Traditionally, the average garage slab is 4 inches thick and has 12-inch thick turn-down edges. The size of the vehicles that you will be storing inside the garage will help to how thick the slab should be and what other materials should be added in order to maintain the concrete’s structural integrity.
Hard Trowel Finish
A hand trowel finish is an option that is available for Providence concrete slabs. A steel trowel is used in the process to densify the surface as well as achieve a surface finish that is smooth and hard.
As implied by the term, this process involves dragging a broom or another similar tool across your Providence home’s concrete slab, to leave a uniform appearance. The textured finish, in addition to providing visual aesthetics, helps with other issues such as drainage and traction.
There are many advantages offered by decorative concrete flooring, including being low maintenance, durable, attractive, and economical.

However, concrete is all done by humans, and small imperfections can occur, even under the closest possible supervision.
- Many factors can damage concrete that is beyond control, including vehicles, equipment, chemicals, de-icers, wear and tear, and other factors.
Concrete will definitely crack. This is the nature of the material. The warranty is defined is the extent of cracked concrete. The concrete construction industry considers cracks that are less than one half of an inch in gap or height to be normal.
Concrete will shift and settle. A concrete slab is going to settle, no matter how well the soil is compacted. Since soil cannot be controlled, we do not warrant settling and shifting.
Weathering can cause stone to become exposed. However, that does not comprise the slab’s integrity. The concrete construction industry considers all popping and flaking that covers less than 20% of the slab’s surface to be normal.
Each concrete mix design is unique. We cannot precisely match the color of an existing design. We do not warrant that any of the work that we do will exactly match an existing product.
