Concrete sidewalks that are made to last.
A concrete sidewalk may look simple in design, but the construction of it is anything but. The gradient must be perfectly level, and drainage is key to avoid foundational cracks and concrete wear. That’s why local business and homeowners trust Parker Concrete. As a concrete contractor in Portland we’ve been constructing sidewalks, curbs, and gutters for over 30 years. We build sidewalks that stand up to the harsh weather of the Northwest. Do yours?
More than just a concrete sidewalk.
Sidewalks are anything but ordinary. They add to a building. The right sidewalk is the beginning of the visitor experience. A walkway suits the building it surrounds. A sidewalk, curb, and gutter may be decorated, patterned, colored, or plain. Depending on the curb style, sidewalks can be used for landscaping, division, protection, and additional applications. When a curb and gutter contractor is called for in Portland, Parker Concrete is the name home and business owners trust for quality and precision curbs.
We’re your local curb contractor.
Local matters when you’re choosing a curb contractor. Depending on the type of building, intended use, and zoning, laws regarding curbs can be radically different. ADA accessible curbs must meet strict guidelines, and the last thing you want to do is have a sidewalk and curb poured or laid only to face a fine and tear-up. As specialists, we can even demolish and remove your old and broken sidewalks and curbs.
We’ve been in operation for over 30 years. That’s more than 3 decades of experience working with city, county, and federal codes and regulations. We operate in accordance with these so that our curbs meet regulated requirements and your needs as a customer.
Concrete Curbing for Homes and Businesses
Concrete curbing can be used for a variety of different purposes. Just some of the ways you can improve your property with a concrete curb and gutter system include:
- Control the flow of run-off water. Run-off can damage parking lots, sidewalks, driveways, landscaping, and gardens. Carefully placed curbs effectively channel water away from these areas. These don’t have to be ugly. Decorative concrete adds to your curb appeal. This also helps prevent erosion and foundational damage. That makes curbs a small investment that can protect a much a larger one.
- Divide an area and route traffic. Whether it’s next to a busy street or a placid garden, curbs are a great way to route traffic. They can easily be used to divide an area and help you funnel foot and road traffic to specific areas. Curbs also provide simple protection for signs, islands, and other areas from auto and bicycle traffic. We excavate the area before laying gorgeous flatwork and can also pour new streets or parking areas as well.
- Restore protection with curb repairs. Damaged concrete sidewalks and curbs can violate fire and safety regulatory codes. These can lead to major fines that far exceed the cost of repairs. We provide fast, efficient, and affordable curb repairs and replacements that put you safely back within regulations. Because we own our own equipment you won’t be charged for rentals. You can also be sure our technicians are experienced with safe and effective equipment operation.
Portland road channelization the right way.
Road channelization is rarely cut and dried. It requires an in-depth understanding of state highway, city, and county road regulations. We install lane markings, raised markings, curb islands, and traffic curbing. These can be painted to meet city needs as well. When concrete removal and concrete curb cutting is required we do it quickly and precisely. This reduces the amount of new concrete that must be poured and the job-time as well.
