See What Some Of Our Specialty Work Looks Like
Sometimes a few pictures tell the story better than a lot of words that may seem like hype. Recently Balkan performed a sewer replacement in Brooklyn that required excavating in a slate sidewalk. The slate had to be carefully removed and placed in a safe place. At the conclusion of the work all excavations had to be back-filled and compacted properly to prevent against any settlement. After proper compaction a concrete base was installed so the slate was properly supported. Then our skilled cement crew was called in the carefully place the slate in place,just like putting a puzzle back together again. Lastly the slate was grouted around all the edges to prevent and water entering the joints and freezing the slate in the winter time. If water froze in the joints the slates would pop out or crack – When you hire Balkan all details are attended to.
