Concrete Question


Before doing any kind of concrete work...you should contact your local building inspector to get all the local codes met.

To answer your question...

Conventional pour


Alaskan slab more commonly known as monolithic pour


Alaskan slab with cold weather protection.

Concrete Question


All my Alaskan slabs were fillets from a salmon. - A 15# silver is better eating than 44# lake trout.

Concrete Question


That was just a 30+ year old Lake Trout that weighed about 44# at time of catching it. It was a citizen of southern Canada (Ontario, about 30 miles north of the Minnesota border and I did not eat it. We also got a 28 pounder and a 48" Northern Pike the same morning. The only "slabs" we had for shore lunch were the fillets of 1 1/2 to 2# Walleyes that are the prime eating fish and every Walleye over 2# went back in the water.
