Your curbing experience is sure to be a pleasant one!
To provide the product with room to flex as the ambient temperature changes, control joints are installed every 3 to 4 feet. This allows the Curb Concepts to crack in a controlled way when ground movement etc. stresses it. A minimum of one part cement to four parts aggregate is used in the concrete mix. Fibre mesh is added for strength, and a chemical is added to give resilience in frost. This provides a consistently high strength concrete curb. Most Kwik Kerb is also over-layed with a special, very strong colour mixture which makes the surface of your concrete edging very resistant to scratching, chipping and weathering. Kwik Kerb also has a special sealer applied to the surface of the concrete after it is installed. This sealer adds much strength by slowing hydration, and protects your concrete edging from stains, reduces fading and makes the surface of your curb very easy to keep clean by simply hosing off.
Kwik Kerb needs little maintenance, but some precautions are important after installation. It is very important not to wet the new curbing too much for the first few days after installation, so be sure to have your sprinklers temporarily disabled. Don’t allow metal objects like steel rakes and garden spades etc. to come in contact with the new concrete edging (concrete takes approx. 28 days to reach full strength). Take care when mowing your grass and doing edging that contact is not made with metal blades. Don’t drive vehicles over landscape curbing as this may crack the Kwik Kerb in places away from the control joints. With common sense your Kwik Kerb can retain its beauty and elegance for many years to come. We suggest that a recoat of sealer every two to three years will help retain Kwik Kerb’s unique properties.
As with all concrete creations, small imperfections can occur which are beyond the ability of anybody to control. If you have any questions regarding repairs to damages, please contact us and we will be only too glad to offer some advice.
