5 Benefits of Mix On Site Concrete
Whether you are a DIY expert laying a driveway at the front of your house, or a construction team floating a floor slab, mix on site concrete is an option to consider. Our customers at Custom Concrete use us again and again because they get exactly the volume they need, mixed to the specifications they require. There are plenty of other advantages to having fresh concrete mixed on site, though. In this blog we list the top 5 benefits.
1. Bang On Budget
The construction sector hates waste, because it reduces their profit margin. Mix on site concrete provides you with the control you need to eliminate waste. Custom Concrete ensures that you get exactly the amount of concrete you need. There isn’t any waste, so you pay only for what you use. Better still, there’s no unused concrete to dispose of.
2. Volumetric Trucks for Tailored Consistency
Mix on site concrete is delivered by our fleet of modern volumetric concrete trucks. The ingredients that make up your concrete are kept separate until the mix begins on site. You are able to determine the exact consistency required. Custom Concrete can accommodate last minute changes, as the mixing only begins once we arrive at the job.
3. Fresh Concrete for Pouring
All our customers agree that fresh concrete is preferable for pouring. Mix on site concrete provides a steady stream of freshly mixed concrete. There is no danger of concrete going off due to traffic delays. Instead, your concrete is mixed fresh as and when you need it. If there is a hold up on site, it’s not a problem. We simply put the mix on hold until you are ready for it.
4. Simple to Scale
Custom Concrete volumetric trucks can carry up to 8.5 cubic metres per load. This means that we can service large construction sites. If, however, you require a much smaller volume of concrete for a residential project, we can easily scale down. Mixing concrete on site means that we can provide top quality concrete for a variety of customers, without accumulating waste.
5. Pump Hire
The focus of the Custom Concrete operation is upon creating the optimum product in the place it is needed. In order to facilitate this, we provide pump hire to ensure that our concrete is transported efficiently on site. Our offering comprises a line pump with a 4″ pipe that pumps concrete directly into your footing or slab. Or a boom pump that reaches over obstacles to precision place concrete.
