Bubba's Concrete Paving


Just finished a new restaurant here that took roughly 1500 yards of concrete paving. Before this job started we bought a 6' Marion double broom that paid itself off in one day. We should've bough one of these sooner.

Looks good...

What are the tolerances on the floor?

Do you have to worry about relative humidity of the slab?

There weren't any on this one. It was a double black color. We use lots of color concrete but this was about as rich as ive ever seen it. Ruined all the guys clothes that day.

They're just sealing them and are looking for the natural look I presume because they didn't polish.
