WHAT KIND OF CONCRETE DO I NEED?

There are many different types of concrete to choose from. Larger projects like driveways can be labour intensive, while smaller jobs like setting fence posts or mailboxes are relatively easy. We offer a wide range of concrete mix designs ranging from driveways to fence posts.

COMMON APPLICATIONS AND THEIR COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH:

Driveway   32MPa
Garage slab 32MPa
Retaining wall 28MPa
Patio 32MPa
Sidewalk 32MPa
Foundations 20, 25, or 28MPa
Walls 20, 25, or 28MPa

STEP 5

DO I NEED A CONCRETE PUMP?

REASONS YOU MAY NEED A CONCRETE PUMP:

  1. Concrete pumps dramatically cut down on the amount of concrete that’s wasted on site. Concrete pumps will speed up placement and lower labour costs.

  2. Pumps are ideal for pumping concrete in areas with restricted access. When concrete is needed in the back of a house with limited side access and also to reframe channelling directly through your house, the boom would use an articulating robotic arm safely over the roof.

  3. Concrete pumping is a much more modern and efficient way of getting the job done, and it’s also a great deal faster. That frees up your team to work on other tasks while the concrete’s being pumped.

  4. Concrete pumps can be used with any type of concrete we provide, so they’re incredibly versatile.
