Forest Lake Concrete – Residential
Concrete is perfect for driveways, patios, steps, fire pits, garage floors and more in Forest Lake. You can choose traditional grey concrete or jazz things 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 require minimal maintenance? Blacktop (asphalt), on the other hand, requires more maintenance and major repairs or replacement can be required within 10 years of installation!

Due to the construction of St. Paul and Duluth railroad, people became attracted to settle in the area of what is now Forest Lake. As the name suggests, the city got its name from the rich timber deposits that grew near the river. While the railroad was completed in 1869 it was not until March 11, 1874, that Forest Lake got its township. In its early days, there was a huge demand for summer homes, which contributed, largely to the economy of the fledgling settlement and its surrounding areas. Over time, commercial endeavors were established and with it the development of schools, parks, and other facilities. When cabin owners began converting summer residences into year-round homes, the city evolved and the population went up. This surge was felt through the 1970s up to the 1990s when finally the township was incorporated into city status.
