They will ask you some questions that will create what we call a wish list. A wish list is all of the features, design elements, materials, options, and most importantly the price point you are willing to put into having your walkway replaced. The most popular choice for designing a new walkway to your home is to use a free-flowing design. Our walkway designers can come up with a wide variety of different designs that are absolutely much more appealing than what you’re builder originally installed. In designing your new walkway, we offer a wide range of materials to either cap your existing walkway or cover your freshly poured concrete walkway design. We use materials that include clay brick pavers, square cut flagstone, irregular flagstone, travertine pavers, interlocking concrete pavers, and decorative concrete. We can even combine materials to give your Northern Virginia walkway project a one of a kind look

 Walkway Concrete Base Preparation

Before concrete can be poured the base area of your walkway project it must be properly prepared. If you have an existing cracked walkway that needed to be replaced the 1st step is to remove the concrete. Concrete removal is typically done with a Bobcat and/or with jackhammers. The broken concrete is then loaded into a dump truck and removed from the job site. If there is no existing concrete then the dirt in the area to be poured needs to be graded and/or excavated to prepare for the ultimate concrete pour. The quintessential element in every concrete job is to get the grade is set so that there is no standing water once the project is complete. To achieve the proper grade a transit, laser, and string lines will be set to determine exactly how the slab will be graded. Once these guidelines are placed the area will be marked with spray paint to replicate the plan you negotiated with your estimator. After the area has been correctly marked, we will form the plan with various sizes of lumber. After the lumber has been installed you will be allowed to approve the walkway plans and designs for the forming of your new walkway.  After the gravel base has been tamped grade stakes will be placed and checked to make sure that a 4-inch area is readied for the concrete pour. To double check everything we typically like to have our clients check the forming process because this represents the size and grade of the finished product. Having the client check the forms will ensure that there are no misunderstandings because it’s much easier to move forms then the moving concrete. One must consider what is the best way to reinforce your concrete slab. The options include welded steel wire mesh, rebar, or residential micro fiberglass, ask your estimator for the proper reinforcement options for your new concrete slab.
