Your Commercial Concrete Services Project: What to Expect
We begin each project by meeting with you to discuss your needs, layout and the most recent building codes for ADA compliance (wheelchair ramps, extended width walkways, etc.). Together, we map the layout for your project and discuss any extra features you want such as adding stamp patterns or staining to add color to the concrete. We’ll let you know about all the possible options and help you stay on schedule and on budget.
Once the layout is fully planned, the concrete installation process proceeds as follows:
- We excavate the area and install the sub base. If the new concrete is replacing old concrete, we completely remove the old concrete and send it to a recycling center. The sub base is the foundational layer; we ensure this is properly drained, compacted and free of debris, roots, old pipes, etc.
- We place the forms that will give shape to the sidewalk or other structure. During this phase we also ensure proper slope so that water will easily drain off of the concrete in the right direction.
- We set reinforcing into place, if needed.
- We pour the concrete into the forms, then level and float it in preparation for the final finish.
- We cut control joints into the sidewalk to prevent cracking.
- We finish the concrete with floats and other finishing tools. Then we apply a broom finish to give texture to the sidewalk and prevent it from getting slippery in the rain and apply curing compound as necessary.
Concrete Curb and Gutter Repairs
Espina Paving - as the best Concrete Contractor in Northern Virginia - has a great deal of experience repairing and installing concrete curbs and gutters. Curbs and gutters often bear the brunt of trucks, snow plows, tree roots, poor parking etiquette, etc., so they can suffer a lot of damage over the years. Concrete curbs and gutters are also essential to the sidewalk structure and any asphalt pavement they help to drain. Curbs and gutters ensure that rainwater flows away in the right direction off of the pavement.
- If we are installing new curbs and gutters, we work extensively on the layout with you to ensure good drainage slope. Any old or damaged curbs or gutters are removed and sent for recycling.
- We grade and compact the sub base as needed.
- We install the forms that shape the curb and gutter area to create the proper grade.
- We pour the concrete. As the concrete dries, we remove the front of the form face so we can float and finish the exterior.
- After finishing the curb, we cure and seal it and do any necessary backfill.
Concrete Sidewalk - Design and Installation
Espina Paving provides design and installation of concrete sidewalks. When it comes to constructing a sidewalk, proper subgrade compaction and preparation are of utmost importance. At Espina Paving, we understand the significance of these crucial steps in ensuring the longevity and structural integrity of your sidewalks. Here our concrete sidewalk paving process:
- Permit acquisition: We will handle the necessary permits and approvals required for constructing a sidewalk, ensuring compliance with local regulations.
- Layout planning: Our experts will work with you to determine the ideal location and dimensions of the sidewalk, considering factors such as pedestrian traffic and specific requirements. We will mark the path using stakes and string.
- Mindful Tree Placement: Tree roots can pose a significant threat to sidewalks, causing slab uplift and subsequent damage. To prevent such issues, we emphasize careful tree placement. As a general rule, maintaining a distance of two sidewalk widths between nearby trees and sidewalk edges is recommended. If you desire to have a tree in closer proximity to the sidewalk, opting for a smaller species with less aggressive root growth is advisable. Deep-rooted trees like oak or maple generally cause less uplift than shallow-rooted trees such as spruce or poplar.
- Material and tool procurement: Espina Paving will gather all the required materials and tools for the project, including concrete mix, rebar or wire mesh reinforcement, wooden forms, stakes, string, a wheelbarrow, shovels, levels, trowels, and floats.
- Excavation: Our skilled team will excavate the designated area, digging a trench to the appropriate depth of 4 to 6 inches (10-15 cm), accounting for concrete thickness and a base layer of gravel or sand.
- Base preparation: We will ensure a stable base by compacting the soil using professional equipment, such as plate compactors or manual tampering. A layer of gravel or sand will be added and properly compacted to provide a solid foundation.
- Form installation: Espina Paving will set up sturdy wooden forms along the edges of the sidewalk, ensuring straight and level edges. We will secure the forms in place using stakes and make necessary adjustments to maintain accuracy.
- Reinforcement placement: If required or desired, our team will install rebar or wire mesh reinforcement within the forms, providing added strength to the concrete, especially for high-traffic areas or larger sidewalks.
- Uniform Compaction for Reduced Differential Settlement: Achieving uniform compaction is just as vital as the degree of compaction itself. By ensuring uniform compaction, we minimize the chances of differential settlement and subsequent crack development. Our experienced team employs proven methods to ensure the subgrade is uniformly compacted, mitigating potential issues in the future.
- Granular Subbase for Enhanced Support: While concrete can be placed directly on the subgrade, we highly recommend incorporating a granular subbase layer between the compacted subgrade and the concrete slab. This additional layer provides uniform support and bridges over minor subgrade defects. This is especially beneficial in areas where the subgrade soil is prone to shrinkage caused by moisture depletion.
- Protecting Concrete in Cold Temperatures: When pouring concrete sidewalks in cold temperatures, it's crucial to protect the newly placed concrete from freezing. We adhere to industry best practices, ensuring that the concrete is shielded from freezing for a minimum of five days after placement. This precautionary measure helps prevent damage and ensures optimal strength development.
