Why Concrete Mixed On Site is Preferable

Why Concrete Mixed On-Site is Preferable

There are lots of different ways to order concrete, and much discussion as to which method is the best. At Custom Concrete we tend to hold our collective tongue as the debates rage on. Our evidence for why concrete mixed on-site is preferable comes from our clients. Once they have ordered from us once, they tend to stick with site mixed concrete – and their feedback tells us why.

In this blog, we review the benefits our customers report when choosing site mixed concrete.


On Site Mixing is Cost-Effective

There is no waste with site mixed concrete, because you pay only for what you use. Customers tell us that being able to use the Custom Concrete calculator to work out in advance how much they need, removes some of the stress of ordering. Then, to have the exact amount you need mixed on site, without any waste, is an obvious cost saving.

Volumetric Trucks Keep the Site Clean and in Order

Trying to order and store raw materials on site is more trouble than it is worth. A volumetric truck is a mobile batching plant, with all the mess of mixing contained. Batches are mixed, poured to where they are needed, and then the trucks roll on to the next client. Site mixing is an economic and efficient system which ups productivity, rather than slowing it down.

Site Mixed Concrete Provides the Flexibility Construction Requires

When you work in construction, nothing is straightforward. You need suppliers, therefore, who understand the nature of your job and can support you. Volumetric concrete fits the bill. The supplier is on site with you and can make tweaks in the batch size and specifications for you. Custom Concrete works with its customers to achieve the best outcomes.

Fresh Concrete is the Ideal for Construction

The quality of concrete is determined by its workability. Fresh concrete has the best workability in that it is easy to pour, form and finish and there is no separation of the ingredients. Volumetric trucks carry the raw ingredients separately to the site where the concrete is required. Once in place, the concrete is mixed and then poured straight away and pump hire is available if you need it.

Concrete is Mixed How You Want it

Custom Concrete always mixes to the exact requirements for the site. If you need different batches in one site visit, you simply make the request and it will be managed for you. The mixing is fast and the Custom Concrete staff are specialists when it comes to on site batches. Having experts delivering your concrete offers a level of support which isn’t present with other kinds of concrete delivery. Which is why concrete mixed on-site is preferable.
