The Installation of your concrete curbing is a 1-2-3 process.
Step 1.: The
installation process of curbing is most often a one-day process, usually
depending on size of the project. Upon completing an estimate of the
linear footage of the job we design the layout for the worksite with spray
paint. The Curbit East crew will remove any existing edging, and using a
bed edger an 8" wide trench is then made that is approximately 1-4 inches
deep (depending on your specifications) where the new concrete curbing will be
Step 2.: The
concrete used for each job is prepared on the premises with a mixture of sand,
portland, fiber mesh, color (your choice)
and water. As the curbing border is being extruded through the machine the
concrete mixture is forced through the mold, pushing the machine backwards
following the prepared trench. A smooth finish with a trowel and an
expansion joint is placed every 1.5' - 2' to eliminate cracking between the
joints. This joint will allow the concrete to "breathe" between the
extreme seasonal weather conditions experienced in the Midwest.
If your project requires a pattern embossed or
"stamped" into the concrete, the Curbit East crew will apply the
pattern from our offering of several
attractive choices to compliment your property.
Step 3.: Curb
Sealant will be applied upon the completion of colored curbing and contains a
UV protectant against water damage.
