Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco Concrete Work
We like to say that where others would use wire mesh for reinforcing, we will use rebar. There is a big difference between the two. Rebar is the only true reinforcement for concrete. It will help the slab bend while it is under tension and keep it from cracking. If there are soft spots under the slab then the rebar can help bridge these soft spots and increase the strength and longevity of the slab. It is very important when talking to your prospective concrete contractor to ask him if he uses rebar. If he says no, then you have a contractor that likes to take chances.
In some cases contractors cheat and ignore the foundation. Instead of making sure the dirt beneath the pad is properly graded they throw gravel and baserock into the base. Not only does that add to the expense it still does not provide the stable base that a well graded and compacted soil does. That is why it is important to select the very best in concrete creation.

Concrete can have a variety of finishes, from steel trowel to stamped textured. Van Midde and Concrete are experts in finishes of concrete and can take a client’s dreams and make them a reality. Concrete can be exposed to allow for the sand or gravel in the concrete to show, also called antiquing the surface to make it look like something mother nature has done to an older slab. Years of winters will expose the surface slightly each year and more and more of the cream is removed to expose the aggregate. We can also add colored rock to the slab after it has been poured and float the stones into the surface. This finish is known as seeded exposed.
Here at Van Midde and Son Concrete, we offer a variety of concrete-related services; not the least of which is our professional concrete cleaning and concrete sealing service. We give our cleaning and sealing treatments the same amount of care as every other aspect of our job, but it doesn’t stop there.
