Additional Information

Just when you think you know all there is about concrete, many new innovations create faster, more efficient ways to do the work. This comprehensive concrete manual has both the tried-and-tested methods and materials, and more recent innovations. It covers everything you need to know about concrete along with Styrofoam forming systems, fiber reinforcing adjuncts, and some architectural innovations, like architectural foam elements, that can help you offer more in the jobs you bid on.

Forming, one of the most important elements of concrete work, gets special attention. Innovative forming systems offer significant benefits, but many contractors steer clear because they re unfamiliar. This book gives you the know-how, so you can take advantage of everything that is out there.

Every chapter provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for each task, with hundreds of photographs and drawings that show exactly how the work is done. Here you ll find:

How to select the right concrete material for the job. Includes laying out foundations and footings. New footing forms, including Form-A-Drain and stepped footings including prefabricated building forms -- plywood, corrugated-paper, and Steel-Ply® forming systems. Insulated polystyrene concrete forms (ICFs), including ARXX® and Outsulation® systems. It explains planning the pour and what to expect in pre-pour inspections. Shoes new techniques for concrete reinforcement, pouring, testing, installing joints, finishing and curing the concrete. Gives info on hot and cold weather pours. Explains techniques for Shotcrete and gunite applications. Also shows special concrete finishes and textures. As a bonus you'll find tips for estimating concrete quantities for large and small projects. Also provides OSHA requirements for working with concrete. There are checklists for each stage of the concrete work, from planning, to finishing and protecting your pours.

Whether you re doing residential or commercial work, this manual has the instructions, illustrations, charts, estimating data, rules of thumb and examples every contractor can apply on their concrete jobs.
