Types Of Projects Using Residential Concrete
The biggest differentiator for any concrete used for residential work is the final strength. But given its flexibility in terms of customization, you’ll find concrete in any number of home projects.
Since a concrete foundation supports an entire home, you’ll find more substantial frames to hold eight inches to ten inches of depth. The final strength generally ranges from 3,500 PSI to 4,000 PSI.
The typical thickness is four inches on top of an aggregate base, such as gravel, limestone, or sand. Generally, residents can expect the final strength of 4,000 PSI to 4,500 PSI to be achieved one month after placement.
These popular gathering spaces offer durability, ease of maintenance, and versatility that often exceeds traditional wood-based decks and patios. But because they support furniture and equipment — grills can weigh more than 120 pounds — a 4,000 PSI is generally the minimum concrete strength.
Sidewalks & Walkways
Similar to the strength requirements of patios, sidewalks and walkways need a range of 4,000 PSI to 4,500 PSI. Although foot and small-wheeled traffic doesn’t seem to induce the amount of stress on the surfaces because the traffic is moving, it does through continual and repeated use.
Garage & Interior Floors
Concrete has been a popular flooring material for years, but it comes with several requirements to meet subsequent demands. It’s recommended both garage and interior floors have a four-inch pour depth along with a 4,500 PSI. The increased strength aims to support appliances, vehicles, and other everyday items.
Because of their visual flexibility, concrete countertops have become popular options for new homes and remodeling projects. Homeowners can choose between a wide variety of stains and stamps to create a custom countertop.
