You’ll be surprised at how inexpensive our products are when compared to other edging materials. The quality, beauty, and durability of the results, in addition to the fact that it is completely installed with no work for the home owner, make us quite a value. Compared to “do it yourself” blocks that can be purchased and installed yourself, our prices are very comparable AND professionally installed. Concrete curbing prices will vary based on shape, stamps, colors, terrain and prep work involved, however it will cost the average homeowner between $5.00 to $11.00 per linear foot.
How To Care For Your New Concrete Curbing
Stamped concrete curbing takes 28 days to fully cure. The curing time for each installation is different. Your new curbing requires 2 hours of curing before it can handle light rain and 24 hours before it can withstand foot traffic. Try not to bump or hit your new curbing with hard objects for 28 days. You will notice the color changing during the curing process. This is normal for the curing process of concrete.
Crack Prevention and Guarantee
To help prevent cracking in your newly installed concrete, wait at least 12 hours after the installation before you water the surrounding sod or flower beds. If your ground is too dry the concrete can absorb moisture which can cause some cracking, so water lightly to keep the slightly moist during the first few days of curing.
Concrete curbing like any other type of concrete can and will crack. We experience very little cracking in our products. A control joint is placed every 2-3 feet to help prevention of cracking in other spots; however, if it should crack, we will replace it at no charge during the warranty period of 1 year. A warning, however, is important to note: Repairs can be difficult to make in colored concrete. It is impossible to get a perfect color match. Sometimes the “cure is worse than the ill”. A hairline crack is much less noticeable than a patch or discoloration in the curbing.
The sealer that is used on your concrete during installation is a sealer with 20-30% acrylic solid. It slows the process of curing which helps prevent cracking. Although glossy at first, this sealer will result in a matte finish over time. Sealer should be applied and maintained to prevent damage to the curb. We can return after the cement has fully cured to apply a more glossy sealer however this is not included in the install price. If we installed the curb charges will be minimal as a customer appreciation gesture.
Tree Root Damage
Over time, tree roots may lift and break some areas of your curbing. When this occurs, lift out the broken section of curbing, cut and remove the root that is doing the damage and lay the curb back down using fill dirt as support.
Things to Watch out for While Concrete is Curing
Make sure sprinkler systems do not come on for at least 24 hours. The Irrigation backwash from pools, condensate lines or rain can damage the curb. Keep pets, children and objects away from the curb for at least 24 hours. Installation of Sod, sprinkler work and landscape work can be started 24 hours after installation; however, caution must be taken as shovels, picks and wheelbarrows can damage the curb for several more days while it is fully curing. If curbing is damaged we will come back and make necessary repairs; however, there is a minimum charge for this service of $150 dollars.
When curbing is installed as a retrofit, (grass already in place) there will be a small amount of concrete on the ground between the new curb and the grass. It is very difficult to remove this concrete while it is still wet. After a 24 hour curing period, it can be picked up in small pieces and thrown away. Since we have not included a return trip in the price of our curbing to do this, we ask that you take a few minutes to remove the excess concrete. This will allow your grass to grow back against the curb. You may want to place sand and/or dirt in this area as well, if there are voids between the curb and grass.
Your curbing has a one year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. It will be replaced at no charge if the defect is caused by the materials we use or the way it was installed by our workmen.
