Purdy Materials has been building poured concrete walls, footings, foundations, basements, slabs, driveways and patios since 1999. Over the years, we have completed concrete jobs ranging from standard residential basements to large, complex commercial projects.
We perform or supervise every aspect of each job from site surveying and excavation to waterproofing and exterior flat work. We provide one estimate and a single point of contact for your entire poured concrete project.
wall teams are experienced and carefully selected based on their field
knowledge, attention to detail and ability to communicate.
Contact us at (765) 532-4974 for an estimate on your poured concrete project.
ESTIMATING Call us to discuss your basement plans or drop off a set of blueprints. We will prepare a comprehensive, easy-to-read estimate with a total price for all materials, labor, equipment and services. If you are in the design phase, we can also provide ideas on how-to value engineer extra cost out of your project.
SITE LAYOUT First we enter your blueprint into a Trimble LM80
Layout Manager and then, using a Robotic Total Station, we layout the area for excavation on your job site. After the basement has been dug and the dirt removed, we return to stake out the footings, pads and thickened footings.
EXCAVATION Our skilled excavating team can handle tight job sites with difficult grades. We pay close attention to utility markers and are careful to minimize landscape disturbances. Prior to digging we calculate the amount of dirt that needs to be hauled away and schedule dump trucks for removal.
FOOTERS The speed and precision of our truck-mounted telescopic belt conveyor, Telebelt, allows accurate placement of concrete inside forms and aggregate outside forms on the same day. The conveyorâ€™s smooth â€œsurge-freeâ€ flow and minimal drop distance result in uniform form loading.
WALLS We use aluminum wall forming systems from Western Forms for straight, clean walls with faster panel assembly and disassembly. All panels are designed to minimize deflection and concrete buildup. For large walls, we use Big Panels from BEP Forming Systems. Forms are set with a lightweight crane.
WATERPROOFING We use a two-part waterproofing system consisting of a seamless membrane that seals out leaks and seepage from basement walls and an insulating foundation board on the outside that reduces condensation. The waterproofing manufacturer provides a 20-year transferable performance warranty.
FLATWORK We employee an experienced flatwork team to finish interior and exterior slabs, garage floors, driveways, sidewalks and patios. Our crews use a walk-behind Copperhead XD to screed concrete to laser tolerances. With the Copperhead, grade control is continuous, automatic and precise.
BACKFILL After the utilities, drainage tile and the waterproofing system have been installed, then the last step is to ensure positive drainage away from the foundation during backfill and final grade of the house.
