Commercial Slab Projects

Those in the business of concrete know the importance of a flat and level slab. Especially in industrial warehouse settings, where unmanned forklifts rule the floor and goods may be stacked on shelves 20 feet or higher, flatness and level specifications are a key indicator of project success.

But other businesses are catching on. Flatter and more level floors have been shown to be lower maintenance and provide an improved operational surface for many types of businesses. As a result, the demand for flatter floors is being seen in many different types of projects, from warehouses to retail store operations…

Basement Foundation Waterproofing

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!

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.

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…

Basement Foundation

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…
