What is Flatwork?
Concrete flatwork refers to any poured concrete surface that is laid horizontally. Typically, flatwork projects include walkways, sidewalks, foundational work, driveways, patios, and such. Though concrete is certainly one of the most expensive paving materials when compared to asphalt, its long-lasting nature and its look make it a highly desirable choice for a lot of flatwork in Denver. One of the most popular flatwork projects is ramp construction. Residential buildings may need disability access while it’s of utmost important that commercial spaces are consistently ADA-compliant. The Americans With Disabilities Act regulates mandates wheelchair and walking disability accessibility for parking lots and businesses and if those areas aren’t properly maintained, it can lead to hefty penalties and fines. If you think your building may need some additional work done, contact Denver’s flatwork experts at ABC Asphalt to set up a consultation for your project.
The Benefits of Concrete
Concrete flatwork might not have the aesthetic appeal of paved materials or bricks but it comes with its own set of benefits. Pavers and bricks are more susceptible to settling and movement, especially concerning projects such as sidewalks and patios, which are often close in proximity to trees and other plant life with strong roots. Concrete is more resilient to roots and can withstand rain damage more capably than most paving material. If the aesthetic appeal of other materials is holding you back from considering concrete as a viable flatwork option for your Denver residence, contact your local paving experts to inquire about silicone molds that can create patterns on concrete finishes. Many companies also offer a wide variety of sealers that can alter the color of concrete.
