What is the typical process for concrete installation?
The process for concrete installation may vary depending on the project, but generally, it involves site preparation, formwork construction, reinforcement placement, concrete pouring, leveling, and finishing. Curing and sealing are also important steps to ensure the longevity and durability of the concrete.

How should I maintain my concrete surfaces?
To maintain concrete surfaces, regularly clean them using mild detergent and water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can damage the concrete. Consider sealing the concrete every few years to protect it from staining and enhance its longevity. Promptly repair any cracks to prevent them from worsening.
Can concrete crack, and how can I prevent it?
Concrete can develop cracks over time due to various factors such as temperature changes, moisture, and heavy loads. While it is difficult to prevent all cracks, proper installation, reinforcement, and joint placement can minimize their occurrence. Additionally, avoiding sudden temperature changes and using control joints can help control crack formation.
