At Masonry Plus of Minnesota we believe it's the Big details that set us apart from our competition!
Before any concrete is placed. We grade and compact proper base materials for correct water drainage and a solid foundation for your concrete. We then Place and extensive Re Bar Grid which is placed inside the concrete for added strength and durability. We then pour the strongest concrete mixes offered. After your concrete has been placed we then seal it with the BEST sealers money can buy!
