North Dallas Concrete is now building 10’ x 10’ x 8′ tall concrete storm shelters completely under ground. We excavate a 16’ x 20’ x 11′ deep hole in your back yard.
After pouring 10″ footings we set up wooden forms for all the walls and stairs. All walls are 8″ thick and 1/2 rebar 12″ on center is used.
We install a drainage system with a pump and use a water tight membrane to keep the room dry. The ceiling and floor is poured at the end and #4 steel for the ceiling is used 6″ on center.
We have 4″ ventilation pipes, an opening for a A/C and heating unit, and a sleeve designated for electrical power.
Options available: buildblock …styrofoam construction, interior finish out, generator back up system and an upgraded design to withstand explosions on top of load ratings.
Prices start at $18,995.00.

Concrete counter tops are the new trend. They look great indoors as they do outdoors as part of an outdoor kitchen or living environment. We usually pour counter tops 2-3″ thick depending on individual choice or specifications.
It makes sense to use plenty of steel in the right places to give your counter strength.
TX-Dot mesh is a good choice combined with #3 steel on corners and cut outs.
We also add fiber and water reducers, so that the counter will end up strong and dense.