- Moisture Retention in Warm Temperatures: In warmer temperatures, it's essential to retain adequate moisture in the concrete during the crucial strength development phase. Our experts utilize wet curing techniques or apply a liquid membrane-forming curing compound to maintain the required moisture levels. By initiating the curing process immediately after finishing, we prevent premature drying of the concrete surface, which can occur within 20 to 30 minutes in sunny, windy, and warm conditions.
- Control Joints for Crack Minimization: To minimize the occurrence of cracks, strategically placed control joints are essential. We incorporate control joints into the sidewalk at approximately 4-foot intervals across the length of the slab, reaching a depth of about one-quarter the slab thickness. Our skilled craftsmen, including decorative concrete contractors, can even incorporate these joints into stamped or stenciled patterns to enhance the aesthetics and seamlessly blend them into the design.
- Concrete mixing and pouring: Following the instructions on the concrete mix bags, we will prepare the concrete mixture in a wheelbarrow or concrete mixer, achieving the ideal workable consistency. Our experienced professionals will pour the concrete into the forms, starting from one end and progressing methodically.
- Surface leveling and smoothing: Espina Paving will employ screed boards to level the concrete, ensuring a uniform surface by using a sawing motion. Any low spots will be filled with additional concrete to maintain consistency. Once leveled, our team will use trowels to achieve a smooth finish.
- Surface finishing: We will utilize floats to create a slightly rough texture on the concrete surface, enhancing traction and aesthetics. It's important to wait for the concrete to firm up slightly before proceeding with this step.
- Curing and protection: Espina Paving will cover the newly poured concrete with plastic sheeting or apply a curing compound, ensuring moisture retention for proper curing. We will adhere to the specific instructions provided with the curing compound, if used. The concrete will be allowed to cure for a recommended duration before foot traffic is permitted.
- Form removal and cleanup: Once the concrete has fully cured, our team will meticulously remove the wooden forms, leaving behind a clean and finished sidewalk. We will also clean up any excess concrete or debris in the surrounding area.
By entrusting your concrete sidewalk project to Espina Paving, you can be confident in our expertise and attention to detail. Our goal is to deliver a high-quality and durable sidewalk that meets your specifications and exceeds your expectations.

Safety Measures During Concrete Paving Projects
In addition to the steps mentioned above, as a responsible contractor, Espina Paving prioritizes safety during the construction of a concrete projects. To ensure the well-being of workers and pedestrians, we take the following measures to secure the work area:
- Signage and barricades: We place visible signs and barricades around the construction site to alert pedestrians and motorists of the ongoing work. This helps to divert foot traffic and vehicles away from the area, reducing the risk of accidents.
- Temporary fencing: In certain cases, we install temporary fencing around the work zone to create a physical barrier and restrict access. This prevents unauthorized entry and keeps pedestrians at a safe distance from the construction activities.
- Traffic control measures: If the sidewalk construction affects vehicular traffic, our team implements appropriate traffic control measures. This may include setting up temporary traffic signs, cones, or flaggers to guide drivers safely through the area, minimizing disruptions and potential hazards.
- Warning tapes or barriers: To further enhance safety, we use caution tapes or barriers around the perimeter of the construction site. These visual indicators serve as a clear boundary, ensuring that people maintain a safe distance and are aware of the work in progress.
- Lighting and visibility: We ensure proper lighting in the work area, especially if construction extends into the evening or early morning hours. Sufficient illumination helps workers see clearly and enables pedestrians and motorists to identify potential hazards more easily.
- Worker safety gear: All our team members adhere to strict safety protocols and wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during construction. This includes items such as hard hats, high-visibility vests, safety boots, gloves, and eye protection, ensuring their safety while on site.
- Regular inspections and maintenance: Throughout the project, we conduct regular inspections to identify any potential safety risks or hazards. We promptly address any issues that may arise, such as uneven surfaces or loose materials, to maintain a secure work environment.
At Espina Paving, safety is an integral part of our construction practices. By implementing these measures, we strive to create a work zone that prioritizes the well-being of both our workers and the general public.

Concrete Repair and Preventative Maintenance Services
Concrete is tough, but there are several preventative maintenance techniques Espina Paving uses to make sure it lasts as long and as safely as possible so you get the best investment for your money. These techniques include:
- Concrete Stabilization—If you have areas of sunken concrete, these are usually the result of poor sub base preparation or drainage issues. We pump a special mixture of cement underneath the existing concrete to raise it level with the surrounding concrete slabs.
- Concrete Sealants—We apply sealants to protect concrete from erosion and corrosion from water, snowmelt chemical and other spills.
- Epoxy Coating—We apply chemical-resistant epoxy coatings that come in many different colors; this protects the concrete from spill corrosion and provides a great, customized finish.
- Crack Chasing—This is what we call cutting into concrete cracks to repair them with a filling compound such as an epoxy.
- Joint Caulking—We seal cracks in the concrete with a durable, flexible urethane caulk to prevent water from getting down into the foundation. This also prevents further cracking and erosion.
- Grinding—We grind down the high side of two slabs of concrete so that it lies flush with lower sections; this prevents hazards such as tripping and falling.
- Power Washing—Pressure washing concrete can help it look fresher and extend its lifespan by removing corroding chemicals and spills.
