care and detail we put into every project.

A typical armor joint surface repair process goes as follows…

This project starts off with team members referencing the site plan and photos. Just like most other processes, this task is only completed in dry weather and on thoroughly dried surfaces.

Specified areas are saw cut to ½ inch, uniformity of depth is very important.

Once areas are cut, they must be cleaned so that all dust and debris are removed. The cleaning process includes using a push broom, vacuum and blower to ensure nothing is left behind.

A heavy-duty tape is applied around the outlines of the project area in order to complete uniform, straight edges.

The bonding agent is applied using a special brush to ensure it is spread thin and not puddled in any areas.

The product is mixed to precise specifications before being installed and made smooth and flush with the perimeter.

Broom finishing comes next, and the actual direction of the broom is important in order to match surrounding concrete.

All joints are saw cut through material penetrating into the substrate.

Sawn joints are then sealed using a urethane joint sealant.

All work areas must be sufficiently cleaned.
