Deck Advance


Is it easy to lay concrete? I own a family home so when I move I want it children safe.

easy is a relative term, it is easy if you know how it's done and have the proper tools.

I would suggest getting some quotes from local contractors that specialize in placing concrete slabs. I think you may find the quotes will be less for a plain slab than your paver patio. Of course that is a "guess" because I'm in Massachusetts and not NC so I have no idea of local pricing in your area.

Thank you. I'll look for more quotes today. I have also relocated to Miami, FL.

Received two quotes for a 12x24ft paved patio and grass removed, will cost me $1350 from one, and it'll get done Wednesday or $1500 from another company.
