What the heck do we do?

OUR SERVICES

 

Decorative and Stamped Concrete

Not only is concrete one of the most durable building materials out there, it can also be decorative. Stamping concrete so that it has a texture can help to add a bit of interest and wow factor. Typically, stamped concrete is colored with the concrete mix colored, as well as a stamp antique release color- to give it depth and highlight the texture. All stamped concrete needs to sealed with a quality sealer to protect the finished surface and color from human and mother nature.

Driveways

Our concrete driveways are built to last. Not only are driveways one of the first things you and guests see when you come home, they are also one of the most used areas. To ensure your driveway will look good for many years to come, there are important steps we follow. The quality of workmanship and materials are largely related to the way your driveway looks and performs. Proper subgrade, concrete mix design, correctly placed joints, reinforcement, thickness, finishing, and curing are all key components of a quality concrete job. 

Foundations and Walls

Concrete foundations and walls are are also a big part of what we do. While foundations and retaining walls are typically more about structural strength than they are about aesthetics, sometimes you want/need both. We pride ourselves on building foundations that are structurally sound and square/level. We can also pour decorative walls for seating or landscaping planters. No matter what application it is for, concrete is your building material of choice for most foundations and seating walls.

Patios and Walkways

Concrete patios and walkways can add value and a great look to any outdoor living space. Concrete patios can be formed to almost any shape and size- depending on how you use the space. The durability and look of concrete allows it to be a great centerpiece to a great yard. Patios can be traditional finishes, decorative finishes, or a combo - the possibilities are endless. We put the same care into your concrete patio that we do for all our concrete work- great materials and excellent workmanship, so that you will be able to enjoy for years to come

Frequently asked questions

What time of year can I get my project done?


We work year-round. we understand we may get wet, some of us enjoy it! We take as many precautions as we can with each project. We typically do not pour in the rain or freezing temperatures, although we have learned to work with and around the weather to get things done. Know this- the quality of your project is more important to us than schedule or risking a bad outcome.




Do we need rebar or other reinforcement?


Yes. We use rebar, or some kind of reinforcement on almost every job. We know, as concrete professinals, that concrete cracks. Once it does crack, we need to keep it from separating. We have all seen cracks in concrete that have become trip hzards- rebar helps prevent that. The only jobs that we do not use reinforcement are typically municipal sidewalks and driveway approaches- as they will not allow. (easier to tear out?)




How thick do you pour concrete?


We typically pour driveways, patios, walkways at 4'' thick. This has worked well for standard residential traffic. On some commercial work and City work thicker concrete is required for heavy vehicle traffic. If it is a wall or foundation we are pouring, the thickness is typically determined by the load that is going to be applied. We can help you determine what thickness would be requred.




Do we need an aggregate base under our concrete?


Typically you do. Here in the Willamette Valley we have some very expansive clay soils. We install a 4'' crushed rock base under all driveways and 2'' crushed rock under patios and walkways. Proper compaction of the rock base gives you a solid foundation for your slab. The rock base provides you with a buffer between the expansive (moving) clay soil and the concrete slab. The rock base also provides a drainage layer, as clays are slow to drain. When installing concrete footings below the frost line, we do not always need a rock base in those cases.




Do we need to cure the concrete?


Typically you do. We spray cure/seal on most all flatwork after the final finishing steps. The cure/ seal forms a membrane (usualy clear) that protects the concrete drying too quickly from the sun, wind, etc. Other ways to cure concrete could be water cure (ponding, sprinkler, etc.) or plastic sheeting. There are drawbacks /benefits and different applications for all types of curing. Your concrete professional should be able to explain options for your specific project.




Is sealing the concrete necessary?


With some finishes, Yes. Concrete sealer is designed to be applied after 28 days of concrete curing. Some finishes- stamped, stained, etc, need a sealer to act as the wear surface from vehicles, foot traffic, rain, etc. If the sealer layer is not kept up/ maintained, the wear surface becomes the top layer of concrete - the cement and color. this will eventually leave you with a worn surface and little to no color left. Some finishes do not require a sealer as a wear surface as much as others, but sealers also help bring out the aggregate color, give a satin sheen, protect the concrete from freeze thaw cycles, and help prevent staining.




Do we need "joints" or "cut lines" in our concrete?


Yes. Concrete cracks. Joints- whether hand cut or saw cut are meant to control the cracking. These joints are approximately a 1/4 depth of the concrete thickness. These joints give the concrete a weakened plane in which to crack. As concrete professionals, we apply our knowledge of concrete cracking rules. This allows us to layout each projects joints to minimize the chance of a stray crack. If a stray crack does happen (which is possible even with great planning and workmanship) cracks can not open up because of the rebar that is installed as well.




Why is Campbell Concrete's price higher (or lower) than other concrete companies I have bids from?


Usually it is rare to really have an "apples to apples" comparison. We all see things differently, and have unique ways to tackle each project. At Campbell Concrete, we try to give you the best value for the materials and installation workmanship. We stand behind our work, and have great pride to live and serve in the local communities. We have extensive knowledge in our chiosen field, and will work with you to get your project done in a timely matter and with professionalism.
