New Shop Concrete Slab!


a Concrete guy showed up today late this evening. He was actually wasn’t supposed to start until tomorrow, but he stopped by today and Went ahead and got started with a little bit of the grading and he got the the old concrete pads Pulled off out of the way, which is right there the pad And then the old little ramp that was there in front of the new door so he just left and they’re gonna be back tomorrow and It’s going to be about a two day project. He said it would be all Let’s see today’s Monday tomorrow. They’re going to get it formed up get the rebar in get it graded and Concrete is scheduled for Wednesday on this one here just A little bit of progress for today, and hopefully in two days We’re going to have some new concrete out here, so I get home tomorrow I’ll get the camera and give you another update of what all has been done and this should all be Formed up and ready to go all Right now we’ll mention The two pads back here in the back Just because it has scheduling conflicts He asked if he could push these back since these are not You know that garage slab and this patio slab is not a high priority My priority is the shop right now, and he understands that so he’s going to push these two back I I think probably after Thanksgiving to get those done There’s this there’s his machine he’s using pretty neat Just a little ride-along bucket You can get that in probably a four foot fence there Okay guys, it’s Tuesday. I’m giving you the next day’s update. I just come home for lunch, and I’m watching the guys Right now they’re getting the ground prep They’re gonna have some dirt brought in here in a little while And now they’re getting rid of the grass and you can see the forms you can see just how high it’s gonna be now It’s gonna be up there This side really kind of dramatic on how high it’s going to be That’s what I wanted I wanted a nice nice even slab, they’ll have it graded so that it’ll all be even That’s errand on the premier he’s one of the business partners Joe is the guy that I’ve been dealing with Joe server he’ll be here later today or tomorrow to belt with all the forming I Just got home from work. I was able to sneak out just a little bit early They let me go like get home and get a little bit more of the footage of the work going on the day They’ve been busy at it. You can see they got their dirt in there they’re getting it elevated and graded properly so that you have a Proper six inch thick slab. I got one of the other fellas in there I think his name is Robert. I need to ask him again, but I think that’s Robert up there. He’s putting the rebar in You can see our number five rebar. That’s five eight Five eight rebar There’s going to be a lot of it It’s going to be on a 12 inch grid in there And we also just talked about extending the ramp since it’s going to be kind of high We were going to go with a six-foot ramp, and we’re talking about going with an eight So this is Aaron Aaron say He’s over here helping get the work done He’s one of Joe’s business partners correct Okay, all right What’s looking good? Guys are doing a good job You can see where they got this packed they got a tampo over there, they’ve been packing it down And getting they’re getting rebar spaced out All right, so here’s a little walkway that they’re building for me to go to the door we will have a step there step down with a Little sidewalk going down there to the door you can see they cut that old slab out of there that little step that We got the tools to get the job done there huh my steel concrete saw I’ll point out to You can see it in there. I’ve got a piece of pipe that I asked to lay down in there That’s coming out over here, and that’s it’s capped right now That’s gonna allow me to have access to pull wires over there to the other side of the shop I want to run a hard line out here for enternet later coming from the house So that’s what that pipes going to be for you know in any other kind of wires that I might need to put through there Okay, we’re back at the second day of the progress on the slab work Getting the foundation stuff done Joe’s here today working on one of the form boards and Roberts over there doing some Drilling into the old slab So the over there drilling into the old slab And they’re going to stick some rebar in there and epoxy them and then they’ll be tied off to the to the other rebar That’s going to be gritted in the middle of the slab there So this is Joe he’s the he’s the man that I hired to do the job here Joe wants to tell everybody who you are a little bit about about your business My name is Jose around with zero concrete owner/operator I inherited this job from this company from my father who started in 1975 I’ve been doing this is how? 1640 so I’ve been doing it quite a while, yeah a lot of experience absolutely I prefer a lot of the flat work I’m not big on columns necessarily or High-rises like my father did when he was my age but like the residential jobs look a more intimate I can take a little bit more time and pretty much feel Right very cool, so you do a lot of foundation work in slab work I do some slabs and foundations for sure I guess our bread and butter would be driveways okay patios Um like I said, I’m usually on Someone’s property residents. Yeah a 90 percent of my work is Some commercial projects okay all right cool So you building me a nice strong slab here absolutely just a 3500 psi concrete six inch depth Industry doesn’t use wire that much anymore So we use a fiber mesh substitute that they mix, right? Okay compacted the plate tamper good solid foundation with sandy clay mix and And we got our five-eighths rebar that we’re setting centers so that’s fine enough Aaron said that we’re building a runway I Think the airport might have something comparable to this yeah absolutely But if it helps someone eat sleep easy at night to get all this reinforcement then certainly encourage that yeah I definitely asked for a strong slab, so this is what he recommend, and that’s what he’s giving me, so well It’s looking good man and appreciate you mentioning who you are on camera. I’m sure all the viewers are gonna Enjoy that so you might get a few extra calls out of it. I hope so all right. Thanks, man. Thank you So Joe’s finished up for today. He’s there. Is he just getting ready to head out of here but he’s gonna be here at 6:30 in the morning to finish this forming to get all this ramp done and He’s also going to put a small pad in the very back corner for me for the air compressor He’s going to do that in the morning as well, and he says concrete is scheduled for approximately 10:30 in the morning So this will all be ready for him by the time the truck gets here, and he’ll start Getting the first truck poured Welcome back guys, so today’s the day of the pour We’re expecting the truck here shortly. Hopefully