Popular uses for ready mix concrete
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.
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.
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.
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.
