Concrete Flatwork "Details"

Concrete "Floor to Apron" Joint

At Jarvis Builders we pour our Concrete Floor separately from the Apron. They require 2 different Concrete Mixes. We use 6 sack Native Stone with No Air Internment for Interior Floors so they can be Steel Troweled Smooth. We use 6 sack Limestone with Full Air Internment for Outside Flatwork. The Limestone is harder and more durable for Outside Concrete, but hard to get a good finish Steel Troweled. The Air Internment makes Concrete more elastic and durable for Exterior Concrete, but will create Air Bubbles under the surface if Steel Troweled with a Power Trowel and weaken the surface.

We pour our Concrete Floor 1st and form the joint 3" into the Floor. Once the forms are removed we drill along the edge and place 1/2" steel rebar dowels 3' o.c. Then we pour the Concrete Apron. The Dowels tie the Floor & Apron together so they won't heave.

When finished, the Overhead Door actually rests on the Apron. Water or Snow would have to go under the door and climb the 3/4" lip to get onto the Floor.
