Concrete Mixes

 

All of our concrete mixes are largely composed of water, aggregates and cement mixed together; however, different additives can serve to enhance certain features. For example, concrete mixes can be modified to achieve additional strength, workability or to reduce setting time, along with other desirable traits.

We understand that every concreting project is different, so all our concrete mixes are made to deliver to your bespoke specifications. To discuss your concrete mix requirements with us, don’t hesitate to contact us on 0117 9582090.

Key benefits of our concrete mixes

 

Our concrete mixes are made for delivery from a central plant, with each batch made to the client's bespoke specifications.

Here are the key benefits of choosing our concrete mixes for your project:

When you use our concrete mixes, you only pay for what you use, cutting your costs when compared with mixing your own concrete. It also means that you don't need to pay for a mixer on site to mix your cement for you.

We deliver direct to you on site, so there's no need to invest in proper concrete storage either, which will also save you money on your project.

You can feel confident that you will receive a high-quality concrete product by using our concrete mixes. We work to highly maintained governing standards and use efficient plant mixing methods to ensure consistent concrete quality at all times.

You may be surprised to know that our concret emixes are eco-friendly! The core ingredients of concrete are cement, water and aggregate, and these are all in abundant supply and don’t have as great an impact on the environment when they are extracted.

As all batches of concrete mix are custom made, there is little or no wastage and any surplus materials can be easily reclaimed and refurbished back to their natural condition with leftover concrete mixes being readily reused or recycled.

We are the right people for you – let’s work together!

Why choose liquid screed flooring?
15th January 2018

Unlike ready mix concrete, which can be used in a range of construction projects, such as foundations, driveways and pathways, the flowability of liquid screed limits its uses to internal flooring. However, what it does, it does well and is the perfect go-to solution for providing a smooth and even flooring finish for both DIY and commercial projects alike.

Maximise underfloor heating

Liquid screed flooring is the best way to get the most out of your underfloor heating system, as the flowability of liquid screed means that it wraps around pipework totally, leaving no air gaps and therefore maximising conductivity throughout your floor. A more effective under floor heating system means that you won’t have to spend so much on your heating bills, saving you money in the long-term.

Quicker to dry

Its liquid properties, as well as the lay depth required for liquid screed flooring being less than in more traditional sand and cement screed, means that it has a faster drying time. This makes it invaluable for projects on a restrictive time allowance, and allows for light foot traffic within 24-48 hours. However, the time before it is fully dry will vary depending on the size and depth of the project. We can give you a clearer answer once we know the details of your project.

Even finish

There’s no need to worry about uneven flooring when you use our Wrightflow Liquid Screed, as it is self-evening and mixed to be resistant to curling and cracking. There’s also no need to seal your floor prior to laying the latex, speeding up the process.


Our Wrightflow Liquid Screed has been tailor made by us to ensure maximum durability and effective heat insulation in your flooring. To find out more about our liqud screedcontact us on 0117 9582090.

Unusual ideas for DIY concrete
11th December 2017

Our team of concrete specialists are experienced in delivering DIY concrete and screed for projects both big and small, straight to your door. You may think that concrete isn’t the most exciting or versatile material when considering a DIY project, but we’re here to change those perceptions and get you inspired with some more unusual ideas to consider for your next DIY project.

Shelving

Why not use some of our ready mix concrete to create some modern shelving? Concrete might not be the first thing you consider when think of shelving materials, but it can be an excellent method that looks great too, both in indoor and outdoor settings. Concrete is an incredibly durable and cost-effective material, which can complement your existing décor and its water-resistant nature makes it great for bathrooms and kitchens.

Decorations

As long as you have a mould, the possibilities when it comes to what you can do with ready mix concrete are endless, which is what makes it such an excellent choice for decorations both in the garden and indoors. You can make modern sculptural pieces such as garden globes, bird baths, plant pots, candle holders, bookends and much more to visually enhance your home.

Benches

There are lots of different ways that you can incorporate ready mix concrete into a stylish garden or annex bench. Concrete makes an excellent sturdy base for a bench and combining concrete blocks with wooden planks and cushions can result in a stylish and comfortable result. If you’re going for something more stripped back, just using ready mix concrete for your garden bench can lend your garden or annex an modern vibe. 


We hope that some of these ideas have inspired you to get inventive with concrete. We can supply you with ready mix concrete straight to your home, regardless of the amount required. For more information on our DIY concrete and screed, contact us on 0117 9582090.

Popular uses for ready mix concrete
04th December 2017

Ready mix concrete is versatile in its uses because it can be enhanced to improve certain attributes, such as added strength or workability. This means that it is a favourite option to use in a range of both DIY and commercial projects, some of which we have listed below.

Roads

Concrete has been used in road surfaces since 1893 and for good reason. Though asphalt is also used for roads, ready mix concrete has advantages in the fact that it is usually more durable and hardy than asphalt and typically require less maintenance due to being less prone to cracking. It is not uncommon for concrete roads to not require maintenance for decades after installation.

Foundations

Our ready mix concrete is an environmentally friendly and economic option for building construction, because it curtails material consumption and storage whilst providing no waste. Any surplus materials can be easily recycled, which makes ready mix concrete an excellent choice in the construction of conservatories, homes and basement conversions.

Driveways

Concrete is a popular choice for driveways due to a lot of the same reasons as roads, namely that it is durable, a good weight-bearer and requires little to no maintenance once installed. As such, though the price is usually higher to install ready mix concrete, these costs are usually negated by the lack of money needed to maintain it. Though ready mix concrete is naturally grey colour in colour, it can also be coloured different hues and shades, so it can be a decorative as well as sturdy option for driveways.

What are the Benefits of Ready Mix Concrete?
03rd November 2017

Ready mix concrete is pre-mixed to suit client requirements and can offer many benefits to your construction project. We discuss the advantages and how the use of ready mix concrete can save you time and money.

Quality Controlled

As ready mix concrete is made to specification and adheres to strict regulations within a mixing plant, you can remain assured that the concrete you are supplied with is of approved and consistent quality. Computerised systems ensure that the correct mixing ratios are met far more accurately than you can mixing by hand.

Time Efficient

Hand mixing concrete takes a lot of time and effort. This is time you could be spent doing other, more productive tasks. The delivery of ready mix concrete to your site cuts down labour hours, especially for larger commercial projects, and is often more economic than paying a workforce to mix concrete by hand. By using concrete pumps and a range of delivery vehicles, ready mix concrete can be delivered to lay sites efficiently and without the unnecessary time and effort.

More Environmentally Friendly

Due to more efficient mixing methods, cement and waste production are kept to a minimum. This is beneficial for the environment, as the production of ready mix concrete at a plant uses less resources and energy. It also reduces dust pollution, as bulk cement is used rather than bagged.

Versatile

Finally, just because you aren’t mixing it yourself, doesn’t mean you lose the flexibility of choosing your concrete mix. Each order of ready mix concrete is different and specifically tailored to suit each client’s individual requirements. The use of ready mix concrete delivered to your site simply assures that your concrete mix is of only the best professional quality.
