Concrete Pads Winnipeg
Efficient concrete pads & slabs. At CAD Concrete and Excavating company we take great pride in providing high-quality concrete contractor services for residential and commercial garages and shop pads. Concrete pads can be power troweled to a smooth and dense finish or can be broom finished if non-slip grip is what you want. All garage pads use a minimum concrete strength of 32 M.P.A. with 5-8 % air entrainment. This air creates a void for water to expand into when it freezes, protecting the concrete during these cycles. Coloured concrete is another option for garages that looks sharp.
Our company knows the importance of building high-quality concrete pads. Building high-quality pads reduce the impact on the environment for the building industry. It relies on a 3/4" gravel base 6" Thick to hold the weight of the concrete pad. Pads under 500 sq. ft. use 5" thick concrete. Pads between 500 - 700 sq. ft. are made with a thickened edge 12" x 12" with two 15-20mm rebar around the entire perimeter. Pads of this size use the main pad thickness of 6". Pads over 750 sq. ft. have to be engineer-designed structures. Most residential pads use a 10 mm rebar on 18" centers for the main pad concrete.
