Custom Concrete | Commercial Market

For more than 50 years, Custom Concrete has been exceeding the expectations of its customers by creating top-quality, reliable foundations and forming solid professional relationships through our attentiveness and punctuality. In recent years, we’ve taken those high standards of quality, skilled employees and specialized equipment, to the commercial market. In the past 24 months, Custom Concrete has employed a Team with more than 100-plus years of combined service that specialize in numerous areas of commercial projects.  We have completed a number of large-scale distribution facilities that total more than 1.4 million square feet and currently have more than one million square feet in current projects…

Healthy Concrete

Every now and then, we receive a rather frantic call from a customer who has discovered a small crack in their basement floor or a drip of water running down the basement wall. Ninety-nine percent of the time, we are able to assure them this is nothing with which they need to be concerned. Everyone together now: Whew! A few, small shrinkage cracks in both walls and slab concrete are normal and even expected. We advise homeowners to monitor them just to make sure they are not getting wider or leaking…

Drainage Issues

With the recent onslaught of afternoon thunderstorms (we’ve gone from Michigan weather to Florida weather in the course of a few days!), you may have noticed a little water in your basement. This may be the result of an insufficient slope away from your foundation or a sump pump that’s not in good, working order…

Commercial Construction Broadens Footprint

From the time Custom Concrete poured its first foundation, the emphasis was largely residential work. From those roots, we’ve grown to be a well-known and trusted provider of residential concrete foundation work throughout Central Indiana. That reputation and expertise in concrete lead us into a few small commercial projects that have ultimately become one of the fastest growing portions of our business…

Increase Property Values

We all know that a good, well-built house begins with a good foundation. But what if you could gain some added value out of that foundation? You can! It’s called a “basement.” Yes, the basement … For some of us, the basement was the epicenter of our teen years; for others, it’s the designated home office space. For homes of high style and fashion, it’s where family and friends gather in the home theater…

Winter Impacts Custom Concrete

Unless you were lucky enough to stay in say Florida or Hawaii for the winter, then you know this year’s Indiana winter has not been kind. This winter is among those in the record books with its brutal cold and seemingly endless snowfalls. The winter of 2013-2014 has had a major impact on the community as a whole compared to winters past.

Likewise, Custom Concrete and its production times have been impacted by the harshness of this winter season. Even with our winter concrete mix for slab work, temperatures must be at least 20 degrees and maintain 20 degrees or higher for a minimum of a six hour period. Safety is a priority at Custom Concrete. When road conditions are hazardous due to ice and blowing and drifting snow it is in the best interest of everyone to stay off the roads, be safe, and allow INDOT and DPW time to clear the roads. With the added risk of frost bite and hypothermia in a very short time, it has been imperative that our workers remain indoors for everyone’s well being…
