Flatwork, Driveways & Sidewalks

Flatwork refers to any concrete that is poured along a horizontal plane, or flat surface = foundations, driveways and sidewalks, for instance. And, while concrete is a widely used material for construction and design, it takes a professional to understand both its advantages, and its limitations. Concrete is widely used for all types of flatwork, and in construction in general. And, that’s not just in the Augusta area – more than 10 billion tons is poured annually worldwide! Concrete certainly has many uses, however, the most common is flatwork.
