How Concrete Suppliers Help With Your Construction Project

Natalie Jaimes | July 17, 2022

Concrete has been used in construction projects throughout history and around the world. It remains a top choice when it comes to various construction projects because of how versatile, cost-effective, and durable the material is. When it comes to construction projects, choosing to work with local concrete suppliers can help you increase your site efficiency and access better quality mixes. Here, we’ve listed 6 ways that concrete suppliers can help you achieve the best outcome for your construction project.

Achieving Consistent Quality

Proper concrete mixing ensures that your construction project is durable and sustainable. Ready-mixed concrete must undergo strict quality control measures to guarantee the product’s consistency. Construction projects often employ multiple batches of concrete, and uniformity across all batches ensures that your concrete slabs, walls or footers can hold in place. High-quality concrete mixes also ensure that your structure can avoid cracking, resist abrasion, and withstand severe weather conditions.

Cost-Effective

When you engage a concrete supplier, you eliminate the need to purchase the equipment and raw materials that you’ll require if you’re mixing your concrete independently. You also save costs on labor and expertise, as a concrete supplier can package those into your costs for you. A concrete supplier can also help you save on storage and transportation costs for the raw materials that you’ll need during on-site construction mixing. Enjoy convenience and lower costs when you engage the services of a ready mix concrete supplier for your construction project.

Customize Your Orders

Fill mixes, structural mixes, self-consolidating, DOT mixes, and colored concrete necessitate unique mixtures of raw materials. Concrete suppliers can QA/QC to help you create a customized mix that serves your specific project and construction needs.

Exact Supply

Concrete suppliers use ready-made concrete mixers which help ensure precision. Trucks fitted with sensors can precisely measure the freshly mixed properties of concrete poured over your building’s foundation (e.g., slump). Given that most mixers deliver between 15 to 20 cubic yards of concrete per hour, it is essential that you use exact calculations when it comes to evaluating the volume of concrete you need for your project. This helps you avoid waste, and saves you costs, materials, time and labor.

Prompt Delivery

It is recommended that ready-mixed concrete be transported to the construction site within the hour. Constant delays could jeopardize and stall your project. A local concrete supplier can help you keep your construction project on schedule by instantly delivering your ready-mixed concrete. If you are working on an accelerated schedule, most suppliers can work with you to properly sequence delivery.

Eco-Friendly

On-site concrete mixing can produce a high amount of waste. Working with a reputable concrete supplier with an established track record can help you ensure that waste is either minimized or eliminated, since they have the experience to make precise calculations and deliver precise volumes of cement aggregates. Concrete is also a material that can be easily recycled and reused, which adds to its eco-friendly factor. Choose a supplier that emphasizes sustainability when it comes to their work.