within the next 15-20 minutes or so it was scheduled for 10:30 So just got here and catching the guys finishing up on the the prep work here And I had asked Joe if there was any extra dirt there If he could put it here because we did create some divots here in the yard from the truck, and I imagine there’s gonna be Some more to deal with later after the fact you Can see up there they got their what they called chairs to elevate the rebar The right tool there makes it quick And Joe’s back here prepping the little pad for the air compressor All right, they made it All right here we go Go So what they’re having to do is as the concrete is poured They’re making sure that the rebar is properly elevated And that’s what he told me he’s going to do throughout the floor there. They started the chairs on the backside but they’re gonna they’re gonna add them as they do the floor and then use the pickaxe to make sure that the the Rebar is up hot enough He says that he pulls it through the concrete To make sure that it is elevated properly That’s pretty good ever seen a before Looks like it just by braces and make sure the concrete flows down in there evenly Huh, they’re pouring the right way a lot of finishing oh really Got all the concrete Joe good they finish one truck out then What you gonna do? Okay Gotcha Guy What does that do that just provides a nice flat surface there yeah, he kind of evens it out takes all the bumps out and seals the top bring the Went to the top though we can get okay So they’re getting the ramp graded out and even ready for the concrete As the other truck Don’t know Summer All right The good thing is that there is an amount As long as you got enough money, they’ll keep bringing it right So they’re getting ready to start to rent up here in a minute, you know finished getting degraded here get a foam board down Robert’s doing a good job floating that concrete down So they got to have one more truck cone there about two yards, shy I Think they’re gonna have a little bit more right here And then they still got the sidewalk and the pad on the the backside there that they got the poor Guys are waiting on that third truck to get here if those last two yards looks like they’re getting the edges Formed in just putting on like a radius on the corner of the concrete there Third truck just arrived and ready to finish this out All right getting that last corner Durant finished in It’s like they’re getting ready to put something in the world barrel for the sidewalk There’s our little compressor pad And we got a proper sidewalk All right, we’re getting close, they’re getting down to the finish and stages now my everything Everything’s looking good Aaron. I like them radiused edges like that Not quite we’ll do it Like he’s got his first What control joint formed up in there? They’re gonna do it X pattern at that one this way, and then we’ll have one more going across there with that string is You’re doing your brush Venice now I was just putting the final touches on the little sidewalk now brush it in and I’m putting the little control joints in it make it look nice and even We’ve just about come to the end of the day I wanted to point this out Joe really helped me out by using that little familiar and filling this the trenches here with all the trucks came through He had a little bit leftover dirt, and it worked out this fine I’ll have to come out here and do some grading you know with my fork. I’m sorry with my rake I can handle that that was real nice of them to do that though So he’s back there now, I think he’s going to just start putting the brush finished on the sidewalk area It was still a little wet earlier But he’s got all this brushed out It looks good, I’m happy with it. He did a good job his crew did a good job They’re all a bunch of nice guys And and they know what they’re doing you can tell they’ve been doing it for a while, and they’ve got a lot of experience I’m looking forward to being able to work on this Have a nice outside work area now I’ll be able to easily transfer Machinery and tools into the other side of the shop now that I got that pallet jack I can go in and out it’s going to be a real nice help there So really looking forward to having this where I can get on it. They did recommend me. Wait a couple weeks before I put any Any substantial loads on it, so we’re gonna have to wait a little while and let it cure Before we get our machines in here All right guys, it’s Friday. Just got home from work, and that’s the next day. It’s been 24 hours since they made the Concrete pour out here, so I’m giving you one final shot for the week I’m putting this video together for SNS or for the SNS timeslot anyway, so just gonna give you one more shot of it You know after it’s been a drying for a day So I want to get out here this weekend. You know it’s kind of dusty from the from the broom finished if You need to get that swept and blow it off, which what I’m going to work on But guys I’m happy with it, I’m very happy to see this done and It’s just going to be a nice addition to the shop right here allow me to Have a nice outside work area outside work area for now Because I don’t know what the future is going to hold for me This could eventually be more shop space which is really what I hope ends up happening But we’ll see we’re just going to have to Wait until that’s feasible for me to do, but I would really like to see that happen Just take a little walk around and check it out I’m gonna have to build me a step right there. It’s pretty high But I’ll get some timbers probably build like a nice two by twelve step and step down into the carport there Got to do some grading and some yard work out here got to get my Rakes out and get busy on now, but I’m gonna wait On this until they take the form boards off which is going to be next week he said he’d be back sometime didn’t next week to get the form boards off and He is going to come and get the trash pile over there. That was part of the job He just asked if he could climb out a different date and pick all that up with the tractor And I told him that was fine. That’s not in my way Long as it gets out of here It looks good I’m happy with it I’m gonna go ahead and get busy and try to get some stuff done around here this weekend. I want to I Just got some different things. I’m going to do so we’ll just leave it at that but Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed watching this video of the concrete pour drop me a comment. Let me know what you think and We’re gonna have some more concrete towards the end of the month out here, and I’ll be sure to share it out with you too, okay, so Anyway guys, thanks for tuning in. Thank you for all your support Everybody that supports me across YouTube. Thanks for your comments and your likes. Thank you all the patreon guys I really appreciate it all of your help.

