Austin Concrete Flatwork Contractor
Concrete flatwork is a specialized type of concrete used for driveways, walkways, pool areas and patios.

U.S. Pave Austin does some of the highest-quality concrete flatwork in the area.
What is Concrete Flatwork?
Concrete flatwork is any concrete work that is done on a horizontal service. This concrete work includes anything from patios and poolside to driveways and sidewalks. Many people prefer concrete flatwork because it is less expensive than asphalt and can last for many years.
While you may think concrete is all the same, when you hire professionals like U.S. Pave Austin, you are getting a specific compound specially blended for your project. Concrete contains cement, water and an aggregate, such as sand or rock. Our specialty is knowing which aggregate is best for your conditions and creating the proper mixture for a strong and sturdy surface. Rapid concrete delivery is a must for proper curing, and special skills and tools are used to provide various finishes.
Concrete Doesn’t Have to Be Boring
Gone are the days when concrete flatwork meant you had to live with a big white or graying surface. Today’s flatwork includes many design elements, including color, texture and can even be molded or made to look just like hardwood or another more elaborate surface. You can even create a brush-colored surface to blend in with your natural landscape.
Concrete Flatwork Needs Maintenance
Like all concrete, there are maintenance needs with flatwork that are important. The most pertinent is safely cleaning your flatwork. Concrete can become dirty or stained and safely be cleaned with a low-pressure pressure wash, followed by sealant for future protection. When your concrete is chipped or broken, you should call a professional from U.S Pave for repairs. You shouldn’t see flaking with your flatwork if it was properly mixed and installed. If flakes are appearing, contact us right away to prevent an ongoing, worsening problem.
