|Cement or Concrete?Technically, cement is the major ingredient (along with sand, gravel, water, and other possible additives) used to make concrete mix. So when you refer to the finished product, “concrete” is the proper term, though people often say “cement” to mean the same thing. Different types of cement mixes are used to form different types of concrete, which can be used in different construction applications.|
|Want a Concrete Patio?Concrete is one of the most popular construction materials in the nation. It is strong, durable, and versatile enough to be used in many applications. Additionally, poured concrete can be made to have many different appearances, making it suitable for everything from sidewalks and roads to living room floors. One of the benefits of pouring concrete is that it can take whatever shape you want it to form. This makes it a perfect material for creating a flat, solid surface in almost any situation, even when poured over itself!|
|Pouring Concrete Patios|
|What’s not to like about a concrete patio? They’re inexpensive, low-maintenance, and in most cases, they are a viable option for households that want a little more outdoor living in their lives. They can be covered to be perfect for relaxing on a sunny summer day or fitted with a fireplace or stove to accommodate winter use. In the world of home improvement, poured concrete patios are also one of the more simple home improvement projects you can enter, as well.|
|Pouring concrete is not, however, completely fool-proof. If you mix it yourself, getting the right consistency can be difficult. Additionally, you have to worry about having the proper surface to pour your concrete upon. In many cases, you’ll need to dig deeper than the actual thickness you want the concrete to be and create a gravel base. You may also want to add reinforcement (for a patio, wire mesh should be sufficient). Concrete can also be finished in several different ways, each of which can require some attention to detail.|
Instructions For Do-It-Yourselfers
Pads and sidewalks: First, remove grass and topsoil. If area is not well drained a base of compacted pea stone, recycled process, or trap rock is recommended. This will help prevent water from washing out the base or freezing and heaving the concrete.
Using 2″x4″‘s or 2″x6″‘s frame out the area. Level the forms and steak the outside of the forms to secure them. Measure and cut a board to “Screed” the concrete after pouring it.
Measure the area to be formed. A one inch difference in a 10’x10′ pad means approximately 21% more concrete, so measure carefully. Calculate the amount of concrete needed. Use the concrete calculator from here:
Make sure you have the correct concrete tools for your particular job. Using the correct finishing tools is essential to ensure a quality project.

“Screed” the concrete. Screeding is the process of smoothing the concrete by using a 2x4 in a sawing motion over the concrete. This levels the concrete with the surrounding forms. It also recommended that the forms be gently tapped from the outside to eliminate any air pockets.
“Float” the concrete to smooth out any remaining rough areas. Be careful not to “overwork” the concrete. At this time you can also edge the concrete with and edging tool.
After all “bleed water” has evaporated from the surface, finish with a sharp edged “steel trowel”. This will produce a very smooth finish. A “broom finish” is recommended for areas that may get wet and slippery such as: sidewalks and pool decks. This is accomplished by dragging a broom across the concrete after using the “steel trowel” for the final time. A final pass with the edging tool will give the broom finish a clean cut off at the edges.
The process of the concrete setting up is a chemical reaction not a “drying out” of the concrete. Water is an important part of this reaction. It is important that the concrete be kept moist especially in hot weather. Concrete that cures too fast may be weak which would cause it to flake, peel, or dust.
