With everything involved in planning and creating a poured concrete patio, sometimes thinking about the concrete material is completely forgotten! Ready-mix concrete consists of a mixture of aggregates and paste. The paste contains Portland cement and water and coats the surfaces of the aggregates. One of the best things about working with concrete is it is pliable and movable when freshly mixed and super strong and durable once it hardens.
Ready-mix concrete is a convenient choice for a variety of residential and commercial projects. If you are a homeowner or a contractor with small batch concrete mixing needs, we provide ready-mix concrete in short loads or small batches. We offer strengths ranging from 2,500 PSI to 5,000 PSI. We also provide fiber and admixtures for our customers.

Mixing and pouring ready-mix concrete correctly helps protect the integrity of the concrete, ensure that it is flat, air pockets are minimal, and prevent premature cracking. But before you pour the concrete, you need to make sure you have prepared your project successfully. Be sure to measure, mark and excavate the area correctly. The process requires the right equipment and steps to ensure a level surface.
Most people use a form of crushed stone below the concrete for improved drainage. Learning these and other tips and steps will help prepare for any residential DIY project.
