    Foundations

    Cascade Cement Contracting is capable of installing anything from a 3 foot frost wall up to walls well over 20 feet in height. We specialize in complicated designs using our Total Station layout system which allows us to place the concrete to the exact specifications called for on the blueprints. The Total Station equipment also allows us to place the anchor bolts required for the steel column and steel plate installation with precise accuracy.

    Flatwork

    Cascade Cement Contracting is a leader in placing concrete flatwork using our vast experience achieved through projects ranging in size up to 320,000+ square feet. We implement the concrete pump trucks and conveyors we own to get the concrete to the proper location and then use one of our two Somero Laser Screeds to make sure we achieve the proper concrete flatness and levelness called for in the specifications.

    Concrete Paving & Sitework

    Cascade Cement specializes in massive concrete paving in excess of 400,000 square feet in size thus far. We own the equipment necessary to install massive amounts of concrete each day. We use a Vibrastrike and a bridge screed to accomplish these large pours. The Cascade Cement employees have a vast amount of experience in the installation of concrete sidewalks, curb & gutter, and equipment pads as well.

    Concrete Pumping

    Cascade Cement owns 7 concrete pump trucks ranging from 28 meters to 46 meters in size. We also own two Somero laser screeds and 2 conveyors which are 80 and 100 meters in length. The pump trucks, conveyors, and laser screeds are available for rental to assist with your concrete installation needs. Your rental includes the provision of an experienced operator for each of these pieces of equipment. Please call Greg at 616-291-1825 to schedule our equipment to assist with your installation needs.

    Concrete Polishing

    Cascade Cement Contracting has recently expanded its services to include custom concrete polishing. We can install any type of finish you desire ranging from the “salt & pepper” to the “exposed aggregate” look. We offer concrete staining in conjunction with our polishing offerings. There is a vast array of concrete stain colors to choose from which will enhance the look of your polished concrete floors. These floors are slip-resistant and require very little maintenance to keep their finished look. We have a wide range of polished concrete samples at our office to assist you with your polished concrete selections. Please call Greg at 616-291-1825 to schedule a visit to look at our samples and to obtain a proposal for your individual project.

    Our Partners

    Working with Cascade was not only one of my more enjoyable moments of this project, but also my whole career with OAK. Your expertise of your trade is to be credited. It is nice to have a contractor who I can place full trust into the work being done right the first time without me standing over their shoulder. If it was possible for me to select my concrete contractor for every job I managed, it would be Cascade Cement!

    Cascade was always on schedule, and most times ahead. That made my job easier, and I am looking forward to our next project together. Keep up the great work.

    Elzinga & Volkers would like to express our gratitude for all the help that you and your team have provided on the 588 E Lakewood project. This is a very demanding project with a schedule that could rival the best of them, but your company stepped up to the plate and treated it with the sense of urgency that it needed to have. We are extremely thankful that you were a part of our team for this project.

    Any contractor should feel lucky to have a company like yours on their project. We look forward to working with you in the future.
