Driveway, Patio and Sidewalk

After the brick and stonework is complete, work on the driveway, patio and sidewalk begins. Just as the concrete for the basement included, cement manufactured by the Monarch Cement Company and fly ash, so will the concrete for the driveway, patio and sidewalk. As before Monarch cement was selected because the plant location in Southeast Kansas allows it to qualify as a locally produced product.
