Your Trusted Minnesota
Concrete Apron Experts

As a leading concrete apron contractor in Minnesota, we have a deep understanding of the importance of high-quality concrete aprons. Concrete aprons are essential when changes in concrete grade are required. You may have noticed the gradual “sinking” at the top of your driveway, where your garage meets the street, or where a sidewalk smoothly transitions to the road. These unassuming features are known as concrete aprons, and their purpose is to enhance the accessibility and safety of your pavement for both pedestrians and drivers. We take great pride in our work because we recognize that it’s not solely about the concrete itself – it’s about improving your daily life, ensuring your peace of mind, and creating a secure and inviting environment for you and your family.

What Is a Concrete Apron?

If your asking yourself what a concrete apron is, it would be the first 2-6 feet of concrete between your garage floor and the driveway.

This area is often asphalt and is sunk well below the garage floor. An apron is especially necessary if your apron has sunk and you can see the block under the garage floor. The process to repair this area permanently is rather simple.

  • Measurements are taken and a cut, 2-6 feet out, is made across the driveway and the asphalt or concrete is removed.
  • All the block is filled and the subgrade is raised back to the original level with recycled crushed concrete.
  • The subgrade is then compacted with a double drum vibratory roller and/or vibratory plate.
  • Steel rebar is placed in the apron
  • Forms are set up around the area to be poured
  • Concrete is then delivered from a redi-mix plant and 4″ of 4500 PSI concrete is poured into the forms
  • Finishing tools are used to smooth and level the concrete
  • Control cuts/relief joints are placed in the concrete
  • A no-slip, brush finish is left on the surface
  • An application of cure & seal is applied to concrete

After completing your new apron, you will have a smooth transition from driveway to garage.
