Concrete installations, from driveways, curbs, to foundations, require concrete forming. A concrete form is a temporary or permanent mold used to hold poured concrete in place while it sets. With concrete forming the concrete fills the void and becomes that desired shape. This versatility is why concrete is one of the most commonly used building materials out there.

Why is concrete forming necessary?
You can’t install concrete with a concrete form. A mold needs to be in place to ensure the concrete fills the space and creates the final shape. Without forming, manipulating the concrete into your design will be impossible. It will slow out of the designated area, leak out everywhere, and make a huge mess. You need a concrete forming system to hold that semi-solid concrete in place until it can set properly.
