Extruded curb is the most common type of curb which uses a dry concrete mixture allowing for immediate finishing. It is placed with a mechanized extruded curbing machine. When removing the old, damaged curb, we will saw-cut the endpoints (typically at the expansion joint) to provide a sharp-looking and structurally-sound edge.
What kind of cement mix is used for extruded curbing? How is this different from other cements?

Yes, extruded curbing should be placed on a solid base, either asphalt or concrete. It should not be placed directly on top of dirt.
