Duluth Concrete – Residential
Concrete is perfect for driveways, patios, steps, fire pits, garage floors and more in Duluth. You can choose traditional grey concrete or jazz things up with the addition of color, texture and curves. Either way, choosing concrete for your home adds a touch of class you can take pride in! It is very difficult to tell the difference between decorative concrete and a mason laying stone or brick. Although they look similar, a mason laying stone or brick costs significantly more than concrete.
When you choose concrete for your driveway, patio, etc., you are making a wise investment! Did you know that concrete driveways last as long as 30 years and requires minimal maintenance? Blacktop (asphalt), on the other hand, requires more maintenance and major repairs or replacement can be required within 10 years of installation!
Our concrete products for contractors are consistent from plant to plant and our people are always willing to serve your needs.

History of Duluth, Minnesota
Located on the western side of Lake Superior, the area was originally settled by Chippewa and Sioux Indians. At the time only French fur traders and explorers were able to see the actual site of Duluth. By 1856, with many settlers already and a burgeoning fur trade, Duluth was platted and incorporation into a city occurred in 1878. After the civil war, the town prospered due to the establishment of the Great Northern Railroad. When iron ore was discovered in the Mesabi Range, it became the city’s top selling product. The city got its name in honor of Daniel Greysolon, Sieur du Lhut, a French adventurer.
