It was inhabited by 31,247 people during the census of 2000: 11,305 households and 8,490 families lived in Andover at the time.

Higher concrete retaining walls should be designed by a competent construction engineer who will place the steel reinforcing rods to assist the concrete to carry the immense load bearing upon it. Rebar or steel reinforcing bars in size from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inches, is placed. When performing concrete cutting on grades, such as shown in the picture, it is best to start from the lower end; by so doing there is not the possibility of hollow spots developing, as would be the case starting at the up-hill end. A straight line is cut on the top of the side concrete forms, to bring the concrete cutting to the proper level, and later it is finished with a wood float only. Expansion joints of asphalt material should be used every 30 feet and in any case against the curb or sidewalk and at the door-sill of the garage to prevent the cracking of the concrete floor.
The strength, life, and appearance of the concrete driveway depend in a great measure on the curing or hardening of the concrete and the cutting of any expansion joints. After the concrete surface has been finished and has been setting for about four hours, it should be covered with earth about 2 or 3 inches deep, care being taken to use no large stones. This covering should be kept wet for ten days, after which it may be removed and the concrete driveway is then ready for use. Concrete cutting for the wall should be performed in proportions of 1: 2/2: 4, being 1 part reinforced concrete, 23 parts of sand, and 4 parts of stone or gravel, graded in size from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inches. It should be placed in layers of about six inches and well spaded to insure consolidation of aggregates.
Affordable Concrete Cutting provides cutting sawing and core drilling in Andover MA.
When the concrete wall has been poured to the proper height, steel dowels should be placed upon which the precast concrete cap will later be set. A long steel dowel must be set in the corner post in order to anchor the precast urn in place. Concrete forms should not be removed for at least three days, at which time the surface of the concrete cutting may be rubbed with an abrasive stone if it is proposed to apply no decorative coat. This will remove the concrete form marks. On the opposite page a concrete form is shown for making the precast concrete cap; however, better results will probably be obtained if the work is given to the local concrete cutting products manufacturer, who is expert in the making of such things. This precast concrete cap should be made of concrete cutting performed in proportions of 1:2:3, which is 1 part reinforced concrete, 2 parts of sand, and 3 parts of gravel or stone, and reinforced with three steel rods 1/2 inch in diameter, spaced evenly across the base of the cap, one inch up from the base, and running lengthwise.
