Orange Beach/Gulf Shores Fishing - lsuchip30
Headed to Orange Beach last week of July. Plan on fishing while we are there - haven’t fished that area in years on my own. Been on a few charters out of there in years past but never really fished there on my own. Anyone have any recommendations on places to go and what bait or setup to use? I was ...

re: Concrete Saw - lsuchip30
If you’ve never operated a concrete saw, then I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing - and if you want a straight cut to the proper depth to accommodate clean tear out and removal of concrete - once again, I’d let a professional do it. It can get away from you p...

re: Driveway reinforcement: just fiber, just mesh, or both - lsuchip30
It’s gonna crack no matter what - fiber/wire will help the tensile strength. Compressive strength will come from the concrete mix. A typical 4” thick cast in place concrete pour will crack every 10’. You can place keyway in it or sawcut/tool joint at intervals to reduce cracking - but neither wire n...

re: Demo Concrete in Back Yard - lsuchip30
You are probably talking 2-4 cubic yards of concrete - anywhere from 8,000 to 16,000 lbs (or possibly more) of material that has to be broken up then hauled off. That’s at least one roll off dumpster worth - which is about $400 right there just for the roll off. Those can only be filled about halfwa...

re: New concrete driveway question - lsuchip30
Mallard Master beat me to it. It’s still curing. It’ll whiten out once it gets more sunlight. Not a thing wrong with that driveway. Finish actually looks pretty darn good from the two pictures....

re: 1-acre lots within a subdivision in Ascension - lsuchip30
There are larger lots in that particular subdivision - probably will cost more, though. There are also a couple of homes in there with rear load garages and a couple of J-swings. As far as Corbin Ladner goes - he builds a fine freaking house. Has great subs and an exceptional attention to details. H...

re: would you accept this concrete driveway - lsuchip30
Concrete cracks - all of it. It’ll all eventually crack. Subs will blame the concrete - concrete company will blame the subs. The GC won’t know who to blame. And - as someone said earlier - fly ash is a good substance - it Will slow down the initial cure time - which needs to happen in this type of ...

re: Driveway Replacement- Fair price? - UPDATED - lsuchip30
I did one for over 20k about 5 years ago. Complete tear out of about 1500 square feet then pour back with about 1000 square feet added in patio and sidewalks. The ground was littered with tree roots that all had to be excavated - came back in with fresh dirt to fill the holes, compacted it, then lai...

re: Driveway Replacement- Fair price? - UPDATED - lsuchip30
Any pricing is gonna depend on ground conditions first and foremost. Grass/sod, tree/plant roots, wet/sloppy dirt/mud, etc should all be removed prior to doing anything else. I never quoted a job over the phone without looking at the job first. If you are looking for a budget type number - in the BR...

re: Driveway Replacement- Fair price? - UPDATED - lsuchip30
The prep is just as important as the pour itself. I’d always lean towards telling someone to let a pro handle it. Will it cost you more money in the short term? Yes. Can it cost you more in the long term if done incorrectly? Absolutely. There are plenty of reputable concrete contractors in the BR ar...

re: Driveway Replacement- Fair price? - UPDATED - lsuchip30
I worked for a concrete contractor for 12 years - I’m now a concrete salesman in BR for the last 3.5 years. For 4” thick, 4000psi with removal - all fiber, doweling, keyway, etc - should be a minimum of $7 per square foot - probably more like $7.50 - I charged that more than 3 years ago and was comp...