A few mistakes on the pour.
1. No lean concrete on the soil
2. Not enough expansion joins
3. No rebars on the ramp
4. No curing of the concrete
5. Forms should have been taken out at the ramp

Honest question: why do concrete guys not use the rebar chairs? I see this a lot and seems like it’s a hassle trying to pull the rebar up while the concrete is poured. Plus half the time they are tripping over themselves trying to pull the rebar up.

What big convenience am I missing by not using them?

Steel rod, 6" thick, fiber mesh, a bit over- kill. The fiber mesh will strengthen the concrete up to 10 fold alone. 4" pad with steel rod is sufficient .

16:10 clip — James the Concrete Driver is telling you the inside scoop. YES, JOE ZERBER is pouring about a 3 1/2" slump — very dry but the quality of the mix is dry (with no water) and will last a lifetime if not more! Great job on the slab guys…. like the driver said, a lot of concrete guys just had the FREE WATER and let it crack like crazy. Abom79 — your slab was done right! Worth whatever you paid those hard working guys.

Best to put cement bricks under the bars, cement bricks don;t carry humidity. After the cement is hard is good to water it to make it more strong.

NEVER NEVER NEVER LET CONCRETE DRY WHILE IT IS CURING!!!!! CURING IS A CHEMICAL REACTION OF THE INGREDIENTS THAT TRANSFORM THEM TO CONCRETE!!!!! ANY CONTRACTOR WHO LETS IT DRY DOES NOT KNOW HIS BUSINESS. IT SHOULD WET-CURE FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS – LONGER IF YOU WANT IT TO REALLY LAST A LONG TIME. WHEN I DO CONCRETE, I KEEP IT WET FOR 100+ DAYS SO THAT WILL LAST 100A+ YEARS.

Those "pin stripes" are those perhaps because of expansion of the concrete when its this big and thus avoid any cracks or such? Because I can't see any reason for them otherwise.

the air vibrating tool he was using helps to settle evenly the concrete and stops air bubble pockets forming and then popping where it would leave like small cavities if you like ,i used one on a site where we were building sewage pumping and treatment station we had to build concrete walled areas 90 feet in depth.People will look at you driveway and say"oh yes man that's great looking "but what with rebar and everything else they don't realise how hard concreting and finishing is.

Great flat work Adam! And I thought I was the king of overkill! Lol… you should be able to pull loaded semi trucks onto that puppy!.. I just got done pouring a 50×100 for my new shop. 6" thick but only 1/2" rebar on a 12" grid..3500 psi. But mine has 12 × 24 grade beams around the perimeter sitting on 24 18" piers 12 ft deep.. i called the project slabzilla because it kept eating tons (literally) of rebar! Going to let it cure for a month before erecting steel.. Hope you get to convert yours to a building someday. It's definitely strong enough for it! We met at the Lindale Good of the Land festival but I'm sure you don't remember me… keep on truckin'

Unfortunately lifting reinforcing steel as concrete is being placed without proper chairing is a bad practice. It leads to rebar either being too high or too low in the slab.

