Oly Mattera Construction is your one-stop shop for all your concrete flatwork construction needs. No matter if your project is a small concrete slab, a basketball court, a patio or a large residential or commercial structure; we can handle it from start to finish. We are using high quality materials and adhere to all official concrete standards. Our emphasis on quality and proven concrete construction practices results in top-quality projects every time.
■ Concrete Patios
A concrete patio will typically allow for enough space to accommodate the desired amenities. Your concrete patio will provide room for people or whatever furniture or barbeque equipment you may desire. Using concrete will provide a firm foundation for your patios and an appealing, multi-use surface. Our concrete patios are built with high quality materials to ensure that they last a long time. We follow the best practices of concrete preparation and pouring for patios including: proper sub grade building, correctly choosing the concrete mix, placing the joints correctly, properly draining the patio area and correctly curing the concrete.
■ Concrete Basketball Courts
A concrete basketball court is a great way to add family fun to your backyard! Whether it is a full court, half court, or something smaller to fit into your construction area, Oly Mattera Construction is the professional company to get the job done. We take pride in our work and we ensure that the best practices of area preparation and concrete pouring are followed:
Our concrete mix is rated at 4000 psi or greater. A strong concrete mix is important in all exterior concrete flatwork to promote longevity and durability of the concrete slab.
The concrete must be air entrained. Air entrainment keeps the concrete nice throughout the freeze/thaw cycles of our Connecticut cold seasons.
The concrete we recommend is 4 inches thick. 4 inches of concrete is strong and durable. The concrete must be reinforced with rebar laid out at 16 inches intervals each way. Rebar is extremely important in concrete basketball courts. Rebar keeps all the slab sections held together tightly and evenly on the same plane.
The control joints must be used throughout the court area to ensure that the bouncing basketball will bounce straight off.
The concrete should have a smooth trowel finish. A smooth trowel finish is more similar to an indoor court.
The concrete must be sealed. Sealer is important to apply to all exterior concrete.
If you have the basketball hoop hardware, we can install the concrete footing for you as well.
