Wondering what kind of concrete to use for your DIY project? You may be thinking that your only choice is to mix it yourself, if it is just a small amount. The good news is that an alternative exists; Custom Concrete delivers concrete and mixes it fresh on site for you, exactly where you need it.
Whether you want to lay a patio, put up a fence or create a base for a shed, mix on site concrete is a great solution. It gets delivered to your site, and the concrete is freshly mixed to your requirement. Best of all, Custom Concrete will deliver for DIY jobs of all sizes.
How Does Mix On Site Concrete Work?
It couldn’t be simpler. The Custom Concrete calculator helps you to work out exactly how much concrete you will need for your job. If you are unsure, our customer service team will be able to help with volume, and the kind of mix you require.
Pick a time and date and we will deliver your concrete in one of our volumetric trucks. These keep the concrete ingredients separate until we reach the site. The concrete is then freshly mixed ready to be poured exactly where you need it.
What if the Site is Difficult to Access?
Not a worry! Our trucks are 10 metres long, 2.5 metres wide and 4 metres high. They have an excellent reach but where access is a challenge, we hire out line and boom pumps. The line pump extends the reach of the truck, and the boom pump reaches over obstacles. Alternatively, you may want to use a wheelbarrow to transport your concrete.
What if I Need Different Mixes?
If you need concrete for different kinds of jobs, such as paving and patios, we can create custom batches for you. All you need to do is let us know the kinds of jobs you need concrete for in advance and we will do the rest. If you find, on the day that you need to alter the volume or mix slightly, we can easily do that for you.
No Mess to Clear Up
Pouring concrete can be a messy process, especially if you are mixing it yourself. Custom Concrete is committed to minimising the disruption to your site. Mix on site concrete for DIY jobs ensures that your site is left mess-free and – because we only mix the amount you need – there is no waste concrete to dispose of.
We’re constantly looking for ways to make our concrete more sustainable. We recently changed to using CEM-II Eco Cement as a key ingredient in our mix on site concrete. CEM-II emits less carbon dioxide emissions in the production process and is therefore less harmful to the atmosphere. The cost of manufacturing CEM-II is also cheaper, which is helping us to keep our price rises to a minimum.
