What is Quikrete and how do you use it?
29th September 2021

Quikrete is an all-purpose, do-it-yourself fast setting concrete, perfect for consumers trying to save money, time and energy on concrete work or repairs.

Selling itself as ‘easy to make and apply with just one set of hands’, this concrete mix attempts to take the power away from contractors and heavy machinery, and put it in the hands of the homeowner.

For example, the passing of the seasons often leaves its marks on concrete structures, with fluctuating temperatures causing expansion, retraction and as a result, cracking.

Quikrete allows just one person with a paintbrush to remedy the issue, with little to no hassle. You can even give other worn out areas a brush up, replenishing that newly laid look.

How do you use Quikrete?

Using Quikrete is much easier for the individual than working with traditional concrete. While most concrete is incredibly tough to mix, especially without the expertise or machinery, Quikrete have a simple to follow formula that will have your projects roaring along in no time.

As a general rule, mix one part water with five parts mix, and you’ll have perfect Quikrete – it may take some experimentation, but once it has a consistency like that of modelling clay, you’ll know it’s ready to go.

Quikrete vs Ready Mix Concrete

Ready mix is the go-to for many people working on concrete projects. Mixed by professionals and delivered to site, it takes away both the need to hand mix and the pressure of getting your mix absolutely spot on.

As well as being vastly experienced in the trade, professionals have access to industry machinery that will always produce a higher standard of concrete than achievable at home.

Professional services can listen to your needs and specifications, and hours later have the exact concrete mix you needed for your project. So why use an alternative like Quikrete?

When buying ready mix, you get what you pay for – professional concrete for professional prices, with all the equipment that comes with it.

When it comes to smaller projects, Quikrete will do a proficient job – without the need to spend big, or stress over getting heavy machinery onto your property. In addition, Quikrete makes touching up cracks or worn out spots incredibly easy.

However, for larger projects and that professional finish – there is no substitute for industry experience.

Why Build a Concrete House?
17th June 2021

Concrete – it’s a grey, dull substance. But it can make beautiful homes. Chosen for its durability, versatility, and easy transport to site, concrete is a popular choice for people looking to build or extend their home. 

But this time, we’re not talking about the concrete blocks that are commonly used to construct properties and housing estates. 

Poured and precast concrete is one of the most popular new ways to build a house, with more people saying goodbye to concrete blocks, and opting for the angled lines and soft curves of concrete-filled custom-made moulds. 

Additives are usually added to the standard concrete mix to give it more favourable properties. Thanks to the reinforced mix, concrete houses are more energy efficient, more insect and mould resistant, and more disaster resistant than houses made from standard building materials. 

The fact that concrete houses are more expensive doesn’t put people off. That’s because properties made from concrete are more cost-effective in the long run – think lower energy bills, and less maintenance and upkeep. 

Combined with industrial-esque glass and steel, concrete is the perfect choice for people that not only want to make a statement, but for people who want to be more environmentally friendly when it comes to heating, and constructing their home. 

Wright Minimix provides concrete pumping services

It goes without saying that if you’re going to build a property made entirely from concrete, you’ll need a concrete pump. At Wright Minimix, we have six concrete pumps available, meaning we can service all scales of concrete pumping. 

If you’re looking to contract a concrete pumping company, get in touch with Wright Minimix team. They’ll be able to advise you on the concrete mix and pump required to complete the project and provide a fast and reliable concrete pumping service. Give the team a call on 0117 958 2090.

Bricks vs solid concrete blocks: which is better?
31st March 2021

There are several main differences between clay bricks and concrete blocks, in terms of composition and usage. As a building material, they should be carefully selected according to the type of project and the intended use of the building. We break down the benefits of each.

The differences between bricks and solid concrete blocks

Bricks and concrete blocks are made from different raw materials, meaning they have different structural compositions. Brick is made up of sand, lime and concrete materials, while concrete blocks are produced from aggregate consisting of crushed sand or stone. 

Concrete blocks have a much higher water resistance than bricks, and their compressive strength is higher. Concrete has a shorter life than brick, though it still gives efficient results for up to 100 years. It is also incredible durable and can be painted more easily than brick, which secretes metallic salts that can cause paint to peel off. 

One of the main advantages of solid concrete blocks is that they offer outstanding fire resistance and the very highest fire safety rating. They're often favoured for their thermal efficiency and sound insulation. 

Which is better?

There is no simple answer to this, as it depends on the nature of your project and the intended use of the building. If sound insulation, fire resistance and thermal efficiency are priorities, then solid concrete blocks could be the right choice for your construction project. It's also worth noting that concrete blocks can be painted easier than brick can, giving you more flexibility in terms of design options and finishes. 

About our solid concrete blocks

We supply high-strength 100mm 7.3N solid concrete blocks for use in cavity and solid walls, load-bearing and solid partitions, columns and block and beam flooring. 

Our concrete blocks have a tolerance of D1, a mean compressive strength of 3.6 - 30N/mm2 (unit strength) and a shear bond strength of 0.15N/mm2 (tabulated value). Available in packs of 88, they are available for delivery or collection from our concrete plant in Avonmouth, where they are manufactured.

Concrete pumping: what you need to know
16th February 2021

Our concrete specialists break down everything you need to know about concrete pumping and how to calculate the volume of concrete your project will need.

What is a concrete pump?

A concrete pump is a machine used for transferring wet ready mix concrete or liquid screen to the lay site. The two types of concrete pump are boom pumps and boomless pumps. 

Boom pumps use a robotic arm to accurately deliver ready mix concrete and screed. Their ability to pump large volumes of concrete quickly makes them a popular choice for large construction sites. Boomless pumps lack the robotic arm. Instead, they transfer concrete via pipes that are laid between the vehicle and the lay site. Our boomless minipump is designed to deliver liquid concrete over 100m vertically as well as 200m horizontally.  

How much concrete will you need?

If you’re unsure how much concrete you’ll need for your construction project, our handy volume calculator will help. Simply enter the dimensions of the area that requires concreting to calculate the volume of concrete you’ll need for the job. 

Why choose Wright Minimix?

We have the very best machinery at hand, including the UK’s largest concrete pump and the innovative mini pump, which is ideal for delivering concrete to sites with accessibility issues. 

Our highly experienced and qualified team of concrete contractors can provide a fully comprehensive service to both commercial and residential projects. We are fully equipped with a fleet of the best concrete pumps, capable of delivering concrete to projects of all sizes. We take great pride in the level of service we offer, and we’ve worked with many happy clients over the years.
