New Shop Concrete Slab!

New Shop Concrete Slab!

Comments (22)

  1. Job came out nice

  2. the air vibrating tool he was using helps to settle evenly the concrete and stops air bubble pockets forming and then popping where it would leave like small cavities if you like ,i used one on a site where we were building sewage pumping and treatment station we had to build concrete walled areas 90 feet in depth.People will look at you driveway and say"oh yes man that's great looking "but what with rebar and everything else they don't realise how hard concreting and finishing is.

  3. Great flat work Adam! And I thought I was the king of overkill! Lol… you should be able to pull loaded semi trucks onto that puppy!.. I just got done pouring a 50ร—100 for my new shop. 6" thick but only 1/2" rebar on a 12" grid..3500 psi. But mine has 12 ร— 24 grade beams around the perimeter sitting on 24 18" piers 12 ft deep.. i called the project slabzilla because it kept eating tons (literally) of rebar! Going to let it cure for a month before erecting steel.. Hope you get to convert yours to a building someday. It's definitely strong enough for it! We met at the Lindale Good of the Land festival but I'm sure you don't remember me… keep on truckin'

  4. Look at these fools lifting the rebar quit being cheap and buy the feet spacers u put under it

  5. Unfortunately lifting reinforcing steel as concrete is being placed without proper chairing is a bad practice. It leads to rebar either being too high or too low in the slab.

    Plus one on the use of the mechanical vibrator for proper consolidation. I love seeing that

  6. Nice work by the concrete guys there ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ more space for the future is right ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  7. You should be at (AT LEAST) 500,000 Subscribers. I think that with the season change, this year, 2019, you will surpass that number.

  8. The man with the blue shirt is a Master Skreeter. Knows his stuff. The first cement truck driver. Um….

  9. Wet cement only does what you tell it to do. If you "tell" it the right thing, it will serve you "forever". Especially with re bar and in Florida! ๐Ÿ™‚ That will last as long as a bridge. (A well made bridge). I saw you take machine tools off your trailer on this driveway, before I saw this video. What piece of History. Adam Booth History. Ya, Adam; I'm Binging on your videos!! Hi, Abby!! Sorry. Mrs. Booth. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. The time lapse at the end was the icing on the cake. Wow. Silly Truck Drivers. Blue shirt guy. He deserves a RAISE!

  11. Enjoyed this video…

  13. Forgive me but not buying the simplest and cheapest of tools to make the rebar sit above the ground an inch or two shouldn't have been that difficult. Homedepot sells the rebar chairs for like 20-30$ for a pack of 50. maybe even just a few pieces of solid wood would have been better than lifting the rebar, which would have then settled down to the bottom again. Idk, that just seemed pretty bad and yes I know the vid is old af.

  14. What was the cost?

  15. So satisfying ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜

  16. My sister lived there in Pensacola for a few years.

  17. Do you know why my concrete is dark grey in color when I mix them on my own, with cement, sand and 3 quarter blue stone? I can't get the light grey color like the sidewalk concrete, ty

  18. I did this work as a young man. Thank god I got out of that trade. It will destroy your body over several years. I know, I have the relatives to prove it.

  19. You just gotta' know, them concrete workers went home as tired puppies. That is one hell of a lot of concrete to work by hand,

  20. New pad alone has a bigger footprint than my house!

  21. Man on the float will wear out his back. There should be a better way.

  22. howd u get the fuckin board out that seprates the slab and ramp

  23. Wait… I thought you said this was a shop slab. That shouldn't have a broom finish. Whenever you roll something around it's going to bounce all over the GD place. He should have hit that with a power trowel and burned it in nice. And that outside footing should have been 12" wide minimum to carry the weight of the shop walls. Oh well. I guess ya'll just do it differently out there. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
    edit:
    And I hate to be a party pooper, but wtf? He didn't even strip that step and face it when he was there. And as far as that death valley drop down to your carport… I'm assuming he offered to form a step there but you told him you didn't have the money for that??? It would have been so much better to just have him do it while the rest of this got poured. And check it out… I'm not totally ragging on the quality of work. I think they did do a very good job for what they did. I'm just saying the quality could have been a tick higher. And I'm comparing that to what I would have done with my crews.
