When it comes to concrete for residential projects, it's typically a much smaller scale than commercial concrete projects. This means that the concrete needs are different, since you may only need a concrete driveway or patio poured as opposed to a large-scale parking lot or concrete foundation needed in commercial construction. Residential concrete often requires more attention to detail and precision because the concrete will be a visible part of your outdoor space.

Time Frame

Another big difference between residential and commercial concrete projects is the time frame for completion. When it comes to residential concrete, we usually have more flexibility when it comes to scheduling since there are fewer people involved in the project overall. However, commercial concrete projects often involve many different entities such as architects, engineers, and builders, which means that timelines are usually much more structured and concrete must be poured in a timely manner to ensure the success of the project.

Lastly, the cost is another important factor when it comes to concrete projects. Residential concrete projects can generally be done at a lower cost because they typically don't involve as many people or materials. However, commercial concrete projects are often more expensive due to the larger scale of work and additional resources needed to complete the project successfully.
