Site Assessment: Someone from our team will visit your property to assess the project requirements. We will work with you to understand your preferences and goals for the walkway. This will help us to make the best plan and method to build your new walkway.
Design and Planning: Based on the client's input and site assessment, the concrete company's design team creates a custom design for the walkway. This includes determining the layout, shape, dimensions, and any unique architectural elements or decorative features to be incorporated.
Site Preparation: The designated area for the walkway is prepared for construction. This involves clearing vegetation, leveling the ground, and ensuring proper drainage to prevent water pooling.
Formwork and Reinforcement: The concrete company installs formwork along the edges of the walkway to establish the desired shape and dimensions. They may also incorporate steel reinforcement, such as rebar or wire mesh, to enhance strength and durability.
Concrete Placement: The concrete is mixed according to the specified design requirements and poured into the prepared area. The concrete company utilizes techniques such as screeding, troweling, and floating to ensure a smooth and level surface.
Customization and Finishing: Depending on the design, the concrete company may incorporate custom architectural features or decorative elements during the pouring process. This can include stamped patterns, textures, inlays, or special finishes that enhance the walkway's aesthetic appeal.
Curing and Protection: Once the concrete is placed, the walkway undergoes a curing process to allow it to gain strength and durability. The concrete company may apply curing compounds or protective coverings to retain moisture and promote proper curing.
Clean-up and Site Restoration: After the walkway is fully cured, the concrete company cleans up the site, removing any debris or construction materials. They restore the surrounding landscape, ensuring the walkway seamlessly integrates into its environment.

We would like to thank all of our customers who have taken a little time out of their busy day to leave a comment about their experience with Excalibur.
Excalibur's Bryan Warman and crew planned and constructed a new outdoor entry area and side yard walkway at our Queen Anne home, including concrete debris removal, regrading, adding a retaining wall and crushed stone base, and bringing in expert cement masons to pour a new entry and sidewalk -- all while protecting an extensive irrigation and electrical lighting system. Completed project is attractive, safer and much more functional.
Was great working with Excalibur. Their crew was awesome, always asking if they were doing the job to my satisfaction. They came out and cleaned up 10 acres of overgrown property that you could barely walk through. Their mulching machinery is very impressive and highly effective. I plan to have them do more work for me in the future.
Great communication from the get go, great price for shed pad and very professional with the end result being spectacular! The shed installers commented on pad construction and attached photo shows end result. Services: Concrete masonry, Yard grading, Grading & resloping
Overgrown field mowing. On time, on price. Very easy to work with. Will do business again.
Bryan and his crew were very professional and courteous. They arrived on time, did the grading required and did an excellent job of cleanup when they were done. We were very pleased with the job.
Bryan and his whole team was very helpful, fast and did a tremendous job. I think the driver went a little over our allotted 4 hours but don't tell the boss. I would highly recommend reaching out to Excalibur for any land clearing needs. Great Job!!!
Excellent customer service and quality of work. Professional. Fair pricing. Highly recommended.
