Concrete Curb and Gutter
Concrete Curb and Gutter
A concrete curb and gutter is a pavement curb and roadway gutter cast together in one piece. They are mainly installed at the perimeter of a road or parking lot. The main purpose of a concrete curb and gutter is to define the edges of a lot, holding the pavement in place and serving as a “termination” to prevent the pavement from expanding and deteriorating. In some cases, concrete curbs may also serve as barriers to prevent vehicles from running off the roadway.
Curb and gutters are also used to engineer drainage patterns in parking lots and roads. It’s crucial for any business to have a parking lot that drains properly, so employing the right asphalt and concrete contractor will ensure that your visitors don’t have trouble getting back to their cars.
