    Concrete During Winter: What You Need to Know Before Starting Your Project

    Concrete is a mixture made up of water, rock, sand and gravel mixed with Portland cement. The mixture is in the form of slurry and begins to harden once poured. Curing of concrete is essential for it to develop the desired strength and durability. Without sufficient moisture, the hydration process of concrete is not adequate, affecting the quality of the product. The rate of hydration is faster at higher temperatures.

    Interlocking Stones for Your Summer Patio

    Now that summer has arrived, it’s time to think about your renovation projects. Whether you own a business or a family home, you should consider interlocking stones to bring a unique look to your property. Whereas regular paving stones tend to be rectangular and repetitive, interlocking stones fit together in more complex ways, producing more interesting and intricate patterns. Paved areas don’t have to be simple, utilitarian features in your yard. When they’re done right, they can contribute to the aesthetic appeal of outdoor spaces.
