Drives, patios and car parks are a few projects that we can do for you. When looking to put in a drive, patio or car park, the first step is to check for any laws or codes that could alter your idea. Our professionals at London Elite Trades will work with you to ensure all laws and codes are met prior to starting.
Once this has been done, the next option will be what kind of material you want. Some options for a driveway or car park are asphalt, oil and stone, and concrete. Asphalt will give you that nice and smooth blacktop finish, oil and stone will be like gravel but sturdy, and concrete will give you the light gray color while also being low maintenance. For a patio, usually concrete is used. This can also be stained or inlayed with designs.
We also pour concrete walls and yards. This is done along the same lines as the drives, patios and car parks. We can install a gaming courts, concrete walls, and anything else that requires a hard surface yard or wall. Our contractors have years of experience with outstanding professionalism.
As is our policy, we will do the initial walk-through and surveys, making sure we meet any code or legal requirements. We will take care of any site clearing and recycling that is needed, or decommissioning. Once these items have been done, the work on your new yard or walls can start.
When pouring a concrete wall, we first meet with our clients to hear what their ideas are and how that will function. Once we have determined what will work and what we need with will work with out architects to design the walls. We will look at size, shape and where it will go, or placement. Next, we will work on the clearing of the area, both above and below ground if necessary.
Now we decide where the footings will go, lay out and dig them. We then build and install the forms, add rebar and pour the footings and the wall. Once the concrete has cured we create contraction joints and remove the forms. We install the waterproofing system as well as the drainage system. Now we can finish the wall as desired.
The nice thing about using concrete is that there are decorative options that can be used to dress it up. There are stamps, sponges for a stucco look, and apply stains or colors.
Another option for concrete walls are layering and embedding. Layering involves using different colors of concrete in layers to form a multicolored layering look. An idea would be to start with a lighter layer, then a darker layer, then another lighter layer and repeating as needed until done.
Embedding is when you take various objects and embed them in concrete before it cures. For a wall, you could embed glass beads, natural items like stones or press the image of leaves into the concrete to give it a natural look.
You could add ribbons of glass or even glass bottles to provide a colorful option to a plain concrete look. The ideas are endless, and our designers can help with ideas for your concrete wall decorations if that is desired.
Other ideas for concrete is designer concrete. This is when you use molds and stains that make your concrete look like something else, say stone or brick. This is done by setting the initial form for the concrete pour, then inserting the decorative form inside that. We pour as we normally would, but with the decorative lining inside.
Once cured, the lining is removed, and the wall is stained to made to look like idea of choice: rocks, brick, etc. This does not affect the structural integrity of the wall and can make an otherwise drab wall look fun and interesting. Talk with our designers and they can help you find an idea that works for you.
