Helpful Concrete Tips

                    Tips for a successful concrete placement

  • Have yardage figured before ordering. Calculate length x width x depth divided by 27 = 1 cubic yard or use our Materials Calculator.
  • Let us know what kind of placement (walls, flatwork, interior, exterior).
  • Know your weather (temperature, winds, humidity, rain).
  • Dampen base down before placing concrete.
  • DO NOT ADD excessive water (1 gallon per yard equals 1” of slump).
  • Vapor barriers increase plastic shrinkage cracking (MasterFiber M100).
  • Most important part of your concrete placement is CURE YOUR CONCRETE.
  • Always give advance notification of your concrete order with clear and precise directions to the project.
