Homestead Paving Services
Paving is in our name Since 1973 Homestead Paving has been providing paving services to the South Florida area. We understand the south Florida climate and have pioneered techniques used in the paving industry. We understand it so much that Paving is in our name.
But what is Paving? Well, in its most basic form, a concrete pavement is an extruded slab of concrete made from cement, aggregate, sand, and water and no other company understands this process better than Homestead Paving. We stay on top of the technological curve by studying the advancements in the concrete industry. As concrete technology has advanced over the years, blended cements or the addition of secondary cementitious materials have been used to enhance concrete properties. To handle heavy loads, the use of reinforcing materialsincluding steel and plastic fibershave been introduced to increase both durability and strength. At homestead Paving, we install the specified mix design including the specified chemical admixtures, which can increase production efficiencies and/or impart desirable performance features. Did you know that aggregates are no longer just rock? In South Florida several different aggregates are used including natural stone, man-made materials, or even recycled concrete materials. These are just a few ways concrete pavements have changed over the years and Homestead Paving has been there every step of the way.
These are just a few of the paving sevices we offer:
- Airport Pavement
- Commercial Flat Work
- Highway-Concrete Construction
- Parking lots
And much more! If you need paving… Homestead Paving is your one-Stop-Shop for all your concrete needs
Homestead Paving specializes in Cast-In-Place (CIP) concrete. Cast-in-place concrete is a building construction method where we use locally supplied ready mix concrete that meets the customers mix design parameters. The concrete is delivered directly to the site for placement. The specified Steel reinforcement and formwork are delivered to the construction site by our site management team. This is when our expert placement team begins the fabrication process on location. This also referred to as Site-Work.
Here are just a few of the cast-in-place Site-Work project types that Homestead offers:
- Concrete Walls
- Curbs & Gutters
- Parking Lots
- Stem Walls
Decorative concrete is the use of concrete as an aesthetic enhancement to a structure, while still serving its function as an integral part of the building itself such as floors, walls, driveways, and walkways. At Homestead paving, we offer a variety of specialty and decorative concrete options. Simply put…Homestead Paving is South Florida’s recognized leader in decorative, specialty, and unique concrete solutions. We not only specialize in delivering highly complex decorative concrete designs, but we proudly lead the industry in both safety and quality.

Homestead Paving is the recognized leader in pervious concrete in the southern Florida region. Pervious concrete is an important product for our area, and it is critical that all the proper installation methods are followed in order to deliver a quality long lasting result. We have been delivering quality results in this sector since 2001 and we lead the industry in the successful application and delivery of this amazing system. Our proprietary formulation, installation techniques and substrate preparation methodology is our secret to success in the growing pervious concrete market.
What is Pervious Concrete? Pervious concrete pavement is a unique and effective means to address important environmental issues and support green, sustainable growth. By capturing stormwater and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing stormwater runoff, and meeting U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stormwater regulations. In fact, the use of pervious concrete is among the Best Management Practices (BMPs) recommended by the EPA—and by other agencies and geotechnical engineers across the country—for the management of stormwater runoff on a regional and local basis. This pavement technology creates more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swales, and other stormwater management devices. In doing so, pervious concrete has the ability to lower overall project costs on a first-cost basis.
When installing pervious concrete, Homestead Paving uses carefully controlled amounts of water and cementitious materials to create a paste that forms a thick coating around aggregate particles. What the competition doesn’t know is, a pervious concrete mixture design contains little or no sand, creating a substantial void content. It is critical to use a sufficient amount of paste to coat and bind the aggregate particles together. At Homestead Paving, we have a proprietary formulation and employ our proven installation methodology. Our specific formulation creates a system of highly permeable, interconnected voids that drain quickly. Typically, between 15% and 25% voids are achieved in the hardened concrete. Our design delivers the desired flow rates for water through our pervious concrete that typically land around 480 in./hr (0.34 cm/s, which is 5 gal/ft²/ min or 200 L/m²/min), although they can be much higher. Both the low mortar content and high porosity also reduce strength compared to conventional concrete mixtures, but sufficient strength for many applications is readily achieved. At Homestead Paving, we know that the secret is in the science of substrate preparation. Without the proper structural substrate design the system will not perform as designed. It is our extensive experience and knowledge that makes Homestead Paving the preferred Pervious contractor for the Southern Florida area.
