New Residential Concrete Construction

As concrete specialists, we have everything you need for new building projects or for when you need to keep your existing space more durable. At Douwes Concrete we do everything from house footings, foundations, basement, garage floors, porches and more. Our goal is to provide you with the best service possible. We work with both building contractors and homeowners to provide solid foundations for their dream homes. We also do detached garages and shops.

House Footings

The foundation of a home is one of the most essential parts. The concrete footing on which your house will rest is vital in how sturdy your home will be. Our years of experience will allow us to provide you with the best solution to:

  • Assessment of soil condition
  • Avoid common footing issues
  • Framing the proper depth and width of the footing or pads
  • Correct placement of the footings

Doing so will allow the footing to support the foundation and structure. Douwes Concrete can build or reinforce concrete footings for your residential project or large-scale residential developments.


Building a foundation needs careful consideration and proper preparation at each stage. We will perform complete excavations and prepare the site fully. Our skilled workers can take on a wide range of jobs, from foundations to basement walls and more. All of our client’s homes are reinforced with quality materials by our team of concrete experts.

When you partner with Douwes Construction, you can rest assured that we always follow the local building codes. We understand that when you’re investing in your home, it’s important to know that it will be done right.


In addition to structure, we need to manage one crucial factor when constructing new basements: water. As a concrete contractor, we are in control of driving the construction project ahead, and it’s our reputation on the line if we make a bad decision. Given the realities of moisture in concrete and the importance of managing the moisture conditions, our testing methods will give you peace of mind and the most reliable information to keep you dry and comfortable.

Garage Floors

Douwes Concrete is your go-to professional team for all things garages. When it comes to picking the garage floor for your home, there are many factors you need to consider. Your garage may be exposed to many temperature differences, wear and tear from vehicles, and issues like chemical spills. We will finish your garage with epoxy coatings that will protect your garage floor from these problems and keep it looking new for years to come. We also offer a wide range of services, including exposed aggregate, stamped and smooth finish floors.

Concrete Porch and Steps

Your front porch and steps are one of the first things people see as they drive up to your house and is also often one of the most overlooked areas by homeowners.

Whether you need a brand new concrete porch with steps or terraced stairways, or your current ones torn out and replaced, you can be sure to count on Douwes Concrete.

If you require a contractor who can handle all of your concrete needs from start to finish, look no further than Douwes Concrete. We have a lot of experience on our team to get all the concrete work around your home done properly and efficiently. Send us drawings of your new home for a quote on the foundation and floors.
