When it comes to concrete, sand and gravel—we know a thing or two. Review our products below to see which one is just right for your next project. Whether you're building a new home or business, or simply updating your garden—we've got you covered.

What is Cement?

Cement is a fine powder that is the principal strength-giving and property-controlling component of concrete. People often confuse cement with concrete. Concrete is a mixture of cement, aggregates, and water that hardens to form a building material used for everything from sidewalks, homes, roads, bridges, dams, and skyscrapers. Cement is to concrete as flour is to cake. Concrete is second only to water as the most consumed substance on Earth, with almost one ton of it being used for each human every year.

Desired Properties of Concrete

The concrete mix is workable. It can be placed and consolidated properly by yourself or your workmen.

Desired qualities of the hardened concrete are met. For example, resistance to freezing and thawing and deicing chemicals, water-tightness (low permeability), wear resistance, and strength. It’s important to know what you are trying to achieve with the concrete.

Economy. Since the quality depends mainly on the water to cement ratio, the water requirement should be minimized to reduce the cement requirement (and thus reduce the cost).

Take these steps to reduce the water and cement requirements

  1. Use the stiffest mix possible.
  2. Use the largest size aggregate practical for the job.
  3. Use the optimum ratio of fine to coarse aggregate.

When it comes to concrete, we’ve got you covered. Finding the right type of concrete to satisfy your specific needs is what we do. We offer two main types.

GU is used for those applications where the concrete doesn't come into contact with the natural soils. Floor slabs, driveways, sidewalks, etc.

GU-Type 10

SR has a sulfate resistance blended into the cement and always the concrete to resist sulfate attacks. Common applications include: footing, piles, grade beams, etc. Basically any application where the concrete would be in contact with the soil directly. You can use an SR concrete in the same applications as the GU-type as well.

SR-Type 50
