How do I ensure a smooth concrete delivery?

 

To ensure that the concrete delivery process runs as smoothly as possible, you should make sure that access to your site is unobstructed so that our delivery truck can access your lay site without issue.

Our concrete delivery trucks require a minimum entry width of 2.7m and have delivery chutes extending up to 3m from the back of the truck and up to 1.2m from the side to straight tip the concrete off.

If you know that our concrete delivery truck will be unable to get that close to the lay site, then you need to arrange alternate ways of transporting the concrete from the truck to your site, for example by wheelbarrow.

Alternatively, we have a range of concrete pumps for hire available to assist with concrete delivery, from our boomless minipump to our 62m boom pump and everything in between. This means that we can provide fast and efficient concrete delivery services to even the most difficult to access construction projects.

The Dangers of DIY Concrete Pouring
11th June 2020

Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world because of its strength and durability; two qualities that also means when something goes wrong in its preparation, it really shows. Pouring concrete requires knowledge, skill and careful planning as well as the right tools and materials for the job, so if you’re considering taking on the challenge yourself, make sure you check out our list of the most common things that can go wrong before you begin. 

Inadequate preparation 

Many DIY concrete pourers think preparing the ground for the concrete simply means excavating the area and clearing any plants and stones. However, this base is not enough to provide a strong concrete foundation that won’t crack, crumble or degrade as the soil settles. The ground needs to be properly levelled and compacted, and building frames. 

The wrong weather conditions 

The weather can have a major impact on the quality of the concrete mix, the pour itself, and can continue to damage the concrete in the hours and days after. When mixing concrete yourself, you’ll also need to consider the area’s general climate as this can affect the long term durability of your concrete and so you will need to make adjustments to your mix. 

Getting the water to cement ratio wrong 

Adding too much water to cement is one of the most common mistakes made by DIY concrete pourers, possibly because the runnier the mixture the easier it is to work with. However, if the concrete mixture is too runny, or indeed too think, it will have problems in its appearance and durability once its set. 

Missing equipment and tools

Dealing with concrete is time sensitive as it will soon start to set once it has been poured so it’s imperative to have all the right tools and equipment you need to hand. If you don’t, then you run the risk of the concrete setting without your control and a potentially lengthy and costly removal process. 

Not taking safety seriously

Perhaps the most significant mistake DIY concrete pourers can make is not taking the health and safety of themselves and others seriously enough. Though concrete is a safe material to work with, it doesn’t come without any hazards and you will need to take appropriate precautions to protect your eyes, ears, and respiratory system and take care when handling heavy objects. 

When to call in the ready mix concrete professionals 

The best way to ensure your concrete pour is successful, and that your concrete is the right mix to last for years and years, is to call in the professionals.  At Wright Minimix, we help ensure your project is a success by supplying the perfect mix of concrete right where you need it. What’s more, when you use our ready mix concrete, you only order what you need, saving you time, money and the risk of having too much concrete that you’ll then have to waste resources on disposing.

How To Successfully Install A Concrete Shed Base
01st June 2020

Whether it’s for storing tools and gardening equipment or to turn into something a little more fun, a shed is a fantastic addition to any garden. So, if you’re looking to add a shed to your outside space, you’ll need to make sure it has a solid foundation to ensure its longevity and durability which is why we’ve put together this quick guide to installing the perfect concrete shed base.

1) Where will your shed go?

The first thing you’ll need to decide for a successful concrete shed base is where you want the structure to go in your garden. If it’s placed too near a wall it will be difficult to apply your wood treatment and finish and it might restrict your access. Don’t forget if it’s too close to a tree or large plant, the roots may affect the stability of the shed base.

2) Preparing the sub base

Once you’ve decided on your perfect location, it’s time to prepare the ground by:

  • Digging the top layer of soil down to at least a 3 inch depth
  • Constructing a wooden framework that runs the perimeter of the shed base and sit approximately 3 inches above garden level
  • Laying around 3 inches of compacted hardcore (brick rubble is also suitable) and if appropriate, compacted sand.

3) Pouring the concrete

Now you have prepared the ground, all you have to do is sit back and relax as the experts at Wright Minimix prepare the perfect concrete mix for you and deliver it straight to your home. By choosing ready mix concrete, you ensure the concrete you use for your shed base is correct, you order the exact amount you need to reduce waste and ensure you only pay for what you need.

What is reinforced concrete?
19th May 2020

Reinforced concrete is concrete that has steel bars embedded within it. The two materials then act harmoniously to absorb the tensile, compressive and shear forces acting upon it.

Why is concrete reinforcement necessary?

Solid concrete has incredibly high compressive strength. This means that it can cope with large amounts of pressure applied to its surface without breaking. In comparison, concrete’s tensile strength is usually less than 10% of its compressive strength, which makes it vulnerable to forces that could pull it apart, like earthquakes, vibrations and high winds. Steel rebar absorbs tensile stress applied to the concrete and significantly increases its ability to withstand it.

How does concrete reinforcement work? 

When embedded within concrete, steel bars, rods or mesh form a strong bond with the mix as it cures to create what is essentially a single structure. The steel is arranged in such a way to ensure maximum effectiveness in overcoming tensile forces, whilst the concrete makes up for the compressive strength that the steel bar lacks.

Do I need reinforced concrete for my project?

One question that we get asked frequently is if they will require a reinforced concrete slab for their project. Generally, reinforced concrete is recommended for all commercial applications. For DIY projects, it depends on both how large the concrete slab will be and its intended use. If you want to erect a small wooden shed, it shouldn’t be necessary, though you may want to consider steel reinforcement for a large driveway to avoid cracking.


We are proud to be your one stop shop for all things concrete in Bristol, South Wales and the surrounding areas. Whether you are working on a commercial contract or a job in the garden, we can deliver quality concrete mixes straight to you on site. We can even arrange steel reinforcement on your behalf as well.
