Using Concrete







Concrete Is


Cost effective: Concrete lasts longer and requires less maintenance than other paving materials, which results in lower lifecycle costs.
Energy efficient: Buildings and homes with concrete walls use less energy to heat and
Sustainable: The making of cement, the key ingredient of concrete, uses many materials recycled from other industries that would otherwise be wasted
Ready-mixed concrete delivered from a minimum of 1/2 yard to whatever yardage is required; we pride ourselves on our service, quality product and competitive "small yardage" pricing. Our fleet of small, customized ready-mix trucks are able to deliver small yardage in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

We offer ready-mix concrete mixes for all applications-sidewalks, footings, walls, curbs, patios, hot tub slabs, driveways and lots more:

  • High quality ready-mix concrete. We do not use fly-ash in our mixes, only type 10 cement powder.
  • Standard ready-mix concrete from 20 mpa to 40 mpa and depending on your application-skim coat to driveways where rock size does matter
  • Sand mixes
  • Birds-eye (5-8 mm),
  • Torpedo (1/2" or 10-15 mm)
  • Standard rock (20 mm)
  • Specialized mixes such as exposed aggregate and stamp mix. We offer two sizes of rock in our exposed aggregate, birds-eye (5-8 mm) or torpedo (10-15 mm).
  • Stamp mix: a popular and decorative alternative to regular concrete. Colour can be added to enhance the look. From the look of brick, shale, to many other unique appearances, this might be something you want to consider.
With our fleet of small ready-mix trucks, we are able to access small driveways, back alleys and restricted areas where the larger standard-sized ready-mix trucks may be unable to go. Please see below our specifications of our fleet. By clicking on the stars, you can view the specifications of the different areas of the truck.
  • Single-Axle Trucks (Small) - capacity of 3 ¾ cubic yards (3 meters)
  • Dual-axle Trucks (Larger) - capacity up to 6 yards (4.8 meters)
