I have worked on all sorts of concrete projects, from small residential projects to large commercial projects. I have also been teaching concrete construction classes for the last 5 years.

How I Got Started in Concrete

My journey into concrete started when I was working on my undergraduate degree in civil engineering. I was looking for a summer job and Ernst Concrete happened to be hiring. I interviewed with the company and was offered the job. I started working as a laborer and worked my way up to foreman, superintendent, and project manager. I have been working in the concrete industry ever since.

Why I Chose to Start a Blog

In the past, I have written articles for trade magazines and construction publications. But I have never tried blogging before. I decided to start a blog because I wanted to share my knowledge and experience with others. 

I also wanted to provide a one-stop resource for all things concrete. I realize that not everyone is familiar with concrete and cement, so I want to provide the basics of these materials and also discuss some of the more advanced topics that are specific to concrete construction.

My Experience And Expertise

Over two decades of experience in the concrete industry, including experience in all aspects of concrete construction from laborer to project manager.

  • 5 years of experience teaching concrete construction classes.
  • Specialize in residential and commercial projects.
  • Hold a degree in civil engineering from the University of Houston.
  • Member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA).

I am confident that I can provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your next concrete project.

How I Want To Help You

My goal is to help you avoid the mistakes that I have made over the years. I want to provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions about your concrete project. 

I also want to help you save time and money on your next concrete project. In many cases, I have found that contractors do not understand the full scope of a project and they end up costing themselves money by making mistakes. 

I also want to help you learn from the experiences of others. I have been fortunate enough to work on some great projects over the years, and I want to share my experiences with you.

I hope that you find this blog helpful and informative. I welcome your feedback and questions, so please feel free to contact me at any time.

Thank you,

Walter Johnson
