Starting a new project requires thought and desired action. Before you know it, your vision is brought to life and you can begin to enjoy your creative additions.

Idea, vision, and design. What is your idea behind these concrete additions, do they provide aesthetic appeal or functionality? If you are having a hard time figuring out the logistics or design of your project, bring it back to basics.


Everything begins with a thought, the catalyst idea to expand or enhance architectural features. If you are unclear of what you would like, research! Inspiration can come from anyplace at anytime. This can include home improvement magazines, television programs, the internet and even your neighbours.


The best thing to do is to sketch and create a blueprint of your potential project. How does your vision look, what elements would you like to design, will these additions fit with the metrics of its placement? These are all important questions you need to ask yourself before you dive into any new concrete project.


Design elements can fall into the vision category. Sketching out your vision allows you to play with different concepts, elements you would like to showcase and additional design features. This is the exciting portion of your project.

Once you have a foundation of knowledge guiding you toward your construction goal the next step is to figure out any legalities that come with property additions.

A permit is basically the green light to go ahead with your concrete project or any project within the guidelines of your city. Ask your city to ensure that your project will comply with municipal building regulations. There may be some paperwork involved, which seems irritating at first, but it will be worth it in the end. Paperwork is easy to ignore (out of site out of mind) however, just imagine starting and not being able to finish due to regulations therefore wasting time, money, and a large mess to clean up afterward. It may even cost you more if authorities decide to give you a fine, so be on the safe side and ask. It is also advisable to ask about your environment. Be aware of your surroundings, if your project requires any digging, the zoning area must be inspected, it is excruciatingly important and unavoidable. Your foundation in which your project will take place may have underground utilities which can impact your project, health, and safety. Therefore, in addition to asking the city for permits it is best to consult the urban/city planner as well.
