Using Ready-Mix Concrete


Ready-mix concrete is such a popular construction material because of the fact that it is used in so many applications. If you look at modern buildings, areas of motorways or roads, they more than likely feature ready-mix concrete in their construction. It’s not just coincidence or convenience that makes ready-mix concrete so popular, there are a variety of benefits that make ready-mix concrete the superior building material:


  • Bespoke mixes are available which can be completely changed to suit project requirements. This ensures that ready-mix concrete is a bespoke material that can be tailored to many different projects and this is one of the principal reasons as to why you will see it in so many projects.

  • Ready-mix concrete is extremely strong which again makes it ideally suited for a broad range of projects. Concrete also offers load-bearing capacity – which ensures that concrete is ideally suited for roadworks and other structures such as bridges. This extends the use of concrete to domestic projects such as garden shed bases where heavier equipment is being stored and concrete driveways.

  • Environmental resistance is also a key property of ready-mix concrete as the resulting structure will be able to resist elemental damage. Finishes can be applied in certain cases to increase resistances to rarer environmental issues such as acid rain. Generally speaking, agents are added to the mix to reduce cracking and damage from frost. Concrete is also naturally highly resistant to rain and wear and tear and can also be repaired should accidental significant damage occur.