Plus one on the use of the mechanical vibrator for proper consolidation. I love seeing that

Forgive me but not buying the simplest and cheapest of tools to make the rebar sit above the ground an inch or two shouldn't have been that difficult. Homedepot sells the rebar chairs for like 20-30$ for a pack of 50. maybe even just a few pieces of solid wood would have been better than lifting the rebar, which would have then settled down to the bottom again. Idk, that just seemed pretty bad and yes I know the vid is old af.

Wait… I thought you said this was a shop slab. That shouldn't have a broom finish. Whenever you roll something around it's going to bounce all over the GD place. He should have hit that with a power trowel and burned it in nice. And that outside footing should have been 12" wide minimum to carry the weight of the shop walls. Oh well. I guess ya'll just do it differently out there. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
edit:
And I hate to be a party pooper, but wtf? He didn't even strip that step and face it when he was there. And as far as that death valley drop down to your carport… I'm assuming he offered to form a step there but you told him you didn't have the money for that??? It would have been so much better to just have him do it while the rest of this got poured. And check it out… I'm not totally ragging on the quality of work. I think they did do a very good job for what they did. I'm just saying the quality could have been a tick higher. And I'm comparing that to what I would have done with my crews.

this is wrong on so many levels,for starters they didn't stagger the rebar which gives it strength as putting all the splices does give it a weak point,it looks like they didnt put in epoxy dowels all the way across towards the smaller garage from what i can tell,they started right with the chairs then got lazy and tried to pick the rebar up with a ton of concrete on it lol,and as far as the concrete i'd have back the truck up juuust a bit more so they dont have to rake the concrete an additional 5 feet,and a slab that size i'd think if he's been doing it awhile he would have used screet pins,whats the kid screeting to???Also seems like he started with the fresno a bit soon but whatever,and with a 6 inch slab i kept looking and looking for someone to tamp it but that would require having some rock in the concrete which i saw none,nice slurry! hopefully it wont crack all to hell anytime soon!

Good review. When they do it right, they will use dobies to raise up the rebar from the ground surface 2" which are "spacers" and they are tied to the rebar so that the concrete guys don't knock them lose when walking on the rebar while pouring concrete and screeding the surface etc. Also, the soil is usually prepared with sand and gravel to allow the soil and concrete to shift as needed. some areas by code require plastic moisture barrier between the rebar and pouring surface. Some guys will even dowl the rebar into the garage concrete to help prevent any top surfaces from changing. This pour should help much with your shop use…hard to beat an extra few feet of concrete around buildings and between them especially when it fowl weather.

I manually mixed and poured the 17×8 extension off my back patio, and swore to the good lord above I would never mix another bag of cement ever again !
Hats of to those gentlemen because concrete work is back breaking ass busting work, and anyone that says otherwise needs to stop living in their moms basement and get a job for a few days and experience a little of the wet gray stuff !
Great video, great job, and looks awesome !
Very well done all around !

Why no rebar in the ramp?

I never realized there were so many concrete experts on YouTube. I'm amazed they had the time to comment, being so busy laying perfect slabs all day… Some people.

I enjoyed this video more than i thought i would i usually watch abom for the machining but this was a nice change of pace, and you could really tell that was a good tight crew that knew there trade and did it well.

For every 1% of air voids on your concrete you lose about 5-6% strength henceforth the need for compaction.

as far as i know, the rebar should never touch the ground, so it can be covered all around by concrete, because if water and oxygen have a chance to get to the rebar it will rost and theirfore not support the concrete anymore. yes it may take like 20 years to happen, but if animals get unter the slap, it could even happen faster than that.

The vibrator is not only to help it flow, it also helps work out any air pockets so you don’t end up with a giant crack during curing

hey adam. for that little shop in your video. Do you have all of the 3 phase hookups connected to that building? Just asking out of curiosity.

Why is hell did you have a brushed finish. Nice smooth finished would have been really nice to paint when you close it in for your expansion shop. Really would have been almost mirror smooth. As it is that surface will gather dirt and oil. They certainly took time to do a nice job for you. That lawn will heal in no time.

I love your videos man, but your intro is always 5-10min of explaining what your doing. which is totally understandable, but a time stamp in the description of when "work starts" would be greatly appreciated. I think I may have seen it on one of your newer videos in the descripstion, but either way, love the channel.
