What is concrete? Put simply it is cement (often known as Portland Cement) mixed with water, fine aggregate (sand) or coarse aggregate (gravel or broken rocks) and sometimes different additives to speed or slow the curing and reinforce the concrete.
Concrete can be used in so many different ways and for so many different jobs at home, in building construction and national infrastructure projects. This can lead to confusion and ultimately ordering and using the wrong type / grade. At the end of the day we at CONCRETE247 (concrete247.com) will always be happy to talk to you about your requirement and ensure we deliver just what you need – just call us on 0330 223 3383 (it is only a local call charge).
There are many different grades / types /mixes of concrete. You may need a simple shed base or patio slab at home, footings for a house extension, kerb settings for a drive or roadway, lining a cellar to keep it dry or underpinning a building – all these need the correct grade of concrete to ensure the right composition and strength.
The varying correct composition and strength differentiates one grade from another. We at CONCRETE247 mix the ratios of cement, water, aggregate and additives in our volumetric mixer on site to your exact requirements.
