We are a leader in Edmonton and Area for the breakout, removal and replacement of concrete and newly poured concrete at affordable price points for businesses and consumers. Our team is lead by years of experience and a journeyman concrete finisher to ensure the product is of quality is delivered in a timely manner.
McCormick General Construction designs and builds all different types of sidewalks and stairs. All stairs come with the various finishes including broom , exposed aggregate, and stamped finishes in the Edmonton Area. We take care of the break up and removal of old concrete paths, paving stone, concrete blocks, soil, or sod. Once it is excavated, we put in road crush which is tampered down with a plate tamper. Crib forms are then used with right angles or curves in order to form the sidewalk with rebar put into place.
Broom finished sidewalks are the standard choice in Edmonton and Area. Because of the extremely harsh weather in the winter time broom finished sidewalks are cost effective and used throughout most commercial and residential applications.
Exposed aggregate sidewalks have been the choice for trend setting neighbourhoods in the Edmonton Area. The typical colours for exposed aggregate are brown and grey but McCormick can mix colour into the concrete to create gorgeous one-of-a-kind sidewalks.
Stamped Concrete sidewalks are becoming more and more common in the Edmonton Area. Although it can be more difficult to shovel this type of finish, it can architecturally match the home, business, or landscape leaving home owners or buyers in awe.
Prior to pouring, we always ensure the ground is prepped and the rebar is closely spaced and properly positioned. In Edmonton, sidewalks need a solid foundation to be poured on to ensure if there is expansion or contraction of the ground below there is a less likely chance of cracking. We use tampers to compact the ground below to ensure a solid compact foundation. When pouring a sidewalk, we always use concrete chairs to ensure that the rebar stays suspended to the middle of the slab thickness. Without this, the rebar will sink when the pour is being completed, thus causing the slab to become weaker and be susceptible to larger cracks. Once that is done, the rebar and ground are dampened to ensure a quality finished product. This helps build a long lasting product for all of our clients.
Sealing your sidewalk or any exposed concrete is extremely important as your sidewalk is used often, it deteriorates. Your sidewalk is exposed to extreme weather, grime, water, stains, etc. which can all be eliminated by proper coating. If you need help washing, sealing, or maintaining your concrete, McCormick can help you out.
