The properties of concrete’s low resistance make it a premium surface to boost fuel efficiency and minimize tire wear. We use concrete paving machines and mixers that are capable of carrying out large paving projects in the Columbia, Charleston, and Rock Hill areas. With different forms of finishing, the top layer of concrete can be grooved to allow for water to flow off of the surface.

Flatworked Pavement vs Concrete without Flatwork

Our professional contractors use concrete for flatwork features that either need more support from a substrate, like dumpster pads or need to be perfectly straight and smooth, like with ADA-accessible ramps. It’s a versatile construction material and allows us to apply different finishes and textures. Without flatwork, pavements can form unsafe and uneven surfaces for foot and vehicle traffic. This can result in costly repairs in the future as well as not satisfying the guidelines expected to be followed.


We can handle any sized sidewalk project for commercial shopping centers, business parks, and streets. Using the Americans with Disabilities Act’s design and compliance rules, we’ll ensure that your sidewalks are both safe and long-lasting.

Dumpster Pads

With new paving projects, we will work with you and the design standards to place a dumpster pad in the designated area. Dumpster pads are poured with a strong rebar and aggregate substrate so the surface will hold up to heavy weight and pressure.

ADA Accessible Ramps

We are capable of pouring Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant ramps. All of our exterior building work is compliant with regulations and guidelines for accessibility. We also offer ramp finishing to improve the grip and safety of your ramps.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is concrete flatwork in Columbia & Charleston?

Concrete flatwork refers to the process of making poured concrete flat—to be used for sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, patios, and other spaces that require ‘flat’ surfaces. In South Carolina, concrete flatwork typically involves forming a frame and a sub-base of aggregate rock—which strengthens the concrete and reduces the chances of cracks from forming. Once poured, the concrete will be compacted and flattened—using a combination of tools (like floats, trowels, and edgers) and special paving techniques to shape and finish the concrete.

How can I clean concrete in Columbia and Charleston?

Concrete can be cleaned first by using a blower to remove any loose debris that may be on top of it, followed by using a pressure washer to remove any residual gunk. You may also want to spot treat stains by scrubbing the area with a mix of liquid laundry detergent and water, followed by rinsing it with water and allowing it to air dry.

Should I hire a concrete company in Columbia to pour my concrete driveway?

While you can certainly attempt to pave a concrete driveway yourself, it’s not recommended.

You could also unintentionally make your driveway unsafe to drive or walk on.
