Concrete Cost Or Quality, A Concrete Dilemma

Quality, speed, and cost form a challenging trio in the construction sector, and the concrete industry is no exception. The rising cost of materials combined with an oversaturation of concrete delivery companies has led many concrete firms in the industry to feel like they have to decide between the quality of concrete and cost.

For the consumer, opting for cheap concrete seems like the automatic choice. In the construction industry, though, this is not the case. The foundations of your walls, driveways, extensions, patios, etc, must be built on a quality base that will stand the test of time. This does come at a premium, though, and the need to use quality materials does tend to add up.

The supplier and the end user will bear these costs, but in the long run, it will save you both money and time.

Superior Concrete Through Craftsmenship

In the construction industry, superior craftsmanship often prevails due to a well-trained workforce, one of the many reasons that 365 Concrete has been operational for 40+ years.

We fully train our drivers to ensure our customers get the best service possible. The decades we’ve spent being at the cutting edge of concrete delivery in the UK have shown us that time and time again, using only high-grade, eco-friendly, and locally sourced materials will guarantee the end user quality concrete that is laid to last.

Unfortunately, there is a dark side to that. Other companies in the same industry have struggled to maintain those standards, worsened by a general disregard for skilled labour, with drivers and staff seen merely as replaceable.

This oversight, driven by a critical labour shortage, leads to filling positions without the necessary skill levels, resulting in compromised projects, a lack of quality control on materials, and, ultimately a poor end product and service.

It’s All In The Numbers

Statistically speaking, 50% to 70% of field workers lack education, experience, or training, placing them in high-risk situations prone to failure, injury, or worse.

These are not merely inefficiencies; but genuine safety risks on the job site. The age-old saying “You get what you pay for” has never been more true, especially in the construction sector.

Cheap concrete delivery may appear economical upfront and a great way to save money on large projects, but the eventual expenses for replacement, and structural failures can be steep and dangerous.


At 365 Concrete, our skilled concrete workers use our expertise to ensure all concrete projects are executed properly. From the moment we book the job, we strive to ensure that our customers receive the best service and concrete quality, even if it comes at a premium.
