We have replaced these damaged concrete steps with new bull-nosed steps.
Last winter was not kind to our clients steps. However, our client read our reviews, viewed our YouTube videos and decided that we were best qualified to replace her steps. Of course she made a great decision. Tell me what you think.

In 1824, Joseph Aspdin, a British stone mason, obtained a patent for a cement he produced in his kitchen. The inventor heated a mixture of finely ground limestone and clay in his kitchen and ground the mixture into a powder creating a hydraulic cement – one that hardens with the addition of water. Aspdin named the product portland cement because it resembled a stone quarried on the Isle of Portland off the British Coast. With this invention, Aspdin laid the foundation for today's portland cement industry. The

Instead of replacing the damaged concrete patio shown below, we spread a cement overlay on top of the damaged concrete. First, we prepped the damaged patio by removing all loose material that would prevent a solid bond. We then applied a glue and 2 applications of cement. The cement overlay is approximately 1/2 inch per application. After waiting a day, we then saw-cut the diamond shapes into the 1" overlay. Lastly, we cleared the saw cutting dust and applied 2 coats of a high gloss clear concrete sealer. Looks can be deceiving, the work appears like a completely replaced concrete patio but for less then half the cost.

We have replaced 4 damage concrete steps. Our step work is leveled with straight lines. There are many "fly by night" contractors that can't get this right. Either 1 step is too big our their form work is not right and they try to fix or dress up the errors in the cementing phase.

We installed a concrete extension for this customer. They live in Manayunk and require additional rear parking. We created another parking space to accommodate an additional vehicle. We had to remove the fencing to achieve maximum width.

I was contracted to pour concrete footings at Malta Boat House on Kelly Drive. The boat house also have exterior racks for their boats that were sitting unevenly on dirt. Our job is to construct footings that will allow the new racks to fasten to a solid and leveled surface.

I enjoyed this project because of the unique and scenic position along the Schuylkill River. I also enjoyed feeling the energy of the people running, walking or biking along the Kelly walkway.

Several years ago we pour an exposed aggregate walkway for John Kelly at boat house #10. He referred us to Malta which is how we were awarded this project.

A sump pump isn't always the best solution to solving your water problems. A more cost effective solution may be to simply correct the problem on the outside. Very often, water penetrates along the exterior perimeter of the foundation then leaks into the basement walls or floor. Adding concrete along the perimeter is a cheaper solution than a sump pump. Pitching the concrete away from the foundation works well as a waterproofing alternative.
Displayed below, we have installed concrete around this clients foundation which solved his waterproofing issues.
