Concrete Curb and Gutter Services
Curb that Borders on Perfection…
Adding a border to your parking lot or road, concrete curb and gutter is the standard in North Carolina.
Benefits of Curbing
- Define water flow to points of collection, such as storm drains, to keep your parking lot from flooding and to help reduce erosion.
- Strengthen the edge of your asphalt, protecting shoulders by keeping traffic contained.
- Provide a protective barrier against steep lot drop-offs.
Attention to grade is vitally important to laying new curb and gutter. Not only for the flow along the curb but the flow between receiving and spill points through other surfaces such as the parking lot and landscape areas. It is not unusual for us to arrive at a job to do the paving in which the curb and gutter was already placed by others that we find grade issues that involve replacing curb that creates problems for the new surfaces. Handicap areas out of spec or not enough pitch to the drains through the parking lot are common problems. Different surfaces need different percentages of pitch on different surfaces to keep water flow moving and a reasonable rate. As with all concrete applications, quality of craftsmanship varies considerably from contractor to contractor. Weather conditions may also have adverse effect on the quality of the curb.
