Concrete patios are typically 4 inches in thickness. However, if a sidewalk supports motorized service vehicles or crosses a driveway, it may need to be as much as 8 inches in thickness.
Concrete has a significantly lower cost when compared to paving stones. On average, concrete costs about $7-$10 per square foot, while paving stones have a cost of approximately $9-$14 per square foot. It’s important to consider long-term costs in addition to upfront costs for these materials.
A concrete finisher is a skilled tradesperson who works with concrete by placing, finishing, protecting and repairing concrete in engineering and construction projects. Concrete finishers are often responsible for setting the concrete forms, ensuring they have the correct depth and pitch. Concrete finishers place the concrete either directly from the concrete wagon chute, concrete pump, concrete skip or wheelbarrow. They spread the concrete using shovels and rakes, sometimes using a straightedge back and forth across the top of the forms to screed or level the freshly placed concrete. After levelling the concrete, they smooth the surface using either a hand trowel, a long handed bull float or by using powered floats. After the concrete has been leveled and floated, concrete finishers press an edger between the forms and the concrete to chamfer the edges so that they are less likely to chip.
