Is All Concrete Quality The Same?
Concrete may all look the same, but it certainly isn’t the same when it’s dry. You will need different strength mixes depending on the task at hand and the weight load that the concrete needs to bear. If you’re ordering concrete and you aren’t told what concrete strength you need when asked, consider that a huge red flag.
The downside to this is that concrete may not be as cheap as you would hope it to be. There is an age-old saying, if it sounds too good to be true, it almost certainly is. This is highlighted even more so when it comes to construction materials, the margin is already fine so if your concrete provider of choice is a lot cheaper than their competitors, you may very well end up with subpar concrete that will need to be replaced.
At our company, we understand that the quality of concrete is only as good as the materials used in the mixing process. That’s why we’re proud to say that we use only the finest products available to create our concrete mixes. We also strive to use locally sourced and eco-friendly materials to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible and help to support local businesses.
So how do we ensure our concrete is always top quality? Here’s how:
The foundation of any great concrete mix is high-quality cement. We source our cement from reputable suppliers known for producing top-tier products. This ensures that your concrete is strong, durable, and built to last.
We pay careful attention to the selection of aggregates we use in our product. These include sand, crushed stone, and gravel. Our rigorous testing and quality control measures guarantee that the aggregates used in our concrete are clean, well-graded, and free from impurities. This results in concrete that offers excellent workability, strength, and long-term stability.
Sometimes, achieving specific properties in concrete requires the use of admixtures. We carefully select and incorporate these additives to improve workability, enhance durability, and ensure the desired setting times. Our commitment to quality means that we use admixtures only when they truly add value to the mix.
Performing The Correct Concrete Quality Control
The process doesn’t stop at selecting the best materials. We follow stringent quality control procedures throughout the mixing process. This includes precise measurement and calibration of materials, rigorous testing, and continuous monitoring.
